Picking up items from the ground in video games seems to be as old as time. Though in some games, you suck them up like an incredibly powerful vacuum cleaner, you don't have to be near them, and they come flying towards you! Not going to lie; it's incredibly handy. In Vigil: The Longest Night, it's back to picking up items from the ground. You can tell what can be picked up because they are shiny! Some items are consumable, such as health potions, but you can also pick up are consumable weapons. So how do you pick up and use items in Vigil: The Longest Night?
How to pick up items?
Picking up items is incredibly easy; if you find something shiny, head up to it and press up on the analog stick. Do not press up on the D-Pad as that will use up one of your health potions - we learned this the hard way! It's really as easy as that!
How to use items?
You can set items to a quick menu that you can access by holding RB. This will bring up an item wheel that you can rotate by pressing left or right on the left analog stick. Highlight the item that you want to use, and then to use it, just press RB. If you have selected an item that you only have one of, then the item will disappear from the quick menu upon use.
To add an item into your quick item menu, press start, then select Inventory. On this screen, find the item you want to use, like Throwing Knives or Molotovs, select the item, and then press A. Then on the right side of the screen, under Quick Item, you can choose where you place the item; you've got 8 spaces to choose from. In an item space, just hit A again, and the item will be placed in your quick item menu.
