If Wood is 250 and Stone 500, why is Metal 200?
Because it’s supposed to have differing protection. Bullet resistant is one. But it should also be melee resistant which I don’t think it is much.
Can I find the stats somewhere?
I want to understand if Metal is better than stone against Pick/Axe/Rock and Guns/Explosives.
any table like in Legacy that states something like:
Wood = 100x Hatchet, 300x Pickaxe, 1x C4, 40x 556, etc. (examples only not real data)
from what i can tell this is mostly up to date. rustafied is always a good source.
It’s not so much about damage as it is durability. Metal walls will destroy your equipment FAST.
yeah but you go from 2 c4 protection per stone wall, to 1 per sheet metal wall. the sheet metal takes about the same amount of picks as a stone wall.
So… build the one that matches what resources you have… or wait until you have both and build an armored wall.
I thought metal was tool proof?
Because bullet proof isn’t much of a perk, would be a tier below stone if that’s true.
Metal is NOT tool proof. I’ve hacked through a few armored walls. It takes a long time even with a small army of people hitting them and a ton of pickaxes. I think it would discourage any but the largest groups from attempting a tool raid. Anybody who defending who hits it with a hammer one time will set the raiders back 10-20 minutes, if not more.
I’ve seen people discuss the weakness of sheet metal in real life, so in that sense this seems to work. But gameplay wise I don’t think it does.
At this point I just skip metal and go straight to armored, as does just about everyone else. I haven’t seen any metal ways. It’s always stone, then armored.
Seems like this might work:
Wood = I think wood is good right now.
Stone = 2 C4, takes 6 fresh pickaxes to get through.
**Metal **= 2 C4, takes 10 fresh pickaxes to get through.
Armored = 3 C4, impervious to tools.
EDIT: Although as it is the metal walls can make a decent fence I suppose.
