We're seeing more graffiti skins this week, some of them quite good, and feature a few on the Top Ten for you. Best skin this week is a toss-up between the Apocalypse Garage Door by StabbyMcStabface and (Not) Kosem, or the Free Hugs door by Estavos. Although Free Hugs is more fun, we give the top spot to Apocalypse. It's an impressive piece of art!
Our first garage door is the Apocalypse "Warzone" door by StabbyMcStabface and Not Kosem. It's got a Dr. Strangelove / 70's revolutionary kind of vibe, with missiles, gas masks, fighter jets, and a giant explosion in the background. "Warzone" is scrawled across the top graffiti style, and angry people scream for blood in the foreground. The message is not subtle.
And in contrast, here's more street art. It's the happy kind, full of colors and flowers and a large peace sign to advertise the Friendliness of the owners. Drop by and ask if they can spare some mushrooms and hemp, and help spread the love!
Nice detail, good aging, and plenty of color to brighten up your neighborhood. What more could you want?
Much like the Hippie door, Free Hugs also invites you to come on over and feel the love. Knock first, and press your face against the view slot to receive the love. The door is different on both sides, so you're getting a lot of low-rent art for your money.
Nobody does graffiti like Estavos, and Free Hugs is one of his best. His workshop is littered with property value destroying graffiti, so if wallowing in squalor is your kind of thing, drop by and check it out. Some of his work has been approved and is still available on the Steam market.
My Only Friend reminds us of KeKe's work--full of detail and humor with tons of stuff to look at. Looking closely, you can see the rock describes the misadventures of some poor Survivor, wandering this small, radioactive island in search of food, warmth, and safety. Alas, there are difficulties.
Your only friend will always start with you when you need him most, alone and naked on the beach, in desperate need of safety and shelter. Though you may leave your friend behind as you grown stronger and more confident, he'll still be there again, in your time of need.
In the wake of last week's successful Aztec door, Mishka and Jesin offer a new Aztec series skin, this time a large wooden box. It's meshed with rebar and carved aztec blocks featuring the angry god from the door. It's fangs drip with poison, but it's eyes are no longer crying blood, so maybe some sacrifices have appeased it for now.
A creative and well detailed box for just about any base, we recommend using it to store enemy skulls and human meat. You can leave it on the doorstep of a raided base to return the remains of your victims.
Mishka's second featured skin this week, the aristocratic armored door will lend your base an air of luxurious decay, fallen splendor and down at the heels decadence. A downtown Las Vegas poker club, forgotten by all but a die-hard old clientele, reeking of tobacco smoke and cheap booze.
Oh, we could go on and on. Excellent detail and aging here, and note the door has two completely different sides--follow the workshop link below to see the back.
Teeth. Poison. Angry, reptilian beast with alien psuedopods. It's your basic Rust warskin writ large over an LR300, colorful and cartoony and full of testosterone and aggression.
Not that these are bad things--this is Rust we are talking about. Unicorns need not apply.. The monster looks great from a distance, and we like how the gaping lower jaw uses the gun grip to open wide. We don't like how the drawing covers the entire gun, but the overall result is still pleasing, and belongs on the Top Ten.
Awarded as first prize in the Roof Camper of the year championship shoot-off, granted to the camper with the most kills, bonus points for single shot kills.
The trophy comes with a golden "number 1" seal, some bronze casing and a golden Roof Camper plaque to commemorate your murder spree. A kill count has been lovingly scratched into the side, above the trigger. Let no one escape!

The polymer SMG by Krovv is the latest iteration of a long process of design and improvement stretching back many months. The current version is very good, featuring an ugly but realistic dull beige polymer body capped with salvaged metal parts and competent makeshift repairs. It's a grim, no-nonsense weapon of war any Rust bandit or mercenary would be proud to own.
A handsome, if slightly bloodstained large wooden chest by LittleRanger for the lone wolves, solitary stalkers, adventurers and do-it-yourself-ers who make up a sizeable percentage of players in the game. It's a fancy wood and brass chest emblazoned with a pair of stylized metal wolves, a fine place to store the skulls of all the frat house clanboys you rub out in your personal quest for glory and survival.
