Guns in Rust

 

Eoka Pistol

Crafting:

  • 150 Wood
  • 35 Metal fragments

Ammo:

  • Handmade Shell
  • One shot

 

Pros:

  • Cheap to use.
  • Wildcard

Cons:

  • You can't aim down the sights anymore
  • Uses the flint mechanism from Legacy.
  • Single Shot

Overview:

This fine pistol features the ability to blow a hole in the guy in front of you, maybe, sometimes, eventually.  This pistol can be a powerful ally in a pinch.  It's cheap to make, you don't have to find the blueprint, and the ammo is cheap as well only needing 5 gunpowder and 5 stones. I would hold on to this guy for everyday jaunts in the early game.


Revolver

Crafting:

  • 125 Metal fragments
  • 25 Cloth
  • 1 Pipe

Ammo:

  • Pistol Bullet
  • 8 Rounds

 

Pros:

  • Is a great upgrade from the Eoka
  • Fires as fast as you pull the trigger

Cons:

  • Short to Medium range only
  • Low damage

Overview:

This eight shooter has a really nice feel to it. If you have the funds, I'd recommend this gun as a helpful upgrade to the Eoka and a reliable peacemaker.


Waterpipe Shotgun

Crafting:

  • 100 Metal Fragments
  • 300 Wood

Ammo:

  • Handmade shell, 12 gauge buckshot, 12 gauge slug
  • Single shot

 

Pros:

  • Cheaper than the pump action or double barrel
  • Default blueprint

Cons:

  • Single shot
  • Slow reload

Overview:

The equalizer!  This gun yields a ton of damage up close.  Slow but effective at close range, this gun has become a favorite of sneaky Newman's everywhere.  Oh, and the waterpipe shotgun doesn't cost any pipes!


Semi Auto Rifle

Crafting:

  • 450 Metal Fragments
  • 1 Semi automatic body
  • 1 Metal spring

Ammo:

  • 5.56 Rifle Cartridge
  • 16 round magazine

 

Pros:

  • Low cost
  • Low recoil
  • Accurate at low to medium range
  • Fires as fast as you pull the trigger

Cons:

  • Low damage compared to other 5.56 weapons
  • Bullets drop quickly

Overview:

This popular gun is a bit of an orphan… Not powerful enough to use as a primary weapon for many players, but it’s also far more accessible for most.  It fires 5.56 rounds as fast as you can pull the trigger, has good stopping power, and low cost for a semi automatic weapon, making it easily attainable.


Semi Auto Pistol

Crafting:

  • 15 High quality metal
  • 1 Semi automatic body
  • 1 Metal pipe
  • 1 Metal spring

Ammo:

  • Pistol bullet
  • 10 round magazine

 

Pros:

  • Lowest cost high quality weapon
  • Low recoil
  • Accurate at low to medium range
  • Fires as fast as you pull the trigger

Cons:

  • Bullets drop quickly

Overview:

Similar to the Legacy favorite the P250, this gun is the sidearm of choice for many Rust players.  With low HQM cost and high accuracy you can drop even geared enemies in short order with a few well placed shots.


Thompson

Crafting:

  • 35 High quality metal
  • 100 Wood
  • 1 SMG body
  • 2 Metal springs

Ammo:

  • Pistol bullet
  • 20 round magazine

 

Pros:

  • Accurate
  • Low ammunition cost

Cons:

  • Expensive

Overview:

The Thompson has the second fastest rate of fire in the game and arguably the best zoom when looking down the sights. That being said, it is not as powerful nor does it have the range the Assault Rifle does however if you want some suppressive fire this baby can do a number on the opposition (until you have to reload).


Custom SMG

Crafting:

  • 30 High quality metal
  • 1 SMG body
  • 2 Metal springs

Ammo:

  • Pistol bullet
  • 30 round magazine

 

Pros:

  • Medium range
  • Low recoil
  • Accurate at low to medium range

Cons:

  • Low damage per shot
  • Eats up ammo

Overview:

The underdog.  Often overlooked this gun is the fastest firing gun in the game with incredibly low recoil.  If you know how to harness this beast it can be just as deadly as an AK in most situations.


Bolt Action Rifle

Crafting:

  • 30 High quality metal
  • 1 Rifle body
  • 5 Metal pipes
  • 2 Metal springs

Ammo:

  • 5.56 Rifle cartridge
  • 4 round magazine

Pros:

  • You can aim down the sights
  • It shoots bullets
  • It's a classic

Cons:

  • Slow rate of fire
  • Better for long range combat

Overview:

Deadly.  You can aim down the sight (mind the wobble), a loud crack when you fire and it kills your enemies dead in their tracks. Inexpensive compared to the AK, I'd highly recommend moving one of these to the top of your crafting queue.


Assault Rifle

Crafting:

  • 50 High quality metal
  • 200 Wood
  • 1 Rifle body

  • Hard to find

Overview:

So I heard you like to blow holes in people. Well good news I have just the option for you. Now you might have heard of this gun before, commonly called the AK. The sound makes your heart drop right out of your chest. Oh yes I'm talking about the, gas powered, 30 round clip, 5.56 NATO cartridge using, Assault Rifle. User beware, you may have extreme bouts of aggression or an uncontrollable urge to go raiding once you acquire this weapon. But by god it will be worth it. Thank you for stopping by the Rustafied Gun shop and have a wonderful day! This gun is a work of art and a force to be reckoned with. With it's high rate of fire and great range enemies beware.


Pump Action Shotgun

Crafting:

  • 30 High quality metal

  • 2 Metal springs

Ammo:

  • Handmade Shell, 12 Gauge Buckshot, 12 Gauge Slug

  • Medium - Long range
  • Tight Spread with 12 Gauge Buckshot
  • Accurate with incredible stopping power using a 12 Gauge Slug

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Hard to find

Overview:

This shotgun is impressive.  The pellet spread from this bad boy is super tight and can deal consistent damage much further than the waterpipe. 


Flame Thrower

Crafting:

  • 16 High quality metal
  • 6 Metal pipes
  • 100 Low grade fuel
  • 2 Empty propane tanks

Ammo:

  • Low grade fuel
  • 50 Low grade fuel capacity

Pros:

Cons:

  • High fuel consumption

It's a fucking FLAME THROWER!  You can basically burn shit down with this, light up the night, and become a beacon for counter-raiders everywhere.


Double Barrel Shotgun

Crafting:

  • 400 Metal fragments
  • 2 Metal pipes

Ammo:

  • Handmade shells, 12 gauge buckshot, 12 gauge slug
  • 2 Round capacity

Pros:

  • Two rounds per reload
  • Fires quickly

Cons:

  • Requires metal pipes
  • Rather large model when looking down sights

This thing is HUGE.  When it fires the boom rivals some explosives.  It is rather clunky however, and costs more than making a few waterpipe shotguns.


MP5A4

Crafting:

  • Can't be crafted

Ammo:

  • Pistol bullet
  • 30 Round magazine

Pros:

  • Fires rapidly
  • Relatively  accurate

Cons:

  • Higher resource cost vs. Thompson or Custom SMG
  • Can't be crafted

Aesthetically pleasing, has a sweet equip animation, and it does have skins.  Since it now can't be crafted it's place has yet to be seen.


LR-300

Crafting:

  • Can't be crafted

Ammo:

  • 5:56 Rifle cartridge
  • 30 Round magazine

Pros:

  • Awesome animation when equipped
  • Fast rate of fire

Cons:

  • Inaccurate in burst or full auto firing at range
  • Can't be crafted

Well, it's an automatic weapon, it can't be crafted, it doesn't have any skins, and it's not as awesome as the AK.


M92

Crafting:

  • Can't be crafted

Ammo:

  • Pistol bullet
  • 15 Round Magazine

Pros:

  • High damage
  • High magazine capacity
