Can Turrets Shoot Through Prison Walls in Rust?

Yes, auto turrets can shoot through prison cell walls in Rust. Players cannot shoot through them, which makes using prison cell walls a really good option for defending your base.

Players can use the prison cell walls and gate to efficiently fight raiders that want to attack their base. Unfortunately, prison cell walls are very weak.

They have the same amount of health as a wooden wall, which is 250 HP. Luckily, they aren’t as weak as structures made out of wood, and they don’t burn as easily.

Though they will protect you by shooting enemies at a safe distance, the prison cell walls can be destroyed in a few seconds with a rocket or two.

Also, a tip that players should know before placing the prison cell walls around their base is that they cannot pick them up once they’ve been placed. So, make sure that you don’t leave yourself stuck after leaving the prison cell wall somewhere in the base.

Another smart structure that you can use to defend from raiders in Rust is the floor grill. If you place turrets on lower floors of your base and floor grills above them, the turrets can shoot enemies that got inside the base.
