The Water Barrel is a large, deployable storage container for water. Using a portable water container like a Water Bucket or a Water Jug, you can take water and transfer it into the barrel. Unlike smaller portable water containers, the Water Barrel can hold massive amounts of water, as much as 20,000 mL. You can drink directly from the Water Barrel as well as put in/take water from it. Water Barrels differ from Water Catchers in that they must be filled manually, and can be placed indoors.

Crafting

The Water Barrel can be crafted with:

Mechanics

To interact with the Water Barrel aim at its spigot and either press the "Use" key to bring up the inventory screen or hold it down to access the Context Menu Wheel.

The Menu Wheel allows one to take a sip (restoring 30 Hydration points and consuming 30 mL worth of water) from the barrel or open its inventory.

Whilst accessing the barrel's inventory, you can select a water container (Left Click) to bring up the Filling Menu, allowing you to transfer water in 100 mL increments from the container to the barrel, or vice versa.

To save time while filling the Water Barrel up, it is possible to splash the contents of a Water Bucket (Left Click to "fire" it) in the approximate vicinity of the barrel. The barrel will then absorb the splashed water, provided the range requirements have been met. If there are several Water Barrels close to where the water has been splashed, the total amount of water absorbed will be equally divided amongst the barrels.

Trivia

  • It is possible to deploy the Water Barrel underwater, regardless of the water depth as long as the area is relatively flat.
  • Water Barrels can be useful for small bases during a siege, but should be considered a luxury instead of a priority.
