Making your FOV in Rust automatically lower when aiming down sights will give your weapon more zoom than it would normally have. This can be especially useful when spraying a gun at long ranges since it can increase visibility.

Unfortunately, this keybind will switch between FOVs whenever you right-click in Rust, which can be annoying when building or in bow combat. However, you can always remove and add the command back later.

Change FOV and Sensitivity

Some players prefer to lower their sensitivity when aiming to help better their gun control.

  • Open the developer console
  • Copy and paste the command bind mouse1 "+attack2;+input.sensitivity .30;input.sensitivity .20;+graphics.fov 90;graphics.fov 70"
    • The first input sensitivity value is your normal sensitivity and the second is your ADS sensitivity
    • To remove the keybind type bind mouse1 +attack2 into the console
