The Rust+ App allows you to monitor server activity, view the in-game map live, chat with teammates, and the most important feature, the devices function which allows you to monitor the state of your base. This includes how much upkeep you have on your tool cupboard, adding smart switches to turn on and off devices, as well as setting up smart alarms to tell you when someone is around, in, or attacking your base.

Downloading the Rust+ App

  1. Download the Rust+ app from the Google Play Store if you are using an Android phone or from the App Store if you are using an iPhone.
  2. Once installed, you will have to sign in using your Steam credentials. Even after installing the app from the Play Store or App Store, it is important that you check for updates in the RUST+ app itself.
  3. (Facepunch updates the app more often than the Play or App Stores) 
  4. You can do this by tapping the menu icon in the top left-hand side of the screen, then tap the gear icon, then scroll down to “CHECK FOR UPDATES.” Tap that button to make sure you have the latest version from FacePunch.

Enabling the Rust+ App on your server

  1. Open your Rust server hosting server or join your desired server. Once you are in-game, press the escape key. In the menu on the left, click on the RUST+ setting.


  2. A box will open displaying the server name and the status of the App on that server. It should say “Not enabled for this server.” Now click on the green “PAIR WITH SERVER” button. It will display “LOADING” Then the status will display “Enabled for this server.” Press escape to return to the game.


  3. Now click on the green “PAIR WITH SERVER” button. It will display “LOADING” Then the status will display “Enabled for this server.” Press escape to return to the game.

Pairing the Rust+ App on your phone.

  1. After you’ve clicked “PAIR WITH SERVER” in the previous step, you will get a notification on your phone if you are not in the app, tap the notification to open Rust+. 
  2. Once the app opens you will be shown a “PAIR SERVER” screen. Now tap the green button in the bottom right corner marked “PAIR SERVER”

Conclusion

This completes the pairing setup between your Rust+ App and the Rust server hosting server you are currently playing on. You can also pair with multiple servers. 

Now whenever you are offline, and you are killed, you will get a notification. You can now also see map information, days since the last wipe, type of map, teammates online, as well as live map info, team chat, paired in-game devices, and Rust News and Updates.
