Rust: Console Edition received a small update a few hours ago. Update 1.41 went live today and it brought a ton of balancing changes. Several weapons and items were tweaked, and some general changes were made.

From now on, Workbenches can refill Jackhammer. Workbench 2 health point is reduced to 500, while the health point for Workbench 3 is down to 750. Players can now eat Dropped Cooked Fish directly from the ground.

We have mentioned the highlights of the update below.

GENERAL CHANGES
  • Added another variant of the Fishing Village. (This new variant will be available in some of the servers, after the monthly wipe)
  • Adjusted the amount of scrap you get in return for fish at the vending machines in the Fishing Village.
  • Refreshed the Stack Splitting UI. Stacks are now color coded, the number of items in each stack updates dynamically, and stacks can be split between the inventory and an open container that accepts items.
  • Stack Splitting will no longer be canceled when players have Too Hot or Too Cold effects, when an inventory item finishes crafting, or when taking damage.
  • Adjusted the default hotbar cycle mode to Full Cycle Mode.
  • Kayak now sits a little higher in the water.
WEAPON CHANGES
  • Compound Bow removed as a default blueprint and added to the Workbench 1 tech tree. 
  • Increased the amount of Metal Fragments needed to craft the Compound Bow from 25 to 75.
  • Grenades can now be stuck to building blocks by using the alternate throw button.
  • Reduced the crafting time for Rocket Launcher from 180 seconds to 60 on Workbench 2, and from 90 to 30 on Workbench 3.
  • Reduced the crafting time for Custom SMG from 40 seconds to 30 on Workbench 2, and from 20 to 15 on Workbench 3.

The patch also addressed several bugs and crashing issues, and you can read them in great detail via the official site.
