A small, spherical object with a handle on one end and a number of extended tool arms opposite, the Viridian V-Badge Auto-Repair Unit repairs a broken device or weapon regardless of the skill of the user. The item is single use. It does not use any Nanites.
The Auto-Repair Unit is marketed as a repair tool. The A-RU scans the target object and then rebuilds it virtually from scratch.
- This unit is useful for a player who hasn't put points into Repair. Since many of the weapons and Replicators you'll find have been broken, the Auto-Repair Unit can come in quite handy indeed.
- These are a bit more common than other one-time tools, so the player can rely on them in more situations.
- The Auto-Repair Unit, contrary to its flavor text, does not improve a weapon's condition, only repairs it from a "broken" state. It is best supplemented with Maintenance Tools.
- ARU is the only way to fix a Turret that has had an ICE node activated during unsuccessful hacking.
