Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Deathloop’s Trinkets are a way to upgrade Colt and his weapons. In this Deathloop guide, we’ll list every Trinket (that we’ve found so far), and give some recommendations for the best Trinkets.

Trinkets, explained

Deathloop’s Trinkets are buffs that improve or upgrade either Colt or his weapons. Think of them like gems in other video games. You find them, you equip them, and you gain their powers.

Colt can have up to four Character Trinkets at any time, offering him buffs like increased damage from behind, and reduced damage from falling.

Weapon Trinkets are a little more complicated. The number of Trinkets a weapon can have depends on its rarity. A green (Crude) weapon has one Trinket slot, blue (Sleek) weapons have two, and purple (Exemplar) and gold (unique) weapons have three.

Trinkets also have quality — Crude, Sleek, and Exemplar. The better the quality, the stronger the Trinket’s effect.

Weapon Trinkets

We’ve listed all the Weapon Trinkets we’ve found in the table below. We will update this list as we find more.

Deathloop Weapon Trinkets

Quick Draw Switch weapons faster General
Shock Absorber Reduced recoil Accuracy
Speedloader Faster reload Reload
Stopping Power Damaging enemies slows health regeneration Damage
Straight Shooter Aimed shot accuracy increased Accuracy
Sure Shot Increased accuracy range Accuracy

Best Weapon Trinkets

The best weapon Trinket depends on the weapon you’re using. Vopat Trencher shotguns and Rapier sniper rifles basically require a Speedloader Trinket to be useful since they take so long to reload.

More generally, though, increased accuracy and range are always good. That makes the Lightning Strike, Shock Absorber, and Sure Shot Trinkets safe bets every time.

Character Trinkets

Character Trinkets give Colt a buff. Since you don’t have stats in Deathloop, this is the best (and only) way to increase your health or power. Mix and match your Trinkets to deal with challenges as they arise.

Best Character Trinkets

Hands down, the best Character Trinket is Spring Heeled. Adding a double-jump makes moving around much, much easier.

Since Colt isn’t exactly tough and a few bullets will take him thdown, the Hard Headed and Turtle Shell Trinkets are always good to have.

We constantly use our Slab Powers, so we always have Renewable equipped, too.
