I got banned from an individual server for this, on my second day of playing Rust. These assholes in a clan were killing me while I was building up my base, repeatedly. I finally had enough and I went in my cloth armor and pipe shotgun to go kick their ass. Surprisingly I killed two of them, but I’d desynched pretty hardcore, because I’m in the middle of nowhere and my internet blows. One of the guys was running on like, a loop, like he’d go from point A to point B, warp to point A, go to point B, warp to point A, etc. Since the game has client side shooting, I was still able to kill him, and god knows where he actually was on the server.
Mind you, this was weeks ago, and I’m still not VAC/Cheatpunch banned, because I wasn’t actually cheating. I was lagging. Badly.
They accused me of hacking, all of the clan, and despite having no actual proof. (The admin did not “catch me” doing anything, it was not an automatic ban by VAC or Cheatpunch, etc) Hell the admin didn’t even review any logs. I got banned from the server on word of mouth alone.
