Deathloop Trinkets are a vital way to buff both your weapon and character abilities as try to break the loop. They're little glowing amulets that add new effect to guns, or Colt, when equipped. Thy can be dropped by enemies, found hidden around, or gained as rewards from missions and challenges. Some of them, like the ones that boost your health and ability power, are near essential. While others that can increase damage range, improve aiming and so on let you fine tune a loadout - whether that's for a specific mission, or a certain playstyle. They're very useful basically and if you want to know what the best Deathloop Trinkets are and how you can get more to use, we'll cover all of that here.

What are the Deathloop trinket levels?

For both Dealthoop weapon and character trinkets you'll find Crude, Sleek and Exemplar versions which are grey, blue and purple (although the blue ones glow green on the floor). These roughly map out as 'common', 'rare' and 'epic' level drops with whatever effect they have ramping up from 'slightly' to 'moderately' and eventually 'greatly' affecting whatever they alter. 

It's obviously always worth swapping out lower level Trinkets for higher powered ones as you progress. And when you do replace the ones you use with better options, feel free to sacrifice them for the Residium you need to save gear when you loop. With weapons you might want to keep a few copies as you can equip three guns, but with Character Trinkets Colt can only ever equip one so there's no point hanging on to duplicates.

Deathloop weapon trinkets can be used to buff and improve your guns, with the level of weapon affecting how many you can add. Crude/common/grey weapons can take a single Trinket, Sleek/blue/rare take two and Exemplar/purple/epic stack three. Whatever you go for you'll want to play to a weapon's strengths. So buffing a Spiker's range and accuracy over distance will extend your stealth capabilities. Extending damage range will help shotguns, while damping down recoil will improve SMGs.

The various Deathloop character Trinkets buff and improve a range of Colt’s abilities. There is a core set you'll probably want to equip most of the time, as well as a few - like gas immunity - you'll be swapping in for specific missions. We've marked the best basic Deadloop Character Trinkets you'll want to rock most of the time below. The boost to health, the power that fuels your abilities, and damage reduction, will let you fight longer. While the double jump will get you just about anywhere, so you can equip something other than the Shift teleport ability. But, as we mentioned, swap things in and out when you're dealing with a specific problem.  

For the most part these Tickets will drop randomly from enemies and Visionaries but we've detailed any that appear to have fixed origin.
