The Depth Charge is a submarine-mounted weapon. It can be used to lure enemies towards itself and deal damage upon impact. It is composed of the Depth Charge Tube, the Depth Charge Loader and a trigger, using depth charges as ammunition. When triggered, a loaded depth charge is deployed out of the tube to slowly sink. Upon impact, the depth charge will activate its payload.


Function and Usage

Depth charges are typically triggered via a Button or Navigation Terminal. When triggered, the tube deploys a depth charge shell from a loaded Depth Charge Loader. Unlike other submarine weapons, the Depth Charge uniquely requires no power.

  • Depth Charge Shells and Nuclear Depth Charges sink downwards, and will activate their payload upon impact with the sea floor or monster or a submarine.
    • Depth Charge Shells are typically only useful for bombing wrecks or enemy submarines, since they are extremely difficult to land on anything else.
  • Once deployed, Depth Charges become vulnerable to damage and are able to be destroyed, which will detonate their payload.

Damage Values

Depth Charge Shells are hollow and can be filled with an item. The payload will be activated on impact, or in the case of Decoys, after 45 seconds. Explosives in particular can be loaded in shells to greatly increase damage potential. While throwable grenades work, 40mm grenades do not.
