When it first debuted into Steam’s Early Access program back in 2013, Rust produced a bunch of waves. However, as time progressed, confidence in the MMO survival of Facepunch Studios started to downslide. Well. Right. That is, until lately.
In trying to restore Rust to prominence, streamers have played a major role and that’s something that Facepunch Studios has been keenly aware of. The developer confirmed the inclusion of unique Twitch drops for those watching the game online in a latest Steam upgrade.
Drops are typically restricted to cosmetic products before you get really enthusiastic, but some of them look awesome if you’re one of those people who’s into that type of thing. It’s also important to note that all of these skins will be special to these drops, but you’ll have to check in to several streams here and there if you want to fill out your closet.
Rust’s multiplayer survival game has lately increased in prominence, which has seen a lot of big Twitch streamers switch to it. This has contributed to the streaming platform pairing up for a selection of Twitch Drops with Rust. Rust Twitch drops are pairs of in-game equipment that you can access when your Steam account and your Twitch account are connected.
Your Steam account and Twitch account will have to be connected first. Go to the Twitch Connections page to do this, and in the Steam section, press ‘Link.’ Input your Steam login information from here and your accounts will be related.
If this is completed, to obtain their particular gear, you have to watch the particular streamer for four hours. These drops are only accessible from 10:00 a.m. PT/1:00 p.m. ET to 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. ET between January 7th and January 14th, so you’ll want to hop on them fast! Some of the Twitch streamers that you may consider include Juanguarnizo, Mizkif, IlloJuan, MoistCr1tikal, Alexby11, Rubuis and Aroyitt.
There is also a collection of common Rust Twitch Drops, which you can activate with the Drops Activated tag by viewing any Rust stream. It takes a large amount of time to watch the thing here, then you’ll have to find the time to earn it all.
With the exception of the sofa and hobo barrel, all of these drops enable you to watch streamers with the DROPS tag active for at least 4 hours. Just 2 hours of watch time is required for the sofa, while the hobo barrel needs 8 hours of watch time.
If you’d like to get your hands on their drops, you may need to watch every stream directly, but luckily the Rust site has made it much easier to see when any of them is live.
So now that you know how to earn twitch drop, what are you waiting for? Go now and open up your rust account and get them all. It is very easy and you just have to pay attention to every detail.
