Rust Christmas Event 2021: All Content & Gift Table

Deutsch English

The Rust Christmas Event 2021 has been live since December 16, 2021. Now we finally know what content awaits us. In this event guide, we show you everything there is!

Every year again: Of course, there will also be a Christmas party in the survival MMO Rust in 2021. We’ll tell you what else there is besides gifts, Santa Claus, and cool items.

These are the contents of the Rust Christmas event 2021!

The overview: This year’s Rust Christmas event brings old and new. On the one hand, you can turn the desert into a winter wonderland again, go tobogganing and build new ice walls. There are also some new items!

Santa’s Airdrops

Instead of an airplane dropping a box, you will now find Santa Claus on his sleigh, who announces himself with festive sounds. He’ll then drop a big gift that all you have to do is pick it up.


The sled

This is how you build the sled: The sled is one of the favorites of the winter event among Rust fans, and of course, it shouldn’t be missing in 2021 either. You can toboggan down the snowy mountains with him and have a lot of fun. You will need these materials at a level 1 workbench:

  • 25 metal fragments
  • 150 wood

You can also choose between two sled skins. One made of wood and one padded sled. Every time you pick it up after a trip, it loses 25% HP, which allows a total of 4 trips.

More about Rust

This is how you can ride: To be able to sled with it, you have to place it on a snowy hill and just sit on it.

But be careful! The sleigh in the Rust Christmas Event 2021 does not stop moving unless one of the following occurs:

  • No more snow
  • You get off at full speed
  • You don’t make a sound anymore & your friends scratch you off a tree or rock – have fun!

The Gaming Year 2022 in Trailers:

The Snowball Cannon (Blizzard Blaster)

This is how snow becomes a weapon: The snowball cannon or Blizzard Blaster, as it is officially called, is a machine gun in the Rust Christmas event 2021, which of course shoots snowballs. The features of the blaster are as follows:

  • 50 snowballs in the magazine
  • 6 damage to the body / 10 to the head
  • 1 damage on branch formation
  • No damage to other buildings

You can find it here: In the gifts that you can receive during the event (more on that later), you can also find the snowball cannon, among other things. This means that every player has equal access to the weapon, and it is not hidden behind any seasonal achievements.


Ice Walls

Icy coverings: The ice walls included in the Rust Christmas event 2021 come in two versions. One small and one large. Even if they are made of ice, the walls can be set up in any biome and also behave like normal stone walls. You can craft them and you need:

Material Small Ice Wall Large Ice Wall
Workbench Level 1 2
Needed Stones 300 1500
Hitpoints 200 500

The small ice wall in Rust is now about three quarters of the height of a regular stone wall. The big one, on the other hand, is just as big as the normal stone wall and can even be connected to it.


Snow cannon

Make snow in the desert! This item can be used to create artificial snow. It doesn’t matter where you set up the snow cannon.
