    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.

      Fairly dramatic difference between single player heavily story based Metro and multi-player PvP based Tarkov.

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

      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.

      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)
