Obtaining and Using Non-Lethal Weapons in Dave the Diver
Unlocking Tranquilizer Hush Dart:
Find new weapon models, including the Tranquilizer (Hush Dart), in underwater chests during your dives.
Once you acquire a weapon, you can use it immediately or return to the boat to unlock a blueprint fragment for crafting.
Craft the Hush Dart by opening the Weapon Shop app on the boat and using the required materials: Red Starfish x2, Orange Starfish x2, Copper Ore x3 (obtained by breaking underwater deposits with melee weapons), and Gold x50.
Set the Hush Dart as your active weapon by interacting with the Diver Box on the boat and placing it in the active slot.
Use the Hush Dart to shoot fish underwater. Wait for the fish to fall asleep (indicated by three dots above it) and then approach it and hold SPACE to collect a living specimen.
Note that the tranquilizer also works on predators, but you must avoid their attacks until the sleeping dart takes effect.
Unlocking Tranquilizer Harpoon Tip:
The Tranquilizer Harpoon Tip functions similarly to the Hush Dart, with an additional chance to instantly put fish to sleep.
Find Tranquilizer Harpoon upgrades in random underwater locations, typically inside chests. You can have one tip set as active at a time.
Obtaining Small Net Gun:
The Small Net Gun is the first weapon in the net gun category. You can use it immediately and return to the boat to complete the blueprint for crafting.
Craft the Small Net Gun in the Weapon Shop app using Rope x4, Scrap Iron x2 (found at the bottom), and Gold x100.
Set the Small Net Gun as your active weapon by placing it in the active slot within the Diver Box on the boat.
Use the Net Gun to aim at schools of fish. Once caught, swim up to the net and hold SPACE to obtain all the fish alive.
Note that the Small Net Gun has limitations: you cannot catch large specimens like sharks, and the net can hold a maximum of 7 fish at a time. As you progress in the campaign, you will acquire better nets with new opportunities.
Benefits of Catching Live Fish:
Using non-lethal weapons, such as the Hush Dart or Net Gun, increases the chance of catching higher quality fish, allowing you to prepare better dishes in the sushi bar.
The quality of the fish you catch is displayed in the bottom left corner of the screen. Capturing live and rare species of fish can double your profit.
It is recommended to use all your sleep darts or nets before ending the dive and returning to the boat for maximum effectiveness.
Tranquilizer and Net Gun can also be useful during the Gourmet Vincent’s Challenge quest, obtained from Bancho in the sushi bar, which involves catching a live White Spotted Jellyfish.
