The Clown Ensemble is a set of clothes that can be acquired in Barotrauma. It is divided into two different pieces of clothing: the Clown Costume and the Clown Mask, and is usually associated with the Bike Horn. Unique variant of the suit and mask, namely Mother's Providence and Mother's Countenance, are rarely found in wrecks cabinets.

While the Clown Costumes are purely cosmetic, the Clown Masks can also be used to hide one's identity.

Wearing the outfit will usually arouse suspicion and distrust among command and security personnel. It is wise to be careful while it is in one's possession as it is associated with traitorous acts and general mischief.

Wearing the clown mask while playing the guitar will play an unique music.

Unique Variant

Mother's Providence and Mother's Countenance are unique aesthetical variants of the suit and mask, respectively. They are rarely looted from wrecks cabinets (1% chance per cabinet).


Many of the default submarines contain the standard clown costume or bike horn hidden throughout the ship as well as many other steam workshop subs. Of the 7 main submarines, 5 contain pieces of the standard clown ensemble:

- on the Humpback, the clown suit, mask, and bike horn can be found inside the right ballast.
- on the Orca, a bike horn can be found inside the lockers in the crew cabins.
- on the Remora, a clown mask can be found inside the lockers in the crew cabins.
- on the Typhon, a clown suit, mask, and horn can be found inside the lockers in the crew cabins.
- on the Berilia, a clown suit, mask, and horn can be found in a room to the right of the upper junction boxes. The keycard to access the room can be found in the left-most ballast.
- on the Kastrull, a clown suit can be found in the eastern crew quarters, in a locker.


  • The Clown Ensemble is in all likelihood included as a nod to the Clown job on Space Station 13, as Barotrauma is greatly inspired by this game.
  • Getting shot while wearing the Clown Ensemble plays a sound that of a clown nose honking.
  • Using the guitar while wearing the Clown Ensemble makes the character play the circus theme. While the Clown Diving Mask counts as part of the Clown Ensemble, wearing it does not cause the character to play the circus theme with the guitar.
  • When asked what the in-universe purpose of the clown gear was, Regalis said, "it was an attempt to lighten the mood and help the crew cope in a high-stress environment. The experiment wasn't as successful as the higher-ups had hoped and now all there is left to remind of it are the few blood-stained clown costumes laying around in some remote corners of some of the subs.[1]"
