Outpost Scientist

The Outpost Scientist is a non-player character (NPC) in the game Rust. These scientists are key inhabitants of the Outpost, a designated safe zone found within the game. Unlike other aggressive NPC counterparts, the Outpost Scientists are passive and normally do not attack players. They are easily recognizable by their white hazmat suits and calm patrol routes around the Outpost.

Players should note that while Outpost Scientists don't initiate combat, they will defend the safe zone if provoked. Engaging in hostile actions or carrying a weapon within the safe zone will trigger these NPCs to respond aggressively to ensure the area remains safe for all visitors. Additionally, they serve as a deterrent against players who may attempt to break the peace within the Outpost.

When interacting with the Outpost Scientists, players are advised to proceed with caution and avoid any behavior that could be perceived as threatening. By respecting the rules of the safe zone, players can explore, trade, and use the facilities within the Outpost without fear of attack from these usually placid guardians.
