Sweeping up.

As with any game in Early Access, bugs and glitches are to be expected. Enshrouded is no exception; one such bug involves the mysterious disappearance of the crafting option. Here we’ll explain how to craft a Rake, and how to fix the bug where the crafting recipe vanishes.

Crafting a Rake in Enshrouded

The Rake is an essential tool in Enshrouded, particularly for players looking to till soil. Crafting it requires a simple visit to the Workbench and combining specific ingredients. The required materials are:

  • 6 x Wood Logs: These are basic resources in the game, commonly found in forested areas.
  • 2 x String: Usually obtained from various crafting activities or looting.
  • 2 x Stone: Collected from mining or scavenging around rocky terrains.

Combining these items at the Workbench will yield a the tool with a Stamina cost of 2 and a Max Durability of 500. The tool’s primary function is to flatten the ground, which is vital for effective farming.

  6. Return to Main Menu: Exit to the main menu.
  7. Switch Back to Regular Character: Select your original character.
  8. Retrieve the Rake: Enter the world again, and you’ll find the Rake in the Chest.
