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 57% cover effectiveness, meaning that bullets aimed at targets behind sandbags have a 57% chance to hit the bags, and a 43% chance to cross over. Sandbags slow down pawns walking over them.

Version history

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

In Beta 19 it received a new, extended description and a retexture, and its cost was reduced from 6 steel to 5.

In 1.1 its crafting recipe was changed to use cloth rather than steel, and its health was nerfed (450 -> 300), along with its cover value (65 --> 57%).
