When playing Rust, a large part of the game is exploring the large world to get the best loot. Sometimes, server owners will prefer to have a customized map in order to have control over the biomes and monuments that appear. Whether it’s to have a barren landscape or as many locations as possible, with Apex Hosting, you are able to upload a custom map to your Rust server. Today, we will show you how to set one on your server to appear in-game!
There are many locations online to download a custom map. Whether you are using a site to download a free map or purchasing a custom-made one, ensure it is a “.map” file for this to work.
In order for the map to work, you will need to upload the .map file to a file hosting site such as Dropbox.

With that, your server should now be running your custom map! When Rust maps are often randomized and never the same, it sometimes helps to have a map that is always the same, even after a world wipe. This can create areas that players fight for and make the experience more interesting overall.
