Season's Beatings!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

16 December 2021
From everyone at Facepunch, we'd all like to wish you a Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone! 

The Christmas Event is once again live! If you haven't been around for this before, here's what you can expect:

Every once in a while you will hear the sound of jingle bells. Run outside and look for a gift! Two gifts are spawned per player, in a radius of about 40m from where you are standing. Run up and bash it open to receive your Christmas presents. They come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. If you have enough small presents stashed, you can "trade up" to a medium or large. The contents of each present vary, but you'll find a mix of resources, weapons, and candy. 

Once again, you will be able to find Santa hats and reindeer antlers, both of which can be worn and provide a decent amount of protection. There’s also a lickable candy cane club, and two types of stockings. If you hang a stocking inside your base when the jingle bells ring the stocking will fill up with loot. The larger stocking has a higher chance for better items and both last around 5-10 refills.
The Christmas event ends on January 6th @ 19:00GMT

Have fun!

 Snowman hat

Get in the festive Rustmas spirit with the new Snowman hat, now available from the Rust item store!

Pattern Boomer Firework

Advent calendar

The advent calendar is a new craftable deployable available to everyone during the Christmas event. 
Once placed you can claim an in-game surprise once every in-real-life day.
We have brought some items from previous years, now purchasable from the Rust Item Store.

The festive garland pack now includes a double door garland. If you've already purchased this pack you'll now be able to craft this item. 

I'm excited to announce Rust's first Rustmas base decorating competition!

We're looking for the best festive base Rust has ever seen! 

The Christmas content update is now live and will stay in game until January 6th, 2022.
I know a few of you are going to go ham on this and I couldn't be happier!  Hoping this Rustmas will be the best one yet. Go big or go home, right?
