The RUST OR Switch is a deployable electrical gateway (trigger) device that allows for electrical current passthrough from two different sources depending on which is sending more power.
While using a Wire Tool to check available ports, players will find the standard Power Out as well as Input A and Input B. You can think of OR switches as if they were spelling out the word ‘or’, in that it functions if A or B is powered. So long as the OR switch receives an adequate power source from either Input, it will pass that power down the line as a normal Switch would, defaulting to the source with the higher power output if both are present.
OR switches are found in an assortment of low-to-mid-tier crates, as well as dropped from many scientist types. RUST players may learn them directly or through a Scrap investment into the Tier 1 Workbench tech tree.
