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!

The RUST PVE Servers are forced wiped on the first Thursday of every month.

What is a forced wipe? The first Thursday of every month is when Facepunch updates its game. This forces every RUST Server in the world to be reset and updated to the new version. Our RUST PVE Servers follow this same wipe schedule.

Welcome To Salty Zombies RUST 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 a RUST PVE Server and players can not damage your base, they will still try to find other means of getting inside and stealing your stuff. Yes, this is against the rules, and we will know who it is and ban them. However, we will not replace the stuff stolen. So make sure your base is secure, including from the roof and windows. Lock up all your boxes, all your doors and your tool cupboard.

RUST PVE Servers Locations


We started our RUST PVE Servers in the USA. Since most of our gaming community lives in the States, it would have made sense to get a RUST server there. Was started with just the 1 RUST PVE Server, then expanded into PVE/PVP server and hopefully soon a full No Raid PVE RUST Server


After the success of our RUST PVE Servers in the USA, we noticed many Europeans were joining our servers despite living on the other side of the world. So to ease the pain of the latency, we opened up RUST PVE Servers in Europe. Both the USA and EU RUST PVE Servers are Identical.

RUST PVE Servers in ASIA

Our RUST PVE Server in Asia will be coming soon, so stay tuned.

Let’s GO

Our RUST PVE Server Mods

These mods are auto download on server entry

XP System

Our RUST PVE Servers has an XP system. So everything you do will give you XP, and once you got enough XP will get Skill points you can spend by typing /XP and applying them to many different skills.

Night Zombies

To increase the PVE element, we added zombies to our RUST PVE Server that come out when the sun goes down. This makes the nighttime far more dangerous. The zombies will be set on fire when the sun comes up and die like vampires. We are one of the free RUST PVE Servers with Zombies

Boss Mosters

If the NPC were not hard enough, you now have to deal with Boss Monsters that roam the map. These guys are tough, so don’t go near them until you are fully geared up with some friends. 


We have added a backpack for our donors. Tier 1 gets you a 12-slot backpack and you get +6 slots for every level of donor tier you are.

Faster Smelting & Recycling

We have increased the pace at which oil and ore stones are smelt. This is to speed up the unnecessary delays in getting things done. As a result, the smelting is 2 times faster than usual.


There are a huge variety of Kits on our RUST PVE servers. Some are 1 time only and others have a cool down, to access these kits just type /Kit

Stacking Mod

To make looting more enjoyable, we decided to increase the stacking size of many items so your inventory doesn’t get so full so quickly. As a result, most of the loot stacks are 3x some are more.


We have an in-game shop that you can use to buy items. You get 100 coins every 30 minutes, and you also get coins for voting on the server. These coins can be collected over time and are never wiped with the server.

Skin Box

Every player gets access to the Skin Box. You can do that by typing /skin – But the skins will cost you the Salty Coins you earn in the game.

Bradley Guards

If you thought the Bradley was easy, think again. We have added troops that will escort the Bradley to help increase the difficulty of the battle.

Raidable Bases

Our RUST PVE server has NPC bases that you can raid. But, be warned, the NPCs will defend their base very well. There are 5 difficulty levels to the raidable bases. Easy, Medium, Hard, Expert and Nightmare. You will need to do these with a team; they are too hard to solo.

Grid Lines

To add immersiveness to our RUST PVE Servers, we have added the ability for our players to connect to the grid via the powerlines.

Loot Sorting Buttons

For your convenience, we have added loot sorting buttons so you can quickly move items from your inventory to your loot chests. Whether you want to grab all the items, put all the items away, or add the items already in the box.


The server has the RUST+ phone app-enabled. You can connect your phone to our server and control things in your base remotely.

          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.

          Defendable Bases

          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.

          Gas Station

          Two gangs will start chasing each other down on the RUST PVE Server and have a shootout at the Gas Station. You can choose which gang to help or kill them all and take the rewards for yourself.

          Raiding NPC’s

          Want to put your base to the test on our RUST PVE Server? Then you can simply type in chat, /raidme buy [difficulty level]. This will spawn in a bunch of NPCs that will attempt to break into your base and blow up your TC. Once they destroy your TC, they will despawn.

          Armored Train

          Every so often, you will hear an announcement on our RUST PVE Server of an train incoming. Once this event starts, you will see the train on the map as a red circle going around the tracks. You must figure out how to stop it, kill the soldiers and take the loot.


          A falling satellite comes crashing out of the sky into the RUST PVE Server. There is sensitive information that can be recovered from this crash site, but the military has already sent its forces to recover it. You have to take them out and recover the information.

          Armored Convoy

          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.

          Check out these!

          Frequently Asked Questions

          RUST PVE Server FAQ

          What is the purge

          24 hours before the RUST PVE servers are forced wiped. We turn off all PVE protocols so it turns the servers into full PVP. This is an exciting ending that many PVE players love to prepare for in the later parts of the wipe.

          What gets wiped

          Everything except your Salty Coins. So, your base, inventory, XP, Backpacks etc., all get wiped. The only thing that follows is the in-game currency we all know as Salty Coins.

          Help Build our RUST Zombie Servers Community

          Want to help us build our RUST PVE community? The more players we have on the server, the more people you have to team up with, learn from and have a good time with. We also plan to open up other RUST PVE Servers in other parts of the world, like Europe, Asia, the UK and Australia. With all the events mods and RUST Zombies plugins, we think RUST make for an excellent PVE game.

          So please help us build a solid and non-toxic RUST community by going to any RUST forums, you know, Facebook groups and Reddit groups and posting the flyer we made. You can right-click on it and select “Save Image” to store our RUST PVE Flyer on your home computer or phone.
