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.
