Electricity 1920 1080 Durrr

With great power comes great responsibility or emm.. Electricity!

In Krypted Gaming, we utilize the powerful tool of electricy to enhance our gameplay and tactics. From keeping the lights on at night to powering our hemp farm, electricity is a crucial part of our builds.

In this article, we’ll go over the basics of what you need to know.

Becoming Connected

No, not getting closer to your fellow rust player. But connecting to the megawatts of power that runs all sorts of equipment to help your base builds.

Like the mighty building hammer, the wire tool is the rust electricians best friend, and essential for any power project! A default item crafted at any workbench for only 5 HQM. They are the main tool connecting circuits for generating and distributing power.

The Wire tool allows you to connect the electrical components together. It has a range of 30 meters or 16 pinpoints per single run.

Left click will allow you to pin the wire to the wall, while the right click will disconnect the current wire run. You connect to items (small white boxes) output and input.

While the tool it equipped you can hover over to display the current in the section you are working on, you can also see the time remaining on the batteries.

Electrical Components

To start electricity in rust comes with it a bunch of new components, of witch can be found in boxes and creates around the map, and can be researched and crafted.
