Naraka Lame pointe is a melee-focused battle royale, and since melee weapons traditionally don't require ammo, the game uses a weapon durability system to make sure players don't hack and slash their way to victory. This includes the handful of ranged weapons in Naraka Bladepoint, which also don't use ammo in the usual sense. You need to know how to repair and restore weapon durability if you don't want to get knocked down in battle.
Repair and restore weapon durability with a weapon chest in Naraka Bladepoint.
You can repair and restore the durability of any equipped weapon by using a Weapons Chest, a staple item found throughout Trial of the Herald. You can only carry two weapon chests per stack, so they can take up most of your inventory slots if you try to carry one for every possible weapon you can carry (which makes a total of six, including the two you have equipped).
Weapon durability in Naraka Bladepoint is lost when hitting an enemy with your melee weapon or firing your ranged weapon. This means that the durability of ranged weapons is, for all intents and purposes, their ammo. To use a weapon chest to repair and restore a melee or ranged weapon, simply press the R key to channel the item. Casting takes three seconds and you cannot move while using the weapon chest. However, this will fully restore your weapon's durability, so you'll want to save them for whenever your durability is extremely low.
Keep in mind that melee weapons are still usable in combat if they reach zero weapon durability, but their damage will be reduced. Since weapon durability acts like ammo for ranged weapons, they stop working until you repair them and restore their durability. This means you can try to stay alive with a broken melee weapon if you're out of weapon chests and need to find more.
By the way, in Naraka Bladepoint, you can left-click weapon chests in your inventory to use them on your currently equipped weapon. This includes every time you press Tab for area loot. Right click on the weapon chest you want to use to add it to your inventory, then left click on it to use it.
Don't forget to keep track of your weapon's durability in the bottom right of the UI to make sure you're always ready for a fight. Naraka Lame pointe will launch on August 12, 2022 on PC via Steam.
