It is one of the few weapons that allow the player to swim while wielding it. Its main purpose is aiding with drift net fishing, where it gives an increased chance to scare off fish shoals into the net. It shares this effect with the trident of the seas. The trident has no attack level requirements and is a 2-handed weapon.
When attempting to equip the trident underwater, players will receive the following message: "WARNING! If you have this item equipped you can not swim. Deeper water will kill you." However, once inside the shallow water of the Hunter area, you can safely equip the merfolk trident by selecting "I'll steer clear of deeper water but wield this anyway." It is not possible to swim through the seaweed door with a weapon equipped.
The trident can be charged with up to 10 pufferfish, which will let players use the Channel option to regain breath underwater, as with regular pufferfish.
