Description[ | ]

Ratchet is a tier 2 Disassemble Tool used to disassemble various mechanical and electrical blocks. For more information, see Wrench

As a Weapon[ | ]

When used as a weapon, the Ratchet is a short range melee weapon that is slightly weaker than the wrench, as well as having a rather poor hitbox, so it should only be used as a weapon for specific challenges or as a last resort.

The recipe above contains the Resources/Magazines needed for each Quality level of the Ratchet.
A higher Quality item may provide better stats at the cost of increased material and unlock requirements.

Repair[ | ]

The condition of a Ratchet deteriorates with each use until eventually it will stop working and will need to be repaired. This can be done using a Repair Kit.
