The Bronze Egg is an Easter Event item that players can craft using the Easter eggs gathered during the seasonal mini-game.
Ever since the Happy Easter Update in April of 2019, Facepunch servers begin an easter event each day-night cycle during the Easter season. A loud bell will ring, and players will be alerted to the arriving eggs.
Players then compete to pick up as many eggs as possible until the timer runs out. The players with the most eggs will be announced and granted extra prize eggs at the end of each round.
You can upgrade 10 of your Painted Eggs to a Bronze Egg, then 10 Bronzes to a Silver Egg, lastly, 10 Silver eggs to upgrade to Gold Eggs.
It may be tempting to rush for Gold Eggs, as they undeniably hold some of the best weapons in RUST as prizes.
However, it is worth cracking a few Bronze Eggs after your first few rounds to collect the Bunny Ears and the Egg Basket.
The Bunny-Ears will allow you to see more eggs than other players, and having the Egg Basket equipped makes picking up each egg significantly faster.
As soon as you acquire these two items, it is only worth cracking silver or better eggs.
