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

Functions & Usage

Coilguns shoot high velocity bolts that deal damage to anything they hit. With their moderate rate of fire, and typically inexpensive ammunition, they can make for good defensive weapons.
Like other Turrets, Periscopes are typically used to aim and fire Coilguns. Firing Coilguns draws power from connected Supercapacitors, as well as ammunition from linked Loaders.

Ammunition

There are 5 types of Coilgun ammunition:
Standard: typically used when there are not enough resources to craft other types of ammunition.
Depleted Fuel: only craftable by an Engineer with the Military Applications talent, inflicts Radiation Sickness and has considerable armor penetration.
Exploding: typically used against smaller creatures due to it being able to one or two shot them.
Physicorium: good all-rounder against unarmored targets, has almost twice the standard damage.
Piercing: good all-rounder against armored targets due to its armor piercing capabilities and the fact that it can hit 2 limbs in its line of fire.
