The Wooden Barricade Cover is a wooden post crossbar barricade held together with rope that provides minimal defensive protection for players placing it in PVP situations. They are available to be researched by all players as a tier 1 blueprint.
Barricades take an assortment of forms in RUST, ranging from small, barely sufficient wooden walls to duck behind to mammoth stone gates for protecting a fortress from invaders.
Players can place the Wooden Barricade Covers on relatively flat ground (but not foundations), with their most significant utility being quick small-arms fire protection. They are currently one of the more preferred methods for this application due to their low cost to craft and their non-reliance on a workbench.
Wooden Barricade Covers are found in various lower-tier crates and barrels and dropped from NPC dweller scientists. They do not add upkeep costs to bases that use them and will remain in place without decay if they are affected by a Tool Cupboard.
