The keys for it must be won by playing ventti, after the player exceeds the 4,050 mk bet. The player has to risk the Satsuma to win this car. If the player wins, they get to keep the Satsuma and win the keys and ownership of the Ruscko. If the player loses the car bet, there is a chance to win it again including the Satsuma in the second all-or-nothing bet where the player can gain the possession of the ventti house.
The car can also be started by using a screwdriver from either the spanner or ratchet set. Unlike the other driveable cars, the Ruscko does not have a built in radio. The back of the car also acts as a bed which the player character can sleep in. The Ruscko is very worn down, with a lot of rust and dents; the grille is bent and one of the wheels is missing its hub cap. The wear is also present in the engine, as it can sometimes stall just after starting it, and it produces blue smoke from the exhaust. The car also has a roof rack to store items unrestrained, which may lead to large items falling off.
When cargo is loaded either into the back or onto the roof rack, the car may have trouble getting started, stalling whenever you put it into gear. To mitigate this, you can either bind the clutch to an analog button or stick and slowly drop the clutch, like you would in a real car, or quickly tap the clutch button to achieve a similar effect. Once the car is rolling and the engine rpm is high enough, the engine will supply enough torque to avoid stalling.
Although the car is capable of going over 140 km/h, the lack of power at lower RPMs, the distance between the third and fourth gear, and the uneven roads of Alivieska make it very difficult if not impossible to reach such speeds.
At high speeds, the Ruscko will wobble similarly to the Hayosiko.
There is a wasp nest underneath the dashboard on the passenger side. The player character is allergic to wasps and being inside of or in close proximity to the Ruscko will cause the wasps to emerge and attack the player. Too many of these stings will kill the player. The nest can be destroyed by towing/pushing the Ruscko into the lake. Allow the vehicle to soak for a minute or two and wait for a wet "pop" sound indicating the nest has been eliminated. A fire extinguisher can also be used to spray the nest and kill wayward wasps, though this option is much more risky.
- If the Ruscko is on uneven terrain, the fuel gauge will move to indicate slightly fuller or emptier levels, depending on the orientation. This is due to the ball float in the fuel tank moving as the fuel inside the tank changes depth.
- When driven for any amount of time, the coolant temperature gauge indicates that the Ruscko is overheating, but the car doesn’t show any other side effects from this, meaning that the gauge could be faulty.
