The first thing you need to about these underwater vehicles is that they do not spawn randomly around the island and they need to be purchased from the boat shop at fishing villages that are spread across the island.

There are two types of Rust Submarines in the Boat Shop and their prices differ as well:

  • One-man Submarine: 100 Scrap
  • Two-man Submarine: 200 Scrap

It is to be noted that the two-man Submarine has sonar, but the one-man does not. The formerhas comes with internal fuel access too.

How To operate a Submarine in Rust

These are the controls for navigating via a Submarine in Rust:

  • Ascend: Sprint
  • Descend: Crouch
  • Movement: WASD
  • Fire Torpedoes: Left Click

The submarines have two different types of torpedoes:

  • Direct torpedoes – to fire straight in the direction of the submarine
  • Surface torpedoes – to rise upto water surface and move faster (useful against enemy boats)

Rust Shark Guide

The new underwater world in Rust now features sharks as well. Each dive site has a chance to spawn a shark that will patrol the area and players need to kill them before claiming the treasures at the dive site. Harvesting them gives you some amount of resources as well. So here’s what you need to know before encountering them.

How To Kill Shark In Rust

You can use torpedoes to fend off and kill any shark coming your way. These torpedoes can also be bought or crafted yourself.

The Speargun also comes handy while treasure hunting as you can use it from a distance for protection. It takes two spears to kill a shark. You can learn how to craft a spear gun and ammo from a Level 1 Workbench.

Do note that this weapon can only be fired while underwater and packs a punch similar to a crossbow, but with a slower-moving projectile.

So that’s all you needed to know about Submarines and sharks in Rust. For more queries feel free to drop a comment!
