Rope is a Refined Item crafted with 3 Cut Grass. A Science Machine is required to unlock the recipe. Rope can be used to craft various Tools, Survival items, and Weapons. It can also be used to refuel a Fire Pit by 90 seconds and a Campfire 45 seconds.
Because a stack of Rope can be made from 60 Cut Grass, it is more space-efficient to store any surplus Cut Grass as Rope. It should be noted, however, that Rope can not be converted back to Cut Grass.
The Reign of Giants DLC adds several crafting recipes that require Rope. It also adds the ability to receive Rope from Tumbleweeds.
In the Shipwrecked DLC, Rope can also be acquired by Hammering Crates.
In the Hamlet DLC, Rope can also be acquired by Hammering A Smashing Pot. Both kinds of Hanging Vines drop one, too.
- In the old research system, the research cost of a Rope was 30.
- In older versions of the game, rope used to fuel fires with as much energy as boards would (360/180 seconds). However, that was fixed to give the same amount as 3 cut grass.
