The Rope Ladder can be used to access higher areas. It works exactly like the Wooden Ladder Wooden Ladder, however, it can also be retracted and extended.

Ladders can be placed on the side of a structure, below a hatchframe, or along an area in the natural environment.


Rope Ladders are placed like normal ladders. When standing at the top of the ladder, players can hold E and select "Hold to Retract Ladder" in the radial menu to retract it. The rope ladder will then be rolled up and can't be used for climbing up or down.

Players can extend a retracted ladder by pressing E and selecting "Hold to Extend Ladder".


  • Rope Ladders have significantly less health points than Wooden Ladders.
