Want to grab some fancy Rust skins without spending a dime? It’s actually possible – here’s how!
How to easily get free Rust skins (5 legit Methods)

Rust skins can get super expensive, mainly because there aren't many of them. However, getting skins for this game is not that difficult, and you can actually collect an inventory of skins worth several hundred dollars without investing a single cent. And today, we’ll show you how to do it!

In-Game Skin Drop System

Let's start with a method familiar to virtually all Rust players — skin drops. Statistically, for every 100 hours played in Rust, you will receive one random cosmetic item. This may seem like a lot but: 

  1. If you are an active player, these 100 hours will pass rapidly.
  2. There are many Idle servers where you can just keep on logging hours and waiting for potential items.

Of course, the 100 hours is just statistical, sometimes it will be more or less. To sum up — just play, and free Rust skins will come by themselves.

Offer Wall Websites

What exactly are offer wall websites? Some call it the smallest e-commerce on the market — these are basically services or apps that reward us for performing specific tasks. These types of tasks include, for example, watching a video, completing a survey, or downloading a game. 

We recommend two such websites in particular:

The most popular site of its kind, and the absolute best of all in our opinion.

Freecash Free Rust Skins

Very user-friendly interface, and even if you encounter any problems, you can count on the support staff (which we checked ourselves in our Freecash review). You can even receive your first rewards minutes after signing-up.

The earning system on Idle-Empire is pervasive; you can even collect rewards passively, e.g., by using your computer for cryptocurrency mining. What's more, the site offers a sort of leaderboard system, where the people who have earned the most coins in a particular period are additionally rewarded.

None of these sites offer free Rust skins directly, so the rewards you will be interested in are:

  • Steam gift cards. Put the funds from the gift card straight into your Steam Wallet and use them to buy skins on the Steam Community Market.
  • CS:GO skins. Sell such skins on the Steam Community Market or any other online marketplace (such as Dmarket or Skinport) and buy Rust skins with the proceeds. Be sure to also check out our article on the topic: Where to sell CS:GO skins?

Gambling Websites

Another interesting option to get free Rust skins is to use gambling sites such as RustChance. These types of services often offer a sign-up bonus of sorts, allowing you to play a few games for free.

And you know how it is in gambling — if it is your lucky day, you may increase the value of your Steam inventory by several hundred dollars or more.

Twitch Prime

And we can't forget about one of the more popular methods of getting in-game goodies for free – Twitch Prime. Well, half free, as you have to be an Amazon Prime member.

Still, you can always go for a free trial and claim your free goodies to your inventory. And they won't disappear, even if you cancel the subscription immediately. To see which items you can claim with this method, go to Facepunch Studio's Amazon Prime website.


The last way of getting free Rust skins we want to suggest to you are all kinds of giveaways. Apart from giveaways organized by the Rust community, there is one website worth mentioning — vLoot.

Free Rust Skins Giveaways

It's a place where you can enter several giveaways at once, and pretty much all of them are Steam-related. Even if you don't believe in the fairness of online giveaways and your chances of winning — what's the harm of trying?

These were all methods to get Rust skins for free. None of them require anything more than your time, and the reward can be really worth it. And honestly, these methods might also be handy for you even if you're not into Rust, as you can sell all these free skins and make some profit (How to sell Rust skins?). Thus, we wish you good luck, both in your grind of free skins and your constant fight for survival!
