How much weight can metal studs support?

The amount of weight a metal stud can support will depend on its size. For example, an 8-foot, 3.5-inch metal stud may be able to support over 2,000 pounds while a 16-foot stud of the same width may only be able to support 400 pounds. The taller a metal stud is, the less weight it will be able to support.
