Rust Survival Guide: Do's and Don'ts if You're New to This Cruel Sandbox

 The beginnings in the Facepunch Studios title can be very difficult.

The open-world survival and action video game from Facepunch Studios has had an incredible rebound in popularity thanks to the fact that the main streamers are all playing on the same server, Egoland . This has caused interest in the game to grow .

Like Among Us , and like other games for various reasons , Rust is living a new life . If you are one of those who want to try your luck in the vast and cruel world of the game for the first time, it will probably give you some vertigo, since it is still difficult to get started in these titles that give so many possibilities and not many explanations .

It is true that first of all the correct thing would be that you will practice on a server in which there is respect for new players, since there are some that are used as a learning, before launching into PVP . In Rust we start naked and with a stone, and if you start directly on a server where there is a lot of hostility, it can be very difficult to progress .

We wanted to give you six tips so that the start in Rust does not become so difficult for you and you focus in the first hours of play on the fundamentals so as not to make the experience frustrating. We also recommend that you follow the tutorials, because the video game will explain key mechanics to play. You don't know the title and you don't know if it interests you?

What to do when starting a game

Find yourself a little corner

The first thing you should do is find a place to start your life. It doesn't have to be near where you first appeared. The most remote places and the thickest forests are a good place. Once there, place the sleeping bag that is key to craft and a box to keep materials. Of course, while you find it, collect wood and other basic resources to start your existence on the right foot, which brings us to the next point.

The best defense is ... a weapon

It is important that you can soon make an ax and a pickaxe to collect better resources, and faster. A bow, arrows and a wooden spear (which you can also throw) are also highly recommended. It is important that you are armed because they can attack you and at least you will have something to defend yourself. By the way, be very careful with wild animals.

Eat, drink and watch your needs

Rust is a survival game and as such the dangers are diverse. Not only will you have to be aware of animals, other players, or even body temperature or radiation: you can also die of thirst and hunger. It is important that you collect at first any food that you find and drink water, to cover the needs. We recommend that you get seeds little by little and make a garden when your base begins to grow. Later it will be key to cook regularly and always monitor the status of the character.

The first house

Although you will need a significant amount of materials, the first construction is key, in order to be more secure and start storing your belongings. Of course, put the sleeping bag from the beginning inside (if you don't have one for a bed ...) and don't forget to put a lock. It will also be important that you get the necessary materials to make yourself a furnace to make metal.

Looking for the treasure

Once you are more established and feel confident, it will be important to go exploring beyond your base. This is essential because you can get interesting loot all over the map. You will also find recipes to be able to build new items and unique equipment. By the way, don't forget that there are shops out there to buy.

What not to do when starting a game

Hide yourself

We have told you at the beginning, but we insist again. The open places are bad, do not be near roads or "natural" paths to go from one key point to another. Don't think mountains are safe places either. It is important that you go unnoticed, because you will be an easy prey for the rest of the players.

Hello and goodbye

Rust is cruel. If you decide to start the adventure alone, our recommendation is that you be very careful with the rest of the players. Avoid confrontations because you have everything to lose and your progress will be very difficult. For this reason, it is important what we told you to arm yourself, even with the minimum, because in case they go after you, you must try to defend yourself.

Don't accumulate resources, use them

This advice is especially for the first hours, when you don't even have a safe place and a box to store things. Do not be obsessed with accumulating wood and other resources: use them. The beginnings are hard but you have to act quickly and effectively, and just as it is important to know what to focus on, it is essential to know what actions you can ignore so as not to waste time.
