RUST Abandon Mission Command

The RUST Abandon Mission Command

The RUST abandon mission command is used to quit an active RUST mission by using the in-game console.

This command is available to both players and admins and can be used by pressing the F1 key and opening the in-game console tab. This command is an alternative method for quitting or abandoning an active mission given by one of the many RUST mission-givers.

The same function is available through the user interface. Plays can press the TAB key to open the inventory screen, and in the top right of the screen, the MISSIONS button can be clicked to display active missions. Inside of this UI is the ABANDON MISSION button. Once pressed, it will immediately abandon your active mission, canceling any and all progress made and removing it from the UI entirely. An in-game sound will trigger and the chat will display a message confirming such.

Once this command has been issued, you will have a lock-out timer for requesting the same mission again.

A few practical reasons for using the RUST abandon mission command

  • Quitting your active mission
  • Creating a hotkey and mouse-free way to quit missions
