The Metal Ladder can be used to access higher areas, similar to the  Metal Staircase. The  Tek Ladder is the upgraded version of this structure.

Ladders can be placed on the side of a structure, below a  Hatchframe, or along an area in the natural environment.


  • Ladders can sometimes be buggy and players may have trouble climbing and getting off them. Players can also run into trouble getting off them when used in combination with trapdoors.
  • If you face the back of the ladder you will only be able to demolish it, however, if you face the front you can press the use button and climb up.
  • Can be built on the side of a  Platform Saddle to easily climb on it.
