Frequently Asked Questions

Now that you know how to build a base in Unturned, you may want to find out more about building mode in the game. Read this section to get answers to some of the most common questions related to Unturned.

What Weapons Can You Use in Unturned?

There are two types of weapons in Unturned – Melee and Ranged weapons. Melee weapons are silent, mostly bladed, and used in close combat. Ranged weapons are meant to cause damage from a distance. The list of available weapons includes fists, knives, katanas, machetes, axes, torches, hammers, various shotguns and bows, rifles, and more.

Where Do I Find Metal Sheets in Unturned?

Metal sheets are rare items. They can be used for creating metal windows and doors for your base. They sometimes spawn at the Belfast Airport or construction locations. You can also craft them from metal scraps that can be found at construction locations or obtained from vehicles. To create metal scraps yourself, collect toonies and loonies from cash registers.

What Is the Best Place to Build a Base?

Before building a base, you should consider a couple of things. Firstly, don’t build close to zombies if you don’t want to get yourself killed or your base destroyed. Secondly, make sure you have a consistent food source and water supply. The ideal surface you wish to build on has to be flat. Of course, if you prefer a secret base to avoid raids, the best option is to build it underwater or in the air.

Which Material Should I Use for a Base?

You can build a base from wood or stone. A wooden base is easier to make due to the availability of trees, but a stone base is stronger. You can’t build a metal base, but you can use metal to create doors and windows.

We recommend choosing a greenhouse foundation instead of a regular foundation to do farming to ensure a consistent food supply. You can also mix materials – for example, use wooden pillars, stone walls, and a metal door together.

How Do I Build a Greenhouse Foundation?

The greenhouse foundation grows crops and can hold up to 160 plants. It can be placed in any house. To build it, use four fertilizers and one wooden foundation. The main advantage of a greenhouse foundation is that you get a consistent food supply.

Can I Build a Larger Base Than Described in the Instructions?

You can get creative and build as large a base as you wish, changing any details and adding more features. Our guide only provides basic steps for building a small base. Build more floors with the use of staircases, or expand your base in width by creating a larger foundation.

Can I Make a Mobile Base in Unturned?

Yes, you can build a base on a vehicle it will affect the speed and stability of your vehicle, and when it is moving, other players won’t be allowed in your base. In general, building on top of a vehicle is the same as on the ground – you have to create a foundation, walls, pillars, assemble them, and add any extras you wish.

Get Creative

Hopefully, with the help of our guide, you can now build a base anywhere you like. Make sure to consider important aspects such as food supply and zombies before choosing a location, though. And don’t forget to craft an oxygenator before creating a base underwater or in the sky.
