Rust Console Patch 1.52 Is Live, Includes Improved Scientist AI & Exploit Fixes

Many quality-of-life changes and bug fixes in this patch make their way into the game. From flying scientists to climbing through floors, this update has a lot of good changes. Read on for a breakdown of the patch notes with some extra info!

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent players from equipping items when swapping an item on the hot bar – This has been a lasting issue; it’s good to see it getting patched out.
  • Helping a wounded player no longer gets canceled simply by looking away from them Now, you can turn and spray other people during fights while reviving. This is a massive buff to reviving and makes it far more viable to do so during fights.
  • Fixed Kayak texture disappearing after using it for a short time
  • Improved Sheet Metal building block textures to make it easier to differentiate between the hard and soft side of the building blocks This is a big win for new players. Changes like this lower the skill ceiling in a way that is very beneficial to the new player base.
