What’s the buzz about the Rust Seismic Sensor? We will talk about everything related to teh seismic shift update in the game.

How Does the Rust Seismic Sensor Work?

For base defense, the Seismic Sensor is revolutionary. Powered, it searches for nearby explosions and signals power when found. Its features are briefly broken out here:

  • Range Configuration: You can set its detection range from 1 to 30 meters (with one foundation equaling 3 meters).
  • Explosion Detection: It outputs different power values depending on the type of explosion detected:
    • 1 power: F1 Grenade, Beancan
    • 2 power: Explosive ammo, Satchel
    • 3 power: C4, Rocket

This allows you to adjust your basic defenses to respond differently based on the threat degree. The possibilities are unlimited from setting alarms to activating traps.

How Will This Change Raiding Strategies?

Alarms blare as your target’s Rust Seismic Sensor detects your C4 charge, midway through a raid. Alerted the defenders, their traps go off. Raiders will have to be more cautious and strategic given this fresh dynamic. The days of silently, unquestioningly breaching are long gone.

The Seismic Sensor gives defenders early warning system. It lets them respond quickly, triggering counteractions meant to turn the course of an attack. A successful raid might be made or broken by this extra layer of protection.

Can You Place Barricades in Monuments Now?

The update now lets the ground surrounding Monuments be covered with barricades. This marks a major change from the conventional blocking of all kinds of building inside Monuments. This is the reason this shift counts:

  • Strategic Cover: Players can now use wood, stone, concrete barricades, and sandbags to take cover during fights in and around Monuments.
  • Enhanced Tactics: This adjustment rewards players who pick strategic locations, providing cover in previously open fields, making Monument fights more dynamic and engaging.

What About Seeing Teammates’ Deploy Guides?

Have always found it difficult to know exactly where your colleague is building something. The new Rust tool lets you view the deploy guides of a teammate. During fierce build battles or while setting up defenses, this clarity might literally save lives. This function defaults to show guides just during building; but, you may disable it completely or change it in the options menu to “Always Show”.

Is It Clear Where Building is Blocked?

It has always been difficult to negotiate the building restrictions around monuments. The new visual feedback system clearly shows where building is blocked by red outlining of Monuments. If this function conflicts with custom Monuments, server owners can turn it off on the options menu.

What’s New in Quality of Life Changes?

Rust’s update isn’t just about Rust seismic sensors and barricades. Here are some notable quality-of-life improvements:

  • Faster Code Locks: The “last used” button now enters codes faster.
  • Bone Fertilizer: Bone fragments can now be used in composters to create fertilizer.
  • Faster Window Crafting: Window glass, shutters, and bars now craft in 15 seconds instead of 30.
  • Skin Names: See the names of skins at the Repair Bench, with links to get them.
  • Helicopter Handbrake: Idle helicopters no longer drift down slopes.
  • Reduced Speed Penalty: Horse armor now slows horses less.
  • Salvaged Hammer Buff: Increased damage against deployables by 100%.
  • Mixing Table Ammo Recipes: Added HV Ammo & Incendiary Ammo to the mixing table.
  • Industrial Conveyor UI: Improved ease of setup and searching.
  • Block Explosives in TCs: Prevents players from stashing explosives in Tool Cabinets.
  • Hammer UI Consistency: Hammer now always shows all options to reduce misclicks.
  • Reduce F15 Volume: Lowered volume by 50% to reduce ear strain.
  • LOD Improvements: Fixed monument prefabs appearing invisible from afar.
  • Planter Autofill: Hold Sprint to auto plant all held seeds in a single planter.
  • Vendor Attachments: View weapon attachments in vending machines.
  • Chainsaw Hit Radius: Adjusted for easier hitting of trees’ X mark.

Why Instant Rejoin is a Game-Changer?

After a disconnect, never find yourself caught in queues! Should you be kicked for a crash or internet outage, the new Instant Rejoin function holds your spot for five minutes and lets you avoid the queue. This enhancement guarantees a less annoying and more seamless gameplay.

What’s Up with Wire Slack?

The new wire slack adjustment allows all the builders out there to use the mouse wheel to change the slack in their wires under LEFT SHIFT. Although it doesn’t change gameplay, this graphic change gives your electrical configurations a tidy touch.
