Rust Update 1.30 New Monuments and Heavy Scientists

Rust Steam

Rust is a multiplayer game where players have one goal: survive. The developers just released the Offshore Blowout Update that adds several new features to the game.

Oil Rigs

The developers added two of the most requested monuments into the game - the Small Oil Rig and the Large Oil Rig. These rigs depend on the servers you play in, as some servers will only have one of them and others have both.

The Small Oil Rig is a monument that brings new opportunities such as puzzles, loot, and combat scenarios for players to get immersed in. It's best to conquer them as a team. More players, the better. The Large Oil Rig offers similar opportunities but they are bigger and better than its smaller kin.

Heavy Scientists

The developers also added a new NPC called the Heavy Scientist. This NPC is more challenging than your regular Scientist and you can encounter them in the new Oil Rigs from this update. Get a team if you want to take this one down quickly.
