Rust received a new content update to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Console Edition of the game. The new update has already been out in the public test branch environment of the game and it is now available in the live version of the game. The addition of Fishing Villages and Rowboats will make the gameplay a lot more exciting.
Players Can Now Use Kayaks
Kayaks will be super useful to help you get to the Oil Rigs without the need for low-grade fuel or splashing out the scrap for a better boat. buy the Blueprint for the Kayak and the Paddle, which can also be used as a weapon. Kayaks can also be found inside containers around the map if you want to go out on fishing sessions.
New Fishing Mini-Game
The new Fishing mini-game allows you to catch a great variety of fish depending on where you are and the type of bait you are using. Rivers, lakes, and ocean shores will all provide different fish, and some of them can only be obtained with the right bait. Once you catch a fish, you can then cook it to use as food or sell it in one of the vending machines inside the Fishing Villages.
New Fishing Village Monuments
