Rust Most Expensive Skins
A screenshot of the steam community store for Rust skins.

    In Rust, skins can be ridiculously expensive. Some cost many times more than the base game itself, and others cost more than a decently powerful PC! Why anyone would bother to spend their hard-earned money on a purely aesthetic part of this game is beyond me, but here is a list of the top 15 most expensive skins in Rust.

15. Military Camo MP5

The MP5 is such a basic and often used gun in Rust, so it makes sense that you might want a skin to liven things up. This skin is a handsome combination of military camo and rugged wood and metal texturing. You’ll feel like some kind of commando operative somebody, though it will cost you a pretty penny.

What makes this skin great:

  • The camouflage and worn material appearance makes it look like a gun straight out of the Vietnam war.
  • As with all skins on this list, it’s a way to flaunt either your great wealth or insane devotion to the game.
  • Anyone else getting Rambo vibes here?

Price: $102.90

14. Plate Carrier - Black

This skin looks like the real deal: an authentic tactical plate carrier. There’s just one downside… It costs over 150 dollars! If you can pony that up, you will be looking very realistic.

What makes this skin great:

  • A truly realistic skin.
  • Goes well with the LR-300 for the tactical appearance.
  • It won’t increase damage protection, but it will flaunt your style – and deep pockets.

Price: $155.16

13. Alien Red

A skin from a previous article of mine, I still cannot figure out why this gun is called “Alien Red”. Red, sure, that’s clear to see. But where does the Alien part come from?

What makes this skin great:

  • This is a skin that really pops.
  • Turn your boring looking AR into something really out there!
  • Mystify your friends and paralyze your foes… with this overly expensive skin!

Price: $159.52

12. Freshly Dug Grave

Want to sleep in the comfort of your own freshly dug grave? Well, who really would… But this skin will make your sleeping bag appear to be the pile of dirt above your own freshly dug grave! Hooray! I guess?

What makes this skin great:

  • Cryptic and Halloween-y
  • Very rare
  • Embrace your own mortality in fashion!

Price: $187.74

11. Tempered Mask

Have you seen a more gorgeous facemask? I didn’t think so. Wow, this thing really goes easy on the eyes! I seriously dig the tempered coloration and metallic sheen of this skin.

What makes this skin great:

  • Awesome color scheme
  • Realistic metal shine
  • Super expensive but worth it to some

Steam community store link: https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/252490/Tempered%20Mask

Price: $201.25

10. Fire Jacket

Do you fantasize about being a fireman? Do you just like the style of a fireman’s outfit? If either of these questions apply to you, then this might be a skin to try out! It will cost you roughly 10 times the base game price, though.

What makes this skin great:

  • Become a bonafide hero (at least in appearance)
  • While not actually able to resist fire damage, this coat does look pretty nice
  • I wonder if those stripes are really reflective?

Price: $210.22

9. Creepy Clown Bandana

When I look at this skin, one name comes to mind: Pennywise. You know, the clown from It? Just look at those teeth… And the blood of what I can only assume are his child victims.

What makes this skin great:

  • Become the ultimate creep.
  • Funny or scary? Scary. Clearly scary.
  • Not practical in any sense, but definitely something to spook your friends with!

Price: $228.05

8. Tempered MP5

Another tempered metal skin. I just can’t get enough of these color schemes and textures, and apparently neither can the Rust community! They just keep showing up on my lists. And you know what, I like it!

What makes this skin great:

  • Tempered metal – need I say more?
  • Turns the bland MP5 base skin into something far more vibrant.
  • I think I would be too distracted by the skin to be able to use this well.

Price: $315.92

7. Glory AK-47

The glory AR skin is another blast from my Rust article past. The look of it is totally sweet. But that price tag? Sheesh!

What makes this skin great:

  • Does glory stand for the exorbitant price of this one?
  • A handsome skin to be sure.
  • Glorify your skin arsenal with something worth your months grocery money!

Price: $377.36

6. Horror Bag

Halloween might be one of my favorite holidays, so of course I dig this skin. The pumpkins, the bats, the neon orange sky… It’s perfectly designed. But maybe not worth $400.

What makes this skin great:

  • Halloween time baby!
  • If you love spooky season, this skin might be ideal for you.
  • If you can afford it, of course.

Price: $401

5. Big Grin

Smile! In case your friends or foes were wondering what was going on behind your metal facemask, this skin will leave little to doubt. You can have the appearance of a massive, goofy grin for the affordable (or not) price of $515!

What makes this skin great:

  • Smiling never hurts
  • Add some comedy to the dark world of Rust
  • If you can afford it, you’ll stand out!

Steam community store link: https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/252490/Big%20Grin

Price: $515

4. Demonic Pistol

Covered in skulls and bones with a sanguine tinge, this looks like it could be the devil’s pistol. Also, apparently the devil is a really rich guy because this thing costs what you would expect a lower-middle end gaming PC to cost!

What makes this skin great:

  • Badass gun, no doubt
  • Hail Satan and wipe out your foes
  • You might have to sell your soul to the devil… because that’s about what this skin costs.

Steam community store link: https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/252490/Demonic%20Pistol

Price: $805

3. Alien Relic SMG

What do you get when you cross a piece of handcrafted SMG with an alien laser gun? The answer is this skin! It has the appearance of a haphazardly assembled Rust firearm coupled with the futuristic design that you might expect from an extraterrestrial civilization.

What makes this skin great:

  • I would half expect this thing to shoot laser beams.
  • A very stylish looking gun.
  • Over $1000 dollars might sound like a lot, but people have bought this!

Steam community store link: https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/252490/Alien%20Relic%20SMG

Price: $1090

2. Metal Tree Door

This is a beautiful skin. I wish my door looked like this in real life! One thing that comes to mind when I look at this is the Lord of the Rings, such as an elvish design. Anyone agree?

What makes this skin great:

  • The elegance is superb.
  • Medieval style is right up my alley – and maybe yours!
  • Objectively, $1500 bucks for a skin is way too much. But hey, maybe you want to blow some cash!

Steam community store link: https://steamcommunity.com/market/listings/252490/Metal%20Tree%20Door

Price: $1531.42

1. Punishment Mask

Call me the grim reaper if you ever catch me wearing this facemask skin! Either that or “The Master of Death”. Those names are certainly along the lines of what this metal facemask skin evokes.

What makes this skin great:

  • This is currently and definitively the highest priced skin in all of Rust.
  • High end gaming rig or Rust skin? This mask gives you the option of how to spend that cash.
  • Death incarnate (though it won’t increase your skill or PVP effectiveness)

Price: $1,600
