SAM Site

The SAM Site targets any air vehicles (minicopter, scrap helicopter and hot air balloon, even TC authorized players with air vehicles) in range and shoots SAM ammo at the targeted vehicle. They will also target at MLRS rockets, 3 SAM sites are recommended for maximum MLRS protection. It is recommended to have a RF Transmitter or a Smart Switch paired on your phone to toggle the SAM site if you have air vehicles. As of February 2022, the SAM site has a Defender Mode that only targets MLRS rockets but not air vehicles. This allows you to still use your minicopters, but never friendly fired by your own SAM sites.

It will most likely completely miss high speed Minicopters passing by. The ones landing or starting up have no chance though. Same goes for Hot Air Balloons , which are very low on speed.
Even if you're authorized on your Tool Cupboard, it will shoot at you since the range is several times larger (3x or 4x) than the Tool Cupboard .

Be careful if you have minicopters on the same roof as the sam site. If the minicopter explodes the fire will destroy the sam site very quickly.

You can now easily obtain elite crates without a single card thanks to the Minicopter update, here's how:
Before you can do this you're going to need to obtain this list of things:

So here's what you need to do step by step:
  1. Land your Minicopter near the Launch Site on the side where the big Launch Site building connects to the perimeter walls (be careful to land it with enough distance [+/- 120 metters at least] to the Launch Site otherwise the SAM Sites will shoot you down);
  2. Walk down to the back of the big Launch Site building while still outside the Launch Site perimeter wall you will see a SAM Site on the top of a wrecked truck on the grass;
  3. Destroy the SAM Site using 1 Salvaged Sword (or use other tool/weapons shown on the link on the top list ↑);
  4. Now if you face the Launch Site big building, to your right there is an entrance, go inside, now to your right again but now inside the Launch Site, you will see a warehouse with a watchtower next to it, go on the top of the watchtower and jump to the rooftop of the warehouse next to it, now you will see another SAM Site on that rooftop, destroy it by using the same method above;
  5. Now this where it get's a bit tricky. Go back to your Minicopter and fly it at low altitude while aproaching from the outside of the Launch Site between the 1st destroyed SAM Site and the entrance that you used (WARNING: This needs to be done correctly otherwise you will get shot down by other SAM Sites on the Launch Site) when you slowly reach the top of the Launch Site there will be more SAM Sites that won't shoot you unless you fly higher than altitude that you just need to land;
  6. Land the minicopter on the the rooftop of the Launch Site big building;
  7. Grab the elite crates from the rooftop;
  8. Fly back to your home using the exact same path that you used before (but obviosly reversed).

And that's it, no cards needed.

Sam sites do not shoot down. If you fly below them they wont hit you. Sam sites require 25 energy to opperate.

Don't know if this is common knowledge, but if you have your minicopter/salvaged heli on a rooftop that is above the SAM site and within its range then it will shoot it until it explodes or until it runs out of rockets even if the helis are not active (ie, rotors on or player in seat). This will happen even if there are walls inbetween or you put it behind doors.

You can combine A blocker and rf receiver with the sam site to remotely turn it off to provide safe passing for teammates or allies. Here is a scuffed rustrician- https://www.rustrician.io/?circuit=c576df4598c929ab94a469cb0a86a2df
