Major Radiation - Bug?

Was wondering if it’s a bug or if it’s supposed to be there. I was running around, not exactly sure where, and suddenly radiation started to rise from 0-2000~ in a couple of seconds. From what I could see, there were no town or anything nearby either.

You probably went out of the actual “map”, what i understand is that the map is not fully released.

Do you mean the areas of the map without resources?

There is no radiation in those parts. And I am pretty sure he didn’t go for a swim.

But yeah its a glitch/some weird new hack but that is probably not suppose to happen. Just don’t go over there I guess.

There is area with nothin on but rly high radiation. It is relatively close to the sea

It’s to keep people from finding the hidden sea base.

Shh, don’t tell them! Rust is only in alpha, they can’t find out now!!
