Crafting Edit

A Rocket can be crafted with:

To craft one (1) rocket from scratch it takes in total :

  • 100 Metal Fragments (170 Wood to smelt in small furnace)(Or split metal ore stacks in a large furnace to increase yield per work cycle)
  • 1400 Sulfur (1168 Wood to smelt in small furnace)(Again if stacks are split in a large furnace, you can yield up to 14 sulfur per work cycle)
  • 1950 Charcoal (2594 Wood in a small furnace)(the 1168 wood and 170 used to smelt the Metal Fragments and Sulfur can subsidize the 2594 wood requirement)
  • 30 Low Grade Fuel


  • It takes 10 seconds to craft one rocket.

Damage Edit

The number of rockets to kill a player with/without armor is:

  • Far off rocket splash damage: 2 Rockets
  • Close to target splash damage: 1 Rocket
  • Direct hit: 1 Rocket

Trivia Edit

  • Note: There are three different types of rockets:
    • The regular rocket ammunition (125 damage). (pictured above)
    • The Incendiary Rocket, painted red, and has the capability to cause fires to buildings/players.
    • The High Velocity Rocket, that has increased range/accuracy, however, does 40% less damage to buildings (75 damage).
  • All rockets laying on the ground share the same view model.
  • Rockets will not explode unless fired from a Rocket Launcher.
  • The Smoke Rocket is no longer available in vanilla rust. It created a thick cloud of smoke to blind enemies, for gaining ground on offense or gaining time on defense.
