Drowned are able to pick up items and weapons, but do not recognize tridents as a weapon and so only pick one up if not holding an item already.
- Summon a drowned that can pick up items
- Give it a trident
→ The drowned will pickup the trident
- Give it any sword, such as a wooden sword
→ The drowned will prefer the sword over the trident even though it does less attack damage
