The Hardened Diving Knife is a Melee Weapon in Barotrauma.

Description

The Hardened Diving Knife is a one-handed melee weapon. It is an upgrade over the regular Diving Knife, trading some of the Bleeding for more direct Lacerations and additionaly Radiation Sickness and a good amount of Armor Penetration. It has a very short range with a high attack speed. Despite having bigger damage and armor penetration than its weaker counterpart its use in combat is still relatively limited, usually only being able to effectively overpower Crawlers in most cases, altough the armor penetration makes it somewhat usable when fighting more armored Creatures like Mudraptors.


It can be crafted by an Engineer with the Heavy Hitter talent unlocked; It cannot be bought.

Function

The Hardened Diving Knife 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.

  • Its one-handed, meaning it can be dual-wielded, essentially doubling the DPS.
