To be able to craft items and upgrades in Rust, you must first have a workbench. If you don't have one, you must first purchase Workbench level 1 to use it. However, if you already own this level, you can skip this step and continue crafting with it. After completing Workbench level 1, you can upgrade it by purchasing Rust Console Edition blueprints.
Crafting early game gear
The tier 1 Work Bench is an excellent starting point to begin crafting early game gear. This bench is located at Scientist Outpost and Bandit Camp monuments. You can use materials from these locations to craft various weapons and equipment. You can also find the necessary materials by harvesting items that are available in the environment. The materials are plentiful, and you can upgrade them to make them more effective against enemies.
While you will need a few resources and recipes to begin crafting, you can also make additional items besides the ones in the default crafting menu. These can be obtained from supply drops or radtowns. You can also craft items by utilizing a Research Kit. You must place a Research Kit on an item in your inventory and next to the Workbench. Some items can only be researched if they are found in supply drops, so be sure to get a research kit before you start crafting.
First, you must find some wood and leather scraps. If you want to make leather items, you need to kill deer. After you do that, you will get the adze. Once you have obtained 50 scrap, you will be able to make a leather chopping block. You will also need to make an iron forge. Once you've crafted a forge, you'll unlock the rust workbench level 1 as well.
You can also craft weapons and armor at the rust workbench level one by researching them. This option does not allow you to skip a tech tree, but allows you to craft an item without spending any additional scrap. While you're leveling up your workbench, you will also gain experience and learn a new branch every so often. If you have the time, you can start crafting the gear you need to survive in the world.
The workbench is an important early game crafting station. Crafting items at this level will unlock more advanced weapons and armor. You'll be able to improve the items with this workbench at a very small resource cost. You can even upgrade your gear with the help of a glowing hammer icon. Once you've upgraded your gear, you can repair it using the hammer on the workbench. This will restore durability. Sadly, the hammer will only repair items that are built in the workbench.
In Rust, obtaining the blueprints required to craft your first workbench costs 75 scrap, 300 scrap, and over 1000 metal shards. Fortunately, the game offers two different methods for obtaining blueprints. One is to use the research table, which allows players to investigate the related planes and exchange scrap metal for resources. The other method is to purchase blueprints directly from the game.
The first method of researching blueprints for the Rust workbench requires obtaining a research table, which can be found all over the world map. Some are located in monuments, but others are found inside decaying buildings. Most Level 1 workbenches can be found in aircraft hangar-style buildings. To build a research table, you will need 200 Metal Fragment and 75 Scrap.
Once you have the blueprint, you can use it to craft items. To do this, you can either move it into your inventory or trade it with another player. Alternatively, you can also sell it to vending machines. If you find the blueprint you want to craft, you can memorize it so it will always be in your inventory. However, you must be on the same game server when crafting blueprints.
Once you have your workbench level 1, you can research blueprints in the Workbench by pressing the "Open Tech-Tree" button. This opens a branched tech tree. At this point, you can only research the first items in the Tech-Tree, but the rest can be researched in the Workbench level 2 and higher. However, you must remember to unlock all the blueprints first before building your workbench.
You can also obtain the research table by searching for a rusted wreck or building. You can also find these blueprints in some monuments around the world. If you have the resources to do this, you can also use other survivors' research tables. However, the most efficient method is to use a Level 1 workbench and scrap metal. This way, you can earn more Scrap with your workbench and avoid using up all the resources in a single go.
Upgrading a workbench
Upgrading a rust workbech is simple. To do this, go to the main menu and select Equipment > Workbenches. Upgrade workbenches are found before locked items. If you don't have any locked items, you can upgrade a workbench at this time. Once upgraded, you don't need to duplicate it. Here are eight basic things to consider when upgrading your workspace.
A crafting station is the easiest way to upgrade a rust workbench. It's easy to craft this item, and you can use it to craft various items. To create a chopping block, simply place a stump anywhere near the workbench. Lastly, you'll need flint, a resource found near water. If you don't have any of these materials, you can kill a Deer to get flint.
Luckily, there's a way to repair a Level 1 Rust workbench. You'll need a few resources, such as High-Quality Metal and Scrap, to make this repair. Fortunately, you don't have to purchase blueprints for this item. Unlike other crafting materials, workbenches can be crafted from anywhere. In addition, you can place them anywhere you want.
In Rust, the new tech tree allows you to craft any item in the game. Prior to this change, you would have to use the Research Table or learn the item to craft it. This new feature makes crafting more accessible and makes scrap earning strategies more viable, especially for T3 blueprints. With these tools, you can even upgrade your workbench's level by a single item. And once you upgrade it, you can sell it to someone else in your town.
Repairing a workbench
A Rust workbench is an item that can be used to craft different things. They only have a limited shelf life, but you can extend their lifespan by performing workbench repairs. This will give you more time to craft useful items. There are three ways to repair a Rust workbench, but all three methods have the same result. If you're wondering which method works best for you, read on to find out!
The first way to repair a rust workbench is to research blueprints using scrap from the level 1 workbench. Researching the rust tech tree is easy if you have enough scrap, but it's a lot more time-consuming than it sounds. Fortunately, the tech tree for Rust is organized into three parts, each of which has a different focus. This way, you'll be able to focus your efforts on finding the best blueprints without wasting precious resources.
Once you've gathered enough rust-prone scrap, you can start removing the rust. Apply a rust-removal compound to the affected area. Wait for an hour, then apply water. Repeat the process if necessary. Make sure to use safety goggles and protective gloves while working. The rust-resistant material will make your workbench last for a very long time.
Another option to make use of a repair bench is to gather the items you need to repair. These items can be placed near a monument or on a stairway. When you're not using a repair bench, you can easily store it away when you're not in need of it. You should also know the blueprint of the item you're trying to repair. This will help you make the bench use less space and not take damage while it's being used.
