Now that Rust is out of Early Access, their big monthly updates are quite interesting. The latest added in plenty of fun.
It's been teased for a long time, but the Chinook Event is finally in the game officially! This doesn't replace the traditional helicopter, it's an additional server event.
Be warned though, there are AI scientists aboard and they are prepared to defend it. It will do a run through some in-game monuments and then eventually release the payload it's carrying. What makes it interesting, is that it's not a traditional box that it drops. Instead, the loot will require some time to disarm the locking mechanism, which will make it very interesting for groups going after it.
In additon to that, there's now boats! They can be found along the shores and require low grade fuel to operate. However, act quick as they decay if they're left outside for too long. It's not enough just have boats though, to spice things up there's now floating junk piles in the water full of loot to find as well.

The server is wiped on the first Thursday of each month, which is forced by the developer and helps keep it fun.
