Rust: Tips and Tricks for Beginners 2021

RUST has many niches within itself, such as electrical and building systems, which some players might like better, than PVP system. Whatever interests you the most in the game, it is important to have comprehensive knowledge, because no matter, do you appreciate them or not, there are always parallel systems around you.


Tip # 1 - choosing a server.

Choosing your first server to play, you can aim for less than 100 players. Or maybe, even less 50 players. In this way, you will be able to progress faster and learn the mechanics of the game easier, without getting killed too many times.

Although you might think, that playing on the official Facepunch server would be the best option, these servers, usually, filled with much more experienced players, have no group size restrictions and, usually, have a slightly higher chance of encountering hackers.

It is usually best to browse a community server or a modified server with active staff, which will monitor players and ban hackers, cheaters or anyone, who abuses the group size limitation, which gives you a better chance. If you find, that progress is a little slow, you can try going to 2x server instead, to speed things up a bit with Rust.

I would not recommend using a server higher than 3x, otherwise it's not really Rust. You can check all this information in the server description in most cases, just by clicking a server in the server list.

Council number 2: learn PVP.

Instead of, to try to develop PVP skills in the game, using items, which you worked hard to create, you can practice PvP on training servers or sandbox servers. You can select any specific weapon on many of these servers, or appear with all of them, which will allow you to practice with any of them.

Remember, that the first level weapon is easiest to get in the game, and tier 3 weapons are the hardest. Probably, it's best to focus on lower tier weapons to start with and work your way up as you go.

You can check the weapon level in the crafting menu, if not sure, or do a quick google search. Personally, I would recommend focusing on the bow, because you will use it at the beginning of every wipe. Good bow skill can give you a good head start..

As soon as you feel comfortable with the weapon, another tip is to just use it. Don't leave them in a box, because you are afraid of losing them, because you can never use them. Moreover, even if you die and lose your weapon, this is a good experience for pvp on a real server.

Tip # 3: learn to build.

Getting your first base on a wipe can be tricky sometimes. And death during the construction of your first base can be very unpleasant., often forcing you to quit smoking. Before, how do you start building, it would be nice to make sure, that you have everything, what is needed to build a base, for example a door, lock and tool cabinet.

I would recommend spending some time on a creative or sandbox server, to practice creating a default base base, which you can use with every cleanup, guaranteeing, that you will get it quickly. The more times you build it, the faster you will.

Most people use a one-by-two or two-by-two base.. If you are not sure, there are many tutorials on this on YouTube and other bases for beginners.

Tip # 4: choose, where to build.

Choosing a place to build is something, what each player faces at the beginning of each wipe. No matter, how many hours do you have, a place, where do you build your starting or main base, could be the difference between a really good wipe and a really bad one.

You want to build close enough to the trees, so you can process wood, and close enough to hilly terrain, so that there are nodes for a farm for a stone, metal and sulfur. You will also want to build fairly close to the road and nearby town., so you can mine scrap and components. But be careful, how close, since they, usually, are a hot spot for other players, who want PVP and get loot.

If you want to minimize the number of players, you are facing, try to sit in a snowy area, as many players try to avoid it. Just remember to make and wear enough clothes., so as not to freeze. To the extent, how you gain more and more experience in the game, you can start building closer and closer to settlements.

Tip # 5: don't farm too much, until you get the base.

When you first join a server, especially if he just erased, you will find yourself in the same boat, like everyone else. Either you farm materials, to build your first base, hiding from those, who is trying to kill you, or trying to kill players, who collect your resources.

Don't farm anymore, what is needed, and not the farms there, where do you appear. Run straight there, where do you want to settle, and build a base, as soon as you have enough resources. Excessive farming is one of the main reasons for, that people die early and quit smoking, because they keep losing all their hard earned materials and items.

If you have a base, even if she's one after another, you can store your loot every few minutes, to minimize your losses.

Tip # 6 - sleeping bags.

One of the most annoying parts of Rust isn't just death, but also the need to wait a few minutes, before it can respawn in your sleeping bag. To get around this, you can make multiple bags and place them in and around your base.

In doing so, you don't have to deal with long bags every time, when they kill you. You can watch my other videos with tips and tricks., to see, how close can bags be to each other, before they start showing the respawn timer.

We also want to use this on a fresh wipe when starting from the starting point of spawn to where, where do you want to build. When you have enough fabric, create bags and place them on the way there, where do you want to build, as waypoints. If you die, you can respawn in one of these bags, which is located not only away from the populated spawn zone, but also a little closer to that place, where do you want to build at the end.

Tip no. 7 - look back.

Although it may sound silly, he might come in handy, when you run, farm or do something else. If you hit alt, you can watch freely, without changing direction of running or gaze.

It means, that you can farm a node or tree in front of you, looking back and to the side. You can also look around, bye run in a straight line, what really helps to see, is someone chasing you.

Tip no. 8 Is agricultural scrap.

If you find, that farming on the road is not good for you, because you keep dying for other players or can't find any loot, then it's a great idea to try to grow scrap in the ocean. Not many people are inclined to collect scrap metal in the ocean., especially at the beginning of the wipe, so there are more opportunities to find more loot and less chance of dying. You just need to learn how to use boats in Rust, and from there it's pretty simple.

Although boats have really low fuel costs, you can usually cover this by breaking red barrels, which you collect on the found rafts. It means, that maintaining your marine trophies is practically cost-free.

If you find diving equipment while farming, you can also use it to collect underwater crates, which can be recognized by a floating bottle on the surface of the water. It takes a little longer to get them., but they, usually, contain the best components and resources.

Tip no. 9 - growing resources.

If you find it difficult to farm resources, because you can't find them or keep dying again, it will help. Try to go to the quieter part of the map for farming. Key Resources, which you need, Is wood, metal, a rock, sulfur, fabric and animal products, such as fat, for low-grade products.

Wood can be found more or less anywhere on the map. Primarily in green areas and more densely in forested areas, which can be found in the brownish areas of the map. Wood, metal and stone can again be found anywhere on the map. However, it appears much more densely in the mountains on the map., which are usually white.

Cloth or hemp is mostly found in the green areas of the map., but, sure, there are other ways to get them in the desert or mountains, eg, using cactus or processing, but this is a little more complicated.

Animals can be found everywhere on the map, however they are usually looked for, so it's best to go to a quiet place, eg, into the corners of the map, where most players wouldn't go and look.

Tip no. 10 Are honorable mentions.

If you light a fire at your base and sit next to it, comfort will rise to 50%, if there is only one of you. You can use this, to determine, is there someone at the door of the campsite, because your comfort will be higher 50%.
If you right click on an item in the creation queue, it will move to the front of the queue, so you don't have to wait, while other items will be crafted first.
If you drag the middle mouse button, this will split the stack in half. If you move the middle mouse button and drag, it will split one third of the stack.
