Cheating in Rust opens up a range of possibilities that never would have been possible if you hadn’t been hacking, but it also exposes you to the risk of getting banned because other players report you. If you’re trying to make sure that you don’t get caught hacking in Rust, here are some tips.
Aimbots are the most popular cheats available for a reason, and it’s because they’re able to improve how you play the game directly instead of leaving mechanical control in your hands. An aimbot can instantly turn you into a world-class player, so why not use one of them. Unfortunately, they’re pretty risky.
Due to how aimbots work, it’s often pretty easy to see that a player has one active. For example, if you go around killing people the millisecond they come into view, they’re going to have some questions about how you were able to react so quickly and get them on target faster than they could notice you.
While this can happen from time to time with legitimate players, if this keeps happening over and over again, it will become evident that you’re using an aimbot. One thing to remember is that Rust servers are relatively small communities where word will get out if someone’s being suspicious.
So what if you want to use an aimbot to the fullest extent without getting caught and banned from your favorite Rust server? One of the best ways to do so is to use the aimbot settings that are available in the configuration menus of most cheats, and these include aimbot smoothness and aimbot FOV.
Aimbot smoothness is the most crucial configuration option since it lets you reduce the amount of jerkiness that is evident in an aimbot’s snapping to targets. When your aimbot smoothness setting is set lower, it will snap to targets faster, making you much more likely to get caught by perceptive opponents.
On the other hand, if you turn up the smoothness slider for your aimbot, you’ll slow down the speed with which your aimbot locks on. If you turn the slider up high enough, your aimbot will start looking like an actual human being with the ability to aim smoothly.
Along with your aimbot’s smoothness, you should also make sure that you properly set up the aimbot FOV setting. Your aimbot’s FOV will determine the forward angle in which it works, so if your aimbot FOV is set to 100 degrees, it will lock on to enemies within a 100-degree cone in front of you.
Making sure that you have a limited aimbot FOV will ensure that you don’t end up doing anything weird like turning around 180 degrees and killing an enemy that you couldn’t have known was there.
Rust servers are like small communities, and word spreads fast through them, so if you make people think that you’re hacking, you’ll likely end up getting banned pretty soon. Be sure to keep your hacking low-key and if people start accusing you of hacking, you’ll want to take it easy with the cheats for a little bit.
When hackusations pop up, you’ll want to switch over to cheats that other players can’t confirm that you’re using. For example, if someone accuses you of using an aimbot, stop using it for a little while and switch over to an ESP to ensure that you still have an advantage without a chance of getting banned.
Remember that there are two different ways to get banned from Rust. Server bans are a little less serious than game bans but they still will never allow you to access a particular server again. If you have a community of friends on a server or if you have made a lot of progress on it, you likely won’t take too well to a ban.
However, if something like anti-cheat catches you hacking in Rust, you’ll be permanently banned from accessing the game, and your computer hardware may even end up getting banned. To make sure that this doesn’t happen, we’d highly recommend using an HWID spoofer when you hack in Rust.
If you don’t want to get in trouble, another option is to switch servers entirely. While this might mean giving up your friends and your progress, it also means that you won’t get caught cheating, which can potentially increase your chances of being banned from Rust entirely.
