Raid cams, a movie director plays Rust, base love, and more.
Welcome
Fahrenheit's fan art sits on top of this newly minted blog post. Let's face it, if you've looked back on a fight, one where you've only had a primitive weapon and were facing someone with a gun, this is how you remembered it. You also probably died, but at least you did in the heat of battle and not after clipping yourself against a cactus. That wouldn't make for good art. Unless... no, it sucks.
Salvaged Axe

Over on reddit, Ragejay showed off his handmade Salvaged Axe. This is quite the thing.

I wonder how many real world weapons we're responsible for?

Vertiigo Raid Cam

It's been a while since we covered a raid cam, and Vertiigo has popped a short series of them up on his channel. Handy! It's a raid by a large clan on what Vert suggests is one of the best bases he's ever seen. It is an absolute fortress that keeps the raiders at bay quite well, until the raiding clan's plan is made clear. This isn't about loot.

Also, the bit at 3:34 is absolutely great. I think I'd love to see a cam filmed from the perspective of people not taking part.

It turns out Vert was right. This was the start of a rivalry:

So many rockets died for our entertainment.

Base Build

As I was scrolling and scrolling and scrolling (and scrolling) through my vast list of Youtubers, I spotted someone new. To me at least. This is Modgey, and he's been working on a new starter base design. He's come up with something to last the first day after a wipe, which is always the most important base for me. What do you think?

I love the little outro scene, too. Subbed!

Rust Versus A Hollywood Director

Via Glixel: Free Fire, High Rise, and Kill List director Ben Wheatley is a Rust fan. He plays with his son, which makes it more emotional. But he also plays other games, which makes us more emotional.

Extremely stressful. I play it with my son sometimes, and there was a moment that was just like The Road, where the two of us were escaping, running over this hill, and these people were chasing us and I was was being killed and I was shouting "No, keep going!" as he was running away. And then he got killed with a spear and I was like, "No!" It was almost like a real memory. It was horrible.

The man who came up with the ending of Kill List just called our game 'horrible'.

Aces Of Bases

Now we've seen bases take the full brunt of every rocket ever made, we need to be a bit nicer to them. That's what MikeTheVike does when he free cams the bases on his server. Take a look.

That was very relaxing. And, hey, DeanCentral has started a base series. It's mostly just gliding about the work on a server, rather than poking about inside them, but still nice to watch.

Good work.

Xtab's Skin Round-Up

According to my SEO Clickbait course, Xtab has delved into the skin world and what happened next will make you cry into a bucket of kittens. Or he made a list of what he likes this week. It's one of the two.

Get In Touch

Think you're working on something awesome? Tell me all about it. Share your base designs, show off a game-mode from your server, or have you done a cool thing with Code Locks and Vending Machines?

There's a dedicated forum post, or you can fish for upvotes in the Subreddit. I also shuffle around the the Steam Community, so feel free to show me to things from there. You can follow and respond to Rust on Twitter, and I'm on there as well.

I can't respond to everything, but I read every comment and take it all in.

And Finally...

Here's how Bizzlesnaff made his cosy Hobbit nook.

There's other stuff in there, but I only came for the Shire. Just like Saruman. Aha!
