To purchase a Patch Up Service in Fortnite, you need to speak to either the Peely or Katara NPC character or buy one from a Mending Machine.

As of writing, it seems Peely and Katara are the only NPC characters who will sell you a Patch Up Service.

If you’re looking to complete the Chapter 5 Season 2 Week 6 quest Purchase the Patch Up service from Characters of Mending Machines, you’re best off finding and speaking to Peely.

Peely can be found at a campsite on a hill just south of Restored Reels, and is next to a campfire - which you can light to cause damage to yourself so you can buy the healing service.

To see where exactly Peely is, you’re best off checking this super helpful YouTube video by Comrad3s:

If you’re looking to find a Mending Machine (or Katara) instead, the fine folks at Fortnite.gg have created an invaluable interactive map which shows the locations of every Mending Machine, as well as Peely and Katara. Check it out below:

Purchasing a Patch Up Service will set you back 100 Gold Bars, but is totally worth it if you have no healing items to hand. You’ll need to have lost some health to purchase a Patch Up Service, too.

If you’re down on Gold Bars, you can pick up more by completing a Bounty, completing quests given to you by NPCs, searching Cash Registers, eliminating opponents, in chests etc... It’s not difficult to find more Gold Bars simply by playing the game as normal.

One important thing to note: it looks like you can't buy a Patch Up Service unless you actually need healing, so you'll have to take some damage before trying to buy one!
