Call of Duty®: Mobile Map Snapshot: Rust
Whether you’re an old Rust pro or you’re playing this map for the first time, we’ve got the strategies for your posse to take over this town.
Rust is a small sized map set in an oil yard in the desert. The large central tower overlooks a field of pipes, fuel, shipping containers, and other industrial features. The tower’s top platform offers a near total view of the map below and because of that is such a highly valued power position.
To the south, a barricade and fuel depots offer bunched up cover where CQB shines. Learn the layout here to cut off enemy movement in a vital part of the map.
Players with SMGs and shotguns can take out careless runners in an instant as they weave between cover near the tower or the fuel depot. It’s almost always better to move more meticulously through the map, from cover to cover. Rust is small, and with constant pressure from the ground and the tower, you want to minimize as many sight lines on your character as possible.
Once you’ve seen the myriad sight lines available to players on the tower, you’ll be better prepared to defend your own tower position and to better survive on the ground.
Consider using an assault rifle in your first matches for a versatile attacking option that performs well throughout the map. If you gravitate toward close quarters areas, switch to an SMG or shotgun; if you’re set on dominating from the tower, add a holographic sight to an assault rifle or LMG, or go all in as a sniper.
Scorestreak Field Guide
Use the Hunter Killer Drone for a low-cost attack that’s great for fire and forget actions against enemies in the tower. You’ll decimate the enemy as they attempt to fight off attacks from so many angles.
If you’re more defensive minded, try the Counter-UAV to scramble the enemy mini-map and the SAM Turret for robust anti-air support. The combination of reduced intelligence and aerial denial will put your enemies on their backfoot as they try to cope with your arsenal.
Let’s dig into the objective modes on Rust: Domination and new this season, Capture the Flag. The Domination flags are all on the ground floor, spaced around the tower and close enough that they may change hands many times throughout a match. Play aggressively on the ground until you’ve got two flags and then pull back into a defensive position.
10 Tips Rust has been around for a long time, but don’t be discouraged if you’re coming in fresh. 9. Get that throwing arm in shape. The top tower platform is small in size, meaning a good Grenade throw can easily clear out a pesky enemy sharpshooter.
