Duct tape is a repair material which can be found in storage cupboards in houses, boxes in warehouses, and sheds which is used to repair weapons to an useable state. Using Duct Tape does not require any skill in carpentry to use.


Duct tape is a multi-use item and can be used repeatedly until the roll has run out. It can give between 25%-50% (depending on the weapon) repair for the first use on a weapon, and this percentage decreases with every repair.
