The Concrete Hatchet is a skin available for the Stone Hatchet, released as part of Facepunch’s General Permanent Store items with the Lumberjack DLC in the October 2022 The Lumberjack update. It’s original bundled sale price is listed at $12.99 USD and, like all other permanent item store items, isn’t available for resale on the steam marketplace.
While possessing the exact same collections rates and function as the stone hatchet, the concrete hatchet brings a more rustic outdoor aesthetic to the wood chopping experience. Constructed of broken-off rebar rods interconnected with fracture concrete slabs, this one-of-a-kind creation is sure to make any tree beg for a merciful end.
As its base item is a default blueprint, the concrete hatchet would be available immediately to every naked on every beach that purchases the DLC. Its primary use is to gather Wood in RUST. It requires no fuel to operate but takes consistent durability loss while being used to hit trees or any other entity.
Unlike Chainsaws, the concrete hatchet will require players to manually strike the trees to bring them down. It is quite normal to use a hatchet as a melee weapon, sometimes going so far as to use it as a soft-side raiding tool. It is not recommended for use with a Wood Gathering Tea due to its limited resource gathering capacity as an entry level tool.
In addition to being an in game Skin, it is also directly spawnable as its own entity type by server administrators from the F1 Console.
