The Busting Tool is quite important in Grounded, as it allows you to break down large rocks that might be blocking your way, and harvest important resources you will need to progress in the game.

How to get a Busting Tool

To get a Busting Tool, you will need to build a Pebblet Hammer. This is the first Busting Tool that you can get in the game, so you will need it as soon as possible. To make a Pebblet Hammer, you will need the following resources:

  • Sprig x 3
  • Pebblet x 4
  • Woven Fiber x 1


To get the sprigs, you can collect them off the ground as you explore. These look like medium size, single-stemmed plants with small leaves at the top.


Pebblets are tiny stones that you can find on the ground, all over the map. They are quick and easy to gather up, as they can be found almost anywhere. If you are struggling to find them, you can always find large groups near big stones and boulders.

Woven Fiber

To makeĀ Woven Fiber, you will need to analyze Plant Fiber found on the ground in the Analyzer. This will then unlock the Woven Fiber recipe, and you can craft it in the Materials tab of the Crafting menu.

When you have all the resources you need, open up your Crafting menu, go to the Tools section, and you will be able to make the Pebblet Hammer. You don’t need a crafting bench for this recipe and build one anywhere.
