How to destroy a Wooden Door in Rust (6 Easy Ways)

How to destroy a Wooden Door in Rust (6 Easy Ways)

If you have ever played Rust, you will know how scary it is when there is a massive group near your base. You might join the server the next day, and your base was raided and everything you worked for was stolen from you. You might be wondering, how hard is it to destroy a Wooden Door?

It is extremely easy to destroy Wooden Doors. You can destroy them with pretty much anything, but the easiest stuff to use would be a Metal Hatchet, Incendiary Rounds, a Salvaged Sword, a Flame Thrower, Satchel Charges, or destroying the Foundation underneath it.

Anything can be used to destroy Wooden Doors, but these ways are by far the cheapest in the game. Some of them will take a while to do, but it can be done with enough patience. If you want to know more about each of the ways, make sure to read the rest of the article.

Are Wooden Doors good defense?

Wooden Doors are a good starting place for the defense of your base. We would say that it is a placeholder for better defenses later on. It is extremely easy to get through, so you will probably want to make an airlock and barricade that section up as much as you can. Pretty much anyone can get through, even with enough rocks, so always be prepared for anything.

Technically, Wooden Doors are not really the best defense, seeing that you can just burn through it with anything. You are going to want to get Metal Doors as fast as possible so the only people that can get into your base are the ones with all the explosives saved up. You won’t have much to offer them so they most likely won’t raid you unless you make them mad.

How to destroy Wooden Doors

There are a ton of ways to destroy Wooden Doors, but we are going to focus on the easiest ways for this article. You could waist a C4 on a wooden door, but the loot inside probably won’t compensate for the materials you used to get inside unless the person does a ton of material hunting and you want everything they have.

If you are getting raided by someone and you have a Wooden Door, make sure you have some friends playing with you, or else it might be over for you and your base. Once they get inside, they will destroy your beds and sleeping bags, and you won’t be able to respawn. Upgrading to Metal Doors will benefit you soo much and it is not that expensive.

Here are the 6 easiest ways to destroy a Wooden Door:

1. Metal Hatchet

Hatchet icon

A Hatchet, useful for chopping trees and dismembering corpses.

How to get: Found in Wooden Crates inside Monuments and near the Roads

  • 100x Wood
  • 75x Metal Fragments

This is probably one of the longest ways to destroy a Wooden Door because it takes a long time to chop it open. It is one of the cheapest things to make because you only need some wood and metal fragments. If you don’t have a Workbench Level 2, then you might get lucky and find one in a crate somewhere.

Always check a crate if you see one because it could have something extremely rare inside and you might just overlook it. If you have a friend, ask for him to make you one and then turn it into a blueprint so you can craft more later.

2. Incendiary Rounds

Incendiary Pistol Bullet icon

Slower moving ammunition that deals fire damage. There’s a small chance it will start a fire.

How to get: Found in Wooden Crates inside Monuments and near the Roads

  • 10x Metal Fragments
  • 10x Gunpowder
  • 5x Sulfur
  • 1x Low Grade Fuel

These obviously aren’t super easy to get, but it is definitely one of the easiest ways to destroy Wooden Doors. They are relatively cheap to make as long as you have a steady supply of Sulfur Ore. That is the main thing you need for this Ammo and it does take a long time to get it into the materials you need. Just make sure you use every piece you have and not waste it.

3. Salvaged Sword

Salvaged Sword icon

A powerful melee weapon made from a filed-down wrench. Great durability, good damage.

How to get: Found in Wooden Crates inside Monuments and near the Roads

  • 15x Metal Fragments
  • 1x Metal Blade

These tools are actually easier to find than the Metal Hatchets. The only downside to them is that they take longer to destroy the Wooden Doors than the Hatchets do. You can use it for destroying doors, but it is probably better suited for use as a weapon. If you do get one, make sure to blueprint it so you can make more later.

4. Flamethrower

Flame Thrower icon

A Flamethrower. Uses low grade fuel as ammunition.

How to get: Found in High Tier Crates inside Large Monuments

  • 15x High Quality Metal
  • 6x Metal Pipes
  • 100x Low Grade Fuel
  • 2x Empty Propane Tanks

Wooden doors are susceptible to fire, especially when exposed to a Rust flamethrower. The intense heat from the flames can quickly ignite the door, causing it to burn and eventually collapse. Flamethrowers are an effective way to breach wooden doors, as they can quickly create a large amount of heat that will cause the door to catch on fire.

5. Satchel Charges

Satchel Charge

How to get: Found in Supply Drops and inside Small Monuments

  • 1x Rope
  • 1x Small Stash
  • 4x Beancan Grenades

Satchel charges are an excellent way to destroy wooden doors. Simply place the charge on the door, and run away. Two blasts will take out the door, and likely anything else in its way. Be sure to use caution when using these charges, as they can be dangerous. Make sure you have a clear path to run away in case of an accident.

6. Destroy the foundation

Wooden Foundation

One of the ways to do this is by destroying the foundation under a door in Rust. This will allow players to access whatever is behind the door. Players can use different methods to destroy the foundation, such as using a pickaxe or explosives. It is important for players to be aware of the consequences of destroying the foundation, as it can lead to the collapse of the building.
