So, sulfur and charcoal are essential crafting ingredients to make gunpowder Rust. However, the process is not that simple. This guide shows you how to make gunpowder in rust as best as possible.

The essential component for making gunpowder is sulfur ore; therefore, let’s look at what it looks like and where it is most frequently found before discussing how to get gunpowder.

Farm Sulfur:

We must first engage in some sulfur farming. Sulfur ores resemble rocks with a yellow hue surrounding them. You must dig rock nodes to obtain ore. A rock that contains a lot of sulfur will be greenish-yellow in color. Additionally, you can come across some stray rocks that contain sulfur ore.

Burn Sulfur Ore In A Furnace:

We must melt the sulfur using wood-burning furnaces within our base after mining some sulfur ore outside. Using a large boiler, you can melt more sulfur ore faster and with less wood.

Produce Charcoal:

While you are melting sulfur, charcoal is produced from the burning wood in your furnaces. Just keep your furnaces running if you need additional charcoal.

Crafting Gunpowder:

You are now prepared to craft gunpowder. You have everything you need to make charcoal, liquefied sulfur, and gunpowder. The only thing left to decide is how to craft gunpowder.

To make gunpowder, you must have a Tier 1 Workbench, though you can also use a mixing table. A mixing table gives you a significant advantage when producing large quantities of bullets, gunpowder, or explosives. To make ten gunpowder, a mixing table needs twenty cooked sulfur and twenty charcoal.

How to Get Gunpowder via Recycling?

Recycle machines are a commonly overlooked method of obtaining gunpowder in Rust Console, but you may produce more gunpowder than you might anticipate, and you don’t need to farm any sulfur. Particularly if you do loot runs through military tunnels, oil rigs, or cargo ships. 

Many scientists can be found in these monuments, and they frequently drop shotgun shells, which contain three times as much gunpowder as normal. Regarding military tunnels, scientists frequently drop many flares, which may be recycled for x5 Metal Fragments and x5 Gun Powder.

If you have a lot of Scraps, you can buy Smoke Grenades at Outpost for 5 Scrap. You will receive x18 gunpowder and x25 metal fragments for every Smoke Grenade recycled. This might be a nice side job for your team in Rust to obtain extra Gunpowder and Metal Fragments if you aren’t required to undertake any research.

What Are The Uses of Gunpowder? 

Gunpowder only functions as ammunition, but it may be combined with other materials to make various other rust items, including different kinds of bullets. In contrast, gunpowder is used to create “rifle bullets, incendiary rockets,  incendiary pistol bullets,  shotgun shells, hv pistol ammo, and even grenades,” and is essential for everything.

Additionally, you can use gunpowder to launch an attack on one of the enemy fields or to defend yourself in case they decide to come after you.

Final Words:

In this guide, we discussed how to make gunpowder in rust. Decide which of the approaches described above is the best. Some people find farming enjoyable. Obtaining gunpowder by recycling is unquestionably a feasible option. So try each approach out and see which one suits you the most. We hope you find this guide helpful.
