How to Dance in Rust [Voice Props DLC]

How to dance in Rust? Let's find out and kick ass on the dance floors.
How to Dance in Rust [Voice Props DLC]

To use dance emote in Rust, you need the Rust Voice Props Pack DLC. And to use these dance moves, we can see our dancing emotes when we press the "B" key, which is the normal emote wheel in game after receiving the voice props pack.

With the Gestures update in Rust, emote wheel has been added to the game and players can use many more gestures such as clapping, liking, and pointing. And so the game became much more interactive and fun. 

Press "B" and you will see 3 different dance emotes. This dance emotes are Twist, Cabbage Patch, and Raise Roof.

Now it's time to burn it up on the dance floors with new dancing emotes.

Now let's take a look at the craft costs and how to use the many other cool and fun items that come with the DLC.

Rust Voice Props Pack DLC

The DLC includes 17 separate loosely connected things to play with, so it's nearly the same as the Sunburn DLC. We will take you through the items one by one. So the first items are a Cassette Recorder and 3 different cassettes.

How to Use Cassette Recorders and Cassettes in Rust

We need to just insert a cassette into the recorder, and use RMB to record and LMB to playback. We have to press the voice chat key to record our own voice whilst it's recording, but it will record anything it hears in its proximity.

For example, you can use it by putting it near some people's basses, or you can somehow record your favorite music and stick it in your car.

If you want you can even throw it with "R" and it'll stick to surfaces like a satchel charge. Played, tapes will auto-loop until stopped.

Cassettes come in three lengths, that's 10, 20, & 30 seconds. Each is pre-recorded with a song that's handy for irritating people with. But thankfully they can be recorded as many times as you want without a loss in quality.

Now, this is quite fun on its own but cassettes can then be taken out and loaded into other devices for playback and more. For instance, they can also be inserted into a deployed Telephone to unlock Voicemail functionality.

So for example you can record an automated message on the cassette with the recorder, then pop it in the phone, and if someone actually calls you, after a few rings it will play your message and they can leave a voicemail. Your outgoing message is safe and can't be recorded over. The answering machines will only store one message sadly, the most recent one.

How to Use Portable Boom Box in Rust

The next item which can be used with cassettes is a Portable Boom Box for carrying on one's shoulder, just put a tape in and press LMB to start and stop playback. But now here's where it gets really interesting. If you take the tape out and press the RMB radio window will pop up.

Basically, the Facepunch has sorted out a way for us via this DLC to play internet radio in-game. There are some URLs already programmed in but it will support any direct MP3 streams and URLs and you can store a list of your favorite stations.

There is no limit to how many radios can be played on the server at the same time and it is stated that it does not affect server performance.

Now you may be thinking, this is the perfect deterrent against being raided by all those streamers. Simply play some copyrighted music whenever they're around. However, sorry but you can turn off hearing internet radio streams in settings, and cassette recordings. And you can listen to copyright-free music like rust and chippy soundtracks.

How to Use Boom Box in Rust

After the shoulder-carried Portable Boom Box, the regular Boom Box is next.

The Boom Box consumes 10 energy and, like the other one, can play cassettes, and internet radio streams can be connected to external speakers.

Here is one of the connected Speakers in question which requires 1 power to run and can be connected in a chain of up to 15.

How to Use Microphone Stand in Rust

For those who want their voices to be heard, the next two items should be interesting.

First of all, a Microphone Stand requires 1 power and needs to be connected to a speaker. You have to mount it to use it and the menu allows you to choose between low, normal, and high voice effects.

I was going to record that last bit of dialogue actually through the microphone stand, but it appears the speakers are obnoxiously loud for some reason.

How to Use Megaphone in Rust

The Megaphone Microphone can be used in possible kidnapping and ransom situations, or as a friendly warning from the outside to the inside before raiding someone.

We need to just press LMB to broadcast your voice whilst holding. And it apparently projects your voice just over double the normal distance.

How to Use Mobile Phone in Rust

Continuing with Mobile Phone. Just press LMB while holding to open the phone dialler. Apart from, that it is just like a normal phone, good for distracting people when you see them near a phone box, not pay 2 win at all.

We've got a recording, playbacks, microphones, internet radios, and mobile phones, so what comes next, what's the natural progression here? That's right, Disco!

Introducing 4 disco-themed items. The music light does the flashings, the music lasers do the lasers, the disco ball rotates and reflects, and the disco floor. Including dance floor all require 1 power each at the moment so are very energy efficient. You can give really nice lighting effects to disco floor items.

Apart from the disco ball, they all have settings for color, pattern, volume sensitivity, and speed. Disco balls are not included if you connect any of them to a boom box they will sync in time with the music. But there is an option to limit the flashing of the lights if you want to.

Other things to note are that there will apparently be 7 Steam achievements to go along with all of this.
