    Combat balance and small update


    12:00am - Kicking off this month in development, the team at Facepunch is working on combat balance and fixes. 

    Our update preview stream goes live at 1pm EST. Follow @Rustafied for news throughout the week.


    Mandatory update today

    Facepuch will be releasing a mandatory update today at 2pm EST (7pm BST) to apply some changes to the new recoil and gunplay (details found below). You’ll need to update your client to continue playing on your favorite servers. Here at Rustafied, we will be applying the update to our servers as soon as it's available.


    Combat balance changes

    Taking feedback from the community, the team at Facepunch have made some changes to gunplay which are going live with the mandatory update. Here are some details:

    • Directional hitmarkers will now display when you have the hide blood option enabled

    • Silencer has had its accuracy bonus removed

    • Blur and blood effect when at low health has been toned down a bit

    • Recoil when zoomed in using a scope has been modified

    • HMLMG recoil has been slightly adjusted

    • Durability of the HMLMG has been slightly reduced

    • The crafting cost of the HMLMG has increased:



    • 30 HQM

    • 1 Rifle Body

    • 2 Springs

    • 3 Gears


    • 60 HQM

    • 1 Rifle Body

    • 3 Springs

    • 3 Gears



    Server ping alert

    Coming with the update next month, you may soon see a new message when connecting to certain servers. If your actual ping is much higher than what is displayed in the server browser, this new message will show in the top left of your screen.
