Like other online games, Rust also requires a fast internet connection to not get spikes in latency, leading to lag and a loss of your sanity as a result. So, in addition to the recommended system requirements for Rust mentioned above, it’s essential that you also have a good and reliable internet connection. Even if the internet connection is fast but drops speed or connection frequently, your game experience won’t be as smooth when playing any online game.
