The Harpoon Gun is a handheld weapon that can be acquired in Barotrauma.
Function[edit | edit source]
Harpoon guns act as short-to-medium-range weaponry by firing harpoons at a high velocity. The Harpoon gun is effective both on board of the submarine and underwater, and upon striking another crew member, creature or wall, the harpoon may become lodged in the target (does not apply to the Explosive Harpoon) and can usually be recovered and reused. This property (plus the small material cost of the Ammunition) makes the Harpoon Gun a very reliable weapon.
It should be noted that Characters with inadequate Weapons skill (less than 30) will suffer from a greatly increased spread, greatly reducing the effective accuracy of the gun.
Usage[edit | edit source]
The harpoon gun requires both hands to be equipped and must be manually loaded with individual Harpoons before firing. By default, the right mouse button aims the harpoon gun toward the cursor. Left-clicking will then fire a harpoon in the corresponding direction.
Fired Harpoons may be picked up as any other item with Left Mouse Button by default, and reloaded into the Harpoon gun.

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