    Hey all, been playing rust and ive noticed that majority of chat in game are people asking questions. this includes myself sometimes.
    so im starting a Ingame FAQ's thread that i will update. ill post questions to get it started but then ill take answers and questions from the replies. dont know something? ask here and when someone answers it i will add it to the list so its easy to find for future readers.

    _________________________________________

    BASICS:

    Q: How many hits does an axe take to break a wooden door with full health?
    A: 112 hits

    Q: How many hits does a pickaxe take to break a wooden door with full health?
    A: 56 hits

    Q: Do bluebrints you've learned stay with you when you die?
    A: Yes, they last forever

    Q: Can you break this this and that?!
    A: With melee you can break doors,boxes,barricades, ramps, stairs, sleeping bags, storage bags, fires, wood shelters (the craftable one)
    With C4/nades you can break walls,doorways,metaldoors, and everything above

    Q: Difference between a pickaxe and a hatchet?
    A: Pickaxe gathers resources much faster with the exception of harvesting animals and does 2x damage with slightly more range (slower hits)

    Q: Can you destroy other peoples sleepingbags?
    A: Yes. in under 20 hits

    Q: what Happens when you place multiple sleepingbags in the world?
    A: You will spawn at the last sleeping bag you placed. old one is NOT removed

    Q: How many F1 Nades does it take to destroy a metal door?
    A. Metal doors take 11 grenades to destroy.

    Q: How many explosive charges does it take to destroy a metal door
    A: 3 Total for fresh doors. Generally only need 2 because of decay

    Q: How does decay work?!
    A: decay destroys structures and doors over a time span of around 4 days (little faster for doors) starting from the top of your house down.

    Q: how do you repair stuff?
    A: right click the decayed object with the required resource (wood, metal, leather, cloth, etc)

    Q: I SAW AN AIRPLANE!!!!!
    A: the airplane is a world event in which occures once every ingame day (so once an hour). It drops 1-3 crates in which can contain anything from 100's of ammo to c4 to crafting materials to medkits.


    feel free to ask more questions and ill update. these are the basics that i can think of on the spot, someone grave dug this thread and since there are about 600 new players i thought i'd update it since it might be useful again.

    Updated. Guys make sure to leave questions for others to answer :) think of this thread as the one place you wont be a noobfagwhoreslut for asking questions.

    also if cussing is against the rules then noobfagwhoreslut is my last name... in which case it will be a hate crime to ban me simply because of my foreign last name.

    will update again in morning.

    This isn't a question but i had it answered recently:

    1. If someone blocks your entrance with a wooden shelter, you can use a pickaxe to destroy it. (# of hits unknown)

    2. Metal doors take 11 grenades to destroy. (I could be wrong. A friend on TS made a load in his base and kept chucking them until destroyed)

    *Edit
    I will ask:
    What can you destroy? i was surprised you could destroy wooden shelters, can we pickax anything else?

    starting from the top of your house down.
    Pretty sure if it is exposed to the outside it decays quicker than if it is enclosed.

    It has a cooldown. You'll have to wait a few minutes for the small thing at the bottom of the doorway to go disappear.

    Thanks, but If I destroy them I don't get them back, or? I have to craft them again, right?

    Thanks, man.

    I think it also takes down 10 hunger, like the hatchet, per swing.


    Also, starving will cause you to swing slower and run slower, if that should be added in.

    Ok, I've looked around and didn't find the answer I was looking for. Hopefully someone here can answer. I see stuff about walls, and metal doors but I want to know... How many explosive charges does it take to break a METAL wall? I put 5 on one and it didn't break. Also, what is used to heal metal walls/doorways/stuff? I've tried metal fragments, low quality metal, even wood. You just equip the material to your quick bar and look at the wall pressing that number right?

    I've tried asking in game but no one seems to know for sure about this stuff.

    Uhhh what were you hitting exactly? Myself and 2 clan mates, ripped down a wooden shack in a couple minutes while using Metal Hatchets. Pick Axes work just fine as well.

    hello,
    has there been any published information on the decay time of wooden structures (i.e. windows, walls, doors, roofing, etc) as well as the metal equivalents?
    Thx!

    Wooden shacks look like sheds and are placed down all at once. You guys must have been hitting a wooden building built with pillars and walls. Which isn't able to be destroyed with anything other than c4.

    Also I'm not sure that's how decay works. As long as I go in and out of my building (real world) daily, my building takes on no decay. I don't have to heal it.

    We've been actively using and expanding our base and we've had to repair a few of the upper sections as they started to decay.

    The FAQ mentions right clicking to repair, but I had to have wood in my hot bar and press the number key whilst looking at it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's pretty glitchy.
