Rust dev update details candle hats, barricades and floor spikes

Rust candle hat

Facepunch Studios have outlined the new features, changes and stuff coming to Rust, which includes a practical candle hat for keeping your surroundings illuminated, and your pate nicely coated in melting wax. That striking image courtesy of the latest devblog, which also details the new weapon ammo wheel, barricades and ouchy floor spikes, plus the return of the location-dependent headshot sound from the 'Legacy' build.

Interestingly, Facepunch's Petur has "added a single high-yield, zero-radiation facility in the middle of the island. Noobs probably need not apply, as you’ll need warm clothing to survive a night there". Here's what the new facility looks like:

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
