Is there a way to repair weapons in Dying Light 2?

Yes, you are able to repair weapons in Dying Light 2. Though you have to spend some time into the game’s main story before you’re granted the ability to do so. You won’t be able to repair weapons immediately at the start of the game.

How to Repair Weapons in Dying Light 2?

You can repair your weapons in Dying Light 2 by installing mods that increase its durability. Weapons with mod slots can be outfitted with mods that restore durability by a good number. But do note that these are the only ways to fix your weapons.

How to Increase Weapon Durability in Dying Light 2 - How to Repair Weapons in Dying Light 2

Installing Weapon Mods

Mods can be installed in the tip, shaft, or grip of a weapon, for a total of three slots. Each mod slot will restore your weapon’s durability by 50%. Any of these slots can be upgraded, which means that even a worn-out firearm can be restored with just two additional tweaks. So if you have 3 mod slots along with the corresponding mods, you can increase the durability by 150.

To get a durability mod, go to any Craftsmaster in any settlement. Look through the mods, more especially the shaft mods as those usually contain the mods we’re looking for. Read the description of the mods and check to see if they increase the durability of your melee weapon.

Once you’ve purchased the mod, go to your inventory using the touchpad. Navigate to the weapons you want to mod and install this particular mod. You’re going to need materials to install mods.

The good news is, is that mods don’t break so you don’t need to keep buying the same mod from Craftsmasters. However, they do cost you materials you find in The City or ones you can buy from Vendors and Craftsmaster in settlements.

Not just any melee weapon can be modified for durability however. You’ll need to ensure you have the mod slot needed to outfit the mod for that particular weapon in the first place. Usually, we’re looking for rare to artifact melee weapons to install durability mods.

Install Reinforcement Modification Blueprint

Reinforcement is a unique weapon modification blueprint that further reduces the durability loss of a weapon. When upgraded to its utmost, this grip mod is said to reduce durability loss by 100%. The problem is that even with this mod installed, the weapons appear to be losing their durability. It just slows the process of durability loss.

Eventually, your melee weapons will break. This is regardless if you install durability mods to any of its slots. It is simply a matter of time. Once you install this weapon mod, you cannot remove that mod and there are only a finite number of slots available for all your melee weapons.

This may make you hesitate on using your best weapons. Especially rare artifact melee weapons with great damage. But don’t worry, Dying Light 2 features many melee weapons you can pick up that will be even better.

Ranged weapons, such as bows and crossbows in Dying Light 2, do not need to be repaired. Those do not wear and tear but they rely on limited ammunition to function.

Korek Charm – for Infinite Weapon Durability

The Korek Charm is a weapon modification that grants your weapon an indefinite amount of durability. Adding the Korek Charm on a weapon grants 500 durability, and it can be applied and deleted as often as desired.

However, even if you’re incredibly lucky, you’ll have to go through some painstaking processes to get your hands on the blueprint, which can only be obtained by following a series of very particular instructions.

How to get Korek Charm in Dying Light 2

You’ll first need to get to the top of the VNC Tower, which is located in the heart of Central Loop. Once you’ve completed the Broadcast story mission, you’ll get access to the lift, which will transport you right up to it. Grappling hooks can also be used to get to the top, although this is much more difficult.

At the top of the VNC Tower:

  1. Glide toward the structure with a white pole in the middle, to the southwest.
  2. Take the red cable, open it, and connect it to the socket in order to interact with the generator.
  3. Turn around and drop the wooden board to the east, all the while holding on to the cord. Once you’ve gotten to the next one below, you can drop down to the one just beneath that. Here, you’re likely to locate a red power generator.
  4. Cross the room in order to locate the green generator, head over there while still holding on to the red cable that you just plugged in, walk out of this room through the window on your right.
  5. The room with the second red generator can be found by descending two more floors.
  6. Repeat the same process as earlier, connect the cable on the red generator, then cross over to the green generator on the other side, where you’ll connect the red cable.
  7. Go outdoors and to the left with the new cable in hand to find another wooden plank dangling over the edge.
  8. Once you’ve made it to the bottom, turn around and head back toward the building you came from. Once you’re on the ground, walk north and enter the building on your left.
  9. Connect the connection to the other generator on the wall directly in front of you. The panel on the right for the locking mechanism must be interacted with which will open towards the Dev Room.
  10. Enter the Dev Room, go through the double doors on your right and into the chamber at the end of the short corridor, clear out and defeat the Infected.
  11. Coffee tables have square cushions around them and you must sit on them in an orderly fashion, otherwise it will not work.
  12. There is a tiny orange cushion just in front of the television in the middle of two blue ones, so start with that one and work your way around it clockwise, making sure not to miss any.
  13. Continue around until you get back to the door you came through.
  14. When you exit the room, you should sit on the pillows closest to the door. Keep an eye on the coffee table while you’re here. The Korek Charm blueprint will surface in roughly 30 seconds.

How to Install a Modification Blueprint

To Install a Modification Blueprint, hover over the weapons in your inventory to see the blueprints for the modifications you want to make. To access the modification menu, press C. Most blueprints can be purchased from Craftmasters, but the mods can be equipped without their assistance.

Ask Help from a Craftmaster

Dying Light 2’s Craftmasters may be found in almost every major settlement. In addition to selling a wide variety of crafting recipes for consumables, throwable weapons, and weapon mods, these craftmasters can also upgrade the recipes you already own.

A recipe’s level can only be increased by supplying Craftmasters with the appropriate resources. For the time being, all they ask for are infected trophies, which can be acquired from specific zombies like Biters and Goons that only appear at night, and some cash.

Continuing to level up recipes, on the other hand, becomes pricey, and you’ll eventually have to bring Craftmasters rarer diseased trophies and other unusual materials, including military tech, which can only be obtained in airdrops on rooftops with parachutes thrown over the side.

Dying Light 2 Tips on Repairing Weapons

Here are some key tips when you’re repairing weapons in Dying Light 2:

  • Durability mods do not increase the maximum lifetime of your melee weapons. So it’s best practice to wield a good weapon without a durability mod first and get some use before installing it.
  • Weapon mods can be made via the weapon menu, but you’ll need the appropriate supplies. Even though they require basic ingredients, weapon mods aren’t prohibitively expensive. A Flame mod, for example, necessitates scrap metal, resin, and an alcoholic beverage bottle.
  • Weapon quality in the open world of Dying Light 2 increase as you progress your level. This means that the weapon you’re wielding right now might not be so great later in the game. You should think carefully and exercise discretion before deciding to repair a weapon with mods. It may not be worth the hassle.
  • If you have a favorite weapon, resist the temptation to quickly modify it, no matter how tempting it may seem. Only use that weapon until it’s nearly broken before switching to another. Put as many high-end upgrades on it as you can before it’s too late, and you’ll have a weapon that’s better than it was before.
  • If you’re still losing your durability on the melee weapons even with Reinforcement, this may be a possible bug on the game’s part. Stay tuned for a hotfix.
