Anyone who has been a fan of Call of Duty throughout the years knows the map Rust. It is famous for its small stature and close quarters combat. It has also been a map where people love to play each other 1v1. Let me give you a little tour throughout the history of the map and how it has changed and evolved throughout the different games it has been in.
It first appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, where it rose to fame for being the smallest map in the game and the first time a small map had a ton of elevation for players to use. It also had a lot of cover which players enjoyed.
It next appeared in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Rust was not actually in the game, but if you went to the background of Compound, a map that was added in the third DLC, you could see the map. This was just a cool little Easter Egg the developers put in for fans of the map.
The next game where Rust was actually a map was in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The map was called Excess but had the same basic layout and structure. There were some differences though. The map was larger and had even more cover. This was a solid map, not as good at the original Rust, but I used to have a ton of fun playing it back in the day.
The last time Rust was in the game it was in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019). The map was nearly identical to the MW2 version, but it of course had better graphics. There was also a little crawl space added to the map that allowed players to go under a structure that they were not able to go under before in the original.
I have actually enjoyed this map in every game it has been in. The developers have always done a good job keeping it playable and not toxic. Well done to them. What is your favorite version of Rust?
