BNR: Season 4 Preview

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

Season 4 will be coming very soon. I know this month has been kind of slow with people coming in and out of different games. Since this has been a weird month, it feels alot slower with the break between with GDC. Next season we’re going to try to spice it up and keep Brave New Rust fast and fresh. 4/7/2016…

Here is a Preview of Season 4 of US Brave New Rust. New 4k Map and Changes… 4072016.png

BP Wipe – It’s been a long time since we had a BP Wipe, and it looks like the level up system will come later. So expect a new fresh start for US Brave New Rust…since AU Brave New Rust it still new, there will not be a BP wipe for AU.

Bi-Monthly Map Wipes – All Buildings will be wiped, but were expected to have more people come back and that requires more room. Expect a bigger 4k map and a earlier wipe, it will be two weeks wipe, instead of a month. So expect more action and more people to move next door to you…

All Chat – All Chat will change to local chat, this is due to the abuse of salty users and cyber bullying. Brave New Rust should be a place of fun, not a playground for dirty laundry or toxic behavior…Therefore any users trolling in local chat will know that they are also in close proximity of bullets…

Rads Will Be On – I have to test if this works, but the idea is to bring back the Rads back on the Map. This will forces more strategy of building and make landmarks different…

New Players, New Clans – I’m sure with every season, we will grow bigger so I appreciate everyone contributing by telling people about the server and how nice it is. I appreciate all the great feedback. 🙂

Again, thank you for all the donations I have gotten from several people on the server, your donations help me so much. I put a lot of money and efforts of my own time to produce a good Rust product for anyone to enjoy. Every contribution has helped keep the server up and my time to market Brave New Rust for more players.

If you like what I’m doing for the Rust Community. You can always Donate to BNR!

With your special gift you can ensure that Brave New Rust can always keep growing.

Dev Blog 103 – 3/24

devblog 103

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

Devblog 103 is out and the both US and AU servers are updated.

The community is slowly changing and growing at the same time.

Many have voice many concern on how the server is operating but moving forward, there will be no more harassment on the admin and any decision that is made will be final. Arguing or disrespecting the Admins or Mods can result to future kicks/ban.

Overall, please treat people with the respect they deserve. Act toxic and aggressive towards the community will get you kicked out of this server.

**Ignorance is not an excuse…you will be kicked and banned. **

So please, treat everyone with respect, especially the community.

Please report to me for any harassment or cheaters. Thank you all for your cooperation.

BNR: Server Update 3/20

The Tempered AK

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

Garry is currently still at GDC and there has been no update for the game of Rust. Other than that, the Brave New Rust community has been popping.

Even with the slow influx of people, coming and leaving. The server still average 25 users on peak nights. On a slow night roughly 10-15 user. Also I notice more clans have been staying on later playing around the 12am-4am shifts. Also the server always seems to have users 24/7 now compare to last season. So in all fairness, the server is still growing and steadily growing with different people all around the world.

Shoreline Village – AU Brave New Rust

The AU Brave New Rust server is steadily growing too. There’s been a steady bit of traffic, but definitely seems like a fun new server to start over if your tired of US Brave New Rust. Overall, thank you for all the new folks from the Down Under for joining the community. Just please spread the good news down there. Cheers from the US.

Thanks again, for being part of the community, I’m going to steadily be going to work and popping in and out very soon. My move out of California is coming very soon, so I will continue to do my best to monitor for hackers and potential other issues that goes about on the server.

I appreciate all the reports and I hope to keep the game as clean as possible of cheaters. I suggest for future issues for users to start recording their game play. This will help me investigate any potential users problems remotely and still monitor the servers. Thanks again for all your cooperation.

OBS recording guide coming soon…

Devblog 101: Server Update 3/11

Peace Pipe.pngHi Brave New Rust Community,

It’s Devblog 101, damn Garry trolled me with the whole Devblog 100 and seems like Rust update will be slow this month. I hope they will bring the level up system soon, and I hope that’s when the Developers will have a BP wipe.

The server is coming along very quickly and the server is still growing. Even on a slow night, it looks like we average 15-20 people still.

Garry added some new skins, but my favorite skin I particularly like, is the new Peace Pipe. It doesn’t look pretty, but looks like its part of the Rust Universe. You can purchase it via link store, or if you want one, I can craft you one in the game. Looks legit!

Thanks again for being part of the Brave New Rust community, I hope the server will cap up soon, and if does, I can increase the server cap level if need be.


This weeks challenge is hunting Bears and Wolfs, we know how troublesome these creature do to the nakeds. So person with the most Bears and Wolf kills by the end of the week, get a Rust Skin from me.

Other than that, I hope you have fun, and if there is any problems please message me for any possible hacks or cheating. Other than me checking around for admin stuff, please be stay safe out there.

If you like this server and like to donate , just click on the, “DONATE to BNR” button on the front page. Any donations will go toward bettering the Rust community and pay for the Servers Maintenance. Thank you for your consideration.

BNR: Server Update 3/9

Hi Brave New Rust Community,

It’s has only been almost 1 week into Season 3 of Brave New Rust, and we are already been trading, killing, making alliance, and blindsiding users left and right. It’s been a great week of Rust Drama, and I hope you too are enjoying yourself, having some Vanilla fun.

As an update, the TPK group has been doing their part doing their usual lead greetings to the new members of the Rust community. Trump Towers and Walls are being built. The cool spot to hang out seem to be the Dome, for some 1vs1 PvP action. I lost my helmet on the way to the Dome so still be careful out there in the wasteland.

Every Thursday should be an update, but it looks like Facepunch Studios are using this time to take a break from the game, so right now is a good time to build up and enjoy the game. Also a couple new games are out like Tom Clancy’s The Division, so I’m sure some people are going to be coming in and out. I will keep you posted tomorrow if there are any updates, I’m sure it will probably be an update for more optimization or nothing…

Thanks again for being part of the community, we have grown about 50% in the last couple of months and I thank you for finding this server, and bringing your friends. You guys make the community and there will be more in store for the server, coming soon…

Brave New Rust Season 3 Map

Brave New Rust Season 3 Map
3000×3000 Seed – 3032016

Welcome to the new season of “Brave New Rust”.

I’m sorry for the map change, but Garry seems to wants to make it more optimize with the new default map to 3k vs 4k. Also sounds like he wants us to have more PvP and drama…

So here is at least a copy of the map. I know it’s a bit different, but I’m sure it will bring a new experience to Rust.

Thank you again for joining and your cooperation.

Happy Gathering,

Beacon's Sunset.jpg
Hi Brave New Rust Community,

The “Brave New Rust” Server are up and running.

They are updated with the current Rust Patch and below I will post the changes that Garry and his team made.

Thanks again for being part of this community, and we wouldn’t have a successful community without each and everyone of you. I thank you for everyone’s contribution, whether it was PvP, or PvE.

If you didn’t know the default map has gone smaller, and we are still experience this new Vanilla Rust experience, just like everyone else. It has gone from a 4k map to a 3k map.

So good luck on this month Rust season. I hope you guys have more fun this time around.

If there is any issues of racist remarks, harassment, salty users, or toxic players. Please let me know, I will ban them quicker than I can eat Carne Asada tacos, and that’s pretty damn quick.

I want to keep this server a great Rust experience, so that anyone can feel welcome to come join us. Thank you again “Brave New Rust” Community for making that happen!

BNR: Server Update Prelude 3/2

Sunset at Beacon
Hi Brave New Rust Community,

Looks like they are changing the default map for the servers, so the map will change and have a new experience.

The map will be slightly smaller because they have set the default maps from 4k to 3k for the new patch. Probably more optimization and experimental reasons.

I will get the server updated as fast as I can, and I hope to get server updates will be up around Noon. But only time will tell. I will keep you posted as soon as I know.

Thank you for your cooperation and being part of the “Brave New Rust” Community.

I even made a new banner, I hope you guys like it.
