Are you looking for a RUST roleplaying server? Look no further, as Salty Zombies has one of the best and most popular RUST Roleplaying Servers. We have 2 types of RUST Roleplaying servers, a 100% PVE server, where no killing is allowed, and a PVE server with PVP at the major monuments. We also have these Servers in USA, Europe and ASIA. So you are guaranteed to find one that is close to you.

The Story: You were on a cruise caught in a storm, and the next thing you know, you woke up naked on a beach. You look around and discover you are on a mysterious Island. You try to look for other survivors of the cruise when you come across a decaying body with what looks like bullet hole wounds.

You search the pockets to find a notebook. The notebook refers to the strange ongoings of this Island called “Nams Island”. Scientists and military personnel have set up bases to do illegal experiments. The book also notes about strange monsters that come out at night and warns that anyone who doesn’t seek shelter before sundown will not survive the night. 

Will you survive Nams Island?

The RUST Roleplay Servers is forced wiped on the first Thursday of every month.

What is a forced wipe? The developers or RUST update their game on the first Thursday of every month. This forces every RUST Server to reset and update to the new version. Our RUST RP Servers follow this same wipe schedule.

Welcome To Salty Zombies RUST Roleplaying Server

Nams Island was once a prosperous, healthy holiday Island until the military established multiple research facilities. Then, Rumour has it. The local people started to go missing. The people soon realised it wasn’t a coincidence that the disappeared persons began shortly after the military scientists arrived.

The bodies of the missing island people were found in random locations on the island. The bodies looked like they were experimented on like their limbs had been cut off and surgically attached back on. The heads of one missing person were found attached to the body of another.

It was almost like some Frankenstein experiment, and the weirdest part of it all was that these bodies were not discarded or buried. Instead, there were footprints like they were running from something before they finally collapsed. It was as if these Frankenstein-like zombie bodies were alive and functioning… But who would do something like that, and why?

Different Type Of RUST RP Servers

RUST Roleplaying PVE Server

Our 100% PVE RUST Roleplaying Server is one of the more popular servers. It’s a great one for people who are not just into RP servers but also new to the world of RUST. There aren’t many places to learn RUST without waking up the next day to being raided. So this RUST RP server is an excellent place to start.

Press F1 and Copy/Paste the black text Console:

USA PVE: connect
EU PVE: connect

RUST Roleplaying PVE/PVP Server

The next level up from our 100% PVE RUST RP Server is the PVPVE server. In this RUST Roleplaying server, the concept is the same with the crazy scientists and Nams Island, but there is PVP at the major monuments. So you should be careful, as other survivors may track you down and kill you for your goods.

PLEASE NOTE: Even though our RUST Roleplaying Server is PVE and players can not damage your base, they will still try to find other means of getting inside and stealing your stuff. This is against the rules. We will know who it is and ban them. But, we will not replace the property stolen. So ensure your base is secure, including closing up the roof and windows. Also, lock up all your boxes, doors and your tool cupboard.

Let’s GO

Our RUST PVE Server Mods

These mods are auto download on server entry

XP System

The RUST Roleplaying Server has an in-built XP system. It works by giving XP for almost anything you do in RUST. Once you have enough XP, you earn Skill Points, which you can apply to a particular skill set.

Night Zombies

The manic military scientists that did weird experiments on the local population seem to have turned them into night zombies. But not entirely brainless. They are sensitive to light, like vampires. So be careful, and keep an eye on the time. Make sure you are back at your base before nightfall.

Boss Mosters

The mad scientists created some incredible monsters on Nams Island. These monsters have been sent out to find and kill any survivors. You should hunt them down when you are strong enough and be rewarded with Salty Coins.


We have extended your inventory-holding capabilities but adding backpacks. You can obtain bigger backpacks by purchasing ranks.


There are a wide variety of Kits on our RUST RP servers. Some are one-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.


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

Furthermore, if you subscribe to one of our ranks on our RUST Roleplay servers, you can earn more depending on your rank. You also get a discount as a ranked player in the shop. Check out the ranks below for more information on the increased earning percentage and shop discount.

We also understand that not everyone has the time to grind out or play for hours. Some of us have work and family commitments, so we have enabled you to buy Salty Coins for real-world money.

Join The Survivor Ranks

As one of many survivors on Nams Island, it’s up to you to band together, build a team and take on the horrors that lay waiting on the Island. There are 4 different ranks you can choose from, each giving you more quality-of-life perks and benefits. Purchasing a rank gives you that rank on all our RUST servers. Not just the RUST roleplaying Server.

Checkout our RUST RP Server Events

On our RUST Roleplaying server, you must deal with Namsaknoi or Nams for short. The dictator that controlled the island. He occasionally sends out his crew in amour trains to shoot any survivors it sees. You can also catch his team transporting weapons and ammo from one part of the island to another.

You must intercept these convoys, cut off his supply lines, and destroy the armoured train to help the new players survive. Other invents include saving one of your generals from Nam’s zombie henchmen and recovering crucial data from Nam’s crashed satellite. More events are coming to our RUST Roleplay servers.

Nams Armored

The evil dictator Nams transports all the ammunition, food, water and supplies that fuel his army on the Island in an armoured train. Depending on the importance of the items he is transporting, it could be guarded by Bradley turrets, helicopters and heavy soldiers. So it’s up to you to disrupt these supply lines to weaken his forces on the Island by taking out these armour trains and taking the supplies yourself.

Defend the General

One of the Generals of the resistance fighters has been hurt and needs immediate medical evac. The only problem is, the moment you call for help, Nams will know your location and will send an army of monsters to attack you. So you must defend the downed general long enough for the medical helicopter to arrive and take him to safety. You can upgrade the base and the defence and defend him.

Nams Armored

Another way Nams moves his supplies around the Island is via convoy, usually guarded by 2 Bradleys, a Helicopter and numerous armed guards. The convoy always travels along the same road. You will need to set up ambush bases along this route, as the moment you attack the convoy, the guards will jump out and chase you down. Once the Bradleys and guards are dead. The supplies can be taken.

Nams Crashed Satellite

To keep track of all his soldiers and to spy on the enemy. Nams keeps attempting to launch Satellites into space. However, he has yet to succeed, and they keep crashing back to Earth. When they do, they land on the Island, and he sends his soldiers to recover the wreckage and weaponry. You must get to these down Satalites, kill the soldiers guarding them and recover the technology to slow Nam’s progress.

Desdaa is a highly addicted RUST player and one of our most attentive and active RUST moderators.

 The RUST Roleplaying Servers are moderated and cared for by the founder of Salty Zombies, Nams. We also have a few admins and moderators that can help you. Any admin or senior admin can reboot the server if it gets stuck, but you must contact them via the RUST channel in our Discord if there are any issues outside of that.

If your question concerns the game, ask any community member in our RUST Discord or try searching on Google. 95% of people’s game-related questions are answerable by a quick Google search.

Help Build our RUST RP Servers Community

There is strength in numbers. If you want to overthrow the evil dictator Nams from the Island, we must bring more people to our RUST Roleplaying Server. There are plenty of survivors out there. We must bring them together, help them survive the harshness of Nams Island and teach them how to fight.

We must go out there, look for RUST Facebook groups, Rust forms, and Discords and tell everyone to stand together and join us. We have created this promotional poster to catch possible survivors’ visual eye.

We want to build a solid and helpful community, train up a good group of survivors, cut off the supply lines, destroy the train convoys, assassinate Nams high ranking officers and retake the Island. If we don’t… we are doomed!
