Player wearing a Diving Suit.
|Item Cost||225 Credits|
The Diving Suit is a full-body suit that can be acquired in Barotrauma.
Function[edit | edit source]
A diving suit lets the player use a breathing apparatus while underwater, such as an Oxygen Tank. In addition, the gear also protects the player from the ocean's water pressure, allowing them to swim outside of the submarine without getting crushed. In abyssal crush depth, however, the suit will not protect the wearer.
Players wearing diving suits will move slower and have limited vision compared to those without them. The added weight also makes it harder to climb Ladders. An Oxygen Tank is necessary to use the suit.
If the player equips the suit without Oxygen Tank placed inside the suit, they will quickly suffocate. Be careful not to put a Welding Fuel Tank in the suit, as this will kill anyone wearing it in 5 seconds.
Diving suits have a light which illuminates a small area in front of the player, this light will be on as long as the player is alive.
A player wearing a diving suit receives less damage from certain sources and, additionally, reduced bleeding. Burn damage is reduced by 40%, blunt damage by 20% (with bleeding amount reduced by 70%), and slash damage by 50% (preventing bleeding entirely).
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Husks wear diving suits, albeit with a different texture featuring a smashed-open helmet. Their suits cannot be removed but it was possible in an earlier version to remove the suit by assuming control of a Husk via console commands. Removing the suit in this manner would not change the husk's appearance.
