About Rust Depot Downloader

This script will install a Rust Server or Client on your Windows machine using SteamDB Manifest IDs. All files are downloaded through SteamCMD.
This script will combine all required client or server files into one specified location. That means no manually combining files to have a complete set.


How Do I Find the Version I Want?

You can review the Facepunch Devblog, which will have important dates that different versions of the game were released. You can take these dates over to SteamDB to find the corresponding Manifest IDs that you want.

Navigate to SteamDB. Determine whether you are downloading client files or server files.
Client: https://steamdb.info/app/252490/depots/
Server: https://steamdb.info/app/258550/depots/

Click on the Common and Windows 64 depots and locate the Manifest IDs that you want. For example, May 5th, 2022 (Old Recoil) has the following Manifest IDs:

Client (Common): 5939934877855656786
Client (Windows 64): 5702227544774217577

Server (Common): 8568126655709130498
Server (Windows 64): 7513979545449517167

How To Use

Right click on the RustDepotDownloader.ps1 file and choose "Run with PowerShell" Follow the listed prompts. If you do not input Manifest IDs, it will use the default Old Recoil ones listed above.

This is not a way to download Rust for free. The server installation will allow anonymous install, however the client files of the game require Steam Authentication. All files are downloaded directly through Steam's servers.
