Weapons found in the game are automatically added to your inventory. However, in order to use it, you must first equip it.

How to change weapons?
Unfortunately, you can't switch weapons simply by pressing the buttons. Weapon switching is tied to the skills you use and happens automatically.
You select a weapon by selecting the ability it is assigned to. For example, a rogue can wield ranged and melee weapons. To use the latter, you need to use a melee skill.
If you are using a skill that can be performed by any weapon, the game will automatically choose the one that is best suited for this. However, if you currently have an equipped weapon that is not assigned to any of the abilities, you will not be able to use it.
