A large shipping vessel, the Aquatipper is used to transport vehicles, equipment, and personnel over large bodies of water.
In-game description

The BMS - Aquatipper (also known as a Barge) is a large, faction-neutral logistical Naval Vehicle designed to be an all-purpose logistics vehicle, capable of moving cargo, equipment, and personnel to various locations.

General Info


The BMS - Aquatipper holds six passengers, and houses a crew of one soldier:

  • Driver
    • Controls the movement of the vehicle, and can see the remaining fuel in the vehicle
    • Can use the sound horn - press LMB
    • Able to deploy/undeploy the vehicle - press F
    • Can open/close Bridges - press E
  • Passenger(s)
    • Up to 6 soldiers can be on the Barge deck and move around
    • Able to access the vehicle's inventory
    • Can use thrown weapons and firearms that don't require a stable position when the ramp is undeployed, and all weapons otherwise.


The BMS - Aquatipper is not equipped with a main armament.


It has 15 inventory slots that can hold any item.

Items can be dropped on the deck and the ship can still move with dropped items on its deck.


The BMS - Aquatipper can be interacted in a few ways:

  • Its ramp can only be lowered at coastal beaches, Shipyard (except if destroyed), Navy Pier, Dry Dock, docks, and Seaport docks)
  • Open/Close Drawbridge (when next to it): E
  • One small or large Shippable can be placed on the Barge
    • Must be loaded/offloaded with a Crane - the player must have access to the Barge
    • The shippable on the barge can't be interacted with at all: it's visible on the deck but is not really there, shooting it only damages the barge.
  • Vehicles can also be parked on the Barge.
    • It can carry all vehicle types except those that are too long (Transport Bus, Flatbed Truck, Super Tanks).
    • Only one vehicle can be carried at a time except for smaller vehicles like Motorcycles, Bicycles, and LUVs.
    • When the ramp is up, the vehicles on the barge cannot be entered and cannot use their weapons or special ability (e.g. Crane), but their inventory can still be accessed.

Storage & Transport

The BMS - Aquatipper can be stored in a Seaport.

It cannot be packaged or transported by another vehicle. As such, it must be driven to its destination, regardless of where it is.


It can carry up to 6 players, any more and the barge won't be able to move. It also won't move if one of the player is overencumbered. Players on the barge cannot fire heavy weapons (Machine Guns, Mortars, Anti-Tank Rifles, RPGs, etc...) unless the ramp is lowered.

The barge is a versatile vehicle. It can be used:

  • with a Resource Container to transport raw resources from a Resource Field or Resource Mine to a Refinery, as long as both are close to a beach, seaport, or shipyard.
  • with a Shipping Container or Shippable Crate and 15 crates in its inventory to deliver supplies to a Seaport.
  • with a Material Pallet, or Emplacement and 15 crates in its inventory to deliver supplies directly to the front as long as there's a place to dock and a crane at the destination.
  • to ambush enemy logistics (freighters, barges) deep in the enemy's backline rivers, using infantry on the deck armed with Anti-Tank Sticky Bombs.
  • to transport a recon or offensive vehicle to a beach deep in the enemy's backline to destroy and harass ground logistics. One barge can carry two Light Utility Vehicles for example.
  • to assault an enemy position on the coast. The barge is fairly resistant and although the infantry on deck can't use heavy weapons they can still throw all types of grenades and fire small arms.
  • to hunt enemy gunboats, using infantry with Sticky Bombs.


  • Barges will disappear after 72 hours if no one enters the Driver's seat
    • Entering it will reset the timer
  • The Barge was added in the Update 0.4 (also known as the 'Amphibious Warfare' Update)
    • Originally, it did not possess a horn, however this was later added in Update 0.48
