What is the Stick Blade, and what is it used for?
In Green Hell, players often find themselves in dangerous situations with few resources. Perhaps the Stick Blade will suffice if you need a blade right now. Formed from a sharpened rock pinched between two twigs, this flimsy tool shows desperation, but it’s better than nothing.
This guide will walk you through how to craft a Stick Blade in Green Hell and offer tips on how it can be used.
How to craft a Stick Blade in Green Hell
The only real benefit these blades offer is the simplicity of their construction and a little extra reach. All you need to craft your own Stick Blade are these components:
- 2 Small Sticks
- 1 Rope
- 1 Stone
Small Sticks can be found on the ground around the rainforest, collected by cutting down trees or harvested from Sticks. Rope can be gathered by collecting Liana vines hanging from large trees. Stones can be collected from river beds, caves, and boulders or harvested from Big Stones.
Once you’ve collected the proper components, craft the Stick Blade by:
- Opening the radial menu (by holding the
- Select crafting from the options
- Drag the small sticks, rope, and stone to the crafting rock from the backpack
- Press the craft button above the crafting rock
Note: The crafting menu can also be opened from the inventory sidebar or by holding the alt-select button (default
RMB) over one of the ingredients and pressing craft.
How to equip the Stick Blade
The Stick Blade can be found in the tools tab of the inventory and occupies one of the four standard tool slots (numbered 1-4) or the additional unmarked knife slot at the far right. It can be equipped at any time by pressing the number key corresponding to this tool’s slot.
Note that tools in the knife slot cannot be equipped but can still be used for activities like skinning animals.
Tips and tricks for using the Stick Blade
The Stick Blade is a heavier, weaker version of the Stone Blade and should be treated as such. The only real benefit this tool offers over the stone blade is a little bit of additional reach.
These weapons are the blade family’s weakest and lowest tier member and are only useful as short-term, disposable knives.
We strongly discourage players from using these tools in combat. If you are forced into a confrontation with only a Stick Blade, we can only suggest focusing on dodging and fleeing as soon as possible.
If you insist on fighting with Stick Blades, the best strategy is to craft several of these tools and use them as throwing weapons in Green Hell. If you can keep yourself clear of enemy attacks, you may be able to take them down by repeatedly throwing blades at them.
Waruha warriors often carry these weapons into combat, allowing players to collect them from their bodies after slaying them. Waruha hunters may carry these knives as backup weapons.
For whatever reason, the crafting recipe for these tools does not appear in the notebook.
Like other tools in its category, Stick Blades can be used to chop down trees and split wood, if necessary.
Final thoughts on the Stick Blade
As relatively useless as this tool is, sometimes you must use what is available. If all you have are some small sticks and a rock, Creepy Jar felt you should be able to use that to make a knife, and we can’t say we disagree.
