CARGO SHIP DOCKING
We’ve given both Harbors a fresh coat of paint this month, with a significant amount of visual and gameplay changes. These changes support the new Cargo Ship docking process, which allows the ship to adjust it's course and dock with the harbor.





Each harbor has a new island that can be reached by crossing a rotating bridge, floating containers or a daring set of jumps across cranes. This island becomes a stronghold once the Cargo Ship docks as it becomes sheltered from the rest of the harbor.



The ship will pick the first harbor it passes to dock and will only dock once. Once docked, the cranes in the Harbor will... Read more

EGG HUNT
For the next week, every 24-38 hours in-game hours 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 with an advantage via Egg Vision.

Have fun!


CHICKEN COSTUME
This year we've added a new costume DLC attire, the chicken costume! The chicken costume is a lower body attire w... Read more

A lot more than you think. According to facepunch official 2022 stats. There were two million players and over 800,000 banns. That's just the ones who were caught.

https://rust.facepunch.com/2022

Scripting in rust is the most common, ESP is toggled during raids and monument runs. Most hackers toggle because you're less likely to get caught.

My assumption is, players don't want to lose loot they spent hours acquiring, so they cheat. Which pretty much eliminates the point of rust anyway.

This is also why Rust is so toxic. Cheaters know they can't lose. So they power trip on the fact that they can treat players however they wish and they can get away with it.

Ironically, if someone is cheating in a video game it's most likely compensation for being a neckbeard/incel in real life.

The way these stats were presented and communicated wasn't good.

17+ million sales, and 800k bans in Rust's lifetime, a high % of these bans were not permanent bans, they were temporary suspensions or bans unrelated to cheating.

In 2022, we saw 9 million unique accounts, not 2 million. The two million was a reference to just Facepunch servers.

Many cheat accounts were temporarily banned pending investigation; then, a permanent ban was applied. This counted as two bans in our metrics.

TUTORIAL ISLAND


A common story we hear from new players is that they have seen their friends/Twitch Streamer/YouTuber playing Rust, so they pick up the game and then bounce off it due to how harsh and unforgiving the new player experience can be. This month’s Tutorial Island is our attempt to provide new players with a safe environment to learn the basic controls and mechanics of Rust before being set loose in the main game with other players.



Everyone will be prompted to start the tutorial when they first spawn this month, if you’re a long term player feel free to decline the tutorial and we won’t ask you about it again. Once the player starts the Tutorial, they will be respawned on a dedicated island where an NPC will guide them through the first half hour of gameplay. This ... Read more

LUNAR NEW YEAR
Happy Lunar New Year to everyone! This year, we celebrate the Year of the Dragon.
In Chinese culture, the dragon is a symbol of courage, power, and majesty.
And to help everyone get in the spirit, we have added both new and old Lunar New Year items to the Steam item store.

But don't forget to decorate your bases with trees (symbolizing wealth and good luck) and wearing this year's lucky colours (yellow and red)!





SPEAR
Prim locked? This magnificent Chinese spear is for the fearless primitive warriors of Rust. This spear is a skin replacement for the wooden spear. Crafted with precision and adorned with intricate engravings, this weapon is not just a tool for battle. It's a work of art that tells a story of power and elegance.

BACKPACKS
Backpacks have been one of Rust's most highly requested additions for several years, and what is a survival game without backpacks? This month, we're excited to bring you the small and large backpack, allowing players to carry more loot.



Inventory space has become more scarce as more items have been added to Rust over the years.

Small Backpack


The small handmade backpack provides 12 slots & can be crafted for 50 cloth and five sewing kits at a T1 workbench. It is a default blueprint and will take 30 seconds to craft.

Large Backback

Alistair, it seems the biggest fear in the community right now is the appearance that nothing is happening. Recent updates on the state of anticheat have been just "we're working on it" paraphrased vaguely. No one expects a complete breakdown of how you're combatting it, but give us something. Community morale goes a long way. Give us lists of banned names. Something.

I have given you something.

We used to have a live public feed of banned players for several years. Only a few paid attention, aside from cheaters using it to advertise their cheats by placing the cheat names/links in their player name and treating the list as a high score of how often they got banned.

Many server owners used the feed to ban users with common cheat names and blacklist IPs relating to certain Steam accounts, it wasn't healthy for Rust and legitimate players got caught up.

QOL - Please, please can there be tweaks to the ripe plant death time. Farming is nearly unusable for solo players as a result of the fast plant death times. I can’t plant crops before I get off for the night and collect them in the morning because they die after like 6 hours of being ripe. Also it means if I want to plant something I have to commit to being on long enough to harvest them or they’ll die.

We'll review this, it certainly could be better.
