Raft: How to Destroy Buildings, Floors, Walls & Furniture


GamingRaft: How to Destroy Buildings, Floors, Walls & Furniture

Creating the perfect Raft can be a time-consuming and tedious task. You need to try and maximise space, whilst also keeping it fully functional. Unfortunately sharks are going to constantly come and break off parts of the Raft too.

In this quick guide, we’re going to show you how you can delete and demolish parts of your Raft. Whether they be walls, furniture, foundations or pretty much anything else!

This guide is for the main release of Raft, which was released on Steam recently. We have some more Raft Guides available on our site!

Demolish Structures

To start, you will need to craft an axe. Open the crafting menu by pressing I or TAB. Under the Tools section, you can craft an axe for 8 Wooden Planks, 2 pieces of Scrap and 4 Rope.

Wooden Planks and Scrap can be collected from the Ocean with your hook. Whereas Rope can be crafted for 2 Leaves per 1 Rope. Once you have the axe, it will either show up inside your inventory or on your hot-bar.

With the Axe equipped, simply hold Left Click to swing at a structure. It will destroy and demolish pretty much everything in a single hit. Occasionally, you will get some of the resources returned to you upon demolishing something.
