Usage[]

Unlike other armors, each piece of SCUBA provides a different effect.

The  SCUBA Mask will allow you to see much better underwater, but restricts your field of view as if you were looking through a mask. When riding a creature in third person, you will not receive the enhanced vision, your field of view will still be restricted.

The  SCUBA Tank will restore 20  Oxygen per second while underwater, effectively allowing you to breathe for as long as the tank lasts. The durability on the tank is a measure of its remaining operation time, with a total use time of 1800 seconds (30 minutes). The durability decreases by 0.025 points per second when worn, whether you are in the water or not. When the durability runs out, the item will no longer function and must be repaired. It used to restore 1.6  Stamina per second while underwater, which allowed you to swim for as long as the tank lasted, but this feature has been removed as of version 275.

The  SCUBA Leggings provide the wearer with 200 cold protection when in the water, but none when on land. These make it easier to withstand the colder temperatures of the deep ocean.

The  SCUBA Flippers multiply the wearer's swim speed by 2.5, but slows their walking speed on land. These make the player much more agile in the water, allowing them to more effectively explore the ocean, or escape predators.

Notes[]

  • The SCUBA Armor set does not include gloves. It is recommended to bring  Riot Gauntlets, as the SCUBA set offers almost no physical protection.
    • In the opposite way, survivor may choose not to wear any gloves, nor the SCUBA Leggings as well. This will make the armor value equals 0, cause all the other SCUBA gear take no durability damage when the player is attacked.
  • Bringing extra tanks will allow you to stay underwater longer.
  • If a survivor has high oxygen stats, SCUBA Tank can be used as a consumable to refill oxygen, and take it of when the oxygen is full, because SCUBA Tank refills oxygen quicker than the rate a survivor consumes oxygen, making one SCUBA Tank lasts much longer.

Trivia[]

  • SCUBA is an acronym for "Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus"
