Rust Update March 2023 – Wipe Time and Content Update

Time to restart your base.

If you’re looking to hop onto servers as soon as Rust servers wipe, we don’t blame you. Getting a head start as soon as Facepunch force wipes is the key way you’ll snowball. As is the case every month, Rust servers will have a forced wipe on the first Thursday of the month.

Rust Update March 2023 Wipe Time

According to the official Rust Twitter, Rust’s monthly wipe will occur on March 2, 2023, at 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. GMT. This will wipe your progress, items, and buildings. Just as with every forced wipe, a server downtime of around 1-2 hours is expected. 

To view some of the changes coming with the March wipe, see below.
