The Wooden Spear is an early-game primitive weapon in RUST that remains relevant as an economic raiding tool, even late into the game. It is a favorite of nakeds everywhere due to its relatively low cost, default blueprint status, and ability to be thrown efficiently.
As a weapon, the wooden spear does a small amount of damage in average-speed thrusts. It is one of the most-used wipe day barrel smashing tools but is quickly replaced by more durable options like the longsword, salvaged sword, or salvaged cleaver. As mentioned, wooden spears are commonly used to eco-raid bases via strikes to soft-side walls. Players may gain additional use out of broken wooden spears by crafting them into Stone Spears.
