Work Bench Level 1
The Work Bench Level 1 (Tier 1) in RUST is a deployable item for crafting and a status-checking system that regulates progression toward endgame crafting. In addition to offering a means to tech-tree hard-to-get blueprints, standing at a workbench also potentially decreases the crafting time of items.
Workbenches are default blueprints and may be crafted by anyone, granted that the person crafting has access to the prior tier. Players will commonly craft second-tier benches at one of the public benches to save 50 Scrap.
Work bench level 1’s are craftable anytime by anyone while crafting a Tier 2 Workbench requires the player to be standing in front of a Tier 1 Workbench. Crafting a Tier 3 bench then requires standing before a Tier 2 bench. This is a callback to the earlier mention as a means to regulate progression.
