RF Broadcaster

The RUST RF Broadcaster is a deployable electrical device that can be used by players to transmit an RF signal at a designated frequency. It is manually set to a numerical representation designated by the player.

While using a Wire Tool to check available ports, players will find the standard Power In option. Requiring a single unit of power to operate, the RF broadcaster has a very specific purpose; to project a constant frequency at a certain signal so that other electrical devices can pick it up and provide passthrough functions. This can be used for a variety of reasons covered in our assorted electrical guides.

RF broadcasters are found in an assortment of mid-to-high tier crates, as well as dropped from many scientist types. RUST players may learn them directly or through a Scrap investment into the Tier 2 Workbench tech tree.
