The Great Hammerhead fights tooth and nail as he thrashes and bashes prey to a crimson pulp. Modest jaws are made up for by pinning prey behind the cephalofoil and crushing them to smithereens. Crushing is a brand-new mechanic unique to the Hammerhead, direct impacts into any solid object will cause prey in his jaws to take damage proportional to the speed and angle of the hit. The Hammerhead is a force to be reckoned with and may just put the final nail in your coffin.
Every shark in Depth has been given a new and unique active ability. Unlike evolutions, which are entirely 'passive', these abilities are player activated (E by default), so you can use them whenever you feel the time is right! Shark abilities are available and equipped at the start of every game. Along with a base level, Shark Abilities can be upgraded a further two times (with the same Evolution Points you know and love) giving added effects and bonuses. Without further ado, let's dive into the details!
El Magdalena was a Spanish War Galleon which met its demise after crossing paths with an English Man-Of-War off the coast of Cuba in 1643. Immense chunks strewn across a bouldered sea floor are decorated with loose cannons, cracked masts, and booty galore. S.T.E.V.E. and the divers are geared up to descend to the depths of this wreck in hopes of discovering the lost treasures of Diego Sanchez that lay within.
Introducing the LJ-10 Volleyjet - Lock, stock, and 10 barrels
Built from experimental technology, the LJ-10 Volleyjet simultaneously fires a ring of ten, 9.4mm Lancejets which spread as they travel. While inaccurate at great ranges, the LJ-10's steel tipped Lancejets will tear through any shark in close-quarters combat.
Introducing the Medkit - Enough drugs to knock out a whale
Who knows where Captain Stubbs dredged this stuff up but boy does it work. Got a headache? Use the Medkit. Bleeding a bit? Use the Medkit. Get your limbs mangled by a ravaging shark but are somehow still alive? Use the Medkit. It's a wonder why they didn't bring this down sooner considering how effective it is!
Introducing the Welder - Turn up the heat
Putting the hype in hyperbaric, this handy welding torch does it all from performing repairs on S.T.E.V.E. to cutting enraged sharks off your limbs. Stubbs will appreciate you keeping our favorite robot in such great shape! Be sure to give it a shot errrr... a weld!
With a brand new visual style, Depth's in-game menus have been expanded and improved in what they do. Weapons have been broken down into categories and rearranged, allowing us to release an advanced weapon upgrade system. Ammo upgrades have been distributed among every weapon where appropriate, allowing you to tag and tranquilize like never before. For example: With the new upgrade system you could add tagging rounds to a P11, or tranquilizing rounds to your SPP-1! Along with these changes, you'll find that the in-game HUD and scoreboards have been updated to reflect the new visual style.

From the wreck of an old Spanish Galleon, El Magdalena, comes the Legendary Hammerhead! This war-torn Great Hammerhead was bruised, battered, skewered, and splintered in the midst of a naval battle over 300 years ago. This legendary beast hasn't been seen in hundreds of years, but some claim he never stopped swimming.
Modeled after stolen French Corsair weaponry discovered in the wreck of an old Spanish Galleon, El Magdalena. The Corsair weapon skins shimmer and shine with their gold plating and faux ivory finish.
