tldr: cheat works great. ive had no crashes, no performance issues. there are a few things that need tweaking and a couple features are missing, but on the whole its working well.
a little about me:
im old. been a gamer since gaming on a pc was a thing. my fingers and reaction times arent what they used to be, so i get a little help from platforms like hc to keep things fun. this is my first rust platform, but ive cheated my way through a wide variety of games over the years so im no fng. my aim is still pretty good, so i set things up 'legit' style, with a small fov and no esp. i still enjoy using game knowledge and situational awareness to win rounds.
i bought rust level 2 several days before writing this post, and within the first hour my first account was banned. i have no idea why. during that hour, i didnt really play rust. i joined a sandbox to have a look at the menu, and joined an aim training server to see how things operated. i have 2k hours+ legit rust gameplay, and i know how to skirt EAC from other EAC games i cheat in. i made sure while on the aim server not to exceed my normal accuracy or headshot count. it had to be a fluke, or maybe i had a rust client that wasnt closed completely when i started hc for the first time. i followed the startup guide, and when it asked if i wanted to load the hwid spoofer, i cancelled as per instructions.
heres where things get odd. i played that first hour, left the game at the menu screen and ate supper. returned to the keyboard 30 minutes or so later and upon trying to join a server, received the gameban notice. i came back to the forums and started digging into recent posts, and found where it was suggested that NOT loading the hwid spoofer was the reason for the ban. ok, fair enough. i had another account on standby just for the occasion. i loaded my 2nd account, fresh no hours, and played legit for 3 hours. no problems. ok, not hwid banned. gave hc another go. loaded everything as per the startup guide again, this time i loaded the hwid spoofer when it asked. played for 22 hours with the hwid spoofer active, no gameban. all the while im reading ban reports on the forum where people are being told its the hwid spoofer that is getting them banned.
after about hour 25, i decided to try again without the hwid spoofer loaded. as of writing this post, i have 31 hours in rust and things are smooth as butter, still on the 2nd account.
aimbot prediction is damn good. people complaining about the aimbot missing with bows dont understand the game. i can absolutely destroy faces with bows and what ive been having most fun with. i dont know if its just me, but i cant switch the aimpoint for the aimbot. its always smashing faces, no matter what bone i select in the dropdown ( head, neck or chest ) nor what key the aimbot is bound to. my aim is pretty good anyway, i just now toggle it on to secure a kill.
esp is what you'd expect. there are a few flaws here and there, like trashpile nameplates not turning off when toggled, missing christmas items, no difference between how NPC's look vs players, and a lack of distance slider for items/spawns, but these are petty complaints and you get used to it quickly.
all in all, even with the huge pricetag i see myself being a long time customer.
