Satellite Dish – Rust Monument Guide

In this guide, we will be exploring the Satellite Dish monument. This guide contains the general strategy and meta for the monument, a map with Crate spawn locations, and callouts so you can more easily navigate the monument.

For info on how to read the map and some more general information about the guide, please refer to the Map Key in the Main Guide.

The Satellite Dish is a fantastic Tier-2 monument. It contains a handful of crates, but what really makes it shine is its ease of access, which makes loot accessible and gives you plenty of tactical options during a fight. This is due to its very open layout, which consists of 4 raised platforms. Each one has some loot, including at least one crate. Other key areas in this monument include the Road leading into the monument and a Green Card room.

There are a few key things to remember for Satellite Dish. First of all, you should never forget that this monument is very open. This means that someone atop the platforms can easily get sightlines on opponents, and will almost certainly have the height advantage. At the same time, however, it means that attackers can attack from any angle, necessitating constant vigilance in order to prevent being flanked.

Each dish, itself, also has some interesting, dynamic potential. The Broken satellite closer to the Recycler can be climbed on top, for example, making it a good place to camp out. Whereas the other two satellite dishes can be climbed atop in order to hide and get a few free kills.
