Rules, Guidelines, and Policies
- Players are expected to use the in-game report system (press the F7 key while in Rust) AND use our Discord ticketing system (#open-a-ticket channel in Discord.GG/lonewolf) to provide additional information to our staff team when reporting players.
- Under no circumstances can a player on Lone Wolf servers call out cheaters or teamers in-game using global chat. Once a player is “called out” – they know they are being watched and will discontinue their behavior. This prevents our Staff Team from monitoring the activity, collecting evidence, and progressing the investigation.
- Due to this, players who call out teamers or cheaters in chat will be temporarily muted for 24H (first time). We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in effectively reporting and helping us promptly remove these kinds of negative players.
- Note: Using the F7 report system will trigger an automatic in-game recording of the reported player which is immediately sent to our Staff Team for review. This is an instrumental component of our investigations.
Please see our Solo Only Guidelines below for more specific information and examples on what is/is not considered teaming.
- This is strictly a Solo Only server. We do not allow any situation where two players can coordinate/collude for an advantage over a truly solo player. Teams and alliances are not allowed and will result in a ban.
- You must kill on sight (KOS) during raids/counter-raids, at monuments , heli/cargo events, air drops, and in "hot zones".
- Hot zones are the immediate area around player vs. player combat situation.
- Once PvP combat is initiated, the immediate area is considered a hostile hotzone and KoS rules are in effect.
- In any KOS situation – you must engage in PvP with everyone in the hotzone, OR, you must flee immediately.
- Trades must be relatively fair/equal. See below for more details.
Solo Only Guidelines - What is Not Allowed?
- Sharing/Donating/Trading any base to/with another player – even if you are quitting. Once you seal a base it is considered yours and falls within this rule.
- Sharing authorization on tool cupboards, code locks, turrets, and sharing keys for key locks is prohibited.
- Donating or giving away items. It MUST be a fair trade/exchange of items. No lopsided trades (some charcoal for an M2, etc). We give a very wide range for what is acceptable – if you’re even remotely trying to keep the trade fair we won’t bother you.
- Counter-raiding a base and letting any players in the area live.
- Services/slaving of any kind including taxis.
- Placing down a bag for another player, for any reason, as well as knowingly allowing a bag to be placed on your behalf.
- Two or more players all willingly riding in a vehicle together.
- Current ( revised May 2023 ): Looting a player and then giving the loot back at a later time or in a different location. Take what you want, immediately drop what you do not want, and move on. Returning loot is now allowed as long as it is immediate.
Looting a player and then giving the loot back. Leave it on their body or take it and go. Once you take it, it is yours.
- Donating or sharing raid loot (or decayed base loot) to other players that show up to the raid or thereafter.
- Forming any kind of agreement with another player during a raid or any other situation covered by the KOS rules.
- Roaming, looting monuments and/or decayed bases together, including completing puzzles together.
- Entering another players base or compound for ANY reason besides raiding or other aggressive actions. Conversely, willingly letting a player inside your base or compound for ANY reason – except to trap and immediately kill them.
- Using video, voice, or out-of-game text communication in collaboration with other players to gain an unfair advantage.
Final Word: Players are expected to obey the rules and spirit of Solo Only gameplay at all times. If at any time, multiple players coordinate to change the dynamic of gameplay to create an environment where their coordination creates a real and direct benefit over a solo player without such cooperation - that gameplay is subject to evaluation, fair warning, and potential action by Staff Members.
Solo Only Guidelines - What is Allowed?
- Being generally friendly to others in the community. This is encouraged.
- Agreements to be friendly with your neighbors. However - you may never defend your neighbors base or otherwise break our Solo Only rules and guidelines.
- Trades must be made in realtime, must be item(s)-for-item(s), one transaction where possible, and must be relatively fair/equal. This applies to all types of trading: drop trades, shopfront trades, vending machines.
- If you encounter another player, you are not required to Kill-On-Sight unless it is a raid/decayed base/monument/event/hotzone (ex: Bradley).
- Talking to other players in global chat, including calling out booms, base locations, etc.

- No excessive toxicity. Trash talk and profanity are allowed. However, you may not engage in language/behavior that creates an overly toxic environment within the community. Some examples: making real-life threats of harm, glorifying/threatening sexual assault, doxing community members, repeatedly and flagrantly harassing other players/staff, telling community members to commit suicide.
- Be a good person, don’t cross the line with your communications, and you will not have any issues. This is common sense for 99.9% of humanity, but it needs to be spelled out for the 0.1%.

You will be permanently banned, your account will be marked with the threat you made, and we will share your information with our automated network and within our Rust Owner groups. You will be blackballed by the Rust community and depending on the threat we will (and have in the past) engage local law enforcement and/or pursue legal action.
- Intentionally lying to harm the reputation of Lone Wolf Rust will result in your permanent removal from the community. Honest criticism/complaints will never be silenced and is highly encouraged.
