A Diagnostic/Repair Module instantly regenerates 15 Hit Points upon use. The item can be extracted from large (Maintenance, Security and Assault) Robots if the player has the Cyber-Assimilation O/S Upgrade installed.

Advanced models of robots contain self-modification circuitry and special Nanite stores for repair and replacement parts. After the Dubuque Autodoc Scandal of 2025, programmed failsafes were implemented to prevent robots from "accidentally" generating new functionality, such as weapons. Additionally, the D/RM can be used by hackers and other heavily modified humans for their own healing, leading to slash-and-run robberies of unaccompanied robots such as Protocol Droids.


  • Without the Cyber-Assimilation O/S Upgrade this item is useless, as the summoned Modules cannot be used.
