Starter Bus Stop Base Design (2018)

The Starter Bus Stop Base Design

This stater bus stop base design, created by our partner xRaw.

This base is a starter-to-main setup. It’s been designed in such a way that the base can be built in stages and converted to the main base when ready. Initialized with just two triangle foundations on the open side of a bus stop.

While compact, this base offers many advanced RUST base design features. The first stage of the base’s build is extremely affordable and cheap to upgrade to full armor. While the options to continue expanding on the base design can be endless, this makes for a fantastic, expensive to raid base.

Building Cost

  • Metal Fragments: 4,900
  • Wood: 4,100
  • Stone: 17,300

Upkeep Cost:

  • Metal Fragments: 1,500
  • Wood: 0
  • Stone: 2,900

With that, you’re here to watch his video, enjoy!

The Cheapest Bus Stop Starter-Main Base


Let’s jump into the base here is two large drop boxes and two small drop boxes.


Come around the side here and there is a shop front so you can see outside.


Coming around to the side, underneath the bus stop back is a drop box. Through here you can pass loot through to the core of the base.


Jumping up here there’s three furnaces and shot gun traps.

Coming into here is the second floor of the base.


Check out the description for the links for my giveaway.


Six large boxes in here as well as a large box or small box ramp inside here.


Jumping down here takes you to the bottom floor of the base.


Here’s your workbench, if you continue around you get to the middle of your base.


In here there’s at least 8 large boxes, and four furnaces and your TC. The TC’s going to cost another 12 satchels to raid because of the reinforced glass.


Getting the placement on the first two foundations is quite tricky. You want to make sure that outside of both of these foundations lines up with the outside of the bus stop.
