What if you want to carry an item, but your inventory is full? What if your cleric is downed and you need her Scroll of Revivify?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a massive game with many commands and options. If, at some point, you missed how to cycle your items between characters, don’t worry. We’re here to help.

This is how to take items from characters in Baldur’s Gate 3 to optimize your party’s equipment usage.

Open Your Inventory

Item Swapping Inventory 1

This process is as simple as opening your inventory, clicking on the item, and then choosing who gets it.

Open the inventory tab by pressing “I.” It will bring up a screen with the inventories of all active characters in the game.

From there, you can right-click each item and choose which character to send it to by clicking on the “Send To” tab.

Taking items from characters in combat will not cost you any action or bonus action points. You can also take things from players who are dead or down without going near them.

One of the most important things to remember is that you can take Scrolls of Revivify from downed players and revive them with it.

You can also transfer potions to characters who need them the most or transfer a spell scroll to a character that is better positioned to use them. Once you get the hang of it, transferable items can be game-changers in combat.

You should also keep in mind that you can loot anything while in combat. The items taken from enemies can be immediately transferred to the characters who need them most.

Items Aren’t Everything

Sometimes more than one character can make good use of an item held by another, which can surely change the tide of a battle.

However, you might not know the best way to handle a fight until it starts. Therefore, make good use of BG3’s Manual Save option.

That way, you can postpone an important combat encounter until you have the correct items and strategy to deal with it.
