That's a big problem in seo. It will affect to your website traffic and rank. You add robots.txt, robots.txt seems like-
User-agent: *
Disallow: //
Disallow: //

USE XML Sitemap generator tool . 9.9$ p.m not a very big cost & they crawl full website & tells where & how many broken links in our website. Broken links always hurt the SEO of website.

First of all are these broken incoming links or internal ones?

If they are internal ones you can use the W3C Link Checker to find broken internal and outgoing links from your site. It is free.

If they are broken incoming links,
-are they from some site that scraped links and snippets? This happened to one of my sites. They scrape snippets from places c/w inactive urls and do a poor job presenting them in their pages. Things get mashed together and GoogleBot isn't smart enough to figure it out. Those I ignored and the eventually went away when Google clued in they were spam sites.

-If some are good sites that made a typing error when referencing them you could use 301 permanent redirects to salvage the incoming link by directinng it (them) to the correct url.

Its important to fix broken links or else it will hurt the online authority of the site or its online reputation. Remove the 404 pages from search engines index or else 301 redirect it to the relevant pages.

If you have broken links try to use 301 redirection or put a 404 page in your website... This will help you both user and search engine.

If the site is on Wordpress, then there are some plugins which handle this work, they would help in 301-redirect of your broken link to home page or any desired page.

If broken links are from your site, it will really hurt your site rankings.
If broken links are from other domain, it doesn't effect.

Always try broken link checker tool before you live your site.
