The Fire Extinguisher is a tool that can be acquired in Barotrauma. Like the Storage Container, it cannot be placed in the player's numbered hotbar slots, and must be dropped before equipping another tool.
The fire extinguisher's main function, as its name indicates, is to extinguish fires.
While in use the fire extinguisher's condition will decay at 2%/s. Its current condition is displayed underneath its icon in the player's hotbar. Once depleted, it can be deconstructed as it can't be refilled.
Fire extinguishers are essential in stopping fires from spreading to sensitive parts of the submarine. Alternatively, flooding the affected compartment can be an effective strategy for stopping fires, should there be no fire extinguishers available.
Fire extinguishers can also be used underwater to act as a makeshift propulsion system.
The fire extinguisher is held with both hands. Aiming is done by holding down the right-click button. Holding down the left-click button will then activate it, affecting any fires within its range.
It can be stored in a Fire Extinguisher Bracket. It is one of the few "medium" items in the game, and as such can't be stored in Portable Containers (except Metal Crates) or certain submarine containers.
Using an Outpost's fire extinguisher when there is a fire is not considered stealing and you will not receive a reputation penalty.
