Happy Easter Update & Event
The RUST Easter Event has arrived! Released on April 19th, 2019 as part of the Happy Easter Update, the RUST Easter Event is a week-long event where eager egg-hunters are able to participate in a festive hunt for colorful eggs. In addition to the eggcellent egg hunt minigame, a collection of items and RUST Easter skins were released into the game to help RUST players celebrate the season.
Egg Hunt Event
The Egg hunt event occurs automatically once every in-game day, though admins can use the egg hunt command to manually start the event. Music will begin to play and an on-screen animation will alert players that the egg hunt will be beginning soon.
When the event has started, players will have 3 minutes to collect sparkling Easter eggs that will spawn in random locations throughout the game map. A leader board will appear at the top-right corner of the screen to show the egg hunt leaders. Once the 3-minute timer ticks to zero, all remaining eggs will disappear. The event is over when the top-egg-collector is awarded their prize.
Player Collectible Easter Eggs
Players are able to collect Easter eggs by running up close to them and holding the
E button for 2-3 seconds, after which the egg is successfully added to the player’s inventory. For each Easter egg collected, their egg-collection total will be incremented. However, be sure to wait until the egg has been added to the inventory before moving on to the next Easter egg.
Any eggs that are collected during the egg hunt will remain in the player’s inventory and can be combined to upgrade to Bronze eggs.
Surprise Easter Eggs
Eggs that are collected by players during the egg hunt event can be combined and upgraded for Bronze Eggs in a similar fashion to the gift boxes during the Christmas event. Combining 10 Bronze eggs yields a Silver egg with chances for better loot than a Bronze egg would produce. Collect 10 Silver eggs to combine them into a Golden egg with even better loot than the Silver egg.
Decorative Easter items have been added to help players celebrate the season! The items include a decorative wreath, adorned with colorful eggs and flowers and two exquisitely ornate Rustige eggs with a delightful surprise inside. These items are available for purchase in the Steam Store.
Easter Door Wreath
The Easter Door Wreath is an attractive door ornament with colorful eggs and small, white flowers topped with a large, sky-blue bow. The wreath does not provide a source of light at night. Here is the link to the item on the Steam Store: RUST Easter Door Wreath.
