How to Optimize Your Rust Gaming Experience

SteelSeries Moments and Engine GameSense are now fully integrated with Rust.

What is SteelSeries Moments?

If you're not familiar, Moments is our new game clipping app. It allows you to easily take clips, edit, and upload to all your favorite platforms. You don't need to go around and mess with other third party apps or worry about exporting and uploading, it's all there.

What is SteelSeries Engine?

Engine is our app which allows you to edit all your hardware settings such as DPI, product RGB, and other basic hardware settings. It also includes a feature called GameSense which allows us to connect RGB on products to specific games.

Both Moments and Engine are in our software platform called GG and best of all, it's free to download. Check it out here.

And if you play Rust, here's why your fight for wilderness survival just got more exciting.

To make sure that the GameSense is working:

  1. Launch Rust

  2. Open up GG → Engine → Apps

  3. Scroll down to Rust towards the bottom

  4. Make sure it's turned to "ON"
