Trader repair window

Item repair is the process in which you can fix broken gear or Weapons.

This can be done by opening the repair tab for the allowed items where you can select by who you want to repair and the desired points to be repaired.

Any gear that has armor points can be repaired by Body armor repair kit, Prapor, Skier, Mechanic each having certain quality and repair cost.

Any armored gear has a material which gives different properties.


Repair quality Armor repair kit Prapor Skier Mechanic
UHMWPE/Armor steel 1.33 0.83 1 1.43
Other material 1.1 0.83 1 1.43
Repair cost Armor repair kit Prapor Skier Mechanic
- ~0.3* 0.54 1 1.59

.* This is true for most body armors/armored rigs and helmets. Faceshields, additional armor and armored facecover costs are higher than Mechanic so are best repaired with him.
Mechanic is the trader that repairs the best having high repair cost and the Armor repair kit has 2nd best quality being the cheapest option for most gear. Also UHMWPE/Armor steel can be repaired almost the same with Armor repair kits as with Mechanic making it one of the best options for this material types.

UHMWPE/Armor steel materials have best repairing efficiency, being 3 times better than aramid the 2nd best. Ceramic has the worst repairing efficiency for any armor/helmet, while Glass being worse than it applying only for faceshields.

UHMWPE materials are one of the cheapest materials to be repaired with the Armor repair kit.

Destructibility and explosive desructibility are only one of the stats used to calculate damage done to that type of armor material but it doesnt mean they represent how good/bad any material is respective to each other.

Weapons can be repaired with Weapon repair kit, Prapor, Skier, Mechanic.
