The Shirt is a chest-covering armor item that contributes protection to the torso portion of a player. They offer considerable nighttime concealment earlier in a wipe for players playing solo due to their natural darker color.
It is an exact statistical duplicate of the T-Shirt. The real difference comes down to the aesthetic qualities, with the shirt appearing ‘dressier’ than the t-shirt.
Shirts are commonly found in low-to-mid tier crate types, as well as frequent drops from most Scientist NPC types. Players may learn them directly via the research table or by investing scrap into the tier 1 workbench tech tree.
Shirts were a relatively common early game skin target earlier in RUSTs history but have since become rarer as the community focuses more on Hoodies. They may be recycled for a small amount of cloth.
