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)!

Prim locked? This magnificent Chinese spear is for the fearless primitive warriors of Rust.
This spear is a skin replacement for the traditional 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.

To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, we have created a beautiful dragon themed rocket launcher with both unique visuals and sound effects. 

Differing from Western culture, the Dragon in Chinese mythology is auspicious and supreme. Dragons have the great power to control weather elements, but most importantly, soar through the skies - much like your ejecting rockets.
The dragon rocket launcher is a reskin of the traditional rocket launcher.
In addition to this spear and rocket launcher, we’ve added items back from previous Lunar New Years celebrations to the Steam item store. The New Year Gong, the Dragon Door Knocker,  and the Chinese Lantern are all now available with links to all of the items below:
