Best Rust Guns

While it is possible to defend your base using only a bow, you should work towards obtaining a significant armory. This will provide a huge advantage for your defenses, allowing you to use whatever weapon you need for the situation at hand.

These guns are not easy to obtain though, you’ll need to loot it off a corpse or spend days struggling to find the required parts. With base damage of 60, each crossbow shot will hit unarmored targets like a truck.

Requiring a tier 2 workbench, 10 high-quality metal, 100 wood, a spring, and SMG body, Thompson's are pretty easy to acquire. All shotguns can do this but the pump variant is much better, as it has a faster fire rate, holds more rounds, and is simple to craft.

Possessing insanely high damage, range, and accuracy, it’s a sniper’s wet dream. Unfortunately, sub-machine guns have issues in Rust as they tend to be out-performed at all but close to medium range.

However, the MP5A4 is nothing to turn your nose up at, you can craft it yourself so it’s a good medium-tier weapon until you can reach the higher entries on this list! Introduced far more recently than many of the other weapons on this list, the Spas-12 is a powerful semi-automatic shotgun that can cover entire areas in buckshot.

It has weaknesses, of course, high recoil makes it difficult to land multiple shots. Of course, such an awesome weapon is really hard to get hold of as it’s only found in crates, airdrops, and attack helicopters.


Lower damage over time than the draftable sniper but you’re more likely to hit your shots at range. The Assault Rifle, otherwise known as the AK, is easily one of the best all-round weapons in the entire game.

Its potency in combat is almost unrivaled, with high damage & rate of fire allowing it to perform at all ranges. Unlike most other late-game weapons, the crafting cost is reasonable and shouldn’t bear too much weight on your resources.

I’ll first point out the fact you can only get this gun from an attack helicopter’s remains making it the fourth weapon on the list that you can’t craft. The downsides are its high reload time and exceptional recoil but these are barely a factor to a decent player.

For up to date statistics on item stats, please check out This fine pistol features the ability to blow a hole in the guy in front of you, maybe, sometimes, eventually.

I would hold on to this guy for everyday jaunts in the early game. If you have the funds, I'd recommend this gun as a helpful upgrade to the Hokey and a reliable peacemaker.

Slow but effective at close range, this gun has become a favorite of sneaky Newman's everywhere. This popular gun is a bit of an orphan… Not powerful enough to use as a primary weapon for many players, but it’s also far more accessible for most.

Similar to the Legacy favorite the P250, this gun is the sidearm of choice for many Rust players. With low Him cost and high accuracy you can drop even geared enemies in short order with a few well-placed shots.

One of the newest guns in Rust, the Python Revolver is a beast that is set to make its mark! Loud and flashy, this gun packs a punch at the expense of fire rate and capacity.

The Thompson has the second fastest rate of fire in the game and arguably the best zoom when looking down the sights. That being said, it is not as powerful nor does it have the range the Assault Rifle does however if you want some suppressive fire this baby can do a number on the opposition (until you have to reload).

If you know how to harness this beast it can be just as deadly as an AK in most situations. You can aim down the sight (mind the wobble), a loud crack when you fire and it kills your enemies dead in their tracks.

Inexpensive compared to the AK, I'd highly recommend moving one of these to the top of your crafting queue. Now you might have heard of this gun before, commonly called the AK.

The sound makes your heart drop right out of your chest. Oh, yes I'm talking about the, gas powered, 30 round clips, 5.56 NATO cartridge using, Assault Rifle.

Accurate with incredible stopping power using a 12 Gauge Slug The pellet spread from this bad boy is super tight and can deal consistent damage much further than the water pipe.

Great for burning down wood structures You can basically burn shit down with this, light up the night, and become a beacon for counter-raiders everywhere.

Higher resource cost vs. Thompson or Custom SMG Aesthetically pleasing, has a sweet equip animation, and it does have skins.

Well, it's an automatic weapon, it can't be crafted, it doesn't have any skins, and it's not as awesome as the AK. Durable with fast fire rate, and impressive damage this pocket cannon is sure to be the envy of your friends... or enemies.

This low tier weapon fire’s really quick, but doesn’t pack much of a punch. The Nail gun can be crafted for just metal frags and scrap, and holds 16 nails at a time (which are also inexpensive).

It’s great for finishing off enemies in close quarters, but if you try sniping with it, you’re going to have a bad time. Boasts a quicker reload rate and higher magazine size over the Bolt action rifle with less bullet drop at a longer range.

Slower rate of fire over the Bolt Action Rifle, can not be crafted. This formidable sniper rifle is very capable of long range destruction with low bullet drop rate over a longer range with the sacrifice of a slower firing rate.

The rifle packs more of a punch over the semi rifle with a higher round capacity you can lay down sustained damage, although you better have good aim because the slower rate of fire means no panic shots. The Multiple grenade launcher is a versatile AOE weapon capable of clearing congested hallways with The grenades, laying down covering smoke to escape those pesky roof campers or using the shotgun rounds to quickly dispose of the naked grubs.
