Weapon degradation is a common gameplay mechanic in many games. The more you use a weapon, the less Durability it will have. In time, it will break down. This is also the case in Dying Light 2. Perfectly in tune with the ramshackle nature of the post-apocalyptic world, you will come across all manner of makeshift weapons. But what happens when you find a great weapon that you want to use for as long as you can? That’s where the option to repair weapons comes in. But, as we’ll see in this Repair Weapons in Dying Light 2 guide, this mechanic works somewhat differently than it does in most games.
Dying Light 2 Repair Weapons – How to Repair Weapons
Repairing weapons in DL2 functions in a very specific way. First of all, you can only repair higher-quality weapons. These include Rare (blue-colored), Unique (purple-colored), and Artifact (gold-colored) weapons. Of course, higher-quality weapons are much more rare and difficult to get than regular common ones. But you need them, because only these weapons have mod slots in them. Naturally, better-quality weapons have more mod slots. Mods come in three types – Tip, Shaft, and Grip. They can be purchased from Craftsmaster merchants, and they can also be acquired as quest rewards or found while exploring.
If you have mods and a damaged weapon of the Rare, Blue, or Unique variety, go into your inventory. Scroll over a damaged weapon and you will be given an option to modify it if it meets the right prerequisites. Every mod that you install in a weapon will restore exactly 50 Durability points. For weapons with three mod slots, this means that you can repair up to 150 Durability. A very important thing to note here is that you can only do this once for each mod. Meaning – this is a one-time thing. After repairing a weapon with a mod, you won’t be able to do that again. So, you should pay close attention to the Durability levels of your best weapons and take into consideration that you won’t be able to use them forever.
