Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide: How to Repair Weapons

In this guide we’ll be going over Where and How you can repair your weapons in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game full of detail, sometime that much detail can be frustrating, like when you have to repair you weapons every so often.

In Red Dead Redemption 2 your weapons will deteriorate with time and usage so it’s definitely in your best interest to keep your weapons in top shape by repairing them. As your gun’s condition lowers it’ll do less damage, take longer to reload, slow down its fire rate and be less accurate. Although weapons don’t break in Red Dead Redemption 2 since there’s a lot of depth in the weapon customization function with your gun being “your” gun, it’ll end up shooting blanks if you’re not giving it the needed attention.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide: How to Repair Weapons

Repairing weapons in Red Dead Redemption 2 is super easy. Just open your Weapon Wheel by pressing L1 on PS4 or Left Bumper on Xbox One where you can check the condition for each of your guns. Move your analog stick to the weapon that’s needing repair and press R3 on PS4 or the Right Stick on Xbox One. The game will then prompt you with the Clean function, select it, and your weapon is good as new. Each time you do this you will consume 1 unit of Gun Oil.

Alternatively you can visit a Gunsmith to repair your gun on the cheap.
