Is Rust Down? Here’s how to check Rust server status

Are the servers down?

Occasionally servers for Rust will go down for whatever reason, updates, or broader server issues. If you ever wanted to check the server status for Rust, it's possible but only for official Rust servers. Here's how you can check the server status for Offical Rust Servers. 

How to check official Rust Server status

To check the official Rust server status, you need to view a site such as Downdetector.com. Downdetector is a free tool that players can use that monitor whenever popular games and services such as Rust servers go down. Viewing Downdetector will allow you to check to see if the Rust servers are currently down and if any other users are having issues. You can also check official social media such as the Rust Twitter account for updates on server status.

How to check Console Rust Server status

If you want to check the server status for Rust on Consoles, you can either check Downdetector or go to the official server status page for Rust Console Edition. Another option for Console servers is to check the Rust Console Twitter page.

How to fix Rust Connection errors

If you checked for broader Rust server issues but didn't find any, it probably means any problems you are having with connecting to Rust servers are client-side. That said, you can try to troubleshoot any problems connecting to Rust servers by doing the following:

  • Restart Router
  • Restart Game
  • Restart Console
  • Restart PC
  • Check if the Firewall is blocking the game
  • Verify game files
  • Reinstall Rust
