  • As of 1.05: The "Infinite Duct Tape glitch" no longer works. This involved players restraining their own hands, and then removing the duct tape from their hands. This would completely replenish the duct tape to full value.
  • As of 1.09: duct tape can no longer be used to repair weapons and their attachments.
  • In an older version Duct Tape could be used instead of Bandages or Rags to be applied to wounds.
