How to Repair Weapons in The Outer Worlds


As you use weapons and take part in battles in The Outer Worlds, your weapons will begin to lose durability. This will effect the amount of damage they do, with them doing less the more damaged they are.

Thankfully, you can repair weapons in-game quite easily, and it’s also cheap to do. By scrapping items you don’t want, you can essentially recycle them to repair the weapons you do want.

We’ve put together a short guide below for repairing weapons in-game. For more guides & content for The Outer Worlds on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One, make sure to check out our dedicated area here!

Repairing Weapons in The Outer Worlds

To repair weapons in The Outer Worlds, you will need to find a Workbench. Luckily, they’re super easy to find and are sitting in most towns. They have a minimap icon, and if you still can’t find one, there’s one on board your ship, The Unreliable. Interact with it.

Open the Workbench and then the repair tab

In a Workbench, you can customise your weapons and armor by modifying, upgrading, scrapping and repairing them. Inside the Workbench, head to the ‘Repair’ tab. You will see a list of weapons in your inventory, any that have a golden background are ones that you currently have equipped.

Choose the weapon you want to repair

On the right hand side of the screen, you will see the repair cost. They cost Weapon Parts. You can obtain Weapon Parts by scrapping some unwanted weapons in the ‘Break Down’ tab, as breaking them down gives parts. You can also check the damage status of a weapon by looking at the wrench icon, and how full it is.
