Chinese Lantern

The Chinese Lantern is a player-deployable decorative (yet functional) base element in Rust available for purchase from the in-game item store during the Lunar New Year event each year (or the Steam market thereafter).

While decorative, Chinese lanterns are suitable precursors to a more advanced electrical lighting system and can be hung from the ceiling, unlike the Lantern, which may only be deployed on flat surfaces or entities.

Like the lantern, Chinese lanterns require Low-Grade Fuel to function and emit a soft orange, non-flickering glow when turned on. They are by far less likely to shine through walls like the much brighter Camp Fire but don’t offer a heat source.
