The Industrial Combiner is a deployable item in RUST used to source and combine materials within the Industrial system.
Basic functionality of the Industrial Combiner
Players may deploy industrial combiners on nearly any surface in locations where they possess building privilege. The primary function of the combiner is to perform the same combining task as a standard Fluid Combiner, utilizing crafting resource inputs instead of water. These resources may then be combined using an Industrial Crafter to produce the desired blueprint or rerouted into an appropriate storage container with a Storage Adaptor attachment to retain the materials in their respective forms.
At current, the use of a Wiring Tool and electrical input is not currently required to operate the industrial combiner. The tooltip information currently lists power usage as 1.
When utilizing the Pipe Tool, the industrial combiner possesses 3 different Industrial In ports, combining those materials for either crafting (see above) or as a simple passthrough (when not routed through an industrial crafter) via the single Industrial Out port.
Means of getting an Industrial Combiner
Currently, the combiner is craftable via the Work Bench Level 1, requiring 20 scrap to research directly, or 250 scrap to tech tree unlock. It may also be found in medium to high tier crates.
