"Repair tools can bring base turrets, generators, and sensors back online. They can also repair vehicles. This tool has been modified for longer range, but repairs slightly slower." In-Game Description
The LR Repair Tool differs from the Improved Repair Tool in several ways. Primarily, as its name suggests, the LR Repair Tool has significantly longer range. Range comes at the cost of a decreased repair rate, however it allows the Technician much more flexibility to avoid enemy fire when repairing. Additionally, the damage done to enemy assets and vehicles using the Mechanic perk is not reduced, making this tool a much better option for Technicians wishing to make use of that ability.
