Rust Crafting Components

Rust crafting components player guide.

Rust has going through multiple versions of their blueprints system throughout their early access years leading up to leaving early access. Facepunch seems to have finally settled on the current blueprint system, commonly known as Blueprints 3.0. The 3rd version of the Rust blueprints system is based around required crafting components and scrap metal that can be acquired in a growing number of ways on the island.

Here you will find all the components that Rust has added, what crafted items they are used in, and the amount of each component required to craft those items. We also try to provide as much other helpful information about the Rust Crafting Components system in this guide.
