Repair Damaged Weapons Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Zelda Breath of the Wild had one of the most interesting approaches to weapons. Namely, almost every weapon in the game would decay and get broken really quickly. This incentivized players to always be on the lookout for new weapons, as well as to carefully choose which weapons to use in which situation. This system is once again present in Zelda TotK, but does it work the same way, or can you now repair damaged weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom? In this guide, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about whether or not you can fix weapons in the game.

How to Repair Damaged Weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

The short answer is – you can’t. At least, not in the way this system usually works in similar games, where you can, for example, pay a blacksmith to repair all of your equipment. No, your weapons are going to degrade and then break after protracted use. However, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything you can do. And while you can’t stop them from breaking altogether, you can make them so that they last longer.

So, how to fix decayed weapons? Well, while this isn’t a permanent fix, you can use the Fuse ability to fuse your weapon with another material. This will strengthen it and extend the time it would have needed to break. Though, of course, you will first need to obtain the Fuse ability itself, which you can do at the In-Isa Shrine. Once you have this ability, you can use it and fuse your weapon and shield to an item that is right next to you. Note that your weapon and shield need to be unfused for this to work, and that you can only do this once per weapon. So think of this more as a way to prolong a weapon’s durability, since it will eventually break even though you have fused it.
