Chances are, in your opening hour or so of playing Arkane’s time-looping shooter, you came across one of the Deathloop Glowing Items. No matter how hard you try, they simply won’t let you interact with them. But there’s got to be reason a can is glowing all multicolored like that. Well, you’re not wrong, and this guide is here to help explain all. Here’s what Residuum-infused items are and how to use glowing items in Deathloop.
What Are Glowing Items in Deathloop?
Chances are you spotted a can that seemed to be glowing and was all multi-colored in your opening moments in Updaam. Specifically, this pesky lil’ thing:
The good news is that you’re right that it does something. The bad news is that you won’t actually be able to use this until you’ve completed the ‘Ubiquity’ mission.
Residuum is what’s causing these items to glow and look all multi-colored. It’s essentially a resource you’ll use to infuse your favorite weapons, Trinkets and Slabs so you can carry them over into a new loop in the rather unfortunate — but very likely — event of your death and you’re forced to start over again.
How to Use Residuum-Infused Items
After completing the Ubiquity mission, you’ll then be able to return to any of these Deathloop glowing items and press and hold Square to absorb the Residuum and add it to your stockpile.
How to Infuse Weapons, Trinkets & Slabs with Residuum
Once you’ve got enough Residuum, head to the Loadout menu between the different areas of Black Reef and you’ll then be able to use the ‘Infuse Gear’ option.
From here, simply select what type of gear you want to infuse using up and down on the d-pad. You can choose from Weapons, Slabs, Character Trinkets, Weapon Trinkets and Slab Upgrades.
Now all you need to do is select the gear you want to infuse, select it and then press and hold X to infuse it. You’ll be shown the Infusion cost when you highlight the item, so you can check you’ve got enough to Residuum to go ahead with it.
If you don’t, you’ll need to go ahead and search for more Deathloop glowing items, or take down some Visionaries, as these often have plenty of Residuum to harvest.
That’s everything you need to know about Deathloop glowing items and how to get Residuum-infused items. For more tips, tricks and guides, head over to our wiki, or see more of our coverage on the game below.
