How to Upgrade the Walls of Your Base in Rust


Many hostile humans like to attack the base. As a defender, what you really need are reliable weapons and durable stronghold. A good weapon can shut down enemy quickly, but a strong wall will make the intruders consume time for wall breaching, eventually making them a suitable bullseye shot for a rifle.

Building a house good location can save a survivor from harm, however, there is no safe place in Rust. Usually, a well-armed raider will carry an explosive charge and automatic rifle. In this case, a wooden building will be blown up in the blink of an eye. This post will teach a survivor in this island to make his basement hard to be seized.

Woods are easy to be harvested. This is the reason why most buildings are made of wood. It also does not require any blueprint to build. A wood shelter is enough for living as a survivor. However, it is just a pile of wood for bandits with powerful explosives. In case the base owner wants more security, then take all the wood out. A strong fortress must be made of metal only. All its parts: door walls, windows, and roof. Everything is metal.


To get metal parts, crafter needs to find a metal ore from stone resources. A furnace is needed to melt down ores in to metal fragment. Now, it is the time to make the building part. Before crafting, check all requirements carefully, as some requires a workbench and some needs a blue print.

When the metal fortress is finished, an owner should consider to add extra add-ons such as a spike wall. An intruder will face more difficulty to breach the wall. Nevertheless, do not make the base look like a jail. It should have some space for getting in and out in case of being flanked. Be careful about the escape route, make sure it will not become a weak point that will let bandits exploit it. Last but not the least, get a good weapon and high quality armor to defend the base.

Don’t forget to keep resources in a storage box. A box should be located in a safe place along with a bed or sleeping bag. The character will respawn here it when die.
