Dark Souls 2 players can now enjoy the game at 60fps, without worrying about weapons breaking every ten minutes.

The long-standing durability bug in Dark Souls 2 has been fixed in a patch that went live on PC a few hours ago.

The patch is very small and while From Software has not announced it going live, reports on Reddit and Steam suggest that it does indeed fix the issue.

The bug tied the weapons’ degradation rate to the game’s frame-rate. Meaning anyone running the game at 60fps would need to repair their weapons twice as often as those who run the game at 30fps. This made some weapons barely usable and required players to always carry two or three extra main weapons, or plenty of Repair Powder.
