Wind Turbine

The RUST Wind Turbine is a deployable electrical generation device used to create power for base security and light systems. The amount of power produced by a single wind turbine is dependent on a number of factors including elevation, nearby wind obstructions, weather patterns, and how much the game likes you that day.

Wind turbines are more frequently used as primary power on larger bases. Once placed, energy can then be used directly (not advisable) or stored in a battery bank such as the Large Rechargeable Battery.  A single wind turbine is capable of generating up to ~200 power at a time depending on the factors listed above. Unlike Large Solar Panels, wind turbines do not stop generating at night.

Wind turbines 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, purchase them from Bandit Camp for 500 scrap, or through a scrap investment into the Tier 2 Workbench tech tree.
