Best Rust Streamers to Follow

Even though it’s a relative newcomer to the survival gaming scene, Rust has already attracted its fair share of streamers. There are three things that make Rust appealing to streamers:

  • Exciting, fast-paced gameplay where things can go horribly and hilariously wrong in the blink of an eye.
  • Plenty of roleplaying opportunities: start your own post-apocalyptic society with unique laws and customs (bazooka duels anyone?).
  • Support for player-hosted dedicated servers with full modding support.

If you want to start streaming Rust yourself and are looking for some inspiration, here are some of the best-known names from Rust’s growing livestreaming scene.
