Repairing tools in Palworld is vital to your survival and a necessary task, but it can be a tedious process, particularly if you’re carrying a wealth of equipment.
I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve returned to my base in Palworld and have had to tediously repair my equipment one by one—but it turns out there’s a much easier way that has completely blown my mind.
When using the Repair Bench in Palworld, there’s actually a button you can use to fix all of your tools in a single click, which completely passed me by. All you need to do is press R on your PC keyboard or RB if on Xbox.
The time-saving shortcut was shared on Reddit by a player who admitted they had played over 100 hours of Palworld before learning about this feature, which does make me feel slightly better as I’m in a similar boat.
When you use this trick, the game will quickly calculate all the materials you need to repair your tools and equipment, then present you with a final confirmation box so you can double-check and make sure everything you want is there.
This feature will not work if you have items in your inventory that you don’t have the required materials to repair. For example, when I tried for the first time, it didn’t work as my Crossbow needed repairing, but I didn’t have any Nails. Once I put my Crossbow in a box, the feature was available.
Of course, you do need to be wary of what you have in your inventory and ensure you’re not repairing something you don’t want to, as it can quickly deplete through your collection of High Quality Pal Oil. Some items, like the Shock Baton, are also not worth repairing as the damage it does is minimal anyway and doesn’t lose its ability to stun enemies if damaged.
