The Auto-Injector Headset is a Headset in Barotrauma.


Just like the regular Headset its used to communicate with fellow crewmembers or give them orders, but additionally it has a built-in Auto-Injector that can fit a single Syringe of any kind. Radio channels can be switched, allowing different groups to set their own in order to communicate over the radio with each other but not the rest of the crew. The sheer amount of possible channels makes it possible to secretly use one of them, and the chances of someone stumbling across it is very low. An another useful feature is the possibility of sending commands to a Wifi Component, as they use the same channel system and receive all text messages sent on their set channel.

It can be crafted by an Medical Doctor with the Medical Companion talent unlocked.


The Auto-Injector Headset can be worn in the Headset slot.

  • It has a slot that can contain a single syringe of any kind, similar to the PUCS, which is automatically used on the wearer when they drop below 50% vitality.
    • If wearing both the Auto-Injector Headset and PUCS, they will use their item simultaneously upon reaching the threshold.
  • It can be used to listen to the text-based radio, to give and receive orders, and to listen/speak over many voice radio channels in the range of 350 meters.
    • To speak over voice radio chat, toggle chat modes to select Radio (Default: R) and hold Push-to-talk (Default: V). There is also the possibility of binding Local Chat and Radio Chat to seperate keys in the settings.
    • There are 10001 accessible radio channels (channel 0000-10000). They can be directly typed in or switched to using the "<" or ">" buttons.
      • The channel display can only display 4 digits, meaning channel 10000 cannot be accesed directly by typing in its number, only by switching to it from channel 9999. That will cause the display to show "1000", even though the channel is correctly set as "10000".
      • The current radio channel can be saved as a preset in one of the 10 preset slots by pressing the "mem" button. They are set to channels 0000-0009 by default.
