Chaingun

A powerful multiple-barrel turreted weapon, based on coilgun technology. Though somewhat unwieldy and slow to wind up to its firing state, its capability to deliver a hail of high-velocity metal at any would-be foe is unparalleled.

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 projectiles that deal damage to anything they hit. With their high rate of fire and wide spread, they make for good crowd control weapons.
It has a 1-second "spin-up" period before firing.

Chainguns are placed in the middle in terms of DPS, with effectively almost twice the DPS compared to Coilguns, but still half the DPS of Pulse Lasers.

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 3 types of Chaingun ammunition:

  • Standard; good for when you need to conserve/don't have other types of ammunition.
  • Physicorium; better than the Standard ammunition due to its considerably higher damage and stun, on par with standard Pulse Laser.
  • Shredder; same raw damage than the Standard ammunition but higher bleeding, penetration and limb severance chance.
