The weapon repair kit, when used, restores the condition of the player's currently-equipped weapon, similar to the alien epoxy from Mothership Zeta. The weapon must be equipped in order for the repair kit to work, therefore weapon kits cannot repair broken weapons. While the effect of one kit may not completely repair a weapon, applying multiple kits one after the other (regardless of Repair skill) can increase a weapon's condition to 100%.
Other than being crafted, weapon repair kits can be found in the following places;
The dropbox in the Abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker spawns 100 Sierra Madre chips and 1 voucher (worth 1000 chips) every 3 days, allowing the player to buy 55 Weapon Repair Kits every 3 days making this an invaluable source for the kits, provided they found the Vending machine code.
In Jacobstown, in the Jacobstown lodge take the right hand stairs down the hall to the last room on the right side before the bathroom; on the middle shelf near some communications-electronic equipment.
One can be found in a police car at the Poseidon gas station. There are also 2 Duct tape and a skill magazine. However, only one of these items can be grabbed, as the disturbance caused by grabbing one forces the other items under the car, making them disappear. If one leaves the area and returns later, additional items may be taken.
Prior to patch 184.108.40.2064, the recipe required an additional 1 scrap metal, 1 wonderglue, and 1 wrench.
If you unequip your weapon and become totally unarmed then use the weapon repair kit, a little amount of health will be restored.
Xbox 360PlayStation 3 Using a Weapon Repair Kit on any weapon with a durability mod installed (such as a .357 magnum revolver with an HD cylinder) will cause the weapon's health to decrease, if the weapons health is above the original health level. This is caused by a specific function (SetWeaponHealthPerc) not properly accounting for added health.
PlayStation 3 Oddly, when the weapon repair kit is used, the sound effect is the same as reading a skill book or magazine, instead of the typical repair sound effect as one might expect.
