Anointed guns in Your weapon slots

For example : If I have the anointed buff ‘‘rakk attack does 50% more damage’’ on my 3th weapon, But i’m using my 2th slot weapon does the 50% damage bonus still apply?

and If so, how good is it then to just wear weapons with you to give you buffs while not using them.

The buffs only work when that weapon is in your hands.

ok thanks for the reply!
