The Diving Helmet is an armor piece for the helmet slot. It has a 2*1/50 (2%) chance of being dropped by Sharks and Orcas. When equipped, it causes the breath meter to deplete much slower and slows the rate at which drowning damage is taken.

  • Like all diving equipment, the Diving Helmet prolongs the underwater breath to 1 minute and 33.33 seconds or, while holding the Breathing Reed, to 3 minutes and 6.67 seconds. In addition, the rate at which health is lost while drowning is reduced to 1/4 or 1/8, respectively. While it is possible to equip multiple pieces of diving equipment, doing so does not cause them to stack.
  • Sharks spawned from the Shark Statue may drop the Diving Helmet.

Trivia[]

  • The Diving Helmet is the only piece of armor that can be used to craft something other than a piece of armor (as the Empty Buckets need to be filled in order to be used to craft Sinks).

History[]

  • Desktop 1.1.1: Fixed bug where it would not extend underwater breathing.
