The Europan Handshake is a Melee Weapon in Barotrauma.


The Europan Handshake is a unique one handed melee weapon. Its an upgrade over the regular Diving Knife, the differences being a 1.1x Damage Multiplier and the addition of Morbusine Poisoning, which slowly suffocates the target if not treated. It can also be sold for more marks, or deconstructed into Morbusine.

It has a 5% chance to spawn in Secure Steel Cabinets in Wrecks and Pirate Subs.


The Europan Handshake is held with one hand. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Mouse Right-click to take aim, then by Left Mouse Left-clicking to shoot/use.

  • The Morbusine Poisoning is only useful when fighting against Humans as all other Creatures are not harmed by it.
  • Its one-handed, meaning it can be dual-wielded, essentially doubling the DPS.
