Rust August Update: More Above-Ground Railway Improvements, Improved Lighting, etc ...

Rust, an online survival game developed by Facepunch Studios, can be a challenge for newcomers, because of its trigger-happy players and the threat of destructive creatures. However, it does provide players with the tools they need to survive each night, however difficult it may be to navigate.

The above-ground railroad system is perhaps the most notable of the many changes and improvements. For instance, there have been a couple of new throwable items, including a Molotov cocktail, as well as some quality-of-life enhancements.

Back in April, Rust had a railway feature implemented, and while it was merely a "proof of concept," the new patch has made several improvements. For starters, the railway sidings now support unloadable wagons that contain either ore, such as iron or sulfur, some gasoline, or even loot.

Facepunch is attempting to keep things running smoothly in its brutal title. The July update for Rust was able to boost the combat a bit, as well as the usual round of bug fixes and general tweaks. The team is also planning a global Rust competition between a few Twitch streamers around the world on August 9.

Rust is well-known for its unforgiving gameplay mechanics. The temptation to happen upon a gun-toting player with malice on their head is all too common, but the world is quite dangerous as it becomes difficult to stave off thirst, find shelter for the night, and keep the literal wolves from the door.

Rust is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
