Rust is an open world game with a mix of player vs player (PVP) and player vs environment (PVE) and a portion of the game is building. The community is very special in its own way because they are overly aggressive. In comparing Rust to ARK, they both are very similar, but quite different.
They both have a well-made building mechanic. To succeed in Rust, you get rocks and custom world from other people. My favourite part of Rust is the gathering part because it is hard to grind to make a tier three work bench. It is difficult to gather that much scrap. The best place to get scrap is from the train yard and the launch site. However, the easiest and safest place is the outpost.
Overall, Rust is an entertaining gaming experience which I play whenever my brother is not playing, we are both keen players.
