The Metal Stairs is an inclined ramp that can be used to overcome heights. A Metal Stairs is 1 foundation wide, 1 foundation long and 1 wall tall.


  • It's often easier to build a stairs from the top down, as the excess stairs will usually extend through the floor. Building it from the bottom up will cause it to protrude over the surface you're trying to connect it to.

  • Can be used as windows or blinders for whoever steers the raft. Most useful for tall rafts. Pros: grants protection against most dinos and projectiles. Cons: getting too close to the stairs can allow dinos to target you or your tames (example: Dodo).
