XOR Switch

The RUST XOR Switch is a deployable electrical gateway (trigger) device that allows for electrical current passthrough from one of two different sources so long as only one transfers power at a time.

While using a Wire Tool to check available ports, players will find the standard Power Out, Input A, and Input B. You can think of XOR switches as if they were spelling out the word ‘or’ in that they function only if A or B is powered. If both sides are powered, no power passthrough is allowed, essentially the same as if you turn a Switch off.

XOR switches are found in an assortment of low-to-mid-tier crates and dropped from many scientist types. RUST players may learn them directly or through a Scrap investment into the Tier 1 Workbench tech tree.

Item Information
NameXOR Switch
Short Nameelectric.xorswitch
Item DescriptionAn exclusive-or logic gate that allows electrical passthrough if ONLY ONE input receives power, passthrough amount is whichever single input is active. if BOTH inputs recieve power, passthrough will be zero.
