Compact tool kit used to keep a Rifle or Revolver in good working order.
In-game description

The firearm cleaning kit (formerly, the rifle cleaning kit) is a tool for cleaning the hunting rifle and the revolver.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The firearm cleaning kit, in conjunction with the rifle maintenance gameplay mechanic, is used for cleaning guns to keep them in optimal condition. It will not be an indefinite solution, and, at some point, a hand-made distance weapon will be needed to replace worn firearms.[1]

The cleaning kit weighs a mere 0.10 kilograms. It can be found inside of the Mountaineer's Hut, the Derailment and Quonset Gas Station, among other locations.

Game history[edit | edit source]

The rifle cleaning kit was introduced on 16 December 2015 in version 0.298, also known as the Timberwolf Mountain update. As of the Steadfast Ranger update on 06 May 2019, the item's name has been changed to Firearm cleaning kit, as it can be used on both the rifle and the revolver.
