Rust Gets a New Content Update on ‘Deadly Catch’ Featuring a Fishing Village
Rust was updated with a new content update in celebration of the Console Edition’s one-year anniversary. The update was already available in the public testing branch of the game, and is now available live. The gameplay will be even more exciting with the addition of rowboats and fishing villages.
Players Can Now Use Kayaks
Kayaks are a great way to get to the Oil Rigs. The Blueprint for the Kayak and the Paddle can be purchased. If you are looking for a way to fish, kayaks can be found in containers located around the map.
New Mini-Game of Fishing
You can catch many fish with the Fishing mini-game. It all depends on where you live and what bait you use. Different fish can be found in different places, such as rivers, lakes, or ocean shores. Some of these fish are only possible with the right bait. You can either cook the fish or sell it at one of the vending machines in the Fishing Villages after you have caught it.
Monuments to New Fishing Villages
Two variants of the Fishing Villages monument will be added to the map. These are safe areas, similar to The Outpost and The Bandit Camp. Blueprints are sold by traders inside the Fishing Villages. They can be used to make a Kayak, Paddle, or Handmade Fishing Rod. You can also buy diving gear and boats from them. You can also sell your fish at the vending machine.
Rush will release a special skin to celebrate their one-year anniversary. The skin will be free for all players and we will soon reveal more information.
As newer updates have resulted in more memory consumption, the developers are currently optimizing the game. In the near future, optimization will be improved. We can expect optimization changes in the near future.
