Rust Update Brings Drones & Card Games: What Does It Mean?

Drones in Rust: With the upcoming Rust update on February 4th, 2021, the new drones will be implemented in the survival game. Contrary to what many players and fans initially thought, they do not serve as weapons that are used against you or your enemies.

On the contrary, they are completely neutral at the time of introduction and do no harm to anyone. But they help everyone who pay them. The purpose of drones is namely to deliver raw materials to players. However, it can only be used in combination with the new marketplaces!

And this is how the drone delivery service works in Rust:

  • Build or go to a marketplace
  • Show all shops on the map
  • Choose the cheapest provider and order
  • At around 20 scrap you can have it delivered to you by a drone

So far this has only worked on the Rust test branch. As already mentioned, this change will appear on February 4th for everyone on the stable servers.


Card Games in Rust: Another option to pass your time will also be part of the upcoming Rust update. In the future you can play several card games with Freund and Fein in the bandit city.

It is still unclear which games are exactly. In this case, the following would of course be suitable:

  • poker
  • Black jack
  • Faro
  • High-low
