Ready to dive into Rust? Okay, then! Let's go.
Not sure where to kick off? No worries! We got your back.
Here's a handful of advice and pointers from our time with Rust, to get your game journey rolling.
Rust throws you into a survival scenario in a wide-open world. It's about crafting stuff; weapons, buildings, clothes, using whatever you find. You can join forces with other folks, or skirmish with them over loot, even organize squads or tribes to face off versus player teams.
In Rust, you're on an island, cut off from the globe by some big, bad disaster (You'll discover the what and why yourself!). No head honchos to beat here, only endless adventures waiting to happen!

#1 Get Your Online Map
Ever play Rust? It's a game with tons of stuff you need - wood, stone, metal, sulfur, berries. Don't forget about the yummy animals or other players you might want to hunt!
Low on resources? Just grab an online map made by super helpful players wanting to share info. These maps are typically created by players or many people coming together.
Need to find a bear at night? A cave with coal? Trees that grow really high? These maps will show you all that and even some spots always stocked with resources - neat, huh?
#3 Tools Of The Trade: Weapons, And Armor
Chests might have weapons or you can make one. Your choice!
Want some armor? Well, the blacksmith has got you covered. Shells out some in-game cash or ingots, or get lucky with a loot crate.
#4 Smart Use Of Leather: Craft Bandages
Got leather scraps? Craft bandages for healing. Oh, you can make a medkit from bandages, a real lifesaver! More leather scraps? Upgrade your medkit into a backpack for more storage!
#5 Search for an Ideal Spot to Set Up Home Base
First up, ensure it's defensible. A hilltop house won't simply repel raiders by its mere existence. Protection requires active effort. Your stronghold may need defenses like a battering ram deterrent.
Next, think about raw materials! A superior base boasts nearby resources, but stingily shared with rivals. Nearby water reduces thirst, and local trees provide lumber, staving off hunger during supply shortages.
Remember to evaluate resource accessibility in your location decision: aim for a short walk!
#6 Prepare in Advance and Exercise Tent Set-Up
Either seasoned camper or greenhorn tent assembler, pre-field testing is invaluable. Such preparation ensures instant tent establishment in the heat of the moment, offers learning opportunities and time estimates. So how to speed-erect your tent?
- Ground stakes provide stability (hammer them in using a mallet). This is best used when the weather is calm.
- Start setting up your tent from inside, first joining all poles. Roll them up to the top of your backpack, ready for next use.
- Here's a quick trick: One person lifts their pole, the other person connects theirs close by (everyone should know the right direction!). Fasten them using rope loops (or any other material), then pull down firmly. Done!
