While you may start off with just a small board in the Raft survival game, the main objective is to expand your raft till it no longer resembles one. As the size of your raft increases, so does the need for faster traversal. That is where ziplines come in, allowing you to quickly move from one section of the Raft to another.
Our guide will get you started with setting up ziplines on your Raft and tips on how best to use them.
Where To Find Zipline Parts In Raft
There are three parts of the zipline given as part of the story upon completing certain steps. The location of all of them is explained below:
Once you are in Caravan Town, you need to explore the place around and you will eventually find a well and a few pipes that will be coming from above. There is a hand pump at the junction of all pipes. Use that hand pump to fill the well with water. Once it is filled, you will get the first part of your zipline.
For the second part of the zipline, you need to search the place near the Container Tower a bit. You will find a bicycle and pipe that is going down deep in the sea. Go underwater following that pipe.
If you’re running low on oxygen, there will be bubbles rising up, go towards the bubbles and you will be able to fill your oxygen up. Keep following the pipe and you will find a blue container. Inside that container is the second part of the zipline as well as the Metal Detector blueprint.
For the third part, go to the top of the island and find a rocket. Once you have found a rocket, light it up with explosive powder. If you happen to not have explosive powder then simply kill a pufferfish.
So when you light up a rocket, follow the direction it goes to. Right below the rocket, there will be two floating islands. Go to the bigger one to get the third part of the zipline.
How To Make/Use Zipline In Raft
You need to make two ziplines: one at a higher position and one at a bit lower position. Then connect both ziplines with Rope.
You will need 5x Plank, 5x Rope, and 1x Bolt to craft a single zipline. However, you will still not be able to ride them.
To use a zipline, you will need to have a Zipline Tool that can be crafted with 15x Plastic, 5x Scrap, 1x Hinge, and 1x Bolt.
You can also choose to make the Electric Zipline Tool with 6x Scrap, 2x Titanium Ingot, and 1x Circuit Board.
The difference between both zipline tools is that the Electric Zipline Tool can ride both up and down the ziplines. The basic tool, however, can only ride down the ziplines, not up.
Keep in mind that Zipline Tools have durability, meaning that you can only use them for a limited amount of time before they break. You need to craft a new Zipline Tool after the first one breaks.
