The Diving Suit is an Outerwear.


The Diving Suit is an protective and pressure resistant Outerwear. It provides fairly high protection against many Afflictions, most importantly Pressure Protection for depths up to 4000 meters. It incorporates a built-in light and a breathing gas supply that allows the user to breathe underwater, provided that the breathing supplies are filled. Due to its weight and construction it slows down its user, reduces their field of view and muffles certain sounds. Its the standard Diving Suit that all submarines start with, and the weakest one, providing the least protection to both Afflictions and Pressure as well as slowing movement speed of the user; For this reason it should generally be upgraded into a Combat Diving Suit as soon as materials are available.

It can be crafted by anyone or bought at any Outpost.


The Diving Suit can be worn in the Outerwear slot.

  • When worn it protects all limbs, has an additional 50% chance to completely resist Husk Infection and provides Pressure Protection for up to 4000 meters depth. To safely dive deeper a more pressure resistant Diving Suit is required.
    • It also slows down its user's Movement Speed by 20%.
  • It requires a Breathing Supply item inserted into it to provide Oxygen to the user, otherwise they will suffocate.
  • It has a built-in light that doesn't require a battery and will work as long as the user is alive.
  • It reduces the user's field of view.
  • It can't be stored in the inventory, only held with both hands or stored in a Diving Suit Locker where it replenishes its Oxygen Tank automatically, provided that the Locker is powered.
