Christmas is also celebrated in the harsh world of Rust and you can take part in the Christmas event in the game until January 4, 2024.
We’ll tell you what activities await you in and around the game this year!

Christmas presents

As every year, there will be a gift-giving ceremony in Rust at regular intervals. When you hear the bells ringing, look around because two presents per player will spawn in a 40-meter radius around you.
Smash them and you can loot presents.

These come in three sizes – small, medium and large. You can exchange enough gifts of the smaller variety for the next larger one.
The bigger the gift, the better the loot – everything from resources and tools to weapons and equipment is included.

You can also get reindeer antlers and Christmas hats as well as socks in the gifts.
Hang these up in your base and then find some small presents in them after every gifting, although the socks only last for around 10 uses.

You can also create an advent calendar from which you can draw a gift every day until the end of the event.

Gingerbread / cake mines

During the event, you will also find gingerbread houses in the game world. If you enter these through the door, it will take you to a kind of mine where nasty gingerbread men want to get at you and guard some nice and good smelling loot in their dungeon.

Rustmas items in the store

Of course, there are also some items matching the event to buy in the store. These include a snow machine, a snowman, a snowman hat and Christmas lights.
