Ever wonder how to check who's on your rust server? Maybe you're playing with a player who is fun and you want to add them on steam. Maybe that person is hacking and you want to report them. There are a couple of ways to do this, but this guide will show you the easiest way which does not involve mods or plugins. This method can be used on all servers. 

How to view who is online

First while inside Rust, open up your steam overlay by pressing Shift+Tab. Now all you need to do is click "View Players" under "Friends" as seen below. And that's all you need to do! Now you have access to everyone who's online, send them steam messages, add them, report them, do what you have to do.
