The social survival game already let you build giant metallic fortresses from which to harangue new and naked players, but now you can take the next logical step and remotely activate traps from your telephone.

That’s thanks to the new app, which also lets you chat with your team and track in-game events as they happen on the map.

You can even set up push notifications that alert you when your new “Smart Alarms” get tripped.

The “official companion app” is called Rust+, and yep, I’ve already covered pretty much everything it does: chatting, tracking, and trapping.

If you want to cackle at your pitiful invaders from afar, preferably next to a roaring fireplace, you’ll need to rig those traps up to the two new electrical components.
