The Hardened Crowbar is a tool which can be acquired in Barotrauma.


Crowbars can be used to force-open locked Doors and Hatches, similarly to the Plasma Cutter, although with out the destruction of the door or hatch. A hardened crowbar will open a door about ~40% faster than a normal crowbar. Irrespective of quality.
Unlike plasma cutters, crowbars are much faster and won't destroy the doors upon opening, but are unable to un-seal doors which are welded shut.
It can also be used as a blunt weapon.


  • Force-opening doors and hatches - Press the "Use" keybind (Default: E) on a door
    • Note: Only doors that the character doesn't have access to can be forced open with a crowbar
  • Attacking - Hold the "Aim" keybind (Default:RightRMB) to ready the crowbar for an attack, then press the "Shoot" keybind (Default:LeftLMB) to swing the crowbar.
