I can repair weapons, but the option to repair armor does not appear when I open the repair kit.
Also notice that when I purchase armor or weapon it degrades from 100% to 85% just by equipping. Is this an ABC thing?
Found the problem; actually stumbled upon it (armor repair) when I was looking to fix the crash in the Duty base when opening dialog with Voronin. I needed to DL the beta patch.
I didn't make it!
Well I see you fixed the first thing. In answer to the question about armour and weapons degrading without use, thats an ABC thing. When you go through the 4ish ranks your weapons and junk will be able to be fully repairable. Its a way of simluating your skill with the weapons. As you most likely wont be able to pick off guys with an SVD or an F2000 when you first enter the zone.
