    AUX Preview

    The AUX branch became public again, allowing players to see the first iterations of some exciting upcoming functionality. The below items (labeled AUX) are not expected to go live in the February update.

    To access AUX for yourself, simply go to Steam library > Right click Rust staging > properties > BETAS tab > Select AUX from the list and run the update.

    Edit: It appears the Arctic stuff below will be ready for February along with the QoL changes!


    Snowmobiles (AUX)

    Two work-in-progress Snowmobiles are on the AUX branch. Here are some details:

    • They drive well on both snow and sand, but not so well on grass

    • Health: 300hp - repairable with metal frags

    • Faster than a sprinting horse on good terrain

    • Faster than a single engine car with HQ parts

    • Can seat 2 people, but moves slower

    • It appears these will spawn at the Arctic Monument
