The RUST Achievements Guide
RUST achievements are similar to real-world trophies, except they are in the form of a digital badge. Like trophies, RUST achievements can be showcased as part of a Steam profile. This allows other people to view an individual player’s progress for a given game.
Steam also provides a RUST global gameplay stats page, which displays each achievement and the percentage of all players that have achieved it. Some competitive RUST players see achievements as a bragging right and strive to unlock all available badges. For other players, achievements are a way of showing and obtaining a higher level of game completeness.
When were achievements introduced
RUST achievements were originally introduced by Facepunch developer Garry Newman, in the Devblog 171 update. Garry sought to use achievements as a form of an in-game tutorial.
The intention of the tasks is to encourage and teach. Not to set arbitrary “collect 50,000 stone to unlock achievement” goals.

Since Devblog 171, newer RUST updates have continued to introduce achievements.
How to get RUST achievements?
Obtaining RUST achievements is fairly simple, but there are no specific instructions for new or veteran players concerning their requirements. Simply follow these steps:
- Authenticate and connect to Steam
- Connect to an official Facepunch RUST server
- Perform the achievement’s requirements
Once complete, the Steam achievement will unlock within a minute. A small pop-up toast alert will appear in the bottom right screen. Once this has occurred, the achievement should now be associated with the Steam account.
