The Sleeping Bag is used in RUST to establish respawn points in the game world so players can choose where to spawn upon death. It allows players to have a non-default spawn location, in which they can select the exact location(s) in the game world to respawn.
It’s one of the most helpful items in the game, hands down, and is a default blueprint available to be crafted by all players.
Placement of Sleeping Bags is based on the standard Tool Cupboard rules, in that you may only place a Sleeping Bag where you are authorized or where no privilege parameters exist.
There is a 50-meter distance radius of overlap when placing Sleeping Bags, meaning that if you attempt to place an additional Sleeping Bag within this radius, it will be on the same respawn cooldown timer as the other bags.
When placing a Sleeping Bag, the preview placement indicator will turn orange if the placement is within an existing radius. This indicator doesn’t mean it cannot be placed, just that it will share the other bag’s 5-minute timer.
Sleeping Bags can be picked up and moved with authorization, gifted to teammates and friendly contacts, and can be destroyed rather easily. For more information on the specifics check out our Sleeping Bag Guide.
