Like most other crafting-survival games on the market, Enshrouded utilizes a durability system for your tools and weapons. If you swing your club at an enemy, chop down a tree with your axe, or mine ore with the pickaxe, then those pieces of gear will become slightly damaged. At some point, once you’ve used the gear for long enough, they will break. Before this happens, though, you have a chance to repair your tools and weapon, allowing you to keep using them continuously in Enshrouded.

To see how to repair all of your gear in Enshrouded, keep reading my guide below.

Repair your tools and weapons in Enshrouded

Fortunately, the process of repairing your gear is quite simple and doesn’t take more than a second or two. The one factor you have to remember, though, is that a piece of gear can’t be repaired once it’s fully broken. If you look at your hotbar on the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a bar below all of your tools and weapons. Once this green bar runs out, which happens after turning red, that gear will be destroyed.

To make sure this never happens with your gear, you need to repair it before the bar runs out. This is simply done by visiting a Workbench in Enshrouded, which can be built in your base or found in random locations on the map. For example, I discovered a Workbench on the way to find the Sleeping Survivor, and I was able to repair all of my gear by interacting with it.

The easier way of repairing, though, is done through building a Workbench and then using the Workbench in your base. Using the Workbench brings you to a crafting menu, but fear not, as seeing that screen means your gear has been repaired. So, essentially, every time you interact with the Workbench, all of your equipped gear will be fully repaired.

As far as I can tell, you can repair gear an infinite number of times, so you theoretically never have to build a second piece of any gear if you can keep it from running out of durability. Of course, when you’re chopping down trees or fighting enemies, that’s difficult to do.
