Rust Admin Command List

Rust Admin Commands 

You can bring up the command prompt with 'F1'


Navigation

Rust offers quite a selection of admin commands. Hit Control+F on your keyboard to search through the lists.

To use these commands, you must have auth level 2, or admin authentication. We show you how to become admin within our Rust New Server Startup Guide - Becoming A Server Administrator.

Note - Sometimes inventory.give or inventory.giveto commands do not operate as they should. This is due to an Oxide Mod Permissions error. This can be fixed easily, with one line of code, by following our guide on the matter. Inventory.giveto Bug - a Simple Fix
