in Rust

Minecraft Tutorial

 

Overview:

When owning any Rust server, moderation is one of the most important aspects to have. When a player is breaking rules, sometimes it becomes necessary to administer a ban, preventing them from joining the server. Rust is no exception, as you may encounter cheaters or bad behavior on a server, leading you to give a ban. With Apex Hosting, players can be banned directly from our server panel, so today we will show you how to do it!
 

SteamID Ban:

  1. Navigate to the SteamID.io website and search for the desired player’s Steam.
  2. Once found, copy the SteamID64 number.
    Rust Ban ID
  3. Access your Apex server panel, then press the ‘console’ tab on the left.
  4. To ban a player, you will use the following command:
banid [SteamID] [Username] “[Reason]”


 

Rust Ban ID

 
Example: banid 76561198169700921 Daltondorf “Being too awesome”
 

Username Ban:

  1. Access your Apex server panel, then press the ‘console’ tab on the left.
  2. To ban a player through a username, you will use the following:
ban [Username] “[Reason]”


 

Rust Ban User

 
Example: ban Daltondorf “Being way too cool”
 

How to Check the Banlist:

Checking the banlist is quite easy. To check the banlist, enter the following:

banlistex


 

Rust Ban Check

 

How to Unban Players:

Unbanning a player is just as easy. In order to unban a player, simply use:

unban [SteamID64]


 

Rust Unban

 
Example: unban 76561198169700921
 

Conclusion:

With that, you will now have all the information needed to begin moderating players on your Rust server! Whether you are banning players for breaking rules, or simply messing with your friends, you can now ban and unban them at will. This information is good to have on-hand, as you never know when the time will arise. Enjoy your newfound command powers and as always, have fun!
