Deathloop is filled with all sorts of fun character and weapon trinkets that you can use to become stronger. This is why I put together this complete list of all the character trinkets you can equip. Anything from increasing your max health to hacking enemy mines. Take a look at our list below to put together the perfect build.
Also, near the bottom of our guide has recommendations for the best trinkets to equip. Certain ones are better for different playstyles. But at the same time, certain ones aren’t really worth using at all.
All Character Trinkets in Deathloop
Each of the tables below list the trinket name and the description provided in-game. However, it’s possible descriptions may vary slightly depending on the rarity of the item. For example, a gray rarity item may say “slightly increases health” while a purple one says, “greatly increases health”. Regardless, the purpose of what it does still gets across.
It’s also worth mentioning that certain trinkets only have one rarity/version of them. For example, the early character trinket Spring Heeled that lets you double jump is only purple. So you’ll never find it as a different rarity. And finally, the trinkets below aren’t listed in any particular order.
Make sure to infuse trinkets that you like so you don’t lose them when the loop resets.

Best Character Trinkets in Deathloop
Before getting into the best character trinkets to equip, it’s always worth mentioning that this is strictly my opinion. Thankfully I was able to put a lot of time into Deathloop pre-release to track down all the trinkets above. This has helped with finding the ones I like best.
Spring Heeled – While you do get this first early on, I love it for getting around the map combined with the Shift slab. However, you can likely get rid of it and just rely on Shift if you prefer. With that said, this is a quieter option while playing as Julianna.
Juiced Up – Getting an extra energy bar is huge for both playing as Colt and Julianna. It helps you get that tiny bit more out of your abilities really taking advantage. Even if you’re just using it to teleport through an area quickly.
Master Hacker – This makes it a heck of a lot quicker to hack devices in Deathloop. I love to use this for hacking turrets facing me without getting hit because it’s relatively fast. Also, this is a great character trinket for hacking doors open quickly when you’re playing quietly.
Extended Signal – This trinket lets you hack devices from extremely far away. This is especially powerful when combining it with Master Hacker so you never have to worry about enemy devices.
Never Say Die – This is useful if you find yourself struggling to stay alive since it increases your maximum health. I love this especially when playing as Julianna to help tank those tough hits.
Golden Harvest – If you’re trying to gather up Residuum and infuse more gear, you can use this to get more Residuum. It just makes you get more when harvesting it in-game. Which you can likely use to take advantage of the secret Updaam cave safe.
Turtle Shell – For those of you that play aggressive, you’ll want Turtle Shell to take less damage. This will help you stay alive especially paired with Never Say Die.
Mine Own – This character trinket is more of a fun one that’s situational. It lets you hack mines that you can even detonate remotely.
That’s all there is to this Deathloop guide on all character trinkets you can find and equip. If you come across one that’s not on our list, feel free to comment below and we’ll add it. What trinket do you think is the best?
