How to Equip Weapon Trinkets in Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3 has a lot of options to customize your character. One of the cute things are the weapon trinkets. These are little charms that you can hang off the side of your gun. When Gearbox first revealed the existence of these trinkets I  thought they were useless items. And in some sense, they are useless because they don't add any bonus stats or something. However, now that I played the game, these trinkets are nice little personal touches. Also, gotta catch 'm all.

Equip Weapon Trinkets

That said, now that you collected a trinket, the game doesn’t explain how to equip one of these. To equip a weapon trinket, open up your menu and go to your backpack inventory. Here, you can equip the guns that you are carrying. If you look to your equipped weapons, there is a small empty box to the left of them. By navigating to it, this will open up a new window on the opposite side of the screen with your collection of trinkets. Select one of the trinkets and it will show up on your gun when you use it in the game.

How to get Weapon Trinkets

At the beginning of the game, you won’t have any weapon trinkets. There are 3 ways to how you can get them. Trinkets are part of the loot system in Borderlands 3, so they can drop from enemies or show up in chests. Bosses can drop legendary trinkets or you get them as a quest reward. Another way to get weapon trinkets is to shop at Crazy Earl on Sanctuary 3. He will sell you various cosmetic items for Eridium.
