How Difficult are The Military Tunnels?

Military Tunnels

The Military Tunnels provide players with some incredible Loot in the game. They are really popular as a Monument in Experimental Rust.

But despite their popularity, they remain also one of the hardest Monuments to conquer. These Tunnels are extremely Radioactive. Along with the possibility of dying from radioactive poisoning, you will also be faced with the challenge of NPC Scientists that will be many times harder to take down than the usual ones you encounter on other Monuments.

Scientists will spawn inside and outside the Tunnels, so their abundance will also be a huge hindrance. These powerful NPCs will usually be equipped with high-end artillery such as the LR-300. And they will not be afraid to use it on sight whether you are in close proximity or far away.

There will also be a Puzzle in this Monument that you must solve in order to reach some of the main loot.

What Do You Need to Enter The Military Tunnels?

You will first need a Hazmat Suit. Even with one equipped, you are likely to get some degree of Radioactive poisoning effect with prolonged exposure inside the Tunnels.

You will also need a Green Card to be able to access the main loot of the puzzle in this Monument. A good list of items you should keep on yourself in order to prepare for The Military Tunnels adequately includes items such as : 

  • Around a dozen syringes.
  • About 100 pieces of Cloth.
  • 20 Pumpkins.
  • A Green.
  • A Blue.
  • A Red Card.
  • A Weapon Flash Light.
  • 2-3 Fuses.

How to Enter The Military Tunnels?

Provided that The Military Tunnels are an expansive Monument map, you will need to navigate through this Monument carefully.

There will be around two entrances into these Tunnels. Whether you choose one or the other, you will be greeted by around 3 Scientists ready to guard the Fuse Room ahead. You can ignore the Fuse Room unless you want to finish the Red Card Puzzle.

To your left, you will also find a hobo Barrel and a ramp that will take you down to the rest of the Monument.

Once you go down the ramp and get to the first corner, you will find the Rocket along with another entrance to the second side of this tunnel on your left.

To your right, you will also find a pathway towards the Elite Crates and the Red Card Room. If you choose to go to the Rocket, you can run past the Scientists with good weaponry loadout and armor set equipped.

If you do choose to do the puzzle in this Monument, you can head towards the right and beat all the Scientists to gain access.
