RustyBits FAQ

About RustyBits Gaming

The RustyBits Gaming team met playing Rust, and each has brutally raided (at least) one of the other members of the team.

Seems like the story should have ended there, right? In fact, that’s how some of us met for the first time, and became friends.

That’s our ethos in gaming really: Enjoy the game, and don’t be a dick.

If it hadn’t been for that ethos, we could just as easily have fallen in to the kind of toxic behaviour we think ruins many games these days… And why we thought we’d do our part to try fix that:

  • We want you to enjoy the game in your own way, in your own time.
  • Our servers are configured to cover all levels of experience, and game-play style.
  • We’re new-player friendly, and a safe place for female gamers.
  • There’s many plans in the works for monthly events, and;
  • A Rust game system… system. Rust-ception?
  • Our Admins are very helpy, so message us in-game or in our Discord if you need assistance.

It’s a humble beginning, and we have much more to do. We hope you’ll join us to keep our vibe alive.

Rust New Player Guide

We think GrobeMan Guides & Gameplay has it about right.

This is our favourite beginners guide on YouTube right now,
and we think it will help new players quite a bit.

Modded Server Commands

When Is Wipe?

All of our servers are monthly.

We wipe on Facepunch’s forced wipe schedule, and will
update the server names to reflect the date of last wipe.

Finding Your Body

Unfortunately this is an integral part of life in Rust…
You’re going to die. A lot.

As such, we have not added any mods to make this easier.

You’ll need to take note of where you are at all times,
and run back to your last known location to
retrace your steps and (hopefully) find your body.

To be fair, there are times when the game glitches
and your body is hidden somehow.
Message the Admins and we’ll try to help.
