Water Barrel

The Water Barrel is a deployable water storage system in RUST used primarily for land-based farms.

While using a Hose Tool to check available ports, players will find the standard Water Out and Water In options. Water barrels can hold up to 20,000ml of liquid at a time. Players may drink directly from them when water is present. Placing them requires a semi-flat surface, foundations included, and appropriate building authorization.

Water barrels are found in an assortment of low-tier crates and barrels, as well as dropped from dweller scientist types. Players may purchase them directly from Bandit Camp at the cost of 30 Scrap, learn them directly via the research table, or through a scrap investment into the tier 1 workbench tech tree.
