Improvised Balaclava

The Improvised Balaclava is a full-covering headpiece with its earliest mentions in the game dating back to August 2015.

As a stand-alone article of clothing that occupies the entire head slot, it has remarkably high defensive statistics for its cost and availability. It is a favorite early game helmet for those living in the arctic biome, with its low cost and having the highest single-piece cold protection in RUST.

Improvised balaclavas are found in low-tier loot crates and barrels and drop from the tunnel and underwater dweller NPCs. Players can research it at a research table or through scrap investment at a tier 1 workbench. While learned via the Tier 1 Work Bench, it doesn’t require a workbench to craft.

The improvised balaclava may be recycled for a minimal amount of Cloth and is a prominent item popular to be skinned.
