The Rust Halloween event is upon us! We've released a patch containing lots of spooky features, enabled the Trick or Treat event, NPC Mummies and a surprise.
We've also updated the Halloween loot tables from last years event and added a new item "Ghost Costume" (see image below), you'll be able to find these as rare drops from killing Scarecrow NPCs.
Trick Or Treat Event
Once roughly every two in-game days, a candy hunt event will begin. You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many candies as you can. The top 3 players are given special loot bags as a reward. These candies and loot bags can be opened for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249!
If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The Candies you collect can be upgraded for better loot.
There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Pumpkin Bucket will allow instant pickup of candies and the Scarecrow Wrap and will provide you with an advantage via Candy Vision.
The Halloween event will run until November 5th.
