Best ARK PVE Server

“Voted best ARK PVE Server since 2019”

Looking to try surviving in the brutal RUST world without PVP and the toxicity that comes with it? Maybe you like PVP but want to learn the ropes of survival in the harsh RUST world first. Either way, Salty Zombies has got you covered. Our RUST PVE Server makes it impossible to kill other players, and if someone tries to raid your base, they will automatically lose their health and die. However, there are still plenty of NPCs, and wild animals that are more than willing to take you down, not to mention this is a RUST Zombie server, where zombies will come out at night and kill you. So good hunting!

Welcome To Salty Zombies AEK PVE Server

RUST has an excellent survival and base-building system. Surprisingly for a pure bread PVP game, you wouldn’t think the developers, known as Face Punch, would have created such elaborate and in-depth game mechanics. 

RUST PVE offers a decent food and farming system and a massive 3 tier tech crafting structure. There are also vehicles dotted around the map you can repair and take back to your base to upgrade and customize. There is also an elaborate electricity and resource management system. On our Rust PVE server, we have added a lot of mods to help keep the server running and keep you entertained. You will find we added lots of events, zombies, POIs, more NPCs with their own base, and customization of the vanilla events. So there is plenty of things for you to do, fight and defend yourself against.

PLEASE NOTE: Even though this is an ARK PVE Server and players can not damage your base, they will still try to find other means of getting inside and stealing your stuff or mess around with your sleeping body. Yes, this is against the rules, and we will know who it is and ban them. However, we will not replace any lost or stolen items. So make sure your base is secure, including from the roof and windows. Lock up all your boxes, all your doors etc.

          Checkout our RUST PVE Server Events

          We have added additional events that happen throughout the day. Each one contains rewarding loot. However, they are not easy, you will be in a fight for your life, and the only true way to succeed is to team up with other members of the server. We will be adding many more events soon to the RUST PVE Server, so stay tuned.


          Every so often, you will hear an announcement of an armoured train incoming. Once this event starts, you will see the train on the map as a red circle going around the tracks. There are 3 types of trains, easy, medium and hard. Kill the driver to stop the train and prepare for a fight.


          When this event starts, you must go to the base marked on the map. Inside the base is a wounded NPC (The General). You must defend him at all costs. Go to the laptop and start building defences, then call for the evac helicopter for the General. When you do, waves of zombies will attack the base.


          When the event starts, you will see on the map a red marker of the convoy travelling along the road. You must head over there and fight the escort of 2 Bradleys and numerous NPCs that will attack you on sight. Make sure not to destroy the loot container in the middle that their escorting.

          ARK PVE Tutorial Videos

          ARK is an in-depth game with lots of content. On the Salty Zombies ARK PVE Server, we have all 12 maps in 1 cluster so that you can move in between them all. However, completing all 12 maps would take a solid 3 months with lots of new content. So below are some videos to help you with the new content. 

          Follow the stream team

          Watch the streams live on Twitch

          Namsaknoi is a big fan of PVP games, especially survival ones like RUST. However, he does like the PVE survival system that RUST gives you. That’s why he launched the RUST PVE Server. You can watch him stream his RUST gameplay on his Twitch. You can also watch the other members of the Twitch stream team play the various games we host. They are all big fans of zombie games. That’s why we have Zombies on our RUST PVE server.
