Rust Blueprints Recipes, Research and Recycle Kits Guide

By   /   Jan 12, 2014

Blueprints are basically the crafting recipes you need to learn what you need to craft a certain item in Rust. You can find these by killing zombies or they can be researched with the Research Kit or they can be looted in crates around the map.

When you have a blueprint in the quick-access bar, you can use it, and it will research one for you. Once you have learned a recipe, it will stay with you even after your characters death. Do note that blueprints are to be used one-time only.

You can also use blueprints by right-clicking them in your inventory and press study. However, unlike your inventory, once you die, you keep the blueprint learned and can craft the item.

Research Kit

Research Kits are used to research various weapons found throughout the world. You must have the weapon in order to research how to create it.

The research kit works like the blueprints. Do note that some weapons in the game can’t be researched. Research Kits have a random chance to have multiple uses. You’ll need to find many Research Kits to learn all the craftable weapons.

You need to have a Research Kit in your inventory. Then drag the research kit onto the weapon that you’d like to research while standing near a Workbench. Doing so will complete the research and the weapon will become available in the crafting menu.

Recycle Kits

Recycle Kits are very similar to Research Kits since they require both the same resources and follow the same steps. They are used to research various weapons found throughout the world.

You must have the weapon in order to research how to create it. The recycle kit works exactly like the Research Kit. Before you can start research, you need to have a piece of paper with you because one research requires one paper.

You need to have a Recycle Kit and one Paper in your inventory. Then drag the recycle kit onto the weapon that you like to research. Doing so will complete the research and weapon will become available in the crafting menu.
