The Hardened Screwdriver is a Tool in Barotrauma.

Description

The Hardened Screwdriver is a one-handed tool which can be used as a Melee Weapon. Its an upgrade over the regular Screwdriver as it repairs 25% faster, inflicts more Lacerations, a bit of Radiation Sickness and additionally has a good amount of Armor Penetration. Despite that it should still only be used as a last resort for smaller Creatures like Crawlers, but the armor penetration also makes fighting with Creatures like Mudraptors possible but still very dangerous. Its main purpose is performing electrical repairs on installations. It is also used to rewire Connection Panels of any installations or electrical components.


It can be crafted by an Engineer with the Heavy Hitter talent unlocked; It cannot be bought.

Function

The Hardened Screwdriver is held with one hand. 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 can be used to repair electrical installations by pressing the "Use" keybind (E by default) on an installation to open the repair GUI and starting the repairs.
    • Attempting a repair while not having the required Electrical Engineering skill takes a lot longer and presents a risk of failure, which interrupts the repair and inflicts Burn and Stun.
  • It can also be used to rewire Connection Panels of any installations or electrical components inside the repair GUI.
    • Attempting a rewiring while not having the required Electrical Engineering skill presents a high risk of failure, which interrupts the rewiring and inflicts Burn and Stun.
  • Its one-handed, meaning it can be dual-wielded, essentially doubling the DPS, but it does not increase the repair speed.
  • The Hardened Screwdriver gains 10% Repair Speed per quality level. (10% / 20% / 30%)
