Rust PC Update Patch Notes – August 6, 2021


Rust update (August 6, 2021) is now available to download on PC (Steam). According to the official Rust patch notes, the latest update added procedural underwater labs, submarines, fishing, and more. Apart from this, Rust patch also includes 8 new types of fish, Sharks, and  Spear Gun.

A significant update was previously released with balancing, gameplay changes, and a long list of bug fixes. Unfortunately, some players are still experiencing a number of issues while playing the game.

Today’s Rust PC patch will fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.


Rust Patch Notes (August Update)

Procedural Underwater Labs
Vincent Mayeur

The new underwater labs are fully procedural dungeons that reside on the ocean floor. They will come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and for now, with two entry points. You enter them from a ‘moonpool’ in which you re-surface with your submarine. From there, make sure you have come prepared to face the various puzzles on offer.



  • Added procedural underwater labs
  • Added submarines
  • Added Fishing
  • Added 8 new types of fish
  • Added Sharks
  • Added Spear Gun
  • Added side maintenance tunnels at underground train stations, where the work cart trains are now kept
  • Added 32 new prefabs for map makers

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed audio level on thrown cassette recorders
  • Fixed thrown cassette recorders not playing when coming into network range
  • Fixed wires sometimes not displaying when placed at the maximum distance
  • Fixed ice lakes never spawning
  • Fixed prefab mountains not spawning on large maps
  • Fixed shore wetness being applied deep underwater
  • Fixed a graphics.uiscale value of 0.8 hiding the search text on the crafting screen when at 1080p
  • Turned the exception from a failed ‘connect’ console command into a warning. It now shows up in the UI and as a warning in the console, instead of in the UI and as red exception text
  • If a player is killed while inside a hurt trigger (e.g. barbed wire), always kill them immediately – same as if they’d died by the hurt trigger itself
  • Fixed swamp fog lit at night from 750m

Balancing and Improvements

  • Wires will now snap to the socket position and not the surface behind the IO object
  • Can now left click a filled IO socket to limit the animation to just that socket
  • Can now press RMB while placing wires to remove the last placed point (hold RMB to clear the whole line)
  • Improved performance, memory usage and initial buffering behaviour when streaming internet audio
  • Show IO information in crafting panel
  • Boom boxes connected to the same URL should now play in sync with each other and only use a single web stream
    Improved beat detection on dance floor, sound lights, and laser lights
  • Improved fishing village spawning (more of them on smaller maps, better coastline coverage)
  • Recycler right-click item transfer now rejects items that can’t be recycled, doesn’t move them to the input
  • Right-click moving items to recycler now stops once the input slots are full, doesn’t start filling output slots
  • Made it easier to jump onto the underground rail platforms while standing on the train tracks
  • Improved swamp fog visually
  • Toned down CCTV blur
  • Reduced hurt/cold/hot overlay
