Community Update 147

Rust movie mash-ups, Nerfed pump-action shotguns (not in that way), mythbusting, and more.

8 August 2017
Welcome

After going rogue last week (No! I do not mean 'rouge', spell-checker. Stop asking!), all is well again. Here we are with the header image, casually yoinked from Valkix/TDM on Steam. It's always fun to break up the blog pages with different art styles, and this is a very cartoonish view of Rust. I had to crop it slightly, so here's the full version for you all. Good work, Valkix!

BTW, there probably won't be an update next week. I'll be on something called a 'holiday'.

Mythbusters

Are there any thoughts and or feelings you might have about things you can do in Rust, but haven't been bothered to test? There's no need to bother. Just drop a comment on a Rust Academy's Mythbuster video and they might try it out for you. I'm just going to link to the latest and let you explore backwards from there. That way you can feel like you've achieved something today.

Everyone knows candles survive underwater in the real world, yeah? That's basic flameology.

The Hangover

This is really fun. PepperTheRed was raided while he was offline and attempted to reconstruct what went down.

I love seeing new takes on Rust videos. More please!

Art

Time for some more art. MrGoose0 worked up a couple of classic movie and Rust mash-ups. Though sadly neither are Robocop.

Pughie looked into the plight of solo players.

Bucket made this Rust-inspired Youtube banner for a player called 'End Boss'.

That was art, alright. I'd recognise it anywhere.

Rust Nerf Shotgun

Welcome to perhaps the most idiosyncratic video I've featured on this blog for quite a while. In it, Nerf gun retooler WalcomS7 has crafted the in-game pump action shottie out of plastic guns and other things. He seems rather excited about it. But then CODY17 from PitchDank's channel drops in with the occasional burst of commentary. So, you have this guy's singular passion mixed with CODY17's ranting about monkey bones.

It leaves welts. Ouch!

Xtab's Skin Picks

You know, I've just realised what an ugly phrase "Xtab's Skin Picks" is. It sounds like a disease, despite being a delightful dip into the Rust item skin community. Here's itemiser Xtab's latest look.

Mmmmm. Skin.

And Finally...

How does Brunt Force Trauma get these scoops?

What did he eat up there?

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.
