The Armored Door is the most secure doorway component in RUST.
With 1000 hit points, the door will take 2 Timed Explosive Charges, 1 Satchel Charge, and roughly 13 Explosive ammo to break down, exceeding the stone wall in terms of security. Alternatively, you may also use 5 Rockets.
Unlike other doors, the armored door has a small hatch that players can open and close with access to the lock.
The hatch opens enough to provide limited vision and even more limited capacity to fire weapons through.
Depending on the size and scope of your base, it may not be a good idea to place an armored door as your front door. Doing this may advertise to other players that you have the resources to produce armored doors and, therefore, may have more inside.
Considering the High-Quality Metal upkeep cost of armored doors, limiting the amount of them installed in your base is a good idea.
If you intend to use the armored doors, save them for your innermost sanctum, protecting primary loot or Tool Cupboard rooms.
You can purchase many skins that might obscure the fact that a door is armored. However, closer inspection will expose the door’s hatch and health, revealing its true nature to players.
