The Advanced Syringe Gun is a Handheld Ranged Weapon in Barotrauma.


The Advanced Syringe Gun is a two-handed long-range small-size medical weapon. It is an upgrade over the regular Syringe Gun, and just like it is capable of administering some Medical Items to crew members at a range but has double the magazine capacity and a built-in Health Scanner HUD. While it can be used beneficially, for instance injecting a wounded crewmate with Morphine from a distance, the Advanced Syringe Gun can also be used for applying sedatives and poisons such as Chloral Hydrate or Raptor Bane Extract to hostile characters or Creatures.

It can be crafted by a Medical Doctor with the Delivery System talent, or it can be purchased from Husk Merchants, provided the player has at least 50 Reputation with The Church of Husk.


The Advanced Syringe Gun is held with both hands and must be loaded with injectable Medical Items to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Mouse Right-click to take aim, then by Left Mouse Left-clicking to shoot/use.

  • It has a built-in Health Scanner HUD, which can replace the one worn in the headgear slot, making room for some other headwear.
  • The Advanced Syringe Gun can be loaded with up to 8 Medical Items that have the "syringe" tag.
  • Medical Items fired from the Advanced Syringe Gun that hit a wall or something other than a character will be destroyed.
  • Medical Items fired from the Advanced Syringe Gun have the same effect that they would have when applied manually.
