Dropping Items in Borderlands 3

To start dropping items, open up your inventory. You should hopefully know how to do this by now, but on PC, you can pres the ‘I’ key. On the right hand side, you can see your backpack with all of the items you are currently carrying.

Hover over an item you want to drop

Hover over any item you want to drop. In the bottom right corner, press the corresponding button for ‘Drop’. On PC, you can drop items by holding down the X key. Just pressing it won’t actually drop an item.

Once dropped, you can pick it back up or allow someone in your lobby to take it instead. If you’re just looking to free up inventory space, it’s a good idea to sell items for cash or store them in the bank.
