The Repair toolbox is an additional piece of equipment currently available to three roles; the Crewman, Combat Engineer, and Sapper. The purpose of the Repair Toolbox is to repair damaged vehicles on the battlefield.

Information

The Repair Toolbox allows damaged vehicles to be repaired, up to a certain extent. To initiate a repair, move close to a damaged vehicle and hold left-click. The character will then begin repairing the vehicle to the max allowed limit. As of Alpha 13, the Repair toolbox can only repair a vehicle's overall health back to 25%. For vehicle engines, Light Vehicles can be repaired to 100%, while APCs and higher can be repaired up to 80% of engine health. To restore a vehicle back to 100% health, it is necessary to drive it to a Repair Station, either at Main Base or one constructed at a Forward Operating Base.

Destroyed tracks and wheels can always be repaired to 100% health. Now that vehicle's wheels and tracks can be destroyed, as well as vehicle engines, Repair Toolboxes are required to bring damaged vehicles back to life. To deny the team a vehicle, specifically logistical trucks/technicals, the enemy may simply destroy the wheels or tracks to severely limit the vehicle's speed. Often the only way to get a vehicle up and running again, besides destroying it, is to repair the wheels or tracks. Thus having someone on your team with a Repair Toolbox can often prove invaluable.

Trivia

  • The Repair Toolbox was added with V12
  • Two animations currently exist; One where the character uses a socket wrench, the other a hammer. Both animations do the exact same thing.
