Sandbags can be placed to cover your colonists from gunfire, but not melee attacks, thrown projectiles, or explosions. Sandbags take damage from bullets and explosions. Raiders can also use sandbags as cover, so place them in a way so enemy units cannot take advantage of them.

Sandbags provide 55% cover effectiveness, meaning that bullets aimed at targets behind sandbags have a 55% chance to hit the bags, and a 45% chance to cross over. Sandbags slow down pawns walking over them.

Sandbags require Building Material (steel, wood, plasteel, etc.) 5 Stuff (Leather/Fabric) and 180 ticks (3 secs) to build.

Material Table

As Barricades and Sandbags are largely interchangeable except for their aesthetics and material properties, both are included in the following table for convenience.

Note that cover effectiveness is 55% regardless of material.

    Version history

    In earlier versions (Alpha 16/17?) it used to have 70% cover rating.

    • Beta 19 - received a new, extended description and a retexture, and its cost was reduced from 6 steel to 5.
    • 1.1 - crafting recipe was changed to use textiles rather than steel, and its health was nerfed (450 -> 300), along with its cover value (65 -> 57%).
    • 1.3.3066 - fill percent (i.e. cover) reduced from 57% to 55%.
