The Chaingun is a Submarine Weapon in Barotrauma. Similar to other Submarine Weapons, it requires a loader to be linked to it for ammo.

Functions & Usage

Chainguns shoot high velocity projectiles that deal damage to anything they hit. With their high rate of fire and wide spread, they make for good crowd control weapons. However, user must wary of ammunition running out fast due to high ammo consumption per damage dealt thanks to spread, as well as ammo crates holding inadequate ammunition for high firerate. Combined with ammo crates being relatively expensive to craft, this makes Chaingun substantially more costly to afford using compared to other weapons.
Like other Turrets, Periscopes are typically used to aim and fire Chainguns. Firing Chainguns draws power from their connected Supercapacitors, as well as ammunition from their linked Loaders.

Ammunition

There are 2 types of Chaingun ammunition:
Standard; good for when you need to conserve Physicorium ammunition.
Physicorium; better than the Standard ammunition due to its slightly higher damage and chance to stun.
