How to Make Rust in Little Alchemy 2

Just like how every animal can get sick from diseases, metals also face something very similar. That is, metals get rust which is formed by the combination of iron and oxygen. Moreover, we can say metals get a disease when exposed to air for a long time.

In conclusion, the air is harmful to metals. However, there is also a little part of the water in the rusting process. Further, the combination of water and air can rust any iron mass. And if left untreated, rust can infect the entire body of iron.

Likewise, iron and its alloys such as steel all face rusting which is also known as corrosion. Here, air can mean different elements such as oxygen and chloride. While oxygen forms visible rusting, irons can be in places where there is no oxygen.

For instance, rebar used in concrete pillars can’t react with oxygen. Hence, they react with chloride and form green rust. Likewise, rust can be devastating as it can slowly corrode metals used in infrastructures and destroy them entirely.

Hence today, our job is to create rust and find a solution for it. Certainly, science has helped a lot, and here are countless ways to prevent rusting. But, it’s more interesting doing everything yourself, isn’t it?

Well, we will start off by creating the Rust element in Little Alchemy 2. Whereas, you can take a look at the below list to prepare just in case rust causes any destruction.

Walkthrough for Rust in Little Alchemy 2

Simply Create Rust

Above all, Rust is one of the easiest elements to acquire in Little Alchemy 2. Nevertheless, it’s as simple as how irons easily corrode in the real world. In fact, all we need to do is combine Metal with Air to obtain Rust.

To clarify, follow the below steps to obtain the Rust element:

  • Earth + Fire = Lava
  • Lava + Air = Stone
  • Stone + Fire = Metal
  • Metal + Air = Rust

Wooh! Wasn’t it as simple as I told you it would be? But, caution as rust can be harmful to the metals near you. Most importantly, we don’t want any damage to happen when we are working to find a solution, right?

Alternative Ways To Obtain Rust

Similarly, to find a solution for a problem, the best thing we can do is find the root cause. That is, we can do so by finding the ways the problem was created. Hence, how about we note down all the ways we can obtain Rust in Little Alchemy 2?

Nonetheless, Oxygen is Air itself so you can combine it with Metal to obtain Rust as follows:

  • Metal + Oxygen = Rust

On the other hand, we already talked about the alloys of iron getting rusted. Therefore, you can also use Steel in the same way we used Metal to obtain Rust.

In short, you can obtain Rust by using Steel as shown below:

  • Steel + Air = Rust
  • Steel + Oxygen = Rust

Congrats! You have successfully found all the ways the metals could get rusted. Meanwhile, you have also proven alchemy skills. So, it’s best we keep going!
