How to use the Toolbelt in Stranded Deep

Stranded Deep is a survival game in which players take the role of a plane crash survivor. As players explore the game’s vast open world and struggle for survival, they need to craft a number of items to fight against the odds. One of the items players can craft in the game is the toolbelt. Here is all you need to know about the toolbelt in Stranded Deep.

The toolbelt is not a piece of equipment that is not necessary for survival, however, it can make things quite easy for the players. The toolbelt allows players to access their tools using hotkeys. However, there’s a catch. The toolbelt occupies some space in your inventory so it is not quite efficient considering that it’s merely for convenience.

How to craft the Toolbelt

Before you can use the Toolbelt, you need to craft it. The toolbelt has several levels and with each level the number of items you can assign to it increases. At level 1 the toolbelt can be used to assign one tool and you can assign up to four tools at level 4. Here are the materials needed for each level.

  • Level 1 – 1 Lashing
  • Level 2 – 1 Lashing, 1 Cloth
  • Level 3 – 1 Cloth, 1 Rawhide
  • Level 4 – 2 Leather
