We all get carried away with good runs. Extracted with loot, threw it in the stash, and off we go again. But many Prospectors forget that their armor is not made out of diamonds and can break pretty quickly. Unless you repair it. Here’s how to repair your armor in The Cycle: Frontier.

How to Repair Armor in The Cycle: Frontier
You can repair armor at the Gear Printer that is located to the right of the deployment pod on the station. You have most probably been there and used the printer already if you completed the tutorial. If not then just look for the station that glows with orange light, that’s the printer.
To repair your armor in The Cycle: Frontier:
Head to the Gear Printer
At the top select the Repair tab
Select the armor piece you wish to repair
Repair the items by pressing the “Repair” button
Your armor will be repaired immediately and the armor will be in the same place it was, so there’s no wait involved. The whole process will cost you a few K-Marks depending on the rarity of the item and the current durability. But repairs aren’t expensive, usually a few hundred, considering you don’t need any resources for it.
Obviously, you want to repair everything that is in need of repair. However, prioritize uncommon and higher rarity items. Mainly because the common (gray) armor can be bought for just a few K-Marks at the Quick Shop. Other items need to be crafted at the Gear Printer and those are more expensive and require additional resources to craft.
Armor and Durability Stats
Anytime you take damage on Fortuna III your armor will lose durability. Whether it is a shield or a helmet. The armor’s max durability and protection vary depending on the rarity of the armor. The rarer the more durable it is and the better it will protect you. Do know that there are multiple items of the same rarity. For example, there is a regular “Shield” and “Tactical Shield”. Tactical will have less durability but also weighs less. Keep that in mind when choosing armor.
Low durability doesn’t affect incoming damage. It will protect you as well as it did before but you are risking breaking your armor and leaving yourself vulnerable in the middle of the fight. And remember that armor’s durability isn’t “bonus hp” as some may think. The armor lowers incoming damage by Armor stat and can endure as much raw damage as the Durability stat.
