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 Harpoon Gun is a handheld weapon that can be acquired in Barotrauma.
Function[edit | edit source]
Harpoon guns act as short-range weaponry by firing spears. Loaded spears can be fired short distances both on board a submarine and underwater. Upon striking another crew member, creature or wall, the spear will become lodged in the target.
Fired spears deliver a low amount of damage and apply a moderate bleeding effect. However, they are capable of stunning the target, which can prove useful should the player need to escape from a hostile situation.
Spears can be recovered and reused after firing.
It should be noted that an inadequate Weapons skill (less than 30) will lessen the range of the harpoon gun.
Usage[edit | edit source]
The harpoon gun requires both hands to equip and must be manually loaded before firing. By default, the right mouse button aims the harpoon gun toward the cursor. Left-clicking will then fire a spear in the corresponding direction.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Pre-release videos for Barotrauma showed that spears were originally going to have a rope attached between them and the harpoon gun. This would allow the player to retract a spear back into the barrel of the gun after launching it.
