Welcome back Valheim fans! I hope you guys are ready to read into the core of our beloved Valheim. As the title states, we are going to be digging into Who made Valheim. That being said this blog will be jumping into the creators behind the game and what their intentions were with the development of Valheim. So please stay tuned and enjoy learning the background of this treasure.
Lets get started! As some of you may know the creators of Valheim “Iron Gates” is a small company operating out of Sweden. Consisting of only four full-time employees and one part-time consultant, They also partner with Coffee Stain Publishing as their marketing staff.
The goal of the game is to prove your worth to Odin by fighting alongside him to reclaim the forgotten lands of Valheim. In order to do so, you will have to adapt to Valheims hostile environments. Whether that means gathering resources, building farms and outposts, and even destroying monsters that may get in your way. The end goal is to work up the strength to take on the nine Forsaken Ones to free Valheim and take back the land.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much detail into Iron Gates’s creation, but who doesn’t love short and simple occasionally, right? However, I must say they may have not given a lot of detail but this sure is a very entertaining game and I know all of us Valheim fans are grateful that it has been created! In conclusion, Valhein is an overall well-made game and I can’t wait to teach you about it on our next visit!

In this post, we will be showing you the easiest ways to get skins for Rust. In Rust skins have become a fashion accessory, before the team system, you and your friends would need to wear identical clothing so you do not accidentally shoot each other.
This is the Page for the Steam skin market, it has a lot of Categories for every game, on the right side you can easily select Rust as the filter and it will show only skins for Rust. (as seen above after the filter is selected)
Rust Item Store:
Shown above is a picture of the current (or possibly not current) skins being sold from the Rust Item Store. These skins change on or about every Thursday with new skins that the FacePunch team approves.
Another way to get skins is by trading current skins you have with other people on your friends’ list or with random people. PLEASE NOTE: Trading with people you don’t know can be kind of Sketchy, make sure you have 2FA enabled on your steam account as you need to confirm the trade on your Steam Authentication app, that way you do not get scammed.
After clicking the Trade Button, this is the window that will pop up, here you can view any incoming offers, what offers you sent, Trade history, as well as a couple of helpful links if you have questions.
By the end of all your trading, you can view the skins you have gotten by hovering over your name at the top of the steam page, and clicking “inventory” and select Rust to view the skins you purchased.

Valheim has many different ranges of tools, as it is a very advanced and versatile game. We will be going over each tool and the area of expertise for that specific tool. Such as Logging, Farming, Mining, Etc… So let’s get started!
The Stone Axe is used on softer woods, such as beech, fir, and pine trees, and is generally used for tree-felling. You can craft this from 5 wood and 4 stones. The defensive qualities consist of a Block power at a 10, Parry force is at a 20, and Parry bonus is 2X. The offensive side of the Axe has Slash damage of 15, a Backstab of 3X, and a Knockback of 50.
Following the Stone Axe, we have the Flint Axe. You can access this tool after a workbench has been built. The Flint Axe is also the second woodcutting tool. You can craft the Axe from 4 wood and 6 flints. Just like the Stone Axe The defensive qualities consist of a Block power at a 10, Parry force is at a 20, and Parry bonus is 2X.

The offensive side of the Axe has Slash damage of 95, a Backstab of 3X, and a Knockback of 60.
The Cultivator is used to cultivate the land so that it is prepared to plant seeds. To craft this tool you will need 5 core wood and 5 bronze. If the player is on Grass mode the player can then; regrow grass on patches of dirt, regrow lily pads on water, create sand on the shoreline and regrow cattails in certain areas around the shore.
The Hoe can be crafted in the workbench, and the materials for crafting require 5 wood and 2 stones. This tool is used to elevate or level the ground. It also can be used to apply Paved Road ground decor. To level, the ground keeps this in mind When shift-clicking it attaches the hoe to the level of ground you are pointing at. When not shift clicked it defaults the hoe to the level of ground you are standing on.
The Antler Pickaxe is used for mining Stone, Copper, Tin, and Iron. This will be the first mining tool you can use before progressing further in the game. You can craft this from 10 wood pieces and 1 Hard antler. Keep in mind this pickaxe can not be upgraded and is the weakest Axe in the game. The defensive qualities consist of a Block power at a 10, Parry force is at a 20, and Parry bonus is 2X. The offensive side of the Axe has pierced damage of 18, a Backstab of 3X, and a Knockback of 50.
The Bronze Pickaxe is the start of the progression of the Pickaxe. To craft this you will need 3 core wood and 10 bronze. The defensive qualities consist of a Block power at a 10, Parry force is at a 20, and Parry bonus is 2X. The offensive side of the Axe has pierced damage of 25, a Backstab of 3X, and a Knockback of 50.
Here we have the third mining tool, the Iron Pickaxe. In order to mine Silver ore and Obsidian, you will need the Iron Pickaxe. To craft, you will need 3 core wood and 20 iron.

The offensive side of the Axe has pierced damage of 33, a Backstab of 3X, and a Knockback of 50.
This item is you will need quite often in Valheim, it is called the Workbench. Used to craft, repair items, and it allows the construction of many buildings. In order for a player to be able to craft and repair, Workbenches must be roofed and 70% enclosed. Repairing equipment that was initially crafted using the Workbench does not cost any additional materials. The Workbench is one of the limited structures that do not have prerequisites for their construction beside a Hammer. You will need 10 wood pieces to craft this item.
The Stonecutter is used for building stone structures and crafting items. To build stone floors and walls you need to place a stonecutter near a Workbench. You can craft this from 10 wood pieces, 2 iron, and 4 stone.
Forges are buildable structures found in Valheim, it is an essential structure that lets you create and repair items that have metal components in their recipes. It must be upgraded to reach its full potential. To craft this you will need 4 stone, 4 coal, 10 wood, and 6 copper.
The Spinning Wheel is a bit different than the rest, it becomes available after the player has killed Moder to obtain the materials for an Artisan table. The Wheel converts the Flax into Linen Thread. Each piece of flax takes 30 seconds to convert into Linen thread. It has a capacity of 40 Flax and will drop Linen as it is made automatically. You can craft this from 20 fine wood, 10 iron nails, and 5 leather scraps.
The Campfire can be crafted usinga Hammer, you can find those steps here. The Campfire can only be built on the ground, natural rocks or player placed stone structures. To craft you will need 5 stone and 2 wood.
Here we have the Hearth, which is used to make a bigger fire than the Campfire. The hearth must be built on something strong and sturdy such as a stone floor, the ground, or pillars to support it. You can find how to build a Hearth here. With 1/20 fuel, a Hearth will last for 1 hour and 23 minutes. At maximum capacity, a Hearth should burn for 27 hours and 47 minutes. You can craft the Hearth from 15 Stone.
Next, we have the Cauldron, The Cauldron is used to create mead-based recipes, as well as various food items. Requires a fire source underneath in order to craft with, such as a Campfire or Hearth. You can create this with a Hammer and 10 tin.
Lastly. we have the Cooking Station. The cooking station is used to cook raw meat-type ingredients into their cooked form, or if left too long, into coal. In order to cook the meat, you must have a Hearth or Campfire under it. To craft, it requires 2 pieces of wood. You can find how to build and what you can cook here.
This is the Bed in Valheim. If a player sleeps it skips the game clock to the next morning. The crafting stations will continue to work while the player sleeps. You can only sleep if it is afternoon or night, there are no enemies nearby, the bed is sheltered, there is a fire nearby, and if the player is not wet. The bed can be crafted from 8 wood.
The Dragon Bed is an improved bed. It can be built with a hammer and needs to be built within the range of a workbench. To craft, you will need 40 Fine wood, 7 Deer hide, 4 Wolf pelt, 10 Feathers, 15 Iron nails.
Here we will be going over some examples of the different weapons and the type of damage they produce. Stay tuned!
You can find more information on the specific Melee Weapons here.
Melee weapons are items that can increase attack damage. Different types of Melee weapons can have different ranges, attack speed, stamina costs per attack, and secondary attacks.
One-handed clubs: spending more time on one attack for more damage
Swords: stun the enemy
Spears: You can throw the spear which gives a deal of damage when it hits and you can also pick up your spear after the attack.
Polearms: Damage and knockback to nearby enemies.
Knives: Jump forward and attack.
Two-handed Axes: Stab, acquires less stamina than normal attacks.
In the Armor section, there are 4 different types of armor, 6 different sets of armor, and 1 individual Piece.
Troll Armor sets
That is definitely quite a bit of material to take in! After reviewing each and every Tool/Equipment that Valheim contains the information has given me a lot of insight on the best items to try and obtain. This material also gave me a better understanding of the game itself not only the equipment. I hope this tutorial helps all of you Valheim players out there, and I will see you all next time!

Yes! Rusts first batch of Twitch drops was back in November of 2020 and only had three items. Twitch drops made a comeback in January of 2021 when a bunch of large streamers decided to stream Rust causing an insurgence of new players. Now, as of writing this article, Rust is on Round 7 of Twitch drops and have stated that drops will continue for the foreseeable future.
Additionally, you can only expect one campaign per month going forward.
Actually getting drops is pretty easy! To get started, you are going to need to head over to Facepunchs’ drop page here. It should look something like this.
Start by clicking the “Get Started” button. It will scroll you down to where you sign in with your twitch account. Click, “Sign In With Twitch.”
After signing in, you will have to authorize some permissions. If you do not authorize these, you will not be able to get drops.
After successfully signing into Twitch, you will have to sign in to your Steam account. This will link your Twitch and Steam accounts so Facepunch knows what account should be getting the skins.
After successfully signing in to both Twitch and Steam, you should see a new image.
This means you are officially able to earn drops. Now, what type of drops are there?
What Type of Drops are There?
There are two types of drops for rust, Streamer Drops and General Drops. Streamer drops are specific to the streamer that has the drop and can be seen under the “Streamer Drops” section.
To earn these skins, all you have to do is watch the specific streamers stream for 2 or sometimes 4 hours. After that, you should be able to claim it. (NOTE: Muting a stream will void any progress towards drops!)
General Drops are earned by watching any streamer that has Rust drops enabled.
These ones take two hours each to acquire just like the streamer drops.
How do I claim the Skins?
After watching for the correct amount of time, the skins will be added to your twitch inventory. You can access your inventory here. You should see something like this.
Here you can see your progress for the drops and ones you have already claimed. When a drop is ready to be claimed, a white box saying “claim” will appear over the drop, click this and it will be added to your inventory.
If your skin doesnt appear in your steam account right after clicking claim, head over to the drop site and click the “check for missing drops” button.
This should solve any issues with getting your skins.
Rust Twitch drops are an awesome way for Rust content creators, big or small, to get exposure and to have their own in-game item. Because these drops are exclusive, they will only be able to be earned during that specific round making them more unique. Remember, new drops are added each month with the monthly updates so do not miss out!

Welcome back Rust fans! As seen in the title above, we will be going over all Transportation in Rust. If you are a Rust player then you already know that in order to have a reliable vehicle you will need to do some repairs to the vehicle first. In this tutorial, we will go over the different Engine parts, repairs, fuel, and the process you take to fix this vehicle, including the different types of Transportation. If this is the kind of information you’re looking for then stay tuned and follow me along as I take you through this tutorial!
How to obtain vehicles
In Rust, vehicles spawn randomly near roads. You will find these vehicles with a semi-random selection of modules equipped, but each vehicle will need repairs, fuel, and engine parts prior to being able to drive it. If all Mods on the vehicle reach zero health, then the vehicle is considered wrecked and can no longer be used. However, it can be parted out like the scrap helicopter. A new vehicle will spawn once the original wreckage is gone.
Repairing these vehicles can be done in 2 ways. First, a Hammer or Garry’s Mod Tool Gun will get the job done. You can also repair the vehicle with the vehicle lift, which generally requires metal fragments and sometimes wood to repair.
The crafting cost of the Armored Cockpit will require 250 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metal, and 50 wood pieces. The research cost will be 125 scraps, and you will also need a Tier 3 workbench.
The Cockpits crafting cost is 250 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metal, and 100 wood pieces. The research cost is 125 scraps, and you will need a Tier 2 workbench.
Cockpit with Engine has a crafting cost of 250 metal fragments, 8 high-quality metal and 100 wood. Research cost is 125 scraps, and you will need a Tier 2 workbench.
Crafting costs of the Engine will be, 250 metal fragments, and 5 high-quality metal. Research cost will be 125 scrap and you will need a tier 2 workbench.
Fuel Tank crafting costs will be, 400 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metal and 100 wood. Research cost is 125 scrap, and a workbench tier 2 required.
The Passenger Modules crafting cost will require, 500 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metal, and 250 wood. Research cost will be 125 Scrap, and a tier 2 workbench
Rear Seats have a crafting cost of 250 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metals, and 100 wood. Research costs will be 125 scraps and a tier 2 workbench.
The Flatbed has a crafting cost of 250 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metals, and 100 wood. The research cost will be 125 scraps and requires a tier 2 workbench.
The Large Flatbed has a crafting cost of 400 metal fragments, 5 high-quality metal, and 250 wood. The research cost will be 125 scraps and requires a tier 2 workbench.
Storage vehicle Mods crafting cost is 250 metal fragments, five high-quality metal and 250 wood. The research cost is 125 scrap and requires a tier 2 workbench.
One thing to keep in mind is that over time your vehicle’s components will begin to decay over time if left outside. So it is very important to keep everything well maintained. You will also need a Chassis this is the frame from which the rest of your vehicle is built from. There are 3 variations of chassis to choose from: small, medium, and large.
If you’re ready to add your vehicle’s engine parts, here is the overview of what your choices are. In Rust, there are 5 different types of parts and each part has 3 different quality tiers. At least one of each of the 5 parts is required for the engine to function. The lower the quality the higher impact it will have on the overall speed and fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
The lowest quality carburetor can be found in the Vehicle parts toolbox, junk piles, and can be crafted. However, the Low-quality carburetor has been considered in many cases useless without having to get several other parts to help it run. The medium-quality carburetor can be purchased and crafted. However, you will still generally need to fix other parts along with it. High-quality parts can only be purchased and generally give off the best results.
The lowest quality Valve can be found in the junk piles and can be crafted. However, the Low-quality Valve just like the carburetor has been considered in many cases useless without having to get several other parts to help it run. The medium-quality valve can be purchased and crafted. High-quality parts can only be purchased and generally give off the best results.
If you have a Low-quality piston along with a low-quality crankshaft you can almost guarantee that you will have to replace one or both multiple times. The medium-quality piston can be purchased and crafted. High-quality parts can only be purchased and generally give off the best results.
Low-quality spark plugs will give very limited use, spark plugs ignite the fuel/air mixture to move the pistons. So with a low-quality spark plug, you won’t get much life out of your car before needing to replace it again. Medium-quality spark plugs will give you some more security. High-quality spark plugs will give you the best performance and a longer life span before needing to switch it out.
Having a Low-quality crankshaft will not get you anywhere long term, if you’re only needing a temporary fix then a low-quality will work. The medium-quality crankshaft will allow use for a while, however you will need to craft or purchase this mod. The high-quality crankshaft will give the best performance, although just like any other high-quality part you will need to purchase it.
After you have added in your engine parts, you just need to add the fuel. The vehicles run on low-grade fuel, which you can access from the rear. The efficiency will always depend on the quality of the engine parts you have.
The Scrap Transport Helicopter is a flying vehicle that has 2 seats for 1 pilot and 1 passenger. This vehicle can be bought from Bandit Camp for 1250 scrap. The helicopter uses 1800 Low-Grade Fuel, a max of 500 fuel can be loaded into it. It has a max of 1000 HP, and like any other form of transportation in Rust, the quality will weaken over time. If the helicopter is not within a base it will deteriorate within 3 hours, if it on base it will despawn after 6 hours. You can make repairs using a Hammer with Metal Fragments.
The Minicopter is a form of air transportation that supports up to 2 players. Unlike traditional air transportation, the pilot sits behind the passenger. The Minicopter requires 1800 Low-Grade Fuel, which can be placed in the fuel tank behind the driver seat. This transportation can be bought from the helicopter vendor in Bandit Camp for 750 scraps. Just like other vehicles in Rust if not located inside a base, it will deteriorate in 8 hours, and if inside a base it will despawn after 36 hours. You can repair it using a Hammer and Metal fragments.
As seen above, there are many different forms of Transportation in Rust. I hope this tutorial helped you better understand how to take the necessary steps to obtain these items and vehicles. As always I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I did and we hope to see you next time!

In this tutorial, we will be going over the different types of weapons within Rust. Upon viewing, you should now have all the keys and information needed to find When, Where and how you can get these weapons. Keep reading to learn more and start your Rust server with Iceline Hosting today!
Top rated weapons
Now lets get started, in the images and descriptions shown below you will see Rusts top rated weapons.
10. As seen in the image displayed above we have the Thompson submachine gun. If you are looking for a weapon that doesn’t require much yet still gets the job done then this would be a highly recommended weapon of choice for you.
The Thompson is a fully automatic that previously held the standard for the fastest firing gun in the game. Although the Thompson only retains a capacity of 20 rounds, it makes up for it by the low crafting costs. Crafting this weapon will only cost 10-high quality metal, a tier 2 workbench, 100 pieces of wood, a spring, and an SMG body. However the Thompsons lower range and accuracy does make this weapon more suitable for close-ranged encounters.
9. Displayed in the image above we have the MP5A4. If you are in need or looking for a more modernistic submachine gun then this may just be the weapon for you. This weapon is the only military grade weapon in Rust that can be crafted.
The MP5A4 is a more versatile choice within Rust. Shooting pistol bullets and holds 30 rounds of ammunition Although the Thompson has higher damage this weapon has a higher accuracy rate, range, and ammo capacity. Which allows this weapon to be suitable in many situations. The MP5A4 just like the Thompson is easily crafted; requiring 15-High quality metal, 1 SMG body, 2 metal springs, and a tier 3 workbench.
8. Displayed in the image above we have the SPAS-12 Shotgun. Every gamer loves a good shotgun, especially for those moments when you need a weapon that you can use up-close that will do A LOT of damage. The SPAS-12 will definitely do the job since it is a semi-automatic.
This weapon is sadly a rare find, it is only available in Loot Boxes and on occasion you can get this weapon from trading. The reload speed is unfortunately nothing special, on the plus side the SPAS-12 firing rate gives you a major advantage against any enemies who like to get up close and personal.
7. Displayed in the image above here we have the M39 Rifle. If you’re looking for a safe route to take this is a well recommended weapon of choice.
The M39 is not generally meant for close encounters, the best use of the M39 is for long range and medium range fire-fights. Unfortunately this weapon is non-craftable, but there is a significantly noticable difference compared to the craftable semi-auto rifle in the survival game. On the plus side the M39 is considered to be a great silencer and has a zero bullet travel time.
6. Displayed in the image above here we have the LR-300 Assault Rifle. This weapon is definitely one of the most modern and advanced there is,and has many new customizations.
This modern weapon can fire all 5.56 rifle ammo variants, it has a lower recoil and higher spread. This weapon is non-craftable and is very hard to come by, you can obtain this item from crates and drops. So if you happen to loot one off of a kill consider yourself one of the better players.
5. Here we have the Multiple Grenade Launcher. A well known weapon to take out a major group or an adamant enemy, Would definitely recommend when trying to defend an area.
The perk of this weapon is that it’s not just sending out 1 grenade but it does send 6 out. Giving this weapon a very high success rate, this weapon also has a better reload time compared to many other explosive weapons. This weapon does have quite of a learning curve, which requires adjusting your aim more than usual for the best results. Unfortunately this beast is very rare and the ammo is unable to be crafted, So do be conservative with this treasure and its ammo.
4. Here we have the Bolt Action Rifle. This epic weapon is highly used for long distance shots, generally in Rust you will encounter more long actions shots then you will up close. In that case this weapon is perfect for those circumstances.
This rifle can take care of those difficult up close and personal enemies if need be with no problem, if you have good enough aim for that. However this weapon requires 30-high quality metal which might take a while to obtain due to cost, along with 5 metal pipes, and 2 metal springs.
3. Sniping is many players first choice, not having to get up close while at the same time getting a good laugh from bothering the other players. So here I present the L96 Sniper.
This weapon is key for the one-shot, one-kill concept. The reload speed is bolt-action and it’s technique reflects best in long-range. Generally the L96 Sniper is rare to come by, each crate has an 8% chance of containing one. It has a very high accuracy rate and is currently the best sniper in the game. This weapon unfortunately does not come with a scope.
2. As for the Assault Rifle, this weapon is generally one of the most well known and well rounded weapons ever in Rust. The AK is chosen by the majority of players and is very versatile for many different needs.
The Assault Rifle is a high-tier firearm very capable of firing powerful rounds at long range. In order to craft this weapon you’d need 50-high quality metals, 200 pieces of woods, 1 rifle body and 4 metal springs. There isn’t many reasons to not get this weapon, does a generous amount of damage and is also pretty cost efficient.
1. We saved the best for last, here we have the M249. Using this weapon will allow you to wipe out an entire base if you have the resources and the time to do so.
Consider yourself lucky if you get to have this weapon in your possession, this weapon can only be obtained in Helicopter crates, and Bradley crates. With the high damage rating alongside the generous magazine capacity of 100. Therefore leaving the M249 holding the most bullets in-game out of all the other weapons. Making this the top rated weapon in Rust.
As seen in the blog above there are many different weapons to choose from in Rust. I hope this guide will help you find any information you may be looking for in order to make the best weaponry choice. Thank you for tuning in and we will see you in our next blog!

When creating a Modded Rust server, you may find yourself sorting through hundreds of different mods that all do different things for your server. Making sure you have the right plugins for your server is very important for keeping your players around and keeping your server interesting.
We will be going over the Top 10 uMod plugins that we think almost every server owner should have.
Installing uMod on your server is easier than ever with the new panel. All you have to do is go to the “Mods” tab in your panel and install uMod.
Installing plugins is also easier with the new panel. Once you have uMod installed, just go to the “Plugins” tab and search the plugin.
Which Plugins Should My Server Have?
First, you need to decide what type of server you are going to have. Here are a couple examples:
Roleplaying / PVE Server
Vanilla (completely vanilla with administration plugins)
Each type of server uses different types of mods but with this guide we will try to recommend mods that most server will want or need.
Top 10 uMod Plugins
Discord Core (Requires: Discord) With the emergence of Discord, being able to link your Discord server with your Rust server really helps with moderation and incentivizing people to join your Discord. Discord core is also just the backbone for Discord integration, there a ton of other Discord-related plugins for Rust such as ones that create Discord bots to show server stats, chat between the game and Discord, and many more.
Better Chat Better chat allows for more customization with the in-game chat with things like groups to separate users and the ability to change name colors, text colors, and much more.
Arkan (anti-cheat) With any game, cheating can be annoying. However, with Rust, when a lot of the gameplay revolves around PVP, cheating is very prevalent and can ruin a server. Arkan provides another layer of anti-cheat besides the standard EAC that Rust uses.
Player Administration Dealing with console commands to ban/kick players can be annoying, so why not install the player administration mod to make life easier for your staff. Player administration provides a new hud for server admins that allows staff to kick, ban, teleport, kill, and a lot more.
Vanish Vanish is another essential plugin for admins. Vanish allows staff to go invisible to watch over suspicious players. You can also allow staff that are using vanish to unlock all locks to investigate suspicious bases.
Welcomer The welcomer plugin adds a custom welcome message to players that join. This can be used to list off the rules of the server, list commands for the server, or even advertise your Discord or other socials.
Advert Messages The advert messages plugin lets you display important server info at a certain interval. Advertise your Discord, wipe information, server commands, server rules, and anything else you can think of.
Save Announcer Save announcer is another chat-based plugin that can help explain certain instances of server lag. One of the largest factors to server lag is when the server saves and this plugin helps explain certain lag spikes.
Gather Manager This plugin is really only for modded servers as servers listed in community can not have any game-changing plugins which this one is and that’s why it’s number 9. With gather manager, the owner can adjust the amount of resources players gather while playing. This can be used for affecting how much ore is given out, loot from crates, and other similar bootable objects.
Quick Smelt Like gather manager, this one can only be used in modded servers and that’s why it’s number 10. Quick smelt lets the owner change the speed at which things are smelted, how much fuel is used for smelting and changing the output multiplier. This can be helpful for those times where you have way too much ore but not enough time.
Make sure to watch out for future Top 10s to find out about more interesting plugins for your server.
