What Time Is The Rust Console Server Wipe?

The next Rust: Console Edition server wipe will take place on Thursday, December 30 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM GMT.

Players may experience connection issues before or during the wipe, as servers are usually taken offline briefly for the wipe to take place. According to the official Rust website, downtime is usually 20 minutes before the wipe begins, but this could be longer depending on the developers’ plans.

It is yet to be confirmed what type of wipe will be occurring today, blueprints are usually not wiped unless stated by the developer, so we expect today to be a standard server wipe.

What Is The Rust Console Server Wipe?

If you’ve just picked up Rust: Console Edition over the Christmas period, you might be a little confused as to what the server wipe actually is, or what its purpose is for.

On the final Thursday of every month, the servers for Rust: Console Edition are completely wiped. This allows new players to jump in without worrying about veteran players being overly looted and ready to dominate. The monthly wipe also ensures the servers are kept stable with no connectivity issues.

There are also different types of server wipes, occasionally the developers will wipe all blueprints obtained by the player. For more details, check out the Rust website.
