Tugboat

The Tugboat is the biggest boat you can drive in Rust. Although it only seats one player, by default, many more players are able to stand on the boat without getting pushed off, like the motor rowboat or the RHIB. Unlike other boats, the Tug allows players to get authorized to build, like a tool cupboard, at the steering wheel. It includes 3 doorways, where an authorized user will be able to put doors and locks, two of which are two entrances to the bridge, and the third being the entrance to the downstairs storage room. Downstairs you will also be able to place different items like bags, boxes, furnaces, lockers, and workbenches. Upon reaching zero hitpoints, the tug will slowly sink to the sea floor where it will remain for two hours before despawning. During this time any deployed doors will remain functional, but can still be destroyed in order to gain access to any loot within. Two tugboats will spawn in each harbor on the map.

It costs only 12 torpedos to sink tugboat which is just 120gp and 4 pipes. Get blueprint by buying 2 torpedos for 75 scrap in fishing village.

You can travel up to about 12 un-labeled tiles on the map before the Tugboat is deleted entirely, deleting and killing everything on it.

Since people will start sinking the tugboats with submarines torpedo damage on doors should be added.
Armored Door 125 torpedoes to break. Sheet Metal Door 35 torpedoes to break Wood Door 6 torpedoes to break

You can also sink a tugboat with 12 High Velocity Rockets. Thats useful if you are in a tugboat and chasing another tugboat, you can shoot the HV Rockets even solo and moving if you use the alto walk key and jump from the driving. The tugboat will spin eventually like the normal boats do too, but you have plant of time to shoot the rockets.

You can make an airlock to the back door using 2 workbenchs or 2 vending machines for example.

Gladast. 6 pts. 7 months ago

It is important to be aware of the fact that when sinking Tugboats, after removing the front door, you may not be able to enter it properly because the entrance is tilted to the side, making you unable to fit inside the door.
