share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Screen tearing can occur in any game, including Rust.

It's a game that usually requires mid to high hardware, and even then, there could be a higher chance of screen-tearing.

Yet if this happens to you, you can do something to fix it at some point. And by doing so, you can play Rust at a smoother rate.

Here are some ways to fix screen tearing while playing Rust.

Fix screen tearing by using vsync

The 'VSYNC' feature could be your ally to fix the screen tearing.

As seen in the Steam community forums, many players suggest that 'VSYNC' could help you fix the screen tearing issue while playing Rust.

Games that are being run on a 'windowed borderless setting' could automatically use the 'VSYNC' option through the traditional Windows settings.

When you're playing Rust in full screen, make sure to check the in-game settings, but also make sure to go to the 'Control Panel' and enable the 'VSYNC' feature if it hasn't been activated.

Fix screen tearing by making sure your screen has a good frame rate

If the 'VSYNC' option is already enabled and some screen tearing still remains, check if your monitor is applicable to run Rust .

Screen tearing could occur if you are running the game at a different frame rate compared to the refresh rate of your monitor.

A 60 FPS limit should be enough for Rust, but even if it's a bit lower, running it at this limit could still prevent screen tearing.
