Rust Maps Explained Guide 

Rust is an addictive survival game. It won the hearts of many players who are ready to fight for the life of the character and look for non-standard ways to improve the situation. If you are ready to fight for your achievements and find new meanings, then you should learn more about the possibilities in the game. In this article, we’ll take a look at maps that will help you survive in the cruel and merciless world of Rust.

What is a Rust Map?

The Rust map plays an important role in a character’s survival success. There is a huge area for players to explore, so knowing where to go and what to expect can help a character a lot. Moreover, knowing the features of the map allows a player to move with the correct and useful weapon, as well as avoid some mistakes that can lead not only to the loss of valuable time but also to death. Depending on the terrain of the chosen map, a player has various options for traveling, attacking, and building. 

Without a map, a player would have to rely on his memory or spend a lot of time wandering around the area and looking for the necessary points. The Rust map typically includes mountains, seas, and hidden lakes. All players have access to the map, they can get it at any time when connecting to the game server. The map is one of the keys to survival success in different Rust cases.

How to Use the Rust Map?

To get the full benefit of Rust’s map view, you need to understand the meaning of grid overlay. This is one of the most important functions for a player’s success. Each row of the grid has its own number, and each column has its own letter. This grid provides players with great navigation options. For example, the player can find his comrades or some important objects. You can activate or deactivate the grid by clicking on the “Grid” button in the upper left corner of the map. In case you play Rust with a group, you can identify them in green on the map. The yellow dot indicates your current location. 


Different Types of Rust Maps

There are four maps available to players in Rust. They have their own unique features that help players progress through the game. Each map can have up to three biomes:

  1. Temperate (This is the most optimal biome to start the game. It is warm enough and there are forests where a player can collect stones, wood, and plants for survival).
  2. Desert (This is a dangerous biome, as temperature changes can be deadly. However, this is a great place to hunt and look for boxes and barrels with value loot).
  3. Snow (This is a great biome for finding metal. However, to visit it, a player needs warm clothing and fire to keep himself alive).

Now, let’s look at the maps in more detail.

The Custom Map

Rust players have a great opportunity to get involved in the creation of maps. Custom maps are available in the “Community” and “Modded server” tabs. Here you should not rely on the rules that apply to other maps. Therefore, some maps may only consist of deserts, volcanoes, complex tunnels, or roads. This choice may be the most interesting for experienced players.

The Barren Map

This is a barren map, the landscape consists of trees and stones. At the disposal of a player are only tools that have a game value. With such a map, a player can get a pretty tough PvP experience.

The Premade Map

There are two maps in Rust where layouts are always fixed. These are Hapis Island and Savas Island. These two maps are completely different worlds. Hapis Island is a map that is full of roads with meadows along the coastline and mountains rising in the middle. This map is considered less competitive, so players have a special attitude toward it. Savas Island is the perfect map for players who are looking for some hardcore PvP. The idea behind this map is for the player to start from the bottom zone and work his way up the hill with Rad Town. Here the player can find valuable loot. Chests in Rad Town contain more weapons, so players are more enthusiastic about engaging in intense PvP.

Procedure Map

This is the most common type of map in the game. Such a map is randomly generated, that is, the location of all biomes, objects, and roads is random. With the help of such a map, players can find new routes around the island. These maps provide players with some protection from other participants. Such maps are also used to create resources, loot, and craft recipes.

How to Open the Rust Map?

To open the Rust map you need to press the “G” key while connecting to the server. Holding this key keeps the map open and visible. To view the map in the desired direction, you need to make the right mouse button click. Release the “G” key to close the map.

To Wrap Up!

Rust provides players with many options for a unique survival experience in different biomes and landscapes. Detailed maps will help you keep track of important objects and develop tactics for moving through the game.
