The Husk (Legacy) is a human-based enemy that can manifest in Barotrauma.


Husks take on the form of Human divers which have become infected and taken over by an instance of Velonaceps Calyx. Their appearance is equivalent to that of a regular crew member wearing a Diving Suit, with the biggest difference being one large stingers protruding out of their broken helmets.

Due to the broken diving suit, the parasite must be capable of adapting both the human body and its organs to withstand the cold temperatures and high pressures exerted by the ocean.


Husks act primarily as disruptive enemies. They can enter the submarine through hull breaches (which they cannot cause) like most small monsters, however they also possess the peculiar ability to open doors. This allows them to infiltrate the submarine from the outside as well as enter any room in the submarine while chasing crew members. They can also slowly break said doors down, meaning that welding them inside a room won't keep them trapped forever.

They are easily distinguished from normal diving suit-wearing crew due to the tendril in their headgear, as well as the rusted, grimy look of the outer layer of the suit.

Husks will not attack characters in the late stage of husk infection unless attacked first.
