RUST Chinook 47 Command and Variables

RUST Chinook 47 Helicopter Command (CH47)

The RUST Chinook 47 command and variables

The RUST Chinook Helicopter Command and soon to be event, was introduced and slated in quarter 3 of the RUST Experimental Roadmap, but recent updates have introduced the Chinook entity and event to the main branch, making it spawn-able by admins and moderators.

The event was introduced in the Devblog Vehicle Update. The physical Chinook entity can be spawned into the game with a simple command — with or without the accompanying scientist on board. The Chinook 47 event is designed to run automatically on vanilla servers by default, in a similar fashion to the current Patrol Helicopter and Supply Drop events. This requires the “server.events” variable to be set to true.

The Chinook 47 event will be piloted and crewed by the mysterious blue hazmat suit wearing scientist. It will fly to specific radtowns and monuments, in which a locked supply crate will be dropped to the ground and must be defended from other players while the codelock on the crate is bruteforced, before being opened. There will be two versions of the locked crate, which can now be viewed on Devblog 198, a code lock version and a padlock version.

Humans will be able to pilot the Chinook 47, however, it’s is being designed primarily for the scientists to control and operate it for vanilla servers. You can be assured however, modded servers are going to take advantage of this as soon as it’s available.

Who can enter the RUST Chinook 47 command and variables

The RUST Chinook 47 helicopter command and variables can be issued and configured on vanilla RUST servers by RUST admins and moderators only.  Non-admin players on vanilla RUST servers cannot use the RUST Chinook 47 helicopter command and variables.
