How to repair weapons in Dying Light 2 is something many players are wondering about at the moment as they try to survive the modern dark ages.

There may be more than 200 weapons in the game, but every single one of them will degrade and eventually break after use. As such, here's a breakdown of how to repair your weapons in Dying Light 2.

How to Repair Weapons in Dying Light 2

While gear pieces do not lose durability over time, unfortunately, all weapons do — with each and every hit.

In Dying Light 2, the only way to repair your weapons is by adding a weapon modification to it.

Whether it's in the tip, shaft or grip socket, adding any weapon mod replenishes 50% of a weapon's durability.

As such, the best way to maximize the longevity of a beloved weapon is by using it barebones until it's about to break, then slapping on weapon mods to keep it going. You also can't replace a mod on a weapon at the moment, so you'll likely want to only add the available modifications one by one whenever your weapon’s durability starts running low instead of adding every available modification at once.

Since only weapons that are Rare and above have sockets for mods, Common and Uncommon weapons cannot be saved — although there likely isn't much of a need to anyways.

Weapon mods can be crafted or bought from a Craftmaster.

It's also worth mentioning that there is a weapon mod called "Reinforcement" that can be applied to to decrease a weapon's durability loss rate, up to a reported 100% cut if you max out its Upgrade Level.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is available now for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC (via Steam, Epic Games Store and the Techland Store).
