The Harpoon Gun is a handheld weapon that can be acquired in Barotrauma.
Function[edit | edit source]
Harpoon guns act as short-range weaponry that fires projectile-based ammunition. When loaded with spears, it can fire them short distances. Upon striking another crew member, creature or wall, it will stick in them.
The damage done by the spear is weak and inflicts minimal bleeding on the target. However, it is capable of stunning the target, which can prove useful should the player need to escape from a hostile situation.
Spears are able to be picked up after firing one.
Usage[edit | edit source]
The harpoon gun requires both hands to equip. Holding down the right-click (mouse2) button will aim the weapon in whichever direction your cursor is positioned. Left-clicking (mouse1) will then fire the loaded ammunition.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Pre-release videos for the game 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.
