You possess the amazing ability to repair any item using a roughly similar item. Fix a trail carbine with a hunting rifle, a Plasma Defender with a laser pistol, or even power armor with metal armor. How does it work? Nobody knows... except you.— In-game description

Jury Rigging is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

Effects

With this perk, one can repair weapons, armor, and clothing based on a category instead of type. For example, the rare Ranger Sequoia can be repaired with the common .357 Magnum revolver, and the unique Stealth suit Mk II can be repaired with a set of NCR armor.

There are 13 categories of weapons that the perk will enable repairing within: unarmed, one-handed melee, two-handed melee, energy pistols, energy rifles (laser), energy rifles (other), energy weapons (heavy), one-handed guns, two-handed automatic guns, bolt/lever-action guns, miniguns, grenade launchers, and missile launchers. Likewise, clothing can be used to repair each other within their category (light, medium, heavy). Finally, almost all headgear can be repaired with any other headgear.

Weapons are categorized, to some extent, by the method in which they are fired. For example, the bolt-action anti-materiel rifle can not be repaired by a sniper rifle because the sniper rifle is a semi-automatic firearm, but it can be repaired by the hunting rifle as it is also a bolt-action weapon. However, some discrepancies arise with other weapons. For example, the 12.7mm SMG is categorized as a two-handed gun and therefore can not be repaired by the 9mm and 10mm SMGs, since they are one-handed guns. A mostly complete list of all weapons that fall into specific categories can be found below.

A simple way to tell what weapons can repair each other is to look at the way that the player holds the weapon, in addition to the general type of the weapon (Guns, Energy, Explosives, etc.). For example, as the player holds the plasma rifle in the same way that they hold the laser RCW, Jury Rigging lets the player repair them with each other, even though one is laser and one is plasma. However, since the laser rifle is held differently (more like a bolt/lever action gun), one cannot use it to repair the laser RCW, nor vice versa.

This perk reduces the need to effect repairs using weapon repair kits or non-player characters. It also allows the player character to reliably repair their weapons with similar, much cheaper ones from fallen foes after or during combat without having to seek out an exact match. Characters who use low-durability weapons and picked the Built to Destroy trait, or find themselves using surplus or over/max-charged ammunition often, reap greater benefits from the perk. It can also be a big help to those who favor certain unique weapons like the YCS/186 or Oh, Baby!, whose normal repair counterparts are rare or expensive, or weapons that do not have a standard repair counterpart (like the X-2 antenna, which is a completely unique weapon). This goes for armor as well, meaning that even Remnants power armor can be maintained on the cheap with a set of metal armor.

Jury Rigging also allows the player to repair common items with rare or powerful items, potentially causing the player to lose these items accidentally, so it's advisable to pay close attention when repairing items.

Repair categories

Each weapon and armor falls under a specific category in which all weapons/armors repair each other.

¹ denotes the least expensive. (add-on items excluded)
² denotes the most expensive item that may be readily purchased or found in a class. (add-on items excluded)
³ denotes unique weapon with no common variant available.
Italics denote add-on content.
Note: In cases where multiple items could be listed, the most commonly occurring item is used.

Unaffected Armor and Clothing

The riot gear helmet and its variants are the only headgear classified as "Heavy." Since they can already repair one another freely, Jury Rigging only has the effect to allow them to be repaired by heavy armor. The other helmets and masks from Lonesome Road are classified as "light" and can be Jury Rigged with any other headgear.

Notes

  • All marked men armor regardless of having light or medium weight can be repaired with leather armor or raider armor, which is considered lightweight.
  • There are certain quirks in the item category that the Courier can use certain specific subtypes of items to fix the other, but not vice versa. An example being a combat knife used to fix a bowie knife, or a merc grunt outfit used to fix naughty nightwear.
  • Jury Rigging provides a highly lucrative method for earning caps, allowing the player to loot, scavenge or buy high-end weapons or armor in poor condition and then repair them with cheaper items of the same categories, yielding profits of several thousand caps at a time (i.e. repairing a trail carbine, 3900 caps in full CND, with a varmint rifle, 75 caps in full CND).
  • In the Fallout: New Vegas version, Vault Boy is taping together a service rifle and hunting rifle. In the Fallout: The Roleplaying Game version, the Vault Boy is taping a pipe rifle.
