How to Equip Anthem Consumables

Consumables in Anthem are an item that you can either find or craft for yourself. Consumables essentially act as one-off (you equip them for one mission at a time) stat boost items for your character. You can upgrade your character’s health, damage, defense, and more stats by equipping Consumables. Uncommon Consumables will drop all the time for you, whereas the rare ones will be more difficult to find and craft. If you’re looking for Embers to craft high-level Consumables, our Ember Farming Guide is for you.

To begin with, you will only be able to equip one Consumable, but you will unlock the ability to equip two and then three at Pilot Level 20 and 30, respectively. You will definitely want to equip as many Consumables as you can on each mission, but the game does make it a little unclear as to how exactly you do equip Consumables in Anthem.
