The Welding Tool is a tool that can be operated in Barotrauma. It is one of the most essential tools, as it allows crew members to repair the submarine.

Function

Welding Tools are used to repair structures such as walls and windows. They can also be used to seal doors and hatches. The only way to un-seal a door is by using a Plasma Cutter.

Structures being affected by the welding tool are highlighted by a rectangle. The color of said rectangle determines the condition of the structure: a greener color indicating that the structure is in a stable condition and a redder color to reflect a poor condition. When the structure is about to break the rectangle will begin dissipating. Sealing a door will have a grey progress bar.

Usage

The Welding Tool requires both hands to equip. Holding down the right-click (mouse2) button will aim it in whichever direction your cursor is positioned. Holding down the left-click (mouse1) button will activate the tool, affecting any structures within its range.

If a player attempts to use a welding tool without the appropriate skill level, the Welding Fuel Tank will be used up 3 times faster.
