As usual on Thursdays, the server has been patched and it’s back up and running. This was not a wipe, just an update.

Below you can find a list of the changes to Rust this week. For me, the improvement highlight is that flares were added to Search lights, helicopter, flash lights and laser sights. This not only makes players more visible when they use them, but it blinds other players a bit. Should be very nice.
