The Harpoon Gun is a handheld weapon that can be acquired in Barotrauma.
Harpoon guns act as short-to-medium-range light weaponry, firing harpoons at a high velocity. The Harpoon gun is effective both on board of the submarine and underwater, and upon striking another crew member, a creature or a wall, the harpoon may become lodged in the target (note: this does not apply to the Explosive Harpoon) and can usually be recovered and reused. This property (plus the small material cost of the Ammunition) makes the Harpoon Gun a very efficient weapon.
It should be noted that Characters with inadequate Weapons skill (less than 30) will be affected by greatly increased spread, reducing the effective accuracy of the gun.
The Harpoon Gun is held with both hands and must be loaded with a Harpoon, an Explosive Harpoon, a Physicorium Harpoon or Ahab's Spear to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right-click to take aim, then by Left-clicking to shoot/use.
- Fired Harpoons may be picked up as any other item with Left Mouse Button by default, and reloaded into the Harpoon gun.
- Harpoons stack up to 6, and cannot be put into Storage Containers or Toolbelts.
- Only one ammo type can be loaded into a harpoon gun at a time.

- Pre-release videos for Barotrauma showed that harpoons were originally going to have a rope attached between them and the harpoon gun. This would allow the player to retract a harpoon back into the barrel of the gun after launching it.
