How to repair EAC for Rust
By Small Water Purifier
Repairing EAC is something that is sometimes needed to fix errors that occur in Rust and this guide will show you how to do it step by step
Locating the Easy Anti Cheat folder
To repair EAC you will need to locate the Easy Anti Cheat folder and run EasyAntiCheat.exe.

By default the EAC folder will be found under your C drive → Program files → EasyAntiCheat
To navigate to this first load up the file explorer


Now on the left hand side of the window you will be greeted with this.
Either navigate straight to your C drive at the bottom or go to 'This PC' and then go to your C drive.
(Please note I have named my drives and yours will not look the same, just look for the C drive)

Now click on 'Program Files (x86)'

Now click on 'EasyAntiCheat'

Now you are in the correct folder run 'EasyAnticheat.exe'
(Please note the '.exe' may not show for you, run the application)

Once you load EasyAntiCheat.exe you will be greeted with this window after allowing "this app to make changes to your device"

Now you need to select 'Rust' from the dropdown menu

And hit 'Repair'

This will now repair EAC for Rust.

Now hit 'finish' to close the window

You are all done!
