Tuna Can Lamp

The Tuna Can Lamp is a player-deployable lighting item in RUST. Players can craft one without the need of a blueprint or a workbench nearby.

While decorative, tuna can lamps are a pretty good starter light source for base lighting due to their ample light output and low fuel cost. Players will often return from a scrap run with a tuna can or two to provide the team with food, and these can convert into some much-needed light for the starter base or even an expanded base. They make a great lighting solution until a player is able to advance to an electrical lighting system that can be hung from the ceiling. They emit light similar to Chinese Lanterns but may be hung from the wall instead of the ceiling. 

When turned on, tuna can lamps require Low-Grade Fuel to function and emit a soft orange, semi-flickering glow. They are less likely to shine through walls like the much brighter Camp Fire but don’t offer a heat source. Since they don’t cast as much leaked light, they are a safer choice for use during the night. Players will be less likely to spot a hidden base at night if the owner is using tuna can lamp lighting. However, one drawback to this lighting solution is that they must be deployed on a wall tile, and finding open wall space could be tricky in cramped starter base layouts.
