Adhesive tape, or scotch tape is a repair material.


Adhesive tape is used to durability to an useable state. It is usually an inferior material to duct tape or wood glue, but is better than nothing. Using Adhesive tape does not require any skill in carpentry to use.

Adhesive tape is a single-use item and can be used only once and the roll will run out. It can repair up to 10% durability for the first use on a weapon. Note that this percentage decreases with every repair.

Amount of adhesive tape used per repair

A roll of adhesive tape only provides 1 use. Multiple rolls will be needed per repair.
