Legacy Wood Shelter
The Legacy Wood Shelter (LWS) is a deployable shelter in RUST. This 1×1 square wooden base comes equipped with a door and key lock, making it a great emergency shelter. This item was added in December of 2023 as part of the 10th-anniversary celebration of RUST as a standalone PC game.
Players may deploy LWSs on flat surfaces around the map where building block status does not exist; monument anti-build radius, too close to roads, etc. These structures can be quite tedious to place and may not be placed in any kind of standing water. They can be placed in caves.
How to get a Legacy Wood Shelter
The Legacy Wood Shelter is a default blueprint, requiring no effort to craft other than the initial cost of 600 wood. It does not require a workbench of any kind. This item does not currently drop from any known crates or NPCs.
The Legacy Wood Shelter emits its own building privilege radius similar to a TC without one tangible or visible. Players that had nothing to do with the deployment of the entity will be blocked from building directly around it. Players MAY NOT place one of these shelters in any area in which they do not have existing building privileges or in safe areas.
Deployment of entities inside the shelter
Currently, the only location you can place entities is within the confines of the walls and on the ground. You can’t actually place any deployables on the walls or framing itself, nor can you spray paint it. The built in wood door cannot be removed, however the keylock can be removed and replaced with either another solo lock or a Keypad Lock. Not even Wooden Ladders may be applied.
How durable is the wood shelter?
Don’t kid yourself into thinking that this shelter type is anything other than very temporary. It is damaged by just about everything you can imagine, including rocks.
The LWS currently has 500 Hit Points, and all calculations were done based on that. The attached wooden door, by default, has its own 500 health but does, in fact, SHARE health with the building. It just updates at a different rate but will eventually match.
