The Bounty Hunter can steal durability when you kill another player to randomly repair gear!
It can repair up to 16% Durability, split between up to 4 friendly ships in the sector.
How much is repaired depends on the gear your target is wearing, and the rarity of your Bounty Hunter item.
It might repair items which are already at 100%, so you can see gear above 100% Durability.
It can repair Common rarity items, but not items at 1% Durability.
To prevent exploits, your target must have a certain threshold of quality gear for this to trigger.
Note: This item does NOT increase durability loss for your opponent.
Caution: Killing allies to get easy and free repairs is outside of the spirit of the game and considered an exploit. If you are caught, you and the person you cheated with will receive large durability damage penalties across ALL your gear.
XP for PvP Kills
When you kill another player, you will earn XP based on the target's level and the rarity of your Bounty Hunter.
The XP can be significant. Killing a Level 100 player with an Ultimate Bounty Hunter equipped is worth 2,200 XP with MindSurge bonus.
