Scientist Patrol boats#520

Scientists spawn on a boat and can ride it around. Kind of like the scientist that spawns on a road. Makes looting on the sea more dangerous. Can spawn up to 3 scientists on one boat.

I am opposed to this idea, I like scientists to fight but I don’t want to have to look over my shoulder for patrol boats.

I am strongly against this idea. The sea is the last haven of peace. We already have players in rhibs and minicopters patrolling it, as well as the cargo ship, we don’t need more surface danger.

Wildlife, however, like sharks or whales would be interesting.

Alright guys thanks for the opinions :3
And also what I meant by this is that max 3 or 4 patrol boats spawn on the whole map and circle around the island not billions of boats because that would make the game unplayable :3

I think this idea is great, but it should come with an increase in loot. Farming the sea is already frought with peril. It only takes once or twice jumping out of a moving boat and watching your fully fueled boat speed off into the beautiful sunset without you…

This sounds interesting for sure they should be rare to find but mably like theres a chance of the spawning near oil rigs and patrolling beside the cargo ship. They should also have a box on the boat with good loot

Can you also make the scientist who patrol loot spawns more interesting… They currently dont make any sense game wise and do absolutely nothing for excitement or immersion. Maybe small patrols in the new vehicles coming out? I always liked the idea of 5 or 6 scientists actually walking the length of the road from one radtown to the next.

@Maurino Berry I would love to see this used by scientists to put pressure on people sitting back and sniping oil rigs with bolt-actions for too long. It’s a strategy that is too safe. Random roaming boats might be a little bit cool, but actively spawning one that beelines towards somebody sniping for too long would be a great move.

This is an absolute good thing. I consider myself a man with many principles and morals, I don’t like abusing things which i consider ‘too easy’ and being able to just farm barrels and crates/toolboxes endlessly with hardly ANY sense of danger is absolutely too easy especially in Rust. I love this idea :)

There could be loot in the front compartment of the Rhib like 1 tier 2 item and other random stuff to make killing them worth it….. scientist loot should be decent not like the trash road scientist loot….

You could also make this the only way to aquire Rhibs is by killing a patrol boat… they dont spawn randomly anymore… like stealing a cop car in old gta…

farming the sea is used by many solo players early wipe(specially on wipe day) since its hectic all around the map for the first to two weeks into wipe solo players(like myself) choose to go calmly farm the sea to avoid any encounters with either big groups or even the road scientists. putting scientists at sea, would make it so that you would have to at least take out a tier 1 weapon(recolver) to go farm which early wipe for us solos is hard.
