Twitch Drops

What are Twitch Drops?

Twitch Drops open up a new way to receive free of charge skins by watching streams of your favorite Rust streamers on Twitch. Skins earned on Twitch are account bound and can not be traded or sold. You will need to own Rust on Steam in order to receive the items.

What do you have to do?

All you need to do to be eligible for Rust Twitch Drops is to log into your Twitch account, pair it with your Steam account, set your profile to Online and fulfill the Drop criterias.

To make this step as easy as possible for you, we've setup a dedicated website at to guide you through this process.

  1. You first want to make sure you connect your accounts. To do so click on "CONNECT ACCOUNTS".
  1. Once you've logged into your Twitch/Steam account and successfully connected them, you should be rewarded with a "SUCCESFULLY PAIRED" message.

Thats all you have to do to before you can start earning progress towards your favorite Rust skin .

Which streams you need to watch to receive Rust Twitch Drops?

All Rust streams with the Drops enabled tag will count towards earning drops. However, streamer-specific drops will require you to watch a specific streamer in order to get their drop. All participating streamers are listed on and all active campaigns and their conditions can always be seen on this Twitch page.

Is there any way to check my progress towards the next drop? What if I missed the drop?

You can track your progress on the Twitch Drops Inventory page. If you've missed the Twitch Drop Round or did not make it to the finish line in time, there is no other way to aquire said drops.

Can I earn drops faster or more often by watching more than one channel at a time?

No, you will only be eligible to receive a drop for one active channel at a time. Watching more than one channel simultaneously will not result in more drops.

How long does it take for drops to show up in my Steam inventory?

It can take up to 10 minutes after pressing the Claim button for items to show up in your Steam inventory. If the item does not show up after 30 minutes then your Steam account may not have been linked to your Twitch account when you claimed the drop. You can link your accounts on the top of this page and then click the button to check for missing drops to attempt the reward again.

If you have already linked your accounts but still do not receive any Drops, please un-link your accounts and link them again as described above.
