Is that an exploit or a way of making a PVE server into a PVP server? Or both?

“Boxing” is the act of building a exitless wooden room around someone, typically someone who is AFK. The victim can only escape if they suicide or have explosives on hand since it is wooden walls as opposed to the old means of doing so where a Shelter was used. It apparently is done for the shits and giggles one would get from your typical Rust player throwing a tantrum about being trapped and having to suicide.

Maybe it’s my ping but it tends to D/C me, then the boxer kills my sleeping toon and robs it. Once it did not d/c me and I plenty of resources so I built a furnace and a workbench. Then I beat my way out after the guy who did it got bored and left.

It’s an exploit. It’ll get fixed eventually.
