Boat Vendor Update

Long gone are the days of having to roam the shores of the Rust island in hopes of finding a seaworthy vessel. You'll now be able to acquire a Rowboat or a RHIB at one of the three new fishing villages we've added to the game. Here's the run down:

  • You'll now find 3 Fishing villages around the map varying in size.

  • Boats are no longer procedurally spawned along the beach and ocean and instead can be purchased from the Boat vendor found at the Fishing villages, 250 for rowboat / 400 for RHIB.

  • Fishing villages are safe zones and hostile action will result in a swift death.

  • If you're unable to afford a rowboat, you can opt to purchase the blueprint for a Kayak & paddle which you can then craft yourself any time.

  • You can also purchase each piece of scuba gear at the fishing village

Moving forward, you can expect to see some more NPC Villages added to the game (stables anyone?) as well as seeing the impact of these micro monuments have in the game increasing. We're working on a mission system which will allow players to acquire items and blueprints from means other than simply farming scrap, and you'll likely find the mission providers here first.

Sunburn DLC

Surfs Up

The Sunburn DLC is our second premium DLC for Rust, including 15 new summer themed items for you to enjoy with your team. Gear up in some swimwear, take to the seas, relax by the pool, get into a water fight and take some photos to remember the summer!



Just like the Instruments DLC everything included in this pack (except for the custom underwear) can be used by anyone, even if they haven't purchased the DLC. Make sure to craft some tubes for your friends!


Custom Underwear



We've added the ability for you to change your underwear as part of this update so you can swap out those grungy undies with some bright summer styles. You'll notice a new icon next to your player avatar in the Inventory where you can select from the available options. This works a little differently from normal items as it's not something you have to equip or craft, and your choice of underwear will be remembered when you die.

There are 4 different styles to choose from with Male and Female versions of each.


Boogie Board and Inner Tube




The Boogie Board and Inner Tube are two new deployable vehicles that let you take to the ocean in style. Pop one down in any body of water and you can paddle around to your heart's content.

The Inner Tube is a bit slower but can turn easily, while the Boogie Board is built for speed but can't turn as well. You can also equip items while on an Inner Tube, so feel free to shoot your team mates with a water gun while catching some waves. The Boogie Board has 7 visual styles while the Inner Tube has 8 styles.


Paddling Pool



Once filled up, the Paddling Pool acts as a water source for your Boogie Board and Inner Tubes. Includes 5 different styles.


Above Ground Pool



The Above Ground Pool is a massive pool with plenty of space for aquatic activities. As well as including a large pool, it also includes a deck area where you can deploy other props like chairs, instruments and turrets.



Beach Towel



The Beach Towel is a new item that acts as a respawn point. While it works really well on the beach and by the pool, it will work anywhere you can use a Sleeping Bag. Comes in 8 styles so you can stand out on the beach.


Beach Recliner, Parasol and Table





This furniture set includes three separate props to style your above ground pool. The Recliner is a large chair where you can kick back and relax, the Parasol is a large umbrella that reduces the temperature for any players underneath it, and the Table is a small surface that goes well with the rest of the furniture. The Parasol and Recliner have 8 different colour schemes to pick from.


Sunglasses



Shield your eyes from the hot sun with the new equippable Sunglasses. Provides no protection, but they look really cool. Includes 9 different styles so you can really express yourself.


Instant Camera



Snap photos of your summer fun with the Ontara Pro instant camera. You can write messages onto the photos and share them with others like notes. Each camera can take up to 30 photos.

The camera has a zoom feature which can be adjusted by dragging with the right mouse button pressed. It can also switch between infinite, auto, or manual focus using the reload button. Manual focus can be adjusted with shift+right mouse drag.


Photo Frames




You can place your photos into these new deployable photo frames to show them off to the world. Hold E on them to access its inventory and swap the photos out. You can also paint over the frame like signs!


Water Guns





Water fights - to the death!

Grab a water gun, fill it up from a water source and go on a splashing spree!

Soak your mates or enemies (as long as they have a water gun equipped, too) enough and they'll start to take water damage.

The water pistol has a low output and range, but doesn't require pumping. The larger water gun has increased range and output but will need pumping to maintain its extended range. The large gun comes in 5 colours for easy friend and foe identification.

Companion App Update

Rust+, the official companion app for Rust, is out now! Stay connected to the game so you never miss an important moment again. Coordinate with your team, receive alerts when you’re being raided, remotely set off traps, and more!

Pair with your Servers

Pair with your favorite Rust servers to receive real-time updates for the things that matter the most: player counts, current game time, online teammates, and more. You’ll also get (optional) push notifications whenever one of your teammates joins the game.

Explore the Map

View the full server map to find points of interest, see where your teammates are and check on vending machines. You can also track ongoing events like the attack helicopter and cargo ship.

Keep up with your Team

Communicate with your team from anywhere to just catch up or plan for your next raid. Messages are visible in both the app and the in-game team chat so you can seamlessly switch between the two.

Control your in-game Devices

Connect Smart Switches and Smart Alarms to your in-game electrical contraptions and pair them with Rust+ to control them remotely at any time. Smart Switches let you turn things on or off, and Smart Alarms send customizable push notification alerts when an electrical signal is detected.

Rust Vehicles Public Testing

Rust will soon be getting modular cars that players can modify and drive around. With this being a major new feature, we're releasing it initially in a separate version of the game, which is available to try right now.

Our aim with this new beta branch is to allow for plenty of testing not just in terms of fixing bugs, but also in adjusting how the new vehicles fit into the game as a whole. Various aspects may potentially still change such as how they're acquired and used, or balance to their costs and statistics. Please be aware that right now there will be bugs and missing features in this branch.

If you're trying out the vehicles branch, we'd like to get your bug reports, plus any suggestions for changes you think are needed relating to modular cars. The end goal is to have modular cars fit well into the game as something where the value is equal to the time and energy required to use them.

Details of how to access the branch, what to expect and where to give feedback can be found on the Blog Page[rust.facepunch.com]

Rust Server Wipe

It's that time again folks!

After completing the wipe we have reviewed the population of the server and have decided to continue using the current map available."

Our next wipe will most likely occur sometime toward the end of summer in the months of Jul-Aug.

I want to thank everyone who joined during our last phase and look forward to new communities members in the next phase!

Now let's get to surviving!

 

Happy Easter!

For the next week, once every in-game day an easter egg hunt will begin. You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many eggs as you can. The top 3 players are given special eggs as a reward. These eggs can be cracked open for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249!

If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The painted eggs you collect can be upgraded to Bronze eggs once you collect 10. If you collect 10 bronze eggs then you can upgrade to a silver egg, eventually all the way to gold!

There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Easter Basket will allow instant pickup of eggs and the Bunny Onesie and Ears will provide you an advantage via Egg Vision.

This year we've added two new Rustigé Eggs, each has a new monument with their own associated rust theme.

We've also added a new Nest Hat which functions as a replacement for the wolf headdress. Yes, the eyes are googly.

Have fun!
