The Best Rust Skins (Ranked by Popularity)

Over the last couple of years, Rust has become one of the most popular video games on Steam, and considering the fact that it is coming to consoles relatively soon, the Rust player-base will continue to grow. While the survival gameplay elements and the human factor are definitely major reasons for its success, another part is definitely due to the amount of customization options that the game provides. Since there are so many skins to choose from, we have decided to take a look at 15 best Rust skins that you can get, so let’s dive right into it.

The Best Rust Skins

You can buy Rust skins in two different ways:

  • Steam (has its own trading platform)
  • 3rd party services such as DMarket. Because gamers want to trade without fees and easily withdraw money from their accounts (Steam does not provide such an opportunity).

However, you can change that with the Retrowave Bow skin and add some color to it to make it look more interesting and fashionable at least.

9. Atomic LR
