Rust: November 5 Update Introduces the Military Desert Base and MLRS

Rust November 5 Update Steam

Some really good things are introduced in Rust’s latest update. There is a new fully procedural military base that houses the MLRS, which you can utilize to destroy established bases and whatnot. A search option is now available at the marketplace to help you find things you need quickly.

Desert Military Base and the MLRS

The new military base can be built from a pool of individual modules and four different templates. But what’s more important here is the new MLRS or Multiple Launch Rocket System. It is carried by a vehicle and although it doesn’t move, it can fire multiple rockets at a specified target at your command.

The rockets that can be deployed by the MLRS can do a lot of damage to bases, but keep in mind that SAM (Surface-to-Air Missiles) sites can counter them. Two or three SAM sites will be enough to erase the rockets from existence.

To use the new system, you must first acquire an MLRS Aiming Module, which can be found in hackable crates. You will also need some rockets found in the APC or in crates in Attack Helicopters.

If you have the required items, you can then search for an MLRS and interact with it. After inserting the module and rockets, you can interact with the targeting screen where you are given the power to select your preferred target. Once everything is set, all rockets will be launched and you can see your chosen target blow up to bits.
