Max Pump Speed 1000

A deployable fast pump that requires a battery.

Can only be crafted by a Mechanic with Let it Drain.


Pumps 10 times faster than a small pump, but quickly depletes its battery.

Should be used for damage control, since it cannot receive a constant source of power.

The Portable Pump is placed by aiming with Right Right-Click and then Left Left-Clicking to attach it to a surface. It can be detached using a Wrench. Only 2 can be deployed in a submarine.

It has similar wiring to a pump, but cannot have power wired so it requires a Battery Cell.png Battery Cell or a Fulgurium Battery Cell.png Fulgurium Battery Cell which lasts twice as long.

  • Drains power while active
  • A Battery Cell lasts 10 seconds, a Fulgurium Battery Cell lasts 20 seconds
