The Stone Barricade is a deployable defensive barricade in RUST, used by players in PVP and as adornments for bases. They are available to be researched by all players as a tier 1 workbench blueprint.
Barricades take an assortment of forms in RUST, ranging from tiny wooden walls that are barely sufficient to duck behind to mammoth stone gates fit for protecting a fortress from invaders.
Stone Barricades are a low-tier defensive cover, usually deployed by PVP players for immediate field protection from small-arms fire. They are the only barricade that competes with the Wooden Barricade Cover in the field, primarily due to their low stone cost and because they don’t require a workbench to craft. They may also be used when building and designing a base as defensive features such as shooting floors and peak downs to achieve unorthodox angles for base defense scenarios.
Stone Barricades are found in the lowest tier crates and barrels and dropped from both types of NPC dweller scientists. They do not add upkeep costs to bases that use them and will remain in place without decay as long as they are affected by a Tool Cupboard.
