A Wrench is a general purpose tool. The Wrench is used to repair many objects in-game, from damaged vehicles to even destroyed bridges. It can also be used to defuse explosives.
It is issued to Engineer-related classes/kits, as well as Battlefield 1943's Infantry kit. Wrenches of all kinds have been featured in every Battlefield game to date, though its repair role is notably replaced by the Repair Tool or Blowtorch in later games.
The Wrench makes its first appearance with the engineer kit in Battlefield 1942. It is capable of repairing friendly or neutral vehicles, with a limited repair amount before it needs to be allowed to cool down. The usage of the wrench can significantly increase the lifespan of a vehicle.
The Wrench is the only vehicle repair tool available to the engineer in Battlefield Vietnam, although the Blowtorch also makes an appearance as a designated anti-vehicle weapon. Like most of its other iterations, there is a limited amount of "healing" the wrench can do before the player needs to wait for the wrench's healing "ammunition" to be replenished.
World War IIEdit
In the pre-packaged World War II mod for Battlefield Vietnam, the wrench remains the Engineer's vehicle repair tool.
The wrench in Battlefield Heroes behaves similarly to bandages: armor is restored over a brief period, with the amount restored corresponding to the quality of wrench used. Only the driver of a vehicle may repair it. Wrenches also put out fires caused by Burning Bullets. Should the vehicle receive further damage, the repair effect is cancelled.
Each wrench has a limited number of uses, and must be purchased with Valor Points. Only one kind of wrench can be equipped at a time.
