The Fire Extinguisher is a tool that can be acquired in Barotrauma.

Function[edit | edit source]

The fire extinguisher's main function, as its name indicates, is to extinguish fires.

While in use the fire extinguishers condition will slowly decay, the current condition of it is displayed in the player's hotbar. Once depleted, it can be scrapped as there is no way to refill it.

Fire extinguishers are essential in stopping fires from spreading to sensitive parts of the submarine. Alternatively, flooding the section on fire can also be a sub-optimal solution of dealing with them, should there be no fire extinguishers available.

Fire extinguishers can also be used underwater to act as a makeshift propulsion system.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The fire extinguisher requires both hands to equip. Holding down the right-click (mouse 2) button will aim it in whichever direction your cursor is positioned. Holding down the left-click (mouse 1) button will activate it, affecting any fires within its range.
