Mementos are consumable items used in Weapon Shaping. They are each obtained from specific activities. Inserting one into a Shaped Weapon will allow the player to unlock cosmetic bonuses for use on that weapon.


Each memento can only be obtained from the activity that it is associated with. They can be slotted into weapons when Shaping or Reshaping them.

Mementos unlock cosmetic bonuses when the weapon reaches certain levels:

  • Level 1: An activity-specific kill tracker is unlocked, alongside the Kill Tracker and Crucible Tracker that are normally on the weapon. This tracker shares its kill count with other weapons that have the same kind of memento equipped.
  • Level 20: A title is unlocked. This title, unlike the titles earned from Triumph Seals, is only visible on the weapon's Details screen.
  • Level 30: An animated shader is unlocked for use on the equipped weapon. This shader does not appear in Collections, and can only be used on shaped weapons with the memento equipped that have reached at least Level 30. The player can preview a memento shader's appearance on a crafted weapon through the shader selection menu; all memento shaders will appear together in the list (though the exact location may vary), regardless of whether or not the player has access to them. Memento shaders can be identified by the word "Keepsake" in their names.

If the weapon has already reached one of these level thresholds, slotting the memento into it will automatically unlock the cosmetic bonus.

Players can hold only one of each type of memento in their inventory at a time, preventing them from earning another until they use it. Mementos are one-time consumables; if one is slotted into a weapon and then removed or replaced with a different memento, it will be lost, along with any bonuses it unlocked.[1]
