Small water catchers can now be placed on construction but cannot be built over (similar behavior as large furnace) The things listed above are a minor fraction of the overall work that the team is doing.
As with many large projects, development is ongoing and takes longer than we may otherwise wish. Thankfully, it does appear as though December is going to be one of the largest updates to Rust in the history of the game.
Added “near” network visibility radius that is processed immediately (fixes entities popping in too close when moving very fast) Click on the button columns to attach a primary and secondary key to hover loot.
Many players like to use an easily accessible button for hover loot, such as mouse4. Whether it be a player, a crate, or your tool cabinet, you can quickly transfer items to your inventory by mousing over them.
Even though Rust has been out for over six years, many players are still not aware of the hover loot option. Now you know how to loot fast in Rust, so you have no excuse to get caught in an open field taking your opponent’s items.
Having an edge that helps you survive the harsh world of RUST is the name of the game. In today’s video, we’re looking at some tips and tricks that will help you in your first few hundred hours playing RUST.
This way, you can progress quicker and learn the mechanics of the game easier without getting killed too many times. While you might think that playing on an official Face punch server would be the best option, these servers tend to be highly populated with much more experienced players, have no group size limit, and tend to have a slightly higher chance of you running into hackers.
It’s usually best to look through a community server or a modded server with active staff who will monitor the players and ban hackers, cheaters or anyone abusing the group size limit, giving you a more fair chance. If you are finding it a little slow to progress, then you can try moving on to a 2x server instead for a slightly sped up Rust experience.
You can choose any specific weapon on many of these servers or you might spawn with all of them, allowing you to practice with whichever you want. It’s probably best to focus on the lower tier weapons to begin with and move up as you progress.
You can check the tier of the weapons from the crafting menu if you aren’t sure, or do a quick Google search. Plus, even if you do die and lose a weapon, it’s good experience for PVP on a real server.
And dying whilst building your first base can be really frustrating, often leading you to quit for the wipe. I’d recommend spending some time on a creative or sandbox server to practice building a default starter base that you can use every wipe, ensuring that you get it down quickly.
Regardless of how many hours you have, where you build your starter or main base can be the difference between a wonderful wipe or a awful one. You’ll also want to build fairly close to a road and rad town so you can get scrap and components.
But be careful how close, as they tend to be a hot spot for other players looking to PVP and get loot. Over farming is one of the main reasons that people die early and quit, because they keep losing all of their hard-earned materials and items.
One of the most annoying parts of Rust is not only dying, but having to wait a few minutes before being able to respawn in your sleeping bag. You can check out my other tips and tricks videos to see just how close to each other bags can be before they start to share a respawn timer.
We also want to make use of this on a fresh wipe when running from your initial spawn point to where you want to build. If you die, you can respawn at one of these bags which is not only away from the populated spawn area, but it’s also a little closer to where you want to build in the end.
This means you can farm a node or tree in front of you whilst looking behind and to the side. Not as many people tend to farm scrap on the ocean, especially in the beginning of the wipe, so there’s more potential for finding more loot and a lower chance of dying.
Whilst boats do have a low grade fuel cost to use, you can usually cover this with breaking red barrels that you farm on the rafts that you find. If you find diving gear whilst farming, you can use these as well to collect the underwater crates which are recognizable by a floating bottle on the surface of the water.
The main resources that you want are wood, metal, stone, sulfur, cloth and animal products like fat to make low grade. Cloth or hemp, is primarily found in the green areas of the map as well, but of course there're other ways of obtaining it in the desert or mountains, such as with the cactus or recycling, but it’s a little more difficult.
If you middle mouse button and drag, this will split a stack in half. I’ve found the best thing to do is go out and start hammering loot locations, collect as much stuff as you can and bring it back.
Note: Airdrops don’t make this list due to how hard they are to get. Believe it or not, you can find anything from low grade fuel to high quality metal in these containers.
Barrels are the bread and butter of Rust, you’ll have to destroy quite a few before you become established on your chosen server. They’re found in abundance around roads and monuments, they spawn frequently and it won’t take you long to find some.
You’d be surprised how many resources you’ll obtain by doing this, many floor items are completely ignored. You can find laptops, CCTV cameras, tools, items to recycle for high quality metal etc.
This container seems to give tools, weapons and items like the binoculars much more than any previous entry. The green military crate is one of those, giving the player lucky enough to find it some amazing loot.
Maybe it’s just me being a noob but I’ve only managed to find one military green crate in my near 100-hour playtime, so they are quite rare. In general, if you’re going out geared with the intention of coming back with a ton of loot, monuments are the place for you.
Some monuments also have green military crates so if you’re persistent, you can stock up on rifles if you visit them often. Then you get the launch site, which is guarded by a tank for good reason, there you can find the elite loot crates.

Every item that you pick up or craft will be placed in the slots in your inventory.
It is now safe to throw away your rock by dragging it out of your inventory space and it will drop to the floor. Now that you have these basic tools you can begin to gather resources quicker and build up a base.
This guide will go over the basic natural resources: Wood, Stone, Metal Fragments, High Quality Metal, Sulfur, Cloth. Wood is gathered from trees and fallen logs around the world, it is the resource you will use for building your first base and also to fuel your campfires and furnaces.
They are also used for crafting things such as Furnaces, Concrete Barricades, Tools, High External Stone Walls. From your inventory, select the “Crafting” tab at the top of the screen.
They will often hunt players at night, so keeping a low amount of light will help you evade attack. Avoid becoming known as a bandit, or else the friendly player bases may reject you when you need them most.
Find a good, safe place to build your home. You may now begin to add pillars, walls, windows, and stairs in the same manner.
The exact nature of every wooden item would be too extensive for this guide, but all the information you need can be found by clicking the item's name in the crafting tab and reading the text below it. Gradually chopping down buildings with the hatchet is possible, although it takes a long time.
First, craft a sleeping bag and place it on the ground like a campfire. Second, craft a couple of storage crates and place them around your house.
Be sure to store your crates away from the walls, so that bandits can't reach in and steal your things from outside. The clicking noise of a Geiger Counter can be heard in these areas.
Standing in irradiated causes your rads to go up (check underneath your food bar). If you gain 500 rads, you will start taking damage every few seconds.
Standing in clean areas, or eating food (especially 'Small Rations') gradually decreases the amount of rads you have. Eventually, you will accumulate the resources needed to craft better items.
