Halloween is in the air! And, with that comes candy, pumpkins, and scary masks, all making for a very promising Halloween patch for Rust. Naturally, this includes the annual Halloween update; read on for a full breakdown.
The Halloween Candy Hunt event is now in-game! During it, you can collect candy in order to create goodie bags. Each bag will provide a different tier of loot, ranging from Tier-one revolvers and DBs up to Tier-three AKs. There is even a chance to get an M249. Each event will last three minutes, during which players should be picking up as much candy as possible. Anyone who comes in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place will receive prizes. There are also various items to help you in this trick-or-treating; pumpkin buckets will make it easier to grab candy, Scarecrow wraps help by giving you more “candy vision,” and spooky ghost outfits will frighten off any competitors.
This event will run from now until Nov. 3rd.
As well as Candy Hunt events, there are also various portals that have appeared around the map! Entering these portals will teleport players into a Halloween-themed dungeon where their skills will be put to the test.
New Halloween Items
In addition to the events mentioned above, there are also a few skins that have appeared in celebration of Halloween.
Hide your facial deformities with this creepy hockey mask. Maybe hunt some teenagers around the Two Cabins monument. This is a Metal Facemask reskin.
Cultist Deer Torch
The Cultists must have dropped this while opening the portals throughout the world! The Cultist Deer Torch is a reskin of the starter torch. Once the torch skin is selected or crafted, you’ll respawn with this skin.
It wouldn’t be a zombie apocalypse without hitting zombies in the head with a baseball bat, after all. Are you more Steve Harrington, or Negan? This is a reskin of the Mace melee weapon.
Frankenstein returns in this patch! To create him, slay some scarecrow mummies to collect body parts. Then, once you have collected enough body parts, you can assemble them on the Frankenstein’s table (Craftable in tier one). Once assembled, you can even control him (Default Key “P”). After this, he will follow you without question.
If you’re having trouble accessing the pet menu or already have a key bound to “P” then you can also use the following console command, without the quotes: “bind X +pets”. Or simply open the in-game controls menu and rebind.
Here are all of the spooooooky items coming back into the store, just in time for fright!
Additionally, they’ve resurrected the following items:
Rust Console’s Halloween is essentially the same as PC, with a few small differences and additions:
Halloween Weapons: Sickle, Butcher Knife, Pitchfork. These weapons can be found in loot bags or crafted during Halloween.
