Storage Barrel Vertical
The Storage Barrel Vertical 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 Vertical

How to use a Storage Barrel Vertical
Regarding placement, the Storage Barrel Vertical 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 access and cleanly fit 5 of these barrels if arranged properly onto a single foundation, with 3 additional barrels being added above them using the triangle floor technique. 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 4 on a single foundation when perfectly placed.
