(Section from Game Mechanics)
All Tools, Weapons, and Clothing have a durability which degrades over time with use. Repairing Tools, Weapons, and Clothing is important because they each become weaker the lower the durability. Some items like the Bone Shiv, cannot be repaired, and a new one must be made when it breaks. If you do not have the recipe book learnt or the skill learn to repair something like a Sniper Rifle, or a Machete you cannot repair it. Every item takes time and resources to repair, some items needing more than one of a particular resource. The Fixer (Perk) can increase the repairing speed/amount for all items. Other Perks like Tool Smithing (Perk), or Gun Smithing (Perk), among other Perks, will also increase repair speed/amount for their affected items. If an item does not have a durability it cannot be repaired. For instance Painkillers, Feathers, or Duct Tape cannot be repaired.
