Rust Research Kit Crafting and Armor Sets Guide – How To Craft

By   /   Mar 21, 2014

In Rust, a Research Kit enables you to craft different items and Armor.

In order to craft something, you need to get to the Crafting Table followed by dragging the Research Kit on anything you want to craft which will add that particular thing in the Crafting Menu.

Also, note that you need to be on a Workbench to craft an item. For more help on Rust, read our Base Design, Crafting Recipes and Blueprints Guide.
