Overview[edit | edit source]

The SCUBA Tank is a chest-slot item from the SCUBA Armor set. It is extremely useful for underwater exploration, as it supplies 20 Oxygen per second to the player while underwater, and despite the description, does not require the SCUBA Mask to supply Oxygen.

Considering that a player normally cannot replenish Oxygen while underwater, this item effectively allows them to swim freely unimpeded by regular oxygen limitations. Unlike other armor, the SCUBA Tank's durability is constantly decreasing while worn underwater by 0.025 durability per second, similar to the way a Torch's durability would decrease; the durability is thus a measure of its remaining operational time, supplying a maximum of 1800 seconds (30 minutes) of Oxygen at engram quality. When the durability runs out, it will no longer be usable until it is repaired at a Fabricator.

Because the durability is depleted at a flat rate while worn, it is possible to micromanage equipping and removing the tank to replenish oxygen only as needed, greatly extending the mileage. This can be useful when you only have a little durability left and are deep in a cave.

Higher Item Quality SCUBA tanks and their Blueprints with higher durability and thus longer operational times can be found in Deep Sea Loot Crates.
