|For the consumable item in Fallout 76, see Repair kit (Fallout 76).|
The weapon repair kit is a consumable item that restores the condition of Courier's currently-equipped weapon, similar to the alien epoxy in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta. It can be crafted at a workbench with a Repair skill of 50.
It repairs the condition of the player character's active weapon based on their Repair skill level:
|0 - 24||+10%|
|25 - 49||+15%|
|50 - 74||+20%|
|75 - 99||+25%|
This item can be crafted by the player character.

- Using a kit to repair a weapon with a duplicate in your inventory may cause that weapon to become invisible and temporarily hidden in the inventory list, especially when it becomes fully repaired. Dropping all instances of that object will cause the invisible items to reappear. This does not require weapon repair kits to happen, and is more common in full condition apparel.[verified]
