The Tiger Thresher is a ray-finned fish beast that manifests within Barotrauma.

Description[edit | edit source]

Tiger Threshers are barracuda-like fish with six lateral fins, the last pair modified into tendrils. Their slender body is silvery with darker stripes (hence the moniker of "tiger") and spots, including a black stripe around its neck. Tiger Threshers have three pairs of eyes and a jaw filled with small but razor-sharp teeth. Its chin presents a "beard" of small tooth-like extensions. The underbelly features light blue, presumably bioluminescent, spots. Its scales are small, except on the head and upper torso, where they increase in size.

Tiger Threshers can be found alone or appear in pods of up to three individuals.

In-game[edit | edit source]

Tiger Threshers are capable of doing massive damage to a submarine and its crew with a single attack. They will favor going after humans out in the water, and their razor-sharp teeth inflict heavy bleeding on their prey.

The Railgun is an effective way of dealing with Tiger Threshers, taking between 1 and 3 shots to dispatch one. In the event that a player plans on being outside during a Tiger Thresher attack, it is suggested they exit the submarine with an Underwater Scooter to increase their mobility and Bandages to heal the haemorrhagic wounds the creature will try to inflict.

Tiger Threshers are one of the many creatures that prey on lesser creatures such as Crawlers. Should a deceased Tiger Thresher be nearby, any living Tiger Threshers will cease their current action in order to cannibalize the corpse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Tiger Threshers possess similar traits to that of the Coelanths, such as their three pairs of eyes and tail. This may hint at a taxonomic proximity.
  • The Coelanth, Tiger Thresher and Scorpion all use the same sound files.
