⦁ Each electrical panel requires you to have one of the “A set of tools” items in your inventory. These can be bought on the flea market or traded for with Mechanic level 1.
⦁ Each electrical requires you to stand in front of them, holding the “F“ key for 20 seconds while your character repairs the panels.
⦁ After repairing a panel, one of the “A set of tools” items will be removed from your inventory.
⦁ You do not have to repair both panels in one raid, and you do not have to survive the raids in which you repair any of the panels.
⦁ If you have not survived a raid in which you’ve repaired a panel, you simply need to survive ANY other run on Factory.
⦁ If you’re very new to the game and not confident in your ability to survive a raid on Factory, it’s recommended to empty your Secure Container and keep a tool set in it for a pair of raids. You can only repair one panel per raid with this method, but you won’t risk losing the tool set if you die before repairing the panels. The tools do not need to be removed from your secure container in order to repair each panel.
