The Status Monitor is an installation in Barotrauma. It allows players to quickly ascertain the level of water present in each section of the submarine, making attempts to find and fix floodings much easier.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Using the Status Monitor will bring up a schematic of the current submarine, in which every area is represented by white-bordered rectangles. The horizontal borders divide each layer based on ceiling/floor placement, while the vertical borders indicate where doors are located.

When an area of the submarine begins filling with water, the Status Monitor will update to show the current level of water in that section, signified by the area on the map filling up with the color blue. It will not display openings through which the water is flowing from, such as open doors or hull breaches. Areas containing pumps, such as ballast tanks, will also display as being flooded due to the nature of how they work.

This item can prove useful for isolating the location where floods are occurring,
