One of the cool things about Borderlands 3 is the ability to gift weapons that you find to friends. Say you find a cool weapon, but it’s not great for your character, you can always give it to a friend who can use it. Gifting in Borderlands 3 is also pretty easy to do and it’s all done through the mail system in the game.
If you’ve yet to discover the mail system, you can find it in the social menu option when pausing the game. This is where you got any of your pre-order bonuses, VIP weapons, etc. Once in the mail menus you will see all of your mail items on the left hand side of the screen.
You don’t just have inbox for your mail, but you have an outgoing mail function as well where you can send mail. This is done by pressing the X Button (Xbox) or the Square Button (PlayStation). Opening the send mail option will then open your backpack, from which you can choose any weapon to send to a friend.
Once you’ve gifted a weapon or item to a friend it cannot be returned to you so choose carefully which guns you want to send to friends. Players do actually have to be on your friends list to have the option to send them the item.
For the receiving player, they can claim the gun that you’ve sent them by going into the mail inbox where they will see a message saying that you’ve gifted them the item or weapon.
