Rust - RCON Server Commands

This is one way you can use the RCON via your control panel for your server. The other method is you can use these commands in-game.

Rust Web Console / Web RCON
Rust Web RCON Login Page


Using commands with player names, can sometimes only require a portion of the name. For example, you can write "John" instead of "John Doe" in some cases.
Use the " " tags to teleport to players or give yourself items that have a space in the name. For example, "Metal Door".

This is not a complete list, you will find more command in the official Rust documentation. Full listing can be found here: Rust Fandom Server Commands
