A wrench is a tool used in vehicle mechanics.

Usage

Mechanics

Main article: Mechanics

A wrench is one of the most important tools when working on vehicles. It is required to install/uninstall the gas tank, muffler, brakes, suspension, trunk lid, hood, and repair/dismantle the engine.

The player will not be able to use the wrench on a vehicle if they have not read the appropriate recipe magazine corresponding to the vehicle type.

Weapon

The wrench can be used as a weapon, hitting up to 2 enemies at a time (with multi-hit enabled), dealing a maximum of 1 damage to enemies (unless a critical hit) from up to 1.1 tiles away at an attack speed of 1.

Condition

The wrench has a maximum condition of 9. Its rate of degradation is influenced by the short blunt and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (15 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the short blunt and maintenance skills.
Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and short blunt skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Condition
Maintenance level Short blunt level Condition lower chance Average condition
0 0 1/15 (7%) 135
0 4 1/17 (6%) 153
0 8 1/19 (5%) 171
4 0 1/19 (5%) 171
8 0 1/23 (4%) 207
4 4 1/21 (5%) 189
4 8 1/23 (4%) 207
8 8 1/27 (4%) 243
10 10 1/29 (3%) 261

Distribution

The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

Wrench distribution Show / Hide
Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
