The Loud Horn is one of the only ship upgrades that can be bought from the Store through the Terminal on the ship in Lethal Company. It looks like a long pole where there are diagonal yellow and black stripes running along with a cord hanging from the side of it. The pole is attached to the top of the ship. When the cord attached to the pole is pulled, it makes a loud ship horn-like noise that goes on for however long you keep holding the cord down. The horn can be heard anywhere on the moon you’re on and yes, that means it can be heard inside the facility as well.

The horn emitted is very loud and it comes straight from the front of the ship, which is opposite the ship’s entrance. This makes it a pretty good item to alert teammates or lure monsters, specifically the Eyeless Dogs to the ship when the players need to get in. Keep on reading to learn how to get it and how to use it properly.

How to get the Loud Horn in Lethal Company

As mentioned, the horn is a ship upgrade type of item that can be bought from the Store through the Terminal in the players' Ship. It costs only 100 Credits and can be bought by any player in a team of employees. Now, without further delay, here is how you can get the Loud Horn through the Store in the Terminal in Lethal Company:

  • Step 1: First, you will have to go to the Terminal on your ship and access it by pressing “E” on your keyboard.
  • Step 2: Once you are in the Terminal, you need to click on the console area and type in “Help” and hit “Enter” on your keyboard. This will take you to the main screen of the Terminal.
  • Step 3: Once you get to the main screen on the Terminal, you will see that the second option shown is the store. Type in “Store” and hit “Enter” on your keyboard, which will take you to the Store’s main screen.
  • Step 4: On the Store’s main screen you will see a list of all the items that the Company provides consisting of equipment and ship upgrades, which includes the horn. To buy the item, all you need to do is type in “Loud Horn” or just “loud” on the console and hit “Enter” on your keyboard.
  • Step 5: After you hit “Enter”, you will be taken to another screen that will ask you to confirm your purchase. To do that, type in “Confirm” or just “con” and hit “Enter” on your keyboard.

By following these 5 easy steps, you can buy the Loud Horn quite easily. After you’re done confirming your purchase, you don’t have to wait for it to arrive via a transport rocket to the moon you’re on because this is delivered differently. As soon as you hit Confirm on the Terminal’s console, the teleporter will show up inside the ship which you can then relocate to wherever you want. However, it is advisable to place the horn on the desk area right next to the Ship’s monitor for quick access when you need to alert your teammates at once.

How to use the Loud Horn properly in Lethal Company

Using the Loud Horn does not have a learning curve to it, because all you have to do is pull a cord, quite easy in our opinion. You just need to press the “E” button on your keyboard or the interact button in your key binding to use the horn. However, knowing how to use the horn properly is another case. Here are the two different ways that you can use the horn in Lethal Company:

Callouts or Signals

The first way you can use the Loud Horn is by setting up certain callouts and signals with all the members of your crew before they go inside the facility. They can help the ship operator or ship guy tell the teammates what time it is, alert them about monsters nearby and even help them escape in time from the likes of Forest Keepers. Some examples of callouts that you can use are given as follows:

  • 1 Short Pull of the horn: Signify that 1 hour has passed.
  • 2 Short Pulls of the horn: Signify that there are monsters near the ship.
  • 1 Long Pull of the horn: Signify that there are Eyeless Dogs nearby.

Luring monsters

The second way you can use the Loud Horn is by luring monsters to the front of the ship. The only monster that this truly works on is the Eyeless Dogs as they are attracted to noise. When you are spectating your teammates and see them nearing the ship, use the horn and keep holding it down to lure the dogs to the front of the ship, which is opposite to the ship’s entrance. Keep doing it until they make it inside the ship and close the door. It is very effective and allows everyone to leave the planet unscathed.


Needless to say, it is not absolutely necessary that you buy the Loud Horn from the Store through the Terminal. It is one of those items in the game that aids a player’s chances of survival and makes it slightly easier, but it is not valuable to buy until and unless you have the extra Credits for it. It is highly advisable to not buy them during your early scrap runs because there are a lot of other ways for combatting monsters. However, it is a useful item based on the situation, because it can help you escape the deadly Eyeless Dogs that otherwise give the players a tough time when trying to get to the ship.

Hence, read up on all the information given above about the Loud Horn and buy it only when you possess the spare cash for it.
