Informational items are items that display information to the player. An informational item's readout may be toggled by clicking the corresponding icon.

Types[edit | edit source]

Textual informational[edit | edit source]

These display data on the right side of the screen (below the minimap, if it is displayed), as do their toggles if the inventory is open. Despite being accessories (except the Cell Phone), they still function normally when placed in an inventory slot (however they do not function if placed in vanity slots). Nearby players in team multiplayer will also see their information.
