Servers which provide vanilla gameplay, how the game was intended to be played
If you have never heard of a vanilla server before, vanilla (adjective) means "having no special or extra features; ordinary or standard". All servers found in the Official and Community lists of the Rust server browser are vanilla and have no changes to gameplay. This allows players to experience the game in the way that it was intended to be played.
Changes on these servers are limited to convenience commands, administration tools, custom anti-cheat measures, optimizations to the netcode to reduce bandwidth usage, and fixes for major exploits before official hotfixes get released.
Different vanilla servers cater to different players needs. You should be able to find a suitable server no matter what population, map size or wipe cycle you are looking for. There is also a barren server for players who have low end hardware.View servers
Servers which modify the game to make normal gameplay better, faster or easier
Modded servers modify standard gameplay to make things better, or faster and easier for players to progress. These servers are ideal for players who do not have enough time to invest on vanilla servers but want to experience normal gameplay.
Lightly modded servers have features which add to the vanilla experience, improving various parts of the game and making gameplay slightly faster and more convenient for players. These servers have no features which are exploitable, game breaking or that take away from the near-vanilla experience.
Heavily modded servers are over the top, where everything is insanely fast and easy for players, requiring very little time investment. These servers are extreme with high gather rates, instant crafting, huge stack sizes, and many other features.View servers
Servers which give you the tools and power to create things and experiment
Sandbox was one of the very first mods that was created for Rust back in 2014. At the time, the Rust rewrite was still in an early stage of development and the modding scene was non-existent. It has come a really long way since then and is now a full scale creative game mode which provides players with a huge number of features to be able to experiment with building and all other elements of the game. It also has systems in place which prevent abuse, allow players to protect themselves against all kinds of griefing, and automatically clean up things which are owned by inactive players.
Helicopter Training is a creative game mode which allows players to practise fighting the helicopter to prepare for taking it down on normal servers. Players are given unlimited resources and time to prepare before initiating combat. You can try it out solo, or team up with other players.View servers
