There are various structures in the game, walls, doors, doorways, stairs, ramps, ceilings, pillars, foundations that can be made out of wood or metal.

What can I break with my hatchet/pickaxe and how long does it take?

What can I blow up with grenades or c4 and how many does it take?

    @downvoter: Why the downvote? This question is highly relevant to securing your base in the game, but the answer for different items is scattered across the internet, and for some can't seem to be found at all. Dec 4, 2013 at 19:01

This is an accurate list of things you can destroy and the effort you need. I didn't tried personally to destroy all the things listed, but many that I tried confirm those numbers.

Pratically is important to remember that you can destroy all except pillars, ceilings and foundations.

The playrust wiki (http://playrustwiki.com/wiki/List_of_things_to_Craft) lists all the items and what can be broke on every individual page from that list. For example, for the wood door :

Wood Doors are destructable - they can be taken down when it has been hit 200 times with a rock or 80 times with a pick axe.

The wiki will also tell if sometimes item can't be destroyed. However, they might despawn under certain conditions.

  • Great answer on hard to find material. Not sure why the downvotes on this answer. Jan 15, 2014 at 20:28
  • Actually I edited my answer because it was getting downvotes. Truth be said, the first one was lacking details and kinda deserved it.

  • This answer is still massively incomplete to the point that I can't even consider it an answer; this should just be a comment. Jan 19, 2014 at 7:34
  • Is there a point to copy/paste huge amount of data from another wiki, especially when this information is subject to change as the game is in an early alpha stage ? This will lead to outdated informations here, hence hurting the quality of the answers.

    There is a point in aggregating and summarizing it in one, easy to find place, yes. That's literally the whole reason this site exists. Feb 14, 2014 at 20:31
