The Underwater Scooter is a battery-powered underwater propulsion device. It can be used to travel faster while in water, and can also provide light while doing so.


The underwater scooter can be used to propel yourself through the water faster than swimming can.

However, when used, nearby creatures will be attracted to the noise and light of the scooter and attack players using it.

It is recommended to bring a scooter on most dives for quicker completion times.


To use it, hold right-click and activate it by holding left-click.

The spotlight effect works everywhere, however propulsion can only work when underwater.

Usage requires a battery in the ammunition slot.
