I'm excited to announce Rust's first Rustmas base decorating competition!

We're looking for the best festive base Rust has ever seen! 

The Christmas content update happens later this week on December 16th, 2021 and will stay in game until January 6th, 2022.  You have an entire month to impress us :)
I know a few of you are going to go ham on this and I couldn't be happier!  Hoping this Rustmas will be the best one yet. Go big or go home, right?


£75 worth of skins of their choosing and two Rust DLC keys.

£50 worth of skins of their choosing and one Rust DLC key.

How To Submit

Once you’ve completed decorating your base, take a screenshot and upload the image to  Twitter using the hashtag #Rustmas2021

The winner and runner up will be announced from Rust's official Twitter account on January 13th.


Submissions will be judged based on the following:
  • Creativity
  • Design
Judging will be performed by Facepunch Staff.


This competition is run by Facepunch Studios Ltd at Concept House, Elmore Green Road, Bloxwich, Walsall, UK. The competition ends on January 6th 2022 23:59UTC. No more than three entries per person. The winner and runner-up will be selected based on which Facepunch thinks is the most original/creative and any decisions Facepunch makes will be final. The winner and runner up must claim their prizes within one month of the closing date (which Facepunch may exchange for an alternative of the same or greater value). Our terms of service apply to any content you make for the competition: Winning entries must pick items from the Rust marketplace with market value.
Our favorite Weed Farmers are back with a wholesome Rustmas short film where Porgiee is a complete spaz and gets kidnapped. (shocker right?)

I want to spend Christmas with them next year.

This month we have Tesla!

"I originally got into rust watching some of the old school youtuber's back in 2015, people like Vertigo, Ser winter, Zuckles, Faceless and Phaedo 82, really the list goes on.

I have always loved sandbox games similar to rust, but this one just hit different, and I knew I would be playing it for a long time to come, and well look at me now. Almost six years later, still having fun playing the game I love.

Luckily for me around 2018, I had friends in a group called TGB that encouraged me to start uploading videos, thinking it would be a fun thing to look back on in the years to come. Well it turned out them saying that to me, would changed my life forever. and the rest is history really. I have met great people along the way and hope to meet a lot more, I could never imagine that one day I would have a spot on Rust's community spotlight."

If you haven't been over to Rust Arcade recently they have a new-ish game mode called prop hunt and it's exactly what you think it is.  They recently teamed up with our friends over at Reddit to bolster their support system!

It's always risky putting a Stimpee video in the blog but this one seems tame enough :)
We can always count on p90princess to bring us overwhelmingly warm roleplay fuzzies while we celebrate our 8th Birthday! <3

If any of ya'll have been to my staff profile you know this one gets me chair dancing. 

Far Cry 3 in Rust?  u/flouONEs made it happen.

I'm a sucker for a good speed painting!
