What is Rust?

Rust is a wilderness survival game inspired by games like Minecraft. Survive in a ever-changing "hostile environment where emergent gameplay can flourish" (Rust Wiki).

Shockbyte Rust servers include custom features like configurable scheduled map wipes, blueprint wipes, playerdata wipes, or full wipes. Enjoy full support for features such as Rust+, Oxide, Harmony, Custom Maps, and even the Rust Staging Branch on Steam!

Thanks to Shockbyte's automatic Rust Oxide installation and support, you can easily expand the content or quality of life available on your Rust server by installing plugins such as the Backpacks mod!
