Due to the very nature of Rust it is impossible to have rules which cover every scenario; therefore, this list is non-exhaustive. All players should be respectful of others and apply common sense – remember that gaming is meant to be fun!

Abusive players may be banned from the server without notice.

MAXIMUM GROUP SIZE
There is a limit of 3 players in a group. Players found to be exceeding this limit will be banned until the next wipe.

BANS
Players with any historical VAC Bans on their accounts are not permitted to play on The Rusty Spoon and will be removed without warning.

HACKING / CHEATING / EXPLOITING
All are strictly forbidden. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes exploiting game mechanics and bugs. If the developers didn’t intend for you to be able do something – don’t do it.

REAL LIFE THREATS
Aggressive behaviour and ‘banter’ is all a part of Rust – but there is a line. Do not cross it!

TOXIC BEHAVIOUR
Please apply common sense and remember the server is for all players to enjoy. Spamming chat and camping coastlines to repeatedly killing new players are examples of what would be considered toxic behaviour.

CHAT
Homophobic, racist, and other offensive slurs are absolutely forbidden. You will be banned.

Do not spam or advertise in chat.

Do not get drawn into arguments which could escalate into something which might result in sanctions against you. Report it, and remember you can temporarily hide the chat or log off for a while.

IMPERSONATION
Do not change your name to impersonate Admins or other players.
