Storage Barrel Horizontal

The Storage Barrel Horizontal is a craftable and deployable storage container in RUST, primarily used for holding resources, components, and other various items. Role-players will likely use the wooden barrel’s old-fashioned appearance in their base designs.

This item will most assuredly be proclaimed “Pay to Win,” given that you can place more of them in a space similar to that of a Large Wood Box, giving you more overall storage. They do have the drawback, however, of not being able to be locked like standard containers. 

How to get a Storage Barrel Horizontal

The Storage Barrel Horizontal is a DLC-exclusive blueprint that is available only to those who purchase the Base Decor Pack: Frontier from the RUST Item Store. It will appear in your crafting list after purchasing it.

  • It doesn’t appear on the tech tree
  • It doesn’t drop from crates or NPCs as loot
  • It does not require a workbench to craft

How to use a Storage Barrel Horizontal

Regarding placement, the Storage Barrel Horizontal functions the same as any other container in RUST. After obtaining the item, add it to your hotbar and select the item so that it is active. The blue or red pre-placement indicators will appear, showing you when the item can or cannot be placed.

Players can cleanly fit six of these barrels if arranged properly onto a single foundation, with six additional barrels added above them using the half-wall floor technique. The two rear containers, however, will not be accessible if all walls are placed; consider using a Garage Door.

For those wishing to stack these barrels, they are placeable on both player-crafted floor-shelving or Salvaged Shelves. This contrasts with the default Large Wood Boxes, which can only fit four on a single foundation when perfectly placed.

Lastly, it’s important to note they cannot be locked with either a Code Lock or Key Lock, giving them a significant disadvantage.

Industrial Interface

Each Storage Barrel Horizontal can have up to 4 Storage Adapters equipped simultaneously for use with the Industrial System, similar to the Large Wood Box.
