How to repair weapons in Lies of P

To repair your weapon in Lies of P, it's as simple as interacting with your belt items like you would with health, consumables, or throwables. By selecting the right tool with the D-pad and holding down the interact button (on PS5, this is the square button), Pinocchio will use his Legion Arm to sharpen the blade.

Given how important it is for your survival, weapon repair in Lies of P is fortunately a fairly simple process, but it can be easy to forget or overlook. The key to weapon maintenance is to ensure that Pinocchio has a Grindstone on one of his belts. It is with this that you can improve your weapon's health.

Be sure to keep an eye out for other Grindstones, because there are a few of them scattered throughout Krat that can give your weapon a temporary ability. Aside from repairing your weapons, they can also give them temporary effect bonuses, such as adding fire damage.

How to check weapon health in Lies of P

Aside from Pinocchio's health bar, your weapon integrity is arguably the most important section of your player hub in Lies of P. After all, it is just as crucial that you can dish out as much punishment as you can cop.

Each time your blade finds a home in an enemy's chest, the blade's edge will dull a bit. At first, this isn't an issue, however as your weapon deteriorates, it can have a significant impact on the amount of damage you can deliver.


In order to keep an eye on your weapon's health, you can take a look at the bottom-right of the screen, where your Fable Art meters are located. The bar directly above them indicates how strong your blade is and, in extension, how effective it is in combat. It's a sound strategy to repair it at any pause in the action, but it's essential when the bar gets low. Read on to find out about weapon repair.
