There are only two ways you can repair weapons in Enshrouded. The first of them becomes available in the first hours of the game since you only need to interact with the Workbench for your equipment to restore all its durability.

Fortunately, the Workbench is crafted quite simply from 3 Strings and 8 Wooden Logs. Logs can be obtained by chopping down trees with an axe, while Strings can be crafted from Plant Fibers. Alternatively, you can find Strings by breaking destructible objects, such as barrels, but in the first stages, the crafting will be faster.

Then, all you have to do is place your brand-new Workbench at your base. The best thing about this mechanic is that you don't have to collect or spend any resources to repair weapons and other tools in Enshrouded. Just click on the Craft and Repair button next to Workbench and all your equipment will magically restore durability

As for the second method, it is suitable in cases where you are far from the base and do not want to waste time on fast travelling. You can find Anvil Tables throughout the world. These abandoned structures can repair your weapons in Enshrouded just as well as Workbenches. And it won't cost you any resources either. But it is important to note that, unlike the Workbench, Anvil Tables can only repair equipment. If you want to craft something, you still have to return to the base or craft another Workbench.

That's all you need to know about how to repair weapons in Enshrouded. Your equipment will save your life on more than one occasion, so you should keep it in good condition. This is especially true if you're going to fight bandits since you don't want your weapon to break in the middle of a fight.
