US-Scourge: Are You Smarter Than a (5th Grade) Zombie?


Recommended Posts


Event will run Wednesday, August 7th (8pm ET)

In this interactive trivia games, participants face off in a blocked in 5x5 grid answering questions from one of 3 categories:  General Rust & Developer Trivia, RustEZ Community Trivia or Scourge Admin Trivia.  Each incorrect answer will send the player down a personal chute. Three wrong answers will land participants on the bottom floor and out of the game.

To participate in this event, players need Rust game audio and voice activity enabled.

How The Event Works:

  • Players join the event with an empty inventory and no access to backpacks.
  • The first 25 players to arrive and secure a trivia chute will play for prizes.
  • Players not in the game may choose to remain in the audience for "support" and RNG prizes.
  • Once all of the participant spots have been filled, hosts will start the game.
  • During the game, hosts go in order and each player will have 10 seconds to correctly answer a trivia question.

Game rounds continue until we have 3 players remaining to claim 1-3rd place prizes, based on the order they land on the bottom floor. There is one round of play with up to 25 players participating. Players who remain until admins close the event can claim a participation prize.


1st place: $10 RustEZ Store Credit
2nd Place: $5 RustEZ Store Credit
3rd Place: 3x Supply Signals to use this wipe
