Often called “Sperm Ket” because of the remnants of its sign, Abandoned Supermarket is a tier-one monument with decent loot spawns. This includes at least one Military Crate (with the potential for many more), a green card, multiple barrels, and plenty of food. It even has a Recycler around the back, though making use of it can often prove deadly.
Strategy and Meta
Although Abandoned Supermarket has minimal tactical loot, it is incredibly valuable because of the amount of food that spawns. It generally has enough food to feed a team of at least two for quite some time. Food and hydration tend to be undervalued in the Rust community, and so taking advantage of this spawn can be a very strategic move. Being well-fed and hydrated will heal you over time, increase your chances of standing up, and increase your comfort.
If you find yourself in a fight at the Supermarket, the best thing to do is to hold the roof. There are only two ways to get up to it — via the ladder or by using a Recycler jump — and so you can turn those spots into kill spots against those trying to contest the high ground. To combat someone using this strategy against you while in a group, you can flank the roof by having one member use the ladder while the other uses the jump. If you are alone and faced with the same obstacle, it is best to use the Recycler jump, since the ladder will block your ability to shoot, making you an easy target.
