Your very first weapon in Dead Island 2 will serve you for about three different zombie encounters. Then, it will break and you will be forced to either find a new weapon or equip an existing one from your weapon wheel. This is a process that you will go through the entire game, as weapons tend to break fairly easily in Hell-A. Players might get disappointed by this system, as they might have grown attached to a certain weapon that has become unusable. So, players’ natural next question is whether they can repair their weapons or not in Dead Island 2.
At first glance, it might seem like you can’t do anything about your broken weapons in Dead Island 2. After all, you only have so much space in your weapon wheel and the game constantly requires you to switch out weapons after you get through killing a horde of zombies. However, all is not lost, as you are eventually able to repair broken weapons. You can read about how to do so in the guide below.
How to repair weapons in Dead Island 2
The only way of repairing weapons in Dead Island 2 is to bring them to a Workbench, which is identified on your map as a wrench and hammer icon. The game states that players can “Visit a Workbench to pay to have broken weapons repaired.”
Players will be able to find their first Workbench about an hour or two into the game after meeting Sam at Emma’s mansion. At this point, players can pick any broken weapon from their weapon wheel and pay a certain fee to fully repair it. At the Workbench, simply find the weapon you want to repair, click on it, and then press Enter to fix it.
The repair fee depends on the kind of weapon and how much damage it has sustained. You will pay using cash, which is found all over the map of Dead Island 2, including in the mansion that you explore during your first mission.
