Update 1.56 for Rust Console Edition is now available on all supported platforms. This patch does not provide any new content, but it does address numerous bugs and exploits that were preventing some features from functioning properly.

The Metal Shop Front in Rust Console Edition allows players to make secure trades by putting up a bulletproof shop anywhere on the map. That said, there was a bug that prevented players from completing deals because the “Give” button did not work correctly. This happens whenever one side of the shop is full. This pesky bug has now been resolved, so players must download this patch on their consoles as soon as possible.

This update has addressed some exploits as well. For instance, the exploit where players can guess codes on Code Locks without getting electrocuted has been fixed.


  • Partial fix for invalid projectiles.
  • Improved Junkile Scientist AI behavior so their aggro rate and range is more comparable to Steam release.
  • Fixed an issue causing Junkpile scientists to spawn in Safe Zones.
  • Fixed despawn rates for Junkpiles so players can loot them after Scientists die.
  • Fixed an issue stopping the Scientists aim animation to play when shooting.
  • Fixed an issue stopping the Scientists crouch animation from being played.
  • Fixed a bug with Scientists so they now turn on their flashlights after switching to their weapon at night.
  • Reduced intensity of red light seen on Scientist weapons.
  • Fixed Supply Signals disappearing when using the alternate throw action.
  • Fixed an issue which prevented players from swapping a weapon's attachments while your inventory/hotbar is full.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to loot dead bodies through walls.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented stackable items from containers not merging with inventory items when there are no free slots in the inventory.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented resource nodes from sparkling at night when a light is shone on them.
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed players to use the sleeping bag assignment to find a players base, this now includes all online players.
  • Added collision to the Engine Block at the Trainyard.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Oil Rig and Cargo Ship scientists to float above the ocean.
  • Added missing collision to Spotlight in Sewer monument puzzle.
  • Fixed issues with Ping settings on the HUD options menu. Added in localisations for text description and setting the Defaults will now update the Ping settings.
  • Fixed issues with the "Take All" button so it works even if the hotbar is full and takes all items rather than just a portion or nothing at all.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed the pickup prompt to show when a container has items.

Rust Console Edition Update 1.56 is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
