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.

Rust Guide to Building a House

No one can live without a place to call home. It is the first basic building of survivor in Rust’s horrible island. A house can be a base operation where the residents can store their supply.
Shelter is the first building for aversion.

Before crafting your shelter, builder needs to collect enough materials to build one as mentioned by this rust starter guide. It requires 50 woods for shelter and additional 30 for door. Keep in mind that there is no need to cut down the tree. It will deplete a lot of energy. Looking for a pile of woods on the ground is a smarter idea. Stone hatchet is the best tool to gather wood.

Once the settler is ready to build, a new resident should think about a place where to build the shelter. Location is very important to consider. Staying in shelter is not permanently safe, It just keeps resident from harm for a while. If there are many intruders trying to destroy the shelter, the durability won’t last long. A recommended spot is a ground between mountains. Also, living next to friendly humans is a good choice. However, you really need to be sure that he is a true friend and will not attack you eventually.

When placing the wood, keep a space for expansion next time. The building will not be wasted. Place a wood pillar at the corner, then place a wall frame and door frame later. Do not place pillar in the center of the house.

In case the builder has a metal fragment, making a metal door will increase the durability of the shelter. Metal door requires 200 metal fragments. Do not for get to build a furnace as it is a first tool for metal crafting. Metal door will greatly protect the residents inside the building. Only explosive charge and grenade can destroy it. Unlike wooden door, it can resist a melee attack using a hatchet for little while. Nevertheless, the door is an important component to prevent incoming threats from surroundings.
