Rust October Update is upon us, and it is a major update that introduces the long-awaited Rusts mission system. Facepunch Studios has announced that the game is in development, with updates including underworks, missions, and more. Players will be able to roam the Rust Desert for any purpose, and the upcoming patch will add a mission system that will find new NPCs in the game world.
This update is limited to the new mission system, but the game also gets a new vehicle, the panel van. Future updates will include a greater variety of missions, including those for co-op and PvP. This month the missions will be solo, but there will be co-op missions in the works as well, and eventually, PvP missions like delivery, ambushes, and bounty hunts will be added.
Currently, there are only 2 missions that are limited in time: Vodka tackles (1-hour limit) and other missions that can be done in your spare time. Anyone driving through the area in Rust’s newest vehicle, the motorhome, does not have to undertake any missions. The Developers will try and add a lot of missions and features on the way ahead, but the mission system is this month’s update highlight. This new feature will add the ability to accept quests from certain NPCs in exchange for some rewards for completing them. From October 7th, you can complete a quest of NPCs to earn junk and treasure. In a mission system given by new NPCs throughout the game world, players can perform tasks on them in exchange for treasure scraps. Players will be able to visit NPCs and perform various tasks to get rewards.
In a new patch released on Thursday, players will be able to visit NPCs to accept, complete, and submit missions for rewards. Players can now join NPCs, visit them, take on missions in the new patch, which runs every Thursday, and participate in rewards. One of the examples can be Shinobi Pack which gives a complete outfit and weapon option for players who are willing to spare a few Rust coins. There are also rewards such as metal scraps and various boxes of useful materials. You will be able to talk to NPCs, choose which quests to complete, aim, trade rewards, scrap treasure containers, etc.
In a press release, developers insist that the mission system is the first iteration of the long-awaited mission system centered on new players. Missionaries will be accessible in protected areas, while provisional duties will include fishing, logging, shark hunting, and treasure hunting. The developers emphasized in the press release that the first version of the Rust mission system will be a “first iteration” of a mission system focused on newer players. It will have both solo and co-op options and will include PvP-focused goals such as bounty hunting. Only single missions will be available from the October update, but there will also be co-op missions and PvP missions.
