Rust Console Edition update 1.30 is ready to download on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Its arrival was promptly followed by a server wipe, making way for the Offshore Blowout content being introduced. Diehard fans can also get their hands on some new premium DLC with more packs available from the in-game skin store.

After years of waiting, Rust finally made the leap from PC to console. It’s been almost a decade since the popular survival sandbox title hit Steam early access, quickly becoming the template for an entire genre.

Rust Console Update 1.30 Patch Notes

New Content

  • Small Oil Rig

    • This offshore monument brings new opportunities for puzzles, loot, and combat. Bring a team to conquer this one.

  • Large Oil Rig

    • Very similar to the Small Oil Rig, but much bigger with more puzzles, more loot, and protected by a greater number of scientists.

  • CH47 Event

    • This event can be triggered by hacking the locked crate found on the top level of Oil Rigs, and it will introduce you to a new enemy, the Heavy Scientist.

  • Heavy Scientists

    • A new and much more challenging NPC.

  • Multiple Grenade Launcher

    • This powerful weapon can be looted from the Heavy Scientists, and uses 40mm Smoke Grenades, 40mm HE Grenades, or 40mm Shotgun Rounds.

  • Buoyant Backpacks

    • Loot from players and NPCs killed in water will float on the water’s surface instead of sinking to the bottom of the sea.

  • New items added to Skin Store

    • We will have some new skin packs to celebrate the release of OFFSHORE BLOWOUT.

Gameplay Changes

  • Increased building blocked zone around the Harbour monument

  • Updated localization files

Fixes: 

  • Fixed texture issues on Roadsign Gloves

  • Fixed a bug that could cause players to be kicked when dropping Roadsign Gloves

  • Fixed some skinned items losing their skin when dropped from inventory

  • Fixed missing shadows on road signs

  • Fixed missing collision on a fridge door at the Lighthouse monument

  • Fixed an area where players could get stuck between ice sheets

  • Fixed some skin icons and previews not appearing correctly

  • Fixed barrels clipping through sewer walls in the Airfield monument

  • Fixed binoculars making your eyes go square for a moment

In our review of Rust on PS4 and Xbox One, we scored the port a 6/10, saying: “Rust Console Edition manages to transcribe the wildly popular PC experience, but a few key missing features mean it falls short of what it should be. It could be great in time, but right now it feels like a disappointing misstep in comparison to the fleshed out PC version.”
