The Diving Suit is a full-body outerwear suit that protects against pressure damage (also known as Barotrauma).

Function[edit | edit source]

A diving suit lets the player breath while underwater, when an oxygen source is placed inside the suit. 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 while above abyssal crush depth.

Players wearing diving suits will move slower and have limited vision compared to those without them.

If the player equips the suit without an Oxygen Tank placed inside the suit, they will quickly suffocate.

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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Husks wear diving suits with a broken viewport and orange-tinted texture. Currently, their suits cannot be removed but it was possible in earlier versions to remove the suit by assuming control of one via Console Commands. However, removing the suit in this manner would not change the husk's appearance[1].
  • A full Welding Fuel Tank or an Incendium Fuel Tank can be inserted into the oxygen supply slot to inflict Oxygen Loss damage faster than having nothing in the slot.
