What Is The Rust Server Wipe?

The official Rust: Console Edition servers are often wiped clean at the end of each month, with weekly wipes sometimes also taking place in between.

Weekly wipes are not always guaranteed, but the final Thursday of every month is certain to bring a fresh wipe. So, what exactly is the purpose of the wipe? Well, the wipe will completely reset all of your progress, existing buildings, and more.

Not only is this to ensure the servers continue to run smoothly, but also allows players to be on an even playing field. Being a new player can be daunting if you jump into a server with players that have been grinding for weeks, maybe even months.

More details surrounding the Rust: Console Edition server wipe can be found on the game’s official website.
