Barotrauma Improved Husks Guide has mostly everything about the Barotrauma Improved Husks mod.
Improved Husks The Improved Husks mod mod aims to improve and expand the influence of the mysterious “husk parasite” in the world of Barotrauma in many ways. Core Features -Every single biological creature in
The Improved Husks mod, as the name implies, improves husks and greatly increases their influence in the world of Barotrauma, making it a much bigger threat than it was originally.
It primarily implements new monsters and new items, and in this guide we’ll explore their more interesting features in detail.
Mutant Husks are more powerful and usually possess new characteristics not present in their normal husked counterparts.
All mutants except cocoons have a chance of containing unstable husk eggs in their loot upon being killed.
Husked monsters can transform into their mutant versions through some type of metamorphosis.
Depending on the size of the mutant monster developing inside, the cocoon can either be terrestrial (small) or aquatic (big).
It is possible to determine what kind of mutant will hatch from the cocoon through the silhouette inside their yellow sacs.
These monsters will never spawn on their own, but must always be created, either manually by the players or through other means. If not killed quickly, they will cause an explosion and the mutant husk inside of them will emerge.
Mutant Husked Crawler
Mutant Husked Mudraptor
The mutant mudraptor gains the ability to shoot a vile ball of corrosive bile that will melt the submarine hull from a distance. This ability can also be used against character, dealing burn damage and infecting them with the husk infection.
Mutant Husked Human
The mutant human is a relatively simple and frail enemy which can be dismembered easily.
Being dismembered will however not cause its death, but rather simply changing its shape and size, making it harder to hit.
It becomes especially dangerous if reduced to just a skittering head by being repeatedly shot. In this state, it will look for humans and attempt to hijack their body by taking the place of their real head. This process, if started, can be prevented by shooting the mutant head off of the human, however it must be done quickly, or the result will be… Less than ideal.
Armored Mutant Husk
The armored mutant husk is a special type of human mutant that is wearing a diving suit.
In order to kill it efficiently, you must first shoot its helmet off of its head, which is its weak point. Shooting the unarmored head will yield much better results than shooting at it in any other place.
Hunter Mutant Husk
The hunter mutant husk is another type of human mutant which gains the ability to store and throw the severed heads of mutant humans. The skull on its head offers protection similiar to the armored mutant husk’s helmet, and it can also be shot off.
Mutant Husked Threshers
Mutant threshers are powerful aquatic mutants which gain the ability to paralyse their victims in order to maximize the chances of succesfully turning them. The paralyzant injected by them is known as “black toxin”, which not only slowly paralyzes its victims, but also helps the infection spread much more quickly than normal. This toxin can be cured only through the use of calyxanide.
Unstable Husk Eggs
Unstable husk eggs are obtained by killing mutant husks.
Their primary function is to start the “husk mutation” process by being injected into husked creatures. Injecting them in a non husked character will infect said character with a strong dose of the husk infection.
They can also be deconstructed into two husk eggs.
Unstable Husk Stinger
A strong stinger. Can be crafted by combining a husk stinger and unstable husk eggs in the fabricator.
Husk Mutant Embryo
An item used for crafting. Can be obtained by killing and looting mutant husk cocoons.
An item used for crafting. Can be obtained by looting wrecks and can also be bought from research outposts.
Symbiotic Calyx Injector
Used to inject a dose of symbiotic husk infection in humans. Can be crafted by combining a calyx injector, a husk mutant embryo and a blood pack in the fabricator.
The first dose of it gives the following attributes to its host:
- Health regeneration on critical condition
The second dose of it gives the following attributes to its host, on top of the previous ones:
- Husk infection affinity (the husk infection will never cause your death)
- Pressure Immunity
- Damaged by calyxanide
Booster Calyx Injector
Used to inject a dose of booster husk infection in characters. Can be crafted by combining a calyx injector, unstable husk eggs and stabilozine in the fabricator.
This item can be used to quickly heal wounded humans, however it has a completely different effect on monsters.
It can be used on the following creatures with the following effects:
- Hatchling crawler -> Grows into crawler
- Crawler -> Grows into swarm crawler
- Swarm crawler -> Lays a crawler egg
- Hatchling mudraptor -> Grows into unarmored mudraptor
- Unarmored mudraptor -> Grows into mudraptor
- Mudraptor -> Lays a mudraptor egg
- Hatchling tiger thresher -> Grows into tiger thresher
- Tiger thresher -> Grows into bone thresher
- Bone thresher -> Lays a thresher egg
These attributes do not come without risk, as there is a small chance that the character afflicted with this special husk infection will contract the normal husk infection.
The mod adds a lot of transformations. It might be worth experimenting with these transformations as to find a way to use them to your advantage.
Characters that can be affected and transformed into husks by the husk infection
- Tiger threshers
- Bone threshers
- Golden hammerheads

- Human husk -> Becomes old human husk after a long time passes
- Human husk wearing a diving suit -> Becomes husk diver immediately
- Husk diver -> Becomes rusted husk diver after a long time passes while submerged in water
- Rusted husk diver -> Becomes armored mutant husk after a long time passes (this transformation is random chance based, but it can be forced by injecting the husk diver with radiotoxin)
- Mutant husked human -> Becomes mutant husked human torso if dismembered
- Mutant husked human torso -> Becomes mutant husked human head if dismembered
- Human -> Becomes human shambler if successfully attacked by mutant husked human head
