How to Destroy a Wooden Door in Rust

Wooden Doors are extremely weak, and anyone can easily destroy them.

Some of the most important factors when you need to know what type of weapon to use against them are the time it takes to destroy the door and the number of resources needed.

Since Wooden Doors are extremely weak to fire, it is usually a really good idea to destroy them using some kind of fire weapon.

This is why the Molotov Cocktail, Flame Thrower, and Fire Arrows are some of the best choices for destroying a Wooden Door in Rust.

Here are the exact stats for the weapons that we consider best for destroying the Wooden Door in Rust, so you can personally see why each one of these is an amazing choice:

So, if someone opens a Wooden Door and still somehow blocks the way into the base, you will need to use 50% more resources to destroy that door.

Best Weapon to Destroy Wooden Doors in Rust

As you can tell from the table, the best weapon to destroy a Wooden Door in Rust is the Molotov Cocktail. It is the easiest to make, and it will finish the job in seconds. Shooting 50 Fire Arrows might not be the most fun experience in the game.

Using Explosive Ammo would be a total waste. The Flame Thrower would also be a really good choice if you already have a spare one.

If you have to make a new one just for this, then it is not worth the resources.

When it comes to melee weapons, the Salvaged Sword is the only piece of equipment that can destroy the door in less than 6 minutes. It is also the only one that does it so fast with such a small amount of copies.

The Longsword can also do it in almost 6 minutes, but you will need to craft 12 of those bad boys to actually do it, which is a huge chore.

That’s everything you need to know about how to destroy a Wooden Door in Rust!
