The Ruins of Nosti is a Cave underneath a ruined building on the Scorched Earth map.

The Artifact of the Destroyer (Scorched Earth).png Artifact of the Destroyer and a Scorched Sword Skin (Scorched Earth).png Scorched Sword Skin can be found in the artifact crate.

This is easily the most dangerous cave in Scorched Earth between the jumps over a bottomless void and the combination of some of the most dangerous creatures—including large swarms of Onyc.png Onycs and Mantis.png Mantis. Survivors should be well-prepared before tackling this cave. Mega Rabies will come from the bats, so make some Lesser Antidote.png Lesser Antidote beforehand.

Tips/Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Immediately, the cave requires you to crawl under some boards to continue. Therefore, most creatures cannot enter or leave the cave.
  • Be prepared to possibly encounter a rare Rubble Golem.png Rubble Golem (a variant of the Rock Elemental.png Rock Elemental). Extreme caution should be taken around them, and conflict is best avoided on-foot.
  • A Grappling Hook.png Grappling Hook can save your life and your inventory if you get knocked into the void.
  • It is possible by using 4 or more articles of Ghillie Chestpiece.png Ghillie Armor, in combination with a Cactus Broth (Scorched Earth).png Cactus Broth and Bug Repellant.png Bug Repellant, to avoid most, if not all of the creatures in the cave. Level Stamina, and be careful to avoid Titanoboa.png Titanoboa and Rock Elemental.png Rock Elementals.
  • Beware of the "Trap Loot" below and to the right of the series of jumps there is a loot crate near the instakill area on a ledge however it will kill you before you even reach it.
  • Raising a decent Thylacoleo.png Thylacoleo right behind the crouch entry is an option, because it can climb up the ledge to the left of the "Killvolume" area. After that you have direct access to the south part where the artifact is - so you don't have to do the dangerous jumps. Also it has decent weight, so one could farm the Obsidian.png Obsidian inside the cave.
