The RUST Gesture Commands

The RUST Gesture command allows players the ability to communicate in-game, using non-verbal movements, known as gestures. Many online games, mainly MMOs (massively multiplayer online), have implemented gestures, such as thumbs up and down that has become commonly known to gamers.

Gestures were officially introduced into RUST with the Chippy Arcade Update on 6/21/2019. There are currently seven gestures in total to use. Each gesture has a unique character animation associated with it.

Each gesture can be used by typing the specific gesture’s command into the F1 console. Alternatively, gestures can be bound to a key. Every time the key bind is used, it will execute the associated gesture command. For example, enter the following into the F1 console to bind the wave command to the m key.

bind m “gesture wave”

To bind additional gestures, you will need to use other keys.
