The Stun Gun is a Handheld Ranged Weapon in Barotrauma.


The Stun Gun is a one-handed ranged weapon. It shoots Stun Darts which can stun targets from a safe distance. The Stun Gun is most commonly used to temporarily incapacitate humans, be that unruly crew members or traitors in order to take any weapons they have and Handcuff them, or creatures to make them easier targets.

It can be crafted by anybody, and bought on many Outposts.


The Stun Gun is held with one hand and must be loaded with Stun Gun Darts or Fulgurium Stun Gun Darts to be used. 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.

  • The stun gun has a single slot which can contain up to 2 Stun Darts.
  • Stun Gun Darts inflict Progressive Stun, gradually slowing the victim and stunning after about 10s, if hit by at least one dart.
  • Fulgurium Stun Gun Darts inflict Stun, stunning the victim immediately – this stun stacks with multiple hits, but lasts shorter on a single hit than a normal Stun Dart's stun.
  • It's a useful weapon for restraining or capturing Humans. It's done by grabbing a stunned person, placing Handcuffs in their inventory, and pressing the "Equip" button above them.
