Hello visitor! A note about the contents of this wiki: Barotrauma is a game with several years' worth history as a free-download open source game, and this wiki has been written primarily based on this legacy version. As such, not all content is relevant to the Steam release. So please wait patiently as the contents are updated, and feel free to contribute new information once the Steam version of Barotrauma is released!

The Electric Discharge Coil is a submarine installed weapon. It is a short range electric shock, dealing burn damage and a moderate duration stun in an area around itself. Additionally, the shock can travel along the hull of the submarine, shocking anything touching the hull. It has a massive power draw and therefore should be used tactically.


Most discharge coils have a 5 meter radius.
