With the team at Facepunch Studios busy working away on new content and gameplay changes for its flagship survival game, there’s always – well, often – news to share on what’s headed Rust’s way. Rust YouTuber Shadowfrax has just shared the latest details on what the devs have been cooking up, and it includes a key change for supply drops.
In the game’s staging – that is, live testing – branch, there are some updates to how visible supply drops are, as Shadowfrax explains in the clip below. “Many supply drops delivered between the in-game hours of 8pm and 7am will now have a big, rotating light on top and white lights on the bottom,” he notes – and there’s some footage giving you a good idea of what this’ll look like in practice to see.
These lights will stay switched on for “a while” after a supply drop hits the ground to help players locate it in areas with dense foliage – though it’s worth noting the siren light will only be visible once you’re within a certain distance of the box o’ goodies.
