The Hardened Screwdriver is a basic tool. It is a variant of the Screwdriver and repairs 25% faster than the screwdriver.
The Hardened Screwdriver's primary function is to perform electrical repairs on certain installations, namely Nuclear Reactors, Junction Boxes, Navigation Terminals, Sonar Monitors, Status Monitors, Batteries and Supercapacitors.
Lastly, it can be swung at enemies for a weak melee attack. The Hardened variant is 30% slower than the regular Screwdriver, and almost 50% slower than the Dementonite Screwdriver. However it has slightly higher Lacerations damage than the latter, as well as 25% armor penetration and a light Radiation Sickness effect.
Hardened Screwdrivers are held with one hand. Left-clicking on an installation or electrical component with the tool equipped will open up its connection panel menu. Rewiring while below level 55 Electrical Engineering presents a risk of failure, which interrupts the rewiring and inflicts Burn 5 and Stun 5 sec. Pressing on an installation in needs of repairs will start fixing it. Doing so while below level 55 Electrical Engineering will take longer.
