The Wrench is a tool that can be acquired in Barotrauma.

Function[edit | edit source]

The wrench's primary function is to perform mechanical repairs on installations which are in need of them.

They can also be used to detach certain devices from walls or installations - an example of this is removing electrical components which have been attached to installations or buttons that are attached to walls.

Crew members are capable of using wrenches as a melee weapon. However, it only inflicts minimal damage.

Usage[edit | edit source]

When the character has the appropriate skill level, pressing E on the installation which needs to be repaired will start fixing it.

Pressing left-click (mouse1) on an attached item will start detaching it, this is displayed with a bar on the item, it will slowly get filled up until the item is detached from the wall.

Once equipped, the player can hold down right-click (mouse2) to ready the wrench for a melee strike, indicated by the character lifting the tool above their head. Left-clicking (mouse1) will then swing the tool.
