      STALKER is post-apocalyptic, and doesn't feature multiplayer in the open world portion. STALKER instead has standard multiplayer modes such as deathmatch, capture the flag, etc.

      Even if it is to survive, eft (Escape From Tarkov) has weapons and all already built whereas in Rust, it's a complete survival and you need to craft stuff.

      DayZ has zombies. Takes you out of the realism more than Tarkov's AI Scavs.

      Similar to Escape from Tarkov in the sense that you drop into a map, get loot and can exit anytime you want. Is 3rd person however and made by the developers who made DayZ (Bohemia Interactive)

      Call of Duty has become more of a twitch shooter than a realistic military simulator. Call of Duty maps are also much smaller than Tarkov's zones.
