No sets approved this week, but plenty of colorful skins and older skins from previous weeks and months. Our favorite is the Survivor LR-300, by KeKe
A spiky halo and thorny crown to turn even the lowest scavenger into a Messiah of Rust. Watch other players give way before you and throw their loot at your feet to bask in your presence, for they are Saved!
Well, maybe not. As a matter of fact, your interesting helmet will attract fire, so it is a good thing it offers head protection.
The golden spikes are a nice highlight feature and the spiky chain looks good at a distance, but up close it is a bit flat. Good rivets, pain, and textures.
DON'T OPEN THIS BOX. Whatever you do, don't let it out. And if you do, you can't say you weren't warned.
You can try placing Pandora's box in false loot rooms with a shotgun trap positioned above the door so they get what they deserve when they move to open the box. Or you can try placing them in real loot rooms in hopes raiders will be afraid to look inside, but we recommend relying on other security measures first. :)
An LR300 packed with KeKe's trademark angry-funny urban graffiti. It has a large surface area full of tiny details, and with the admire animations coming soon, you'll be able to look at them in close detail whenever you want. The gun is plenty Rusty and the visual humor will hit you hard.
A great new installment in the Survivor series, you can see them all in the artist's workshop. Stop by and have a look!
Are there any clowns left out there? After movies like IT (remake coming soon), and numberless lesser horror movies you'd think kids would be terrified of them. BFS continues the assault on clowndom, helping to drive home the idea that not only are clowns not funny, they'll eat your brains... or blow them out, like with this SAR.
We like how the clown face start in the body of the gun and then continues on down to the ammo clip. The purple and mauve color scheme suits the theme well, and the candy striping alone the barrel is evil genius.
If you've been in the market for a quality Hannibal Lecter / supervillain face mask, consider the Bruiser mask. It's got your riveted metal plates, scowling visage, mouth grill, and metal skull cap all working to hide your face and present a relentless merciless killer to the rest of the world.
The mask was super popular in the workshop, and technical quality is out of this world fantastic. A great skin to pick up for clan and lone wolf players alike.
A gun reported owned by Czar Nicholas himself. Didn't help him much, but it must have been seemed highly Royal in his day. Time, however, has not been gentle to this weapon, tarnishing its baroque splendor and spoiling the appearance of opulence.
It's a nice gun to have it you like that riches among ashes / Escape fron New York sort of look. The artist, AlmaTadema, has a unique style well worth checking out in his workhsop.
Much like the Khalifa SAP, the antique metal door has an aura of tarnished majesty, something of great value that's suffered the slings and arrows of the passage of time. But unlike the Khalifa, we think that's just first impressions. We're pretty sure we saw this sheet metal door on sale at a box hardware store for 29.95 do it yourself installation.
It looks grand, but it feels cheap, a room door for an hourly rate hotel, or the guest house where you store your impoverished relatives. It ain't pretty, but it is Rusty.
Rust is a scavenging game, and ravens are scavengers. This salvaged icepick has been painted black, with the tip and an "eye" painted red to resemble a blackbird, and It looks like it's been eating something other than walnuts and bugs. Lots of dead bodies in Rust...
It's a creative use of the icepick mesh, and you'll see that bloody red beak flash down every time you mine a rock or smash an enemy's skull.
Veys scored a second approval with the Darkflames SMG, a skin submitted about two months ago. The gun's received an oily paint job of Hellish flames licking along the body and the length of the barrel. Colors are bright and bold, perhaps even garish. This is not a skin for players who don't want to be seen.
Veys has a certain style that suits some tastes better than others. If you like Darkflames, be sure and check out his workshop and see the skins posed with the gun in some of the screenshots. Many of those skins have been approved and are available on the Steam Market for reasonable prices.
Tomb Raider comes to Rust with the Aztec door by Mishka and Jesin. It's a sheet metal door that looks like soft carved stone. The carving is of an unfunny god thirsting for the fresh blood and bones of unwary youths. (No god ever wants blood from old people), so don't open the door.
There are a of little touches in this door that make it a great skin. Note the rebar embedded in the face of the door, the crimped metal along the edges, and the delicate petal carving around the door knob. We especially like how the dripping blood in the eyes looks a lot like the rest of the dirt and corrosion all over the door.
Originally named Fishing is Forbidden, this AK skin depicts a large angry fish with lots of teeth snarling at a fish hook. Better not reel it in the boat--might have trouble getting it out again.
The gun is one of Freddy's earlier works, and languished on the back burner for months. The artist likes to splash brightly colored images across large canvas skins like the AK. His work is creative but also technically competent, as you can see in the fading of the paint, the texture of the cloth wrappings, and the dirt and grease on places like the grip and ammo clip.
