The Gold Egg is an Easter Event item that players can craft using the Easter eggs gathered during the seasonal mini-game.
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.
It may be tempting to rush for Gold Eggs, as they undeniably hold some of the best weapons in RUST as prizes.
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.
When you acquire these two items, it is only worth cracking silver or better eggs.
