Nailgun Nails

Nailgun Nails are the exclusive ammunition type for the Nailgun, the only automatic early wipe projectile weapon. They are a default blueprint in RUST with vanilla server settings and are the only ammunition type to require a single material (Metal Fragments) to craft.

Nailgun Nails are not dropped by any known sources and are crafted by players only. Each crafting cycle will yield 5 nails at a time, and like Wooden Arrows they can be reclaimed and re-used.

While there are no in-game stores in RUST that stock Nailgun Nails, players may sell this ammunition from their Vending Machine shops.

Nailguns are considered a tier 0 weapon type and typically won’t be used beyond the first few days of a fresh wipe cycle.  However, they make for a wonderful low-cost addition to early game exploration kits. Their relatively low damage output coupled with their extremely limited range (sub 10 meters) makes them disposable once tier 1 blueprints such as the Revolver are acquired.
