TF2 Trading Site list – Trade TF2 items (Buying & Selling, Forums, Shops)

There’s quite a few sites related to Team Fortress 2 trading out there, some good and some are bad, in this post I will try and guide you through this jungle of sites and showing you some of my favourite sites when it comes to TF2 trading. I’ll be covering sites you buy & sell hats and items on, places you can buy items for real money, trading forums & servers. If there’s any topic you think I am missing feel free to get in touch via Steam or in the comments of this post.

A few of the links in this guide are affiliate links, using them will earn the site a small revenue

TF2 trading sites for buying & Selling

I will start of the list with some TF2 sites where you can sell your silly little hats on. These sites are for advertising your trades or finding what other people are selling.

TF2Outpost is one of the bigger and more active places for TF2 trading, here you can make listings for buying or selling TF2 items or browse other people’s listings to find yourself a deal. The site doesn’t just support TF2 items, you can make listings for all Steam items. The site has a premium option that gives you more listings and auto bumps your listings every 30 minutes or so, but I would only recommend the premium if your a heavy user of the site.

Backpack.tf is also a great place to list your items up for sale, the site offer pretty easy navigation and it’s easier to find the best deals & prices for a item just because the prices are sorted from lowest to highest, might not sound like a awesome feature but compared to TF2Outpost this site is so much easier to use. It’s also a good place to check the value of items, if your unsure what a item is worth just do a quick search on Backpack.tf and you can find it’s suggested price over there.

Dispenser.tf is a site that helps you list your items and also automate the trading process, it’s defiantly one of my favourite sites when it comes to Steam trading. You can get a free bot that you put your items on, you set your price and then buyers can come to the site to trade and the bot will do the trade for you, very convenient for both sellers & buyers.

Sadly the site is not that active any more since Steam make Steam game gifts not tradeable.

Bazaar.tf is a similar trading site like TF2outpost where you can list your items for sale and find others listings. The site isn’t as popular or active but the site has a bunch of nice features making it worth checking out nonetheless, for example you can get your own trading bot on the site for some sweet automated trading. And it’s very easy to navigate through listings and deals.

Trade.tf is a site packed with a bunch of features all traders should check out. They have a Good deals page where the site scans the major trading sites for good deals. But there’s also a part of the site that’s called the Trading market, here people can use the sites inbuilt trading bot feature to make trades for them. The bot is free to use for anyone, you just tell the bot what items you want to sell and for how much, then the bot will do the trading for you.

The trading market on Trade.tf is also a good place to find things to buy, everything people list using the bot ends up here, you can just search for any TF2 item you want to buy, another great thing is that all these trades will be almost instantly accepted just because they are made by bots.

/r/TF2trade is a subreddit that’s all about trading TF2 items, here you can list your items or reply and make offers on other peoples trades. Mostly unusual trades are going on in this subreddit but you can make listings for any kind of TF2 trade, just make sure you read the rules before posting, so you format your post correctly and stuff like that, you know how picky Reddit can be about those things.

TF2 Cash trading

In this category I will list a few shops that sell TF2 items, If your looking for places to buy items for real money directly from other traders I suggest you head over to Sourceop trading forum or Backpack.tf forum . The rest of the list in this category will be shops that deal with Tf2 items, all are selling for real money and some you can even sell your own stuff there.

Opskins is mainly a place where people buy & sell CS:Go skins, but it’s also possible to buy TF2 hats & items on OPSkins. You can also put up your own items up for sale and sell them for real money, great if your looking to cash out of TF2. Just keep in mind that there’s always a fee on selling on all these kinds of shops. (10% or 5% if you have a paid monthly membership)

The unusual section can be a bit tricky to navigate, just because the suggested price is usually incorrect for unusuals.

Marketplace.tf is a shop that’s only devoted to TF2 hats and items, and it’s the biggest TF2 shop around. You can buy and sell everything from keys to unusuals here, and it’s possible to get a some nice deals on the site. If you’re looking into buying or selling unusuals for cash this is the best option for sure. It’s owned by the same people that behind Scrap.tf & Backpack.tf.

Marketplace accepts Paypal & Credit cards as payment on the site.

Bitskins is another CSGO marketplace that branched out and started supporting buying & selling items from other Steam games, TF2 included. As the name tells they have specialised in Bitcoin, and you can both buy and sell using bitcoin (but they also have other payment options like Paypal for example). But the best part about Bitskins is the sales fee, which is among the lowest around for shops like this, it’s only 5%, making it great for cashing out and selling off your inventory for some cash.

G2A is the game store that has also jumped on to the pixel hat market and started selling a bunch of different Steam items including TF2 & CSGO skins and items. It’s not easiest website to browse and you’ll notice quite fast it’s not optimised for browsing the skins section, but if you can bare with having a slight headache you can find a few good deals here. Also stay away from G2A Shield, it’s not necessary and a nightmare to cancel. They accept pretty much any payment, everything from Paypal, Paysafe and Bitcoins.

TF2 Trading forums

SourceOP has a pretty inactive forum for trading and as mentioned before you can find quite a few traders wanting to sell/buy for real money here.

Backpack.tf’s forum would probably be the biggest forum around, you can find both cash and item trading sections here and also a section for Team Fortress 2 Economy discussions.

Last forum on the list is the Steam Community TF2 Trading forum which is a forum on the official steam website. One of the most busiest forums around with a lot of post for sales being posted all the time, in my opinion this place feels a bit spammy and cluttered thou, just way to many post about ridiculous trades nobody want to do, but I don´t have that much experience about the forum so I might be wrong.

TF2 Trading servers

I personally don’t like or use TF2 trade servers but I know a lot of people do, I got some help building this list but if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them because I´m a bit clueless when it comes to servers really. Hopefully this can get you started with finding a server you like.

  • Neonheights servershas 7 trading servers up and running.
  • PyroProtectMe Trade Server for regular and unusual trading.
  • Darkly Gaming Trading servers has 6 servers up can running, check the link to find the IP for them.
  • Harpoon Gaming has 4 servers online.
  • Backpack.tf server list is a list filled with all the server that are using the Backpack.tf Price Check plugin, There’s a shitload of servers in this list and not all are trader servers, but chances are pretty high that it’s a trade server if they are using that plugin.
  • Over at Gameserver Directory there’s a list of trading servers you can check out.

Other useful TF2 trading websites & tools

STNtrading is a similar site to Scrap.tf where you can trade with the sites bots to fast and easy sell or buy items. It’s not as big as it’s competitor but the prices that they pay for your items is usually better then on Scrap.tf. Keep in mind that if you would instead sell/buy your items with another trader instead of these two banking sites you’d most likely get a better deal, but using these sites is fast and convenient.

Calculator.tf is a simple tool that’s great for any TF2 trader. It’s basically a calculator that let’s you convert between the different TF2 currencies (keys, metal and real money). For example you can type in how many keys you have and then the calculator will tell you how much metal/money those keys are worth. Great when you need to calculate some trade fast.

If you have any suggestions of your own feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll might add it to the list.

Как поднять свой инвентарь Team Fortress 2 трейдом в Steam

Всем привет. В этой теме расскажу о том, как поднять свой инвентарь в Steam ( вещами из Team Fortress 2) трейдом. Скажу сразу, что желательно иметь 5+ уровень в Steam, опыт в игре TF 2, инвентарь стоимостью 7-10 ключей и немного разбираться в системе трейдинга игры.
Для начала вам придется продать ваши вещи в TF2 за ключи или же метал. (опять же если у вас точно выйдет на 7-10 ключей)
Делаем это на сайтах :

1) backpack — тут мы узнаем цену предметам, так же это ориентировка для следующих сайтов
2) scrap.tf — тут продаем оружие, так же можно strange оружие и обычные дешевые шапки если цена адекватна.
3) tf2mart — тут мы можем продавать более дорогие предметы, на этом сайте система баллов за каждую вещь, поэтому при установке окна продажи, всегда смотрите на то, сколько метала вы получите, не забываем что сайт часто занижает реальную стоимость вещей, но если она не критична, то продаем.
4) tf2outpost — Этот сайт будет нашей основной площадкой для трейда, так же на нем выставляем все остальные вещи, которые не продали на других трейд сайтах.
5) Вам нужно создать кликабельные ссылки на ваши профили и трейд оффер.

Итак, вы продали некоторые вещи, и у вас есть 7-10 ключей.

Вам нужно создать трейд на tf2outpost По скупке квикселлом ( минус 30-40% цены) Unusual шапок.
Он должен выглядеть примерно так:

Думаю многие знают как сделать цветной шрифт, кто не знает — вот тут .

Дожидаться офферов будет глупо, поэтому идем и офферим людям сами, для трейдинга мы будем использовать ТОЛЬКО шапки 1-2 гена эффектов.
гены эффектов можно посмотреть тут
( 1 gen = 14 эффектов, которые могут быть получены из любого ящика с тиражом от #1 до #25. ( изображения на сайте)
( 2 gen = 8 эффектов, которые могут быть получены из любого ящика с тиражом от #26 до #57. ( изображения на сайте)

Далее, идем на сайт backpack.tf и открываем сверху вкладку trading > unusual pricelist > и жмем на фильтр — browse by effect.
Тут мы увидим все эффекты на шапки. Сейчас я покажу какие эффекты мы точно будем брать:

Да тут отсутствуют некоторые эффекты из 1-2 гена из за сложности продажи и не популярности.

Для начала вам нужно будут эффекты — Steaming \ smoking \ orb.fire \ Blizz storm \ Stormy storm

1) Открываем эффект Steaming > и проматываем вниз пока не увидим шапки ценой 10-12 ключей.
2) Ищем хорошие шапки на классы Скаут\солдат\демо ( они самые популярные и быстро продаются, никогда не берите шапки на хеви\спая\инжа)
3) Как только нашли, наводим курсор на шапку и жмем «Outpost» это будет пересылка на сайт Аутпоста с поиском людей которые продают эту шапку, иногда эта ссылка не открывается, поэтому жмем Stats и жмем уже на эту шапку там.
4) Как только мы нашли продавца, открываем его трейд, не обращаем внимания на цену B\O ( цена выкупа, обычно пишут кол-во ключей)
5) Далее, к примеру если шапка стоит 10 ключей предлагаем 7 ( пишем в комментарии 7 keys pure for «название шапки» ), если 11-12 то 8 ключей. И тд.
6) Не забываем что большинство продавцов хотят выгодно продать свой товар, и ваш коммент они просто отклонят, поэтому делаем это на ВСЕХ хороших шапках для демо\скаута\солдата с выше перечисленными эффектами ( Steaming \ smoking \ orb.fire \ Blizz storm \ Stormy storm )

ВАЖНО. Если ваше предложение приняли ОБЯЗАТЕЛЬНО проверьте на дюп шапку ( заходим на steamrep — вставляем ссылку профиля Steam продавца, открываем его backpack.tf профиль, ищем нужную шапку, находим и ждем History — тут смотрим историю, если дюп то сверху будет большая красная табличка This item duplicated)

Если после проверки все отлично, покупаем эту шапку за нашу цену.
Теперь, как только купили, сразу создаем trade на аутпосте, он должен выглядеть примерно так

Далее идем опять на backpack.tf и ищем шапки стоящие дороже вашей на 1-3 ключа ( или с разрывом цены к примеру 13-15 ключей, а ваша 12-13)

1) Пишем в комменты офер который будет выглядеть так — «ссылка на outpost трейд» — далее пишем ( название шапки \ эффект \ не дюпаная ) «
( пример ( modest pile of hat with bubling non duped )
2) Спамим это на все хорошие шапки демо\солда\скаута с выше перечисленными эффектами.
3) как только подниметесь до шапок 20+ ключей, начинаем предлагать на более дорогие эффекты но с примерно такой же ценой.
4) После такого трейда если вы заимели хорошую шапку стоимостью 40-60 ключей, лучше продавайте ее за хорошие предложения ключей\австралиум оружия и промо предметов. Не забываем просить переплату (overpay) за плату НЕ в ключах.
5) Если на ваш трейд предлагают 3 ген\дюп вещь\крафт номера\винтаж вещи\гифт вещи всегда отклоняем
6) Рассматриваем только хорошие предложения шапок с нормальным эффектом\ценой и не забываем про переплату.

Так же советую создать трейд по скупке разных стренжей\красок за цену чуть ниже рыночной, пример:

Сейчас я покажу шапки на которые стоит обратить внимание при трейде. ( основные ВСЕГДА будут скаут\солдат/демо)

1) Шапки на скаута:

ВАЖНО. Так же можно принимать офферы или же офферить самому на хорошие шапки для снайпера\медика (Тут уже на ваш выбор, опять же не забываем про популярность шапки\эффекта)

Основные моменты : всегда проверяем историю шапки, всегда смотрим на популярность шапки на аутпосте (если таких же шапок 5+ в продаже, то брать ее не стоит), всегда обращаем внимание на цену этой же шапки у других людей, не рекомендую брать шапку если ее кто то квикселит.

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I have received a few messages in the past week about where to find the latest prices on certain items and/or how to trade your hats/items/etc. Most of these sites are well known, but for those who haven’t heard about them, this is for you.

Scrap.tf is a great site for quick access the basics. You can sell and/or buy keys, hats, earbuds, maxheads, bill’s hats, paint, description tags, +more at the convenience of an automated trading bot. Most items are sold at market price, and it’s easier since you don’t have to deal with adding a trader and waiting for them to come online.

You may also add a scrap bot, which allows you to put any random weapons (class specific doesn’t matter) and receive metal for it. Scrap bots also allow you to buy any weapon for a scrap, although different scrap bots hold different items. It’s a great site, check it out.

Backpack.tf is another great site, but specifically for pricing. The search bar at the top is an easy way to receive quick prices on all items and hats. It will also display the price of other qualities, such as Strange or Vintage. If you click on the Trading drop down menu, you will find the latest prices to TF2 Unusuals, as well as access to the most popular TF2 Trading sites like TF2Outpost.

TF2 Raffle is a great way to give back to the community (and also receive if you’re lucky!). Once you sign in, you can click on New Raffle, and raffle off anything in your backpack. People sometimes raffle off unusuals, so keep an eye for that!

For more information on unusual trading, that may go in a different thread. I’ve had a lot of experience with paypal transactions, scammers, how to find out if your unusual is duped, finding the fairest prices and many other tips for first time traders.

Hope this helps.

How does it work?

How will the seller deliver?

Option 1: In-game, Face to Face Delivery

Sellers will select this method of delivery if they intend to meet your character in-game with one of their own characters. Usually a seller will coordinate a time and location in-game to meet your character.

  • Be sure to confirm the time to account for time zone differences
  • Confirm which Shard or Server the delivery is to take place in case your game world has more than one.
  • Never, under any circumstances, return gold, item, etc. to the delivery character if ever asked. In the event the seller asks you to, please take A screenshot and report this to PlayerAuctions Customer Support.

Option 2: In-game Mailbox delivery.

Some sellers will select the option to deliver gold or items directly to an in-game mailbox. This option is less popular for larger Games like WoW, but is still viable amongst other games. This option can be convenient for smaller orders because you do not need to coordinate time of delivery.

Why should I buy on PlayerAuctions?

Low Prices: Prices set by other players or PowerSellers on PlayerAuctions are significantly lower than the high markups you would find on expensive retail sites.

Guaranteed Security: PlayerAuctions is quite simply the most secure place to buy and sell MMO game assets. Through PlayerGuardian, you are 100% guaranteed full and as-described delivery, or your money back.

Reliable Delivery Speed: PlayerAuctions calculates each seller’s average delivery speed from the seller’s latest successfully completed deliveries, which gives you a clear idea of how fast the seller will deliver your order.

After I send payment, when will the seller deliver?

To see how quickly the seller may deliver your order, refer to the seller’s delivery guarantee period, which is their promise to complete delivery within a certain timeframe after your payment is securely sent to PlayerAuctions and is successfully verified. Each seller sets their delivery guarantee period independent of PlayerAuctions. In the event that the seller is not able to complete the delivery within their guaranteed time, you may cancel the order without penalty for a hassle-free refund from PlayerAuctions.

What if the seller doesn’t deliver?

PlayerAuctions guarantees that the seller will deliver your order, or your money back. The overwhelming majority of transactions through our site occur successfully. As for the very exceptional cases, you can rest assured that they have been carefully considered by our systems and processes, and we are well prepared to handle them in the rare event that they do occur.

Team Fortress 2 differentiates itself from most FPS games in that it was one of the first to have an in-game item economy wherein gamers could trade items with each other. Long before CSGO skin trades were popular, TF2 trading sites dominated the FPS community landscape where people not only traded crates, boxes, and item skins for money, but also traded item for item. From Burning and Cloudy Moon trading cards, to the Top Notch Hat, which ranks as one of the rarest items in TF2. This game set up the foundational principles, which would lead to the huge success of CSGO.

Team Fortress 2: It’s evolution into a popular FPS with an item economy

Just like many other e-sports games today, Team Fortress 2 began as a mod of for Quake, a popular sci-fi-themed FPS game back in 1996. The mod features a Capture the Flag mode between two teams, and players who participate have to choose among nine diverse classes. Each class has its own weapon, armor, and special abilities. In addition to this, you are able to equip various TF2 skins of armor and weapons, but more importantly, some of these equippable items actually result in experience or propaganda gains.

Because of the unexpected success of this game mod, it went on to become a game in its own right, which feels like a mod based on the Half-Life engine. DOTA was birthed from a similar evolution of a game based map, which became popular. Released and developed by Valve in 1999, it retained the name Team Fortress (later on to be known as Team Fortress Classic) and the original gameplay of the mod, and it was then given a few extra features. First would be the additional modes, other than Capture the Flag, this was one way the game expanded from its original core. The game has VIP protection and Territorial Control modes, which have helped the game, garner considerable support and a positive reception.

Eight years later, following the success of Team Fortress Classic, Team Fortress 2 was released for the PC, Xbox360, and PS3. The game kept many elements that made its predecessors critically acclaimed and widely popular, and it featured new game modes. And just like its forerunners, it received many positive reviews and a wide player base. 8 Years have passed since the game was first released, it is still one of the most widely played first-person shooters with still a very robust trading community, and has one of the most active online communities, and rightfully so.

Keeping the Game Alive: TF2 cosmetics, hats, keys and other items

One of the key features that set Team Fortress 2 apart from its forerunners would be the addition of items, with several different classifications. Some of these are not just TF2 cosmetics. This gives players the incentive to play, as even though these items, save weapons, do not affect gameplay, they add a sense of prestige and achievement for the players. There are five kinds of TF2 items:

  • TF2 Cosmetics – items that modify a player’s appearance. They are equipped in the loud out screen. Vintage Buds are some of the rarest cosmetic items to date. TF2 Hats especially make up many of the rarest items, including these guys: J.Axer’s Dapper Topper, Amber’s Rad As All Hell Hat, and the Uncle Sam.
  • Tools – items that either yield other items or affect the appearance of other cosmetic items. There are four kinds of tools: crates, which yield cosmetic items; TF2 keys, which open special crate items; item customization tools, which alter the cosmetics of other items or effects of certain actions; and other tools that give other items, or give your account additional actions and privileges. Useful medic packs, are tool sets which are much sought after due to their rarity and can fetch upwards of $2,000.
  • Weapons – although all classes have a stock weapon, players can replace them with other weapons they receive in game. Some weapons only offer a look that is different from the stock, while others have different properties that affect gameplay.
  • Action Items – consumable items that are used in game create various effects, especially valuable are those that come during holiday events, or are presented rarely to specific character classes.
  • Taunts – items that modify a taunt, an animated action performed by a character by pressing the G button for PC, the Square button for PS3, and X for Xbox360.

Players gain items whenever they get an achievement, crafting, or at random, as the game gives out random items within a fixed period of time.

PlayerAuctions: Your Ultimate TF2 Trading Market

While players appreciate the fact that they receive an item during regular intervals, they don’t always receive their item of choice. This is typical to any player driven economy game dynamics to get around this problem, players resort to TF2 trading, exchanging the items they don’t want or need with other players so they can get their item of choice or make a quick few bucks. In fact, trading is such a popular practice that according to Kotaku, the game’s trading economy is worth $50 million. Considering that staggering amount, it’s obvious that many players make a lot of money selling TF2 items. So if you have a lot of unwanted and unnecessary items in your inventory and you want to make money, it’s a great idea to sell them off for real-life currency.

You can sell them to your friends who play Team Fortress 2. But in case you don’t have any, the best you can do is go into the online market. But beware, as there is many scam sites that seem legit. The scamming has become so rampant with STEAM game trades, that this lead to a particular community group where traders could opt to share scammer information, and verify their identities. Unfortunately however, it did not prove to be enough to stop scams from taking place.

Трейдер tf2

Все игроки в TF2 знают про существование торговли, и практически все ею пользовались. Но мало кто знает, как торговать правильно. Этому и посвящён этот небольшой гайд, цель которого — рассказать вам то, что другие не хотят (лишь потому что считают это «очевидным»).

Правило первое. Не нервируйте других игроков.

Взаимоуважение — это то, что должно связывать продавца и покупателя. Если вы хотите продать какой-либо предмет, лучше всего выбирать Trade-сервера (их легко узнать по префиксу «trade» в начале названия карты) или сервера с Trade-чатом, который другие игроки при желании смогут просто отключить. А если такой функции на сервере нет, то не стоит отправлять 10 сообщений за 15 секунд. Пишите о своём предложении раз в две-три минуты, а если в течение десяти — пятнадцати минут никто не отзывается — переходите на другой сервер.

Не раз и не два ваш покорный слуга сталкивался с фразой «Да никто у тебя за такую цену не купит». Тут есть лишь два варианта. Первый — если вы продаёте никому не нужный предмет за востребованный, например, «Продам рыбу за две шапки!» В таком случае действительно стоит либо понизить цену, либо повысить предложение. Второй же вариант — вполне себе нормальная сделка, «Продам Старинную Пикельхаубе за две шапки!» Тут стоит помнить лишь одно: если товар действительно нужен покупателю, он его купит.

Правило второе. Будьте вежливы.

Это правило не несёт в себе ничего, кроме соблюдения элементарных норм поведения уже в самом окне торговли: уважай собеседника, поздоровайся с ним, если, конечно, вы не договорились о сделке в чате игровом. Общайся так, как бы общался с хорошим знакомым, и возможно, сможешь получить больше, чем мог бы.

Правило третье. Не продавайте себе в убыток.

Итак, вы видите в чате, что игрок покупает то, что у вас есть и вы готовы продать. Предлагайте ему обмен и спрашивайте, что он может отдать за этот предмет. Если он даёт вам, например, два старинных (ну или винтажных, кому как нравится) оружия за одно новое, то соглашайтесь. Если же он предлагает вам столько же, насколько ценится этот предмет — требуйте больше, не стесняйтесь. Как я уже говорил, если человеку что-то нужно, он это купит. При разумных расценках, конечно.

Правило четвёртое. Если вам что-то нужно — покупайте.

Представим ситуацию: вам срочно нужен какой-то предмет, к примеру, Крицкриг. Пишите сообщение в чате и ждите предложений. Например, у вас просят два-три других оружия. Соглашайтесь. Если вам этот самый Крицкриг так нужен, не будьте жадным, то покупайте. Может статься так, что больше предложений не будет.

Правило пятое. Правильно составляйте сообщение.

Итак, вам нужно продать какой-нибудь предмет. Кроме первого правила, стоит помнить, что составлять сообщение нужно правильно. Не стоит писать всё БОЛЬШИМИ БУКВАМИ или составлять просьбу, изобилующую знаками препинания. Также, заметьте, совсем ни к чему ставить «скобачки», смайлики))) Это просто сухая процедура обмена вещами, вспомните. Эмоции тут ни при чём.

Знаю, что некоторым этот гайд ничего полезного так и не принёс. Но в таком случае лучше вам просто промолчать.

Гайд написан мной, SlasHDriveR’ом. Удачной торговли и побольше вам шапок на рыло 😉

Community trading tips

Community trading tips is a collection of advice for users who are new to trading Team Fortress 2 items within the Steam Trading system.

Contents

Item Value

In general, the value of items is defined by their rarity, that is, the difficulty and/or expense in acquiring them by a player. By extension, item rarity is usually tied to an item’s Quality. Hence, Unique weapons, the most usual drops in the game, generally have the lowest value of all items, due to them being the most usual drops, as well as being craftable. Some may be slightly more valuable if they have a desired item level (such as 42, 69, or 100) or crafting number (such as numbers 1 to 100). Mann Co. Supply Crates are also common drops and as such also considered of low value, often below that of Unique weapons. Vintage items are considered more expensive, due to their originally higher crafting value, and their general unavailability at present. Strange items have a higher value than Unique items since they can only be obtained from Supply Crates, but their price varies wildly depending on each item’s specific probability of being obtained from a Crate, their popularity and the availability of the crate they can be obtained from. Genuine item values are often higher than the aforementioned, due to the related expense of obtaining them as promotional items, and the limited time-frame to obtain them this way.

Haunted items are also considered to have a higher value, due to their dropping window being limited to Halloween events and maps. Festive weapons have a similar seasonal limitation, but are considered to be of a much higher value, due to the strict time-frame allowed for obtaining them from special Christmas Event crates, their relative probability of being obtained from crates, and their cosmetic decorations and popularity. Festive weapons of a Strange quality have an even higher value due to their even lower probability of being obtained. Festivized weapons, though, differ from Festive weapons due to the fact they are acquired by applying a Festivizer on a weapon. Therefore, people generally value Festive weapons over Festivized weapons as Festive weapons are considered the «original» Festive weapons.

Some items like the Mann Co. Supply Crate Key take a concept called Supply and Demand into account when determining its value.

Items of any quality are generally considered to be «dirty» when they contain additional descriptive text («Gifted by ___», etc.), have had a Name Tag or Description Tag used on them or when they have certain trading limitations, such as needing gift-wrap or being uncraftable. Dirty items are considered to be of lesser value than «clean» items devoid of any of these attributes.

Items with attributes added by tools, such as color from Paint Cans or Strange Parts, usually have a fraction of the value of such items added to the total value of the item up for trade.

Currency

Metal is often used as a trading currency by traders, and is traded for items according to their value in metal. The value of specific items is usually given in terms of Refined Metal, or «ref» (e.g. 1.33 ref, 3 ref, etc.). To know how much metal is being asked for an item, the specific values for each type of metal are as given as: 1 Scrap = 0.11 ref, 1 Reclaimed Metal (or rec) = 0.33 ref, 1 Refined Metal = 1 ref. Since a scrap is produced from 2 weapons, a single Unique weapon is sometimes considered as equivalent to 0.05 ref. However, it is usual to see individual Unique weapons sold for a scrap each, by players trying to make profit out of trades.

For items with higher value, higher-level «currencies» are used. Keys are used as the next tier of currency, although their equivalent in metal is often accepted as a substitute when trading. Earbuds, or «Buds» used to be a popular form of currency considered in very high value, however popular trading site Backpack.tf had made an announcement on March 31st, 2015 stating that buds would no longer be considered currency in tf2.

Occasionally, Traders will compensate a lack of refined metal or key with cosmetic items. This is known as overpay. It is a less efficient way of trading that very few people do. Trading cosmetic for cosmetic is usually a bit easier if you have a close friend on steam who would like the hat(s) you are trading.

Australium weapons

Australium weapons are only obtainable in the PvE game mode Mann vs. Machine with a Tour of Duty Ticket. These weapons appear to be coated with a gold-like substance, Australium. They are obtained only as strange weapons to count kills. The probability of getting an item like this from Mann vs. Machine is normally 3% — 4%. They are considered a valuable and expensive type of items for trade right next to Unusual Items. For the list of available Australium weapons, see the main article.

The Golden Wrench, Saxxy, and Golden Frying Pan are exceptionally rare Australium-colored weapons different from the Australium weapons above. The Golden Wrench and Saxxy are untradable. The Golden Frying Pan is a particularly rare drop in Mann Up mode, obtainable only in a 0.025% [citation needed] chance for completing the Operation Two Cities Tour of Duty in Mann Up mode, taking about four advanced MvM missions to complete.

Unusual items

Unusual items are cons >[1] , making them extremely hard to come by, and making their base trading price extremely high. However, within its own realm of Unusual prices, the value of an Unusual item may vary wildly according to visual or thematic appeal, rarity, and general desirability.

Trading Tips

Keep the following tips in mind while trading:

  • To know how much metal is being asked for an item, keep in mind the specific values for each type of metal: 1 Scrap Metal is 0.11 refined (or simply scrap), 1 Reclaimed Metal (or rec) is 0.33 ref and 1 Refined Metal is 1 ref. Adding these values by increments will give you the exact value of metal that a trader is asking for, and lets you know which and how many items of metal are being asked of you.
  • Check the person’s Steam profile to see if the person is on trade probation by Valve, or has a reputation for being a scammer. Also use SteamRep.
  • Use a trusted SteamRep m >Types of Trading

There are several different types of trading:

  • Scrap banking — an act where a player charges metal for weapons. Scrap bankers will usually exchange one scrap for two weapons initially, and then charge one scrap for one weapon after banking them, gaining them a small profit. This can also be performed the other way around, by trading two weapons to a scrap banker. This is referred to as reverse scrap banking.
  • Weapon banking — an act where a player gives another player a weapon for another weapon.
  • Cosmetic banking — an act where a player purchases Cosmetic for 1.33 refined (the general price for the majority of craftable cosmetics) or lower, then sells them for 1.33 refined or more, gaining the player a profit.
  • Key Banking — an act where a player exchanges their Mann Co. Supply Crate Keys for metal, mainly refined metal.
  • 1:1 trading — an act where a player exchanges a single item with another player for another item.
  • Item overpay — Overpaying for an item by .11 (1 scrap) to 1 key in items compared to the required amount for the other player’s item(s)
  • Game trading — involves exchanging items for games and vice versa.
  • Cash trading — involves exchanging items for monetary compensation outside of the Steam trade. This form of trading should always be done with a trusted middleman, if done at all; this practice is very risky, and is not supported by Valve.
  • Pure trading — when a person pays the pure value for a specified item, generally in Refined or Keys.
  • Quicksell trading — when a person sells an item (often with the Unusual quality) for pure currency for a value that is less than the suggested price of their item.
  • Bot trading — when a player goes to a website that have steam accounts that collect items in order to trade them to real players, these websites often have the same banking as said previously, for example weapons can have: buy weapons, sell weapons, auto sell (sells all duplicate weapons for scrap), auto buy (buys all weapons it registers that you don’t have), the trade sites often require you to have your inventory open so it can see your weapons and other items. Some bot sites still require a lot of work to make perfect, so if you use a bot site, always look on the trade one more time. An example on a bot site is scrap.tf.

Things that should be watched out for:

  • Scamming — the act of stealing from another person, generally when a player promises another player items that they will never give.
  • Phishing/Hijacking — when a user pretending to be a trader sends a phishing link (which redirects the player to a fake site that harvests their login details or other information), or asks for a player’s password. Players should always check the name of the link they are clicking and check for a green bar at the top of their browser signifying security. They should never share their password with anyone.
  • Sharking — the act of targeting a player (usually new or inexperienced players/traders) and offering items that are worth a significant amount less than the targeted player’s item(s) while telling them that they are worth the same amount.

Before the Trade

  • Ascertain the value of the items you want to trade. Always try to figure out what your items are worth before trading them. [2] .
  • Check if the person you are trading with is a legitimate trader and is who they say they are. [3] Check the person’s Steam profile yourself (do not click any links) and/or their SteamRep page. Their SteamRep profile will also display if the person has a Valve trade ban or Valve trade probation. [4] (For other ways to verify, see Reputation below.)
  • Do NOT click on any links to external websites as these sites could be malicious and/or phishing sites. [5]
  • If cash trades are involved, make sure that you secure a verified community m >[6]
  • Do NOT use TeamViewer or any other software that the other user tells you to install or use. [7]
  • Do NOT believe anyone who says that they are from Steam Support. Steam Support will NEVER ask you to trade items to them for any reason. [8]
  • Steam Wallet Funds can not be traded. Any trades offers that state that Steam Wallet Funds will be added after the trade are scams.

During the Trade

  • Click on the name of the other person while in the trade window to verify that is the real person and not an impersonator. [9]
  • Do NOT click on any links the person sends you in the trade chat window or run any programs the person asks you to run while in the trade. [10]
  • Pay close attention to the trade. Check the trade chat to ensure that no items were removed. Make certain all agreed items are visible in the window before accepting the trade. If you cannot see an item, cancel the trade. [11]
  • Pay attention to the quality of the items being offered. Take your time to verify all items by hovering over them to ensure it is exactly the item you agreed to get. [12]
  • Be aware of renamed items, as a scammer can rename a common item to appear as a rare item. Double-check the quality, names, and descriptions of all items. Items which are renamed or have had their description changed will have quotation marks (“) around the name and description. The chat box will also show notifications about renamed items to help avo >[13] Be sure to preview items by hovering over them in the inventory or trading boxes to make sure you are adding the correct one(s).
  • Check if the items you receive in the trade are craftable. After the October 13, 2011 patch, weapons bought from the store are uncraftable, but can be traded. After the November 29, 2012 patch, cosmetic items bought from the store are craftable.
  • Common courtesy is important. Always treat other players with respect. [14]
  • Do NOT rush the trade. Give yourself plenty of time to review and verify all items before completing the trade- especially after the green box is checked but before the final trade button is pressed. [15]
  • You should always have a bit of control over the trade. You should never be pressured to sell your item at an discounted price. If you ever feel uncomfortable, do not hesitate to cancel the trade.
  • Never be afra >What NOT to Trade
    • Do NOT trade for CD keys or games that cannot be traded through the trading window. [16]
    • Do NOT trade Steam accounts. The buying, selling, sharing, or trading of Steam accounts violates the Steam Subscriber Agreement. [17]
    • Do NOT trade for items in other platforms, such as for Runescape gold, Minecraft accounts, etc. [18]

    Reputation

    Reputation is often used in the trading community especially in the realm of cash trading. Red Flags:

    • New account (if the account that the person is on is relatively new, they could be using an alternate account)
    • Low TF2 hours (if the person has only 100 or so hours in TF2, but they want to trade for a high value item, it could be a fishy situation)
    • Low amount of games in their library, or only free to play games. People who have no attachment to their accounts (alternatives) often have almost no games in their account, or only free to play games. (This way if they lose their account they don’t lose any games)

    Trade Scamming

    Scammers are users that attempt to steal other people’s items by deceptive means. They do this in three different ways:

    • Convincing the victim to trade them items while receiving nothing in return
    • Misleading the victim on how valuable certain items are, and knowingly offering an unfair trade(this is called sharking)
    • Convincing the victim to click on a corrupted link, which allows the scammer to hijack the victim’s account and/or trade offers sent to other people.

    Thus, as long as you never give items to strangers for free, never click on suspicious links, and always know the true value of both your items and theirs, you have nothing to fear from scammers.

    There are many different scamming strategies. All known methods are listed down below:

    Quickswitching scam

    This method is extremely ineffective now with the trade hold and additional verification. Once both parties have agreed upon a fair trade and they are happy, the scammer instead offers a similar item of less value, and hopes that the victim won’t notice the difference. Fortunately, this method is much harder to pull off now because extra verification is needed before the trade can be completed giving the victim an extra chance to notice.

    Fake bot scam

    This is a type of impersonation scam. Fake bots are accounts that send you offers for items in exchange for nothing, usually to ‘deposit’ them into a site, which after being deposited, cannot be withdrawn. The Scam usually goes like this:

    • A Scammer adds a user to their friend list
    • they lead the user to a well-known trading site (e.g., Opskins, Marketplace.tf, etc.) (or they can lead you to a fake trading site made just for scamming)
    • they get the user to list their item but not deposit it
    • a fake bot sends the user an offer for your item for nothing in return
    • the scammer tries to convince the user to accept the trade
    • once the user accepts, the scammer blocks the user and the deposited items cannot be withdrawn.

    Fake middleman scam

    This is another type of impersonation scam. Some traders use middlemen to be a mediator when trading highly valuable items to make sure the items go to the right people and prevent most types of scams. However, middlemen can be impersonated and take the valuable items without giving it to the respective users. A lot of the time the fake middleman will be working with/be an alt account of a scammer to take your items. It will usually go down like this:

    • You have a valuable item that you wish to trade.
    • You meet with someone who is willing to trade and they insist on getting a middleman.
    • The middleman and the person you are trading with are friends or the middleman is an alt of the scammer.
    • The middleman takes all the items and gives it to the scammer.

    or it can go down like this:

      You are trading valuable items and you want to get a m >Phishing link scam

    Phishing links are links to websites usually impersonating Steam or other well-known websites and require you to sign in to steal your account credentials, and hijack your account. In some occasions simply accessing the website may download malware and do harm to your computer and potentially steal your personal information.

    Examining and not clicking on suspicious links will prevent you from getting affected by this type of scam.

    Trusted friend scam

    This is another type of impersonation scam. The scammer will ask you to trade your items to a trusted friend of yours who the scammer will impersonate to decieve you to trade the items to the fake account. It usually goes like this:

    • The scammer adds the victim.
    • The scammer and the victim agree on a deal for a trade.
    • The scammer says to make sure the promised items are ‘legit’ that the user has to temporarily trade it to a friend they trust, then they can complete the trade.
    • The scammer’s alt/friend impersonates the friend you sa >Fake YouTuber/streamer scam

    This is another type of impersonation scam. An account impersonating a popular YouTuber/streamer will add you, and tell you that they need your items for a showcase video. Once you have given your items to them, they block you. Checking the YouTuber/streamer’s actual Steam profile can help you identify if it’s a scammer, as the «Add Friend» button should change to «Send Message» if you are already their friend. Also checking the scammer’s inventory to see if it is private can help.

    Hacked crate scam

    In this particular scam, a scammer adds a user to their friend list, they tell the user that their crates in their inventory are hacked and that they will 100% unbox a Unusual when opened. The user pays the scammer for the crates unboxes them and gets nothing (although there is the normal small chance they could get an expensive item) and realizes that the scammer was lying when he said the crates were hacked and that they were just normal crates.

    Sharking

    Sharking is a type of scam in which the scammer tells the victim that the scammer’s item is worth far more than it actually is, or that the victim’s item is worth far less than it actually is. This is largely preventable through referencing websites like backpack.tf, or by checking the Steam Community Market prices if the items are marketable, as these give community-decided values of the items in question.

    Fake Valve employee

    This is another type of impersonation scam. The scammer will impersonate a Valve employee (e.g. Robin Walker, Drunken F00l), and will proceed to ask you to trade your items to them for various reasons. Note that Valve employees will never contact you personally for your items, even if they are glitched.

    Festive/Festivized

    This scam is more recent than others, as in the Smissmas 2020 Update Valve updated Festivizers to be able to Festivize more weapons than previously (including Stock weapons). The scammer sends you a trade offer proclaiming the item to be an original Festive weapon or Strange Festive, thus upping the item’s worth. (Example: you have a 12 Key item, you list it for that price, you get an offer for a Strange «Festive» Scattergun, when you hover over the item it shows as Festivized.) Note that original Festive weapons have a different backpack icon than Festivized weapons, use this to distinguish whether it is a Original Festive or a Festivized one.

    Item roulette scam

    This scam involves a TF2 gambling website that the scammer supposedly runs. Some of these websites fake the entire process. [19] Typically, a scammer adds a TF2 player over steam to their friends list. If the TF2 player accepts, the scammer asks the player to advertise their item roulette website and promises to «fix» (guarantee the TF2 player to win a round) some roulette rounds in exchange for their help. Alternatively, a scammer may «fix» a round so that a select roulette player (which sometimes may be a fake player/bot) of the would-be victim’s choosing is guaranteed to win as proof to the would-be victim that the scammer is in fact capable of «fixing» rounds. Items can be scammed from a would-be victim in three ways:

    • Sometimes a «fee» is required to play the roulette game in the first place.
    • By entering the game, a would-be victim’s items are simply pocketed by the scammers involved and are never actually given to a «winner» (sometimes fake players or bots pretend to be a would-be winner).
    • Even if the roulette round is legitimate, rounds can be «fixed» and unfairly manipulated to guarantee a winner (which is often done to lure in new would-be victims).

    In addition, this scam can easily become widespread due to scammers requiring victims to advertise these roulette or gambling sites in order to attract new would-be victims.

    Another game/Abstractism scam

    This is a newer scam, Abstractism was a game that used Team Fortress 2 backpack icons for inventory items until it was removed from the Steam Store on 7/30/18 «for shipping unauthorized code, trolling with content, and scamming customers with deceptive in-game items» [20] . Scammers will «fake» that they have really expensive items (Australiums, Unusuals), sometimes there is no way to easily tell the fake items apart from the real items [21] , however some fake items don’t have the Team Fortress 2 logo next to it, use this to help distinguish fake items from another game. Valve has taken precautions in an effort to ensure that such scams do not reoccur in the future by adding warnings in trade windows for items which were recently added to the Steam store and for trading with items which a trading participant has never played the associated game for. These warnings can also be used to distinguish fake items from real ones.

    Item Value

    In general, the value of items is defined by their rarity, that is, the difficulty and/or expense in acquiring them by a player. By extension, item rarity is usually tied to an item’s Quality. Hence, Unique weapons, the most usual drops in the game, generally have the lowest value of all items, due to them being the most usual drops, as well as being craftable. Some may be slightly more valuable if they have a desired item level (such as 42, 69, or 100) or crafting number (such as numbers 1 to 100). Mann Co. Supply Crates are also common drops and as such also considered of low value, often below that of Unique weapons. Vintage items are considered more expensive, due to their originally higher crafting value, and their general unavailability at present. Strange items have a higher value than Unique items since they can only be obtained from Supply Crates, but their price varies wildly depending on each item’s specific probability of being obtained from a Crate, their popularity and the availability of the crate they can be obtained from. Genuine item values are often higher than the aforementioned, due to the related expense of obtaining them as promotional items, and the limited time-frame to obtain them this way.

    Haunted items are also considered to have a higher value, due to their dropping window being limited to Halloween events and maps. Festive weapons have a similar seasonal limitation, but are considered to be of a much higher value, due to the strict time-frame allowed for obtaining them from special Christmas Event crates, their relative probability of being obtained from crates, and their cosmetic decorations and popularity. Festive weapons of a Strange quality have an even higher value due to their even lower probability of being obtained. Festivized weapons, though, differ from Festive weapons due to the fact they are acquired by applying a Festivizer on a weapon. Therefore, people generally value Festive weapons over Festivized weapons as Festive weapons are considered the «original» Festive weapons.

    Some items like the Mann Co. Supply Crate Key take a concept called Supply and Demand into account when determining its value.

    Items of any quality are generally considered to be «dirty» when they contain additional descriptive text («Gifted by ___», etc.), have had a Name Tag or Description Tag used on them or when they have certain trading limitations, such as needing gift-wrap or being uncraftable. Dirty items are considered to be of lesser value than «clean» items devoid of any of these attributes.

    Items with attributes added by tools, such as color from Paint Cans or Strange Parts, usually have a fraction of the value of such items added to the total value of the item up for trade.

    Currency

    Metal is often used as a trading currency by traders, and is traded for items according to their value in metal. The value of specific items is usually given in terms of Refined Metal, or «ref» (e.g. 1.33 ref, 3 ref, etc.). To know how much metal is being asked for an item, the specific values for each type of metal are as given as: 1 Scrap = 0.11 ref, 1 Reclaimed Metal (or rec) = 0.33 ref, 1 Refined Metal = 1 ref. Since a scrap is produced from 2 weapons, a single Unique weapon is sometimes considered as equivalent to 0.05 ref. However, it is usual to see individual Unique weapons sold for a scrap each, by players trying to make profit out of trades.

    For items with higher value, higher-level «currencies» are used. Keys are used as the next tier of currency, although their equivalent in metal is often accepted as a substitute when trading. Earbuds, or «Buds» used to be a popular form of currency considered in very high value, however popular trading site Backpack.tf had made an announcement on March 31st, 2015 stating that buds would no longer be considered currency in tf2.

    Occasionally, Traders will compensate a lack of refined metal or key with cosmetic items. This is known as overpay. It is a less efficient way of trading that very few people do. Trading cosmetic for cosmetic is usually a bit easier if you have a close friend on steam who would like the hat(s) you are trading.

    Australium weapons

    Australium weapons are only obtainable in the PvE game mode Mann vs. Machine with a Tour of Duty Ticket. These weapons appear to be coated with a gold-like substance, Australium. They are obtained only as strange weapons to count kills. The probability of getting an item like this from Mann vs. Machine is normally 3% — 4%. They are considered a valuable and expensive type of items for trade right next to Unusual Items. For the list of available Australium weapons, see the main article.

    The Golden Wrench, Saxxy, and Golden Frying Pan are exceptionally rare Australium-colored weapons different from the Australium weapons above. The Golden Wrench and Saxxy are untradable. The Golden Frying Pan is a particularly rare drop in Mann Up mode, obtainable only in a 0.025% [citation needed] chance for completing the Operation Two Cities Tour of Duty in Mann Up mode, taking about four advanced MvM missions to complete.

    Unusual items

    Unusual items are cons >[1] , making them extremely hard to come by, and making their base trading price extremely high. However, within its own realm of Unusual prices, the value of an Unusual item may vary wildly according to visual or thematic appeal, rarity, and general desirability.

    Trading Tips

    Keep the following tips in mind while trading:

    • To know how much metal is being asked for an item, keep in mind the specific values for each type of metal: 1 Scrap Metal is 0.11 refined (or simply scrap), 1 Reclaimed Metal (or rec) is 0.33 ref and 1 Refined Metal is 1 ref. Adding these values by increments will give you the exact value of metal that a trader is asking for, and lets you know which and how many items of metal are being asked of you.
    • Check the person’s Steam profile to see if the person is on trade probation by Valve, or has a reputation for being a scammer. Also use SteamRep.
    • Use a trusted SteamRep m >Types of Trading

    There are several different types of trading:

    • Scrap banking — an act where a player charges metal for weapons. Scrap bankers will usually exchange one scrap for two weapons initially, and then charge one scrap for one weapon after banking them, gaining them a small profit. This can also be performed the other way around, by trading two weapons to a scrap banker. This is referred to as reverse scrap banking.
    • Weapon banking — an act where a player gives another player a weapon for another weapon.
    • Cosmetic banking — an act where a player purchases Cosmetic for 1.33 refined (the general price for the majority of craftable cosmetics) or lower, then sells them for 1.33 refined or more, gaining the player a profit.
    • Key Banking — an act where a player exchanges their Mann Co. Supply Crate Keys for metal, mainly refined metal.
    • 1:1 trading — an act where a player exchanges a single item with another player for another item.
    • Item overpay — Overpaying for an item by .11 (1 scrap) to 1 key in items compared to the required amount for the other player’s item(s)
    • Game trading — involves exchanging items for games and vice versa.
    • Cash trading — involves exchanging items for monetary compensation outside of the Steam trade. This form of trading should always be done with a trusted middleman, if done at all; this practice is very risky, and is not supported by Valve.
    • Pure trading — when a person pays the pure value for a specified item, generally in Refined or Keys.
    • Quicksell trading — when a person sells an item (often with the Unusual quality) for pure currency for a value that is less than the suggested price of their item.
    • Bot trading — when a player goes to a website that have steam accounts that collect items in order to trade them to real players, these websites often have the same banking as said previously, for example weapons can have: buy weapons, sell weapons, auto sell (sells all duplicate weapons for scrap), auto buy (buys all weapons it registers that you don’t have), the trade sites often require you to have your inventory open so it can see your weapons and other items. Some bot sites still require a lot of work to make perfect, so if you use a bot site, always look on the trade one more time. An example on a bot site is scrap.tf.

    Things that should be watched out for:

    • Scamming — the act of stealing from another person, generally when a player promises another player items that they will never give.
    • Phishing/Hijacking — when a user pretending to be a trader sends a phishing link (which redirects the player to a fake site that harvests their login details or other information), or asks for a player’s password. Players should always check the name of the link they are clicking and check for a green bar at the top of their browser signifying security. They should never share their password with anyone.
    • Sharking — the act of targeting a player (usually new or inexperienced players/traders) and offering items that are worth a significant amount less than the targeted player’s item(s) while telling them that they are worth the same amount.

    Before the Trade

    • Ascertain the value of the items you want to trade. Always try to figure out what your items are worth before trading them. [2] .
    • Check if the person you are trading with is a legitimate trader and is who they say they are. [3] Check the person’s Steam profile yourself (do not click any links) and/or their SteamRep page. Their SteamRep profile will also display if the person has a Valve trade ban or Valve trade probation. [4] (For other ways to verify, see Reputation below.)
    • Do NOT click on any links to external websites as these sites could be malicious and/or phishing sites. [5]
    • If cash trades are involved, make sure that you secure a verified community m >[6]
    • Do NOT use TeamViewer or any other software that the other user tells you to install or use. [7]
    • Do NOT believe anyone who says that they are from Steam Support. Steam Support will NEVER ask you to trade items to them for any reason. [8]
    • Steam Wallet Funds can not be traded. Any trades offers that state that Steam Wallet Funds will be added after the trade are scams.

    During the Trade

    • Click on the name of the other person while in the trade window to verify that is the real person and not an impersonator. [9]
    • Do NOT click on any links the person sends you in the trade chat window or run any programs the person asks you to run while in the trade. [10]
    • Pay close attention to the trade. Check the trade chat to ensure that no items were removed. Make certain all agreed items are visible in the window before accepting the trade. If you cannot see an item, cancel the trade. [11]
    • Pay attention to the quality of the items being offered. Take your time to verify all items by hovering over them to ensure it is exactly the item you agreed to get. [12]
    • Be aware of renamed items, as a scammer can rename a common item to appear as a rare item. Double-check the quality, names, and descriptions of all items. Items which are renamed or have had their description changed will have quotation marks (“) around the name and description. The chat box will also show notifications about renamed items to help avo >[13] Be sure to preview items by hovering over them in the inventory or trading boxes to make sure you are adding the correct one(s).
    • Check if the items you receive in the trade are craftable. After the October 13, 2011 patch, weapons bought from the store are uncraftable, but can be traded. After the November 29, 2012 patch, cosmetic items bought from the store are craftable.
    • Common courtesy is important. Always treat other players with respect. [14]
    • Do NOT rush the trade. Give yourself plenty of time to review and verify all items before completing the trade- especially after the green box is checked but before the final trade button is pressed. [15]
    • You should always have a bit of control over the trade. You should never be pressured to sell your item at an discounted price. If you ever feel uncomfortable, do not hesitate to cancel the trade.
    • Never be afra >What NOT to Trade
      • Do NOT trade for CD keys or games that cannot be traded through the trading window. [16]
      • Do NOT trade Steam accounts. The buying, selling, sharing, or trading of Steam accounts violates the Steam Subscriber Agreement. [17]
      • Do NOT trade for items in other platforms, such as for Runescape gold, Minecraft accounts, etc. [18]

      Reputation

      Reputation is often used in the trading community especially in the realm of cash trading. Red Flags:

      • New account (if the account that the person is on is relatively new, they could be using an alternate account)
      • Low TF2 hours (if the person has only 100 or so hours in TF2, but they want to trade for a high value item, it could be a fishy situation)
      • Low amount of games in their library, or only free to play games. People who have no attachment to their accounts (alternatives) often have almost no games in their account, or only free to play games. (This way if they lose their account they don’t lose any games)

      Trade Scamming

      Scammers are users that attempt to steal other people’s items by deceptive means. They do this in three different ways:

      • Convincing the victim to trade them items while receiving nothing in return
      • Misleading the victim on how valuable certain items are, and knowingly offering an unfair trade(this is called sharking)
      • Convincing the victim to click on a corrupted link, which allows the scammer to hijack the victim’s account and/or trade offers sent to other people.

      Thus, as long as you never give items to strangers for free, never click on suspicious links, and always know the true value of both your items and theirs, you have nothing to fear from scammers.

      There are many different scamming strategies. All known methods are listed down below:

      Quickswitching scam

      This method is extremely ineffective now with the trade hold and additional verification. Once both parties have agreed upon a fair trade and they are happy, the scammer instead offers a similar item of less value, and hopes that the victim won’t notice the difference. Fortunately, this method is much harder to pull off now because extra verification is needed before the trade can be completed giving the victim an extra chance to notice.

      Fake bot scam

      This is a type of impersonation scam. Fake bots are accounts that send you offers for items in exchange for nothing, usually to ‘deposit’ them into a site, which after being deposited, cannot be withdrawn. The Scam usually goes like this:

      • A Scammer adds a user to their friend list
      • they lead the user to a well-known trading site (e.g., Opskins, Marketplace.tf, etc.) (or they can lead you to a fake trading site made just for scamming)
      • they get the user to list their item but not deposit it
      • a fake bot sends the user an offer for your item for nothing in return
      • the scammer tries to convince the user to accept the trade
      • once the user accepts, the scammer blocks the user and the deposited items cannot be withdrawn.

      Fake middleman scam

      This is another type of impersonation scam. Some traders use middlemen to be a mediator when trading highly valuable items to make sure the items go to the right people and prevent most types of scams. However, middlemen can be impersonated and take the valuable items without giving it to the respective users. A lot of the time the fake middleman will be working with/be an alt account of a scammer to take your items. It will usually go down like this:

      • You have a valuable item that you wish to trade.
      • You meet with someone who is willing to trade and they insist on getting a middleman.
      • The middleman and the person you are trading with are friends or the middleman is an alt of the scammer.
      • The middleman takes all the items and gives it to the scammer.

      or it can go down like this:

        You are trading valuable items and you want to get a m >Phishing link scam

      Phishing links are links to websites usually impersonating Steam or other well-known websites and require you to sign in to steal your account credentials, and hijack your account. In some occasions simply accessing the website may download malware and do harm to your computer and potentially steal your personal information.

      Examining and not clicking on suspicious links will prevent you from getting affected by this type of scam.

      Trusted friend scam

      This is another type of impersonation scam. The scammer will ask you to trade your items to a trusted friend of yours who the scammer will impersonate to decieve you to trade the items to the fake account. It usually goes like this:

      • The scammer adds the victim.
      • The scammer and the victim agree on a deal for a trade.
      • The scammer says to make sure the promised items are ‘legit’ that the user has to temporarily trade it to a friend they trust, then they can complete the trade.
      • The scammer’s alt/friend impersonates the friend you sa >Fake YouTuber/streamer scam

      This is another type of impersonation scam. An account impersonating a popular YouTuber/streamer will add you, and tell you that they need your items for a showcase video. Once you have given your items to them, they block you. Checking the YouTuber/streamer’s actual Steam profile can help you identify if it’s a scammer, as the «Add Friend» button should change to «Send Message» if you are already their friend. Also checking the scammer’s inventory to see if it is private can help.

      Hacked crate scam

      In this particular scam, a scammer adds a user to their friend list, they tell the user that their crates in their inventory are hacked and that they will 100% unbox a Unusual when opened. The user pays the scammer for the crates unboxes them and gets nothing (although there is the normal small chance they could get an expensive item) and realizes that the scammer was lying when he said the crates were hacked and that they were just normal crates.

      Sharking

      Sharking is a type of scam in which the scammer tells the victim that the scammer’s item is worth far more than it actually is, or that the victim’s item is worth far less than it actually is. This is largely preventable through referencing websites like backpack.tf, or by checking the Steam Community Market prices if the items are marketable, as these give community-decided values of the items in question.

      Fake Valve employee

      This is another type of impersonation scam. The scammer will impersonate a Valve employee (e.g. Robin Walker, Drunken F00l), and will proceed to ask you to trade your items to them for various reasons. Note that Valve employees will never contact you personally for your items, even if they are glitched.

      Festive/Festivized

      This scam is more recent than others, as in the Smissmas 2020 Update Valve updated Festivizers to be able to Festivize more weapons than previously (including Stock weapons). The scammer sends you a trade offer proclaiming the item to be an original Festive weapon or Strange Festive, thus upping the item’s worth. (Example: you have a 12 Key item, you list it for that price, you get an offer for a Strange «Festive» Scattergun, when you hover over the item it shows as Festivized.) Note that original Festive weapons have a different backpack icon than Festivized weapons, use this to distinguish whether it is a Original Festive or a Festivized one.

      Item roulette scam

      This scam involves a TF2 gambling website that the scammer supposedly runs. Some of these websites fake the entire process. [19] Typically, a scammer adds a TF2 player over steam to their friends list. If the TF2 player accepts, the scammer asks the player to advertise their item roulette website and promises to «fix» (guarantee the TF2 player to win a round) some roulette rounds in exchange for their help. Alternatively, a scammer may «fix» a round so that a select roulette player (which sometimes may be a fake player/bot) of the would-be victim’s choosing is guaranteed to win as proof to the would-be victim that the scammer is in fact capable of «fixing» rounds. Items can be scammed from a would-be victim in three ways:

      • Sometimes a «fee» is required to play the roulette game in the first place.
      • By entering the game, a would-be victim’s items are simply pocketed by the scammers involved and are never actually given to a «winner» (sometimes fake players or bots pretend to be a would-be winner).
      • Even if the roulette round is legitimate, rounds can be «fixed» and unfairly manipulated to guarantee a winner (which is often done to lure in new would-be victims).

      In addition, this scam can easily become widespread due to scammers requiring victims to advertise these roulette or gambling sites in order to attract new would-be victims.

      Another game/Abstractism scam

      This is a newer scam, Abstractism was a game that used Team Fortress 2 backpack icons for inventory items until it was removed from the Steam Store on 7/30/18 «for shipping unauthorized code, trolling with content, and scamming customers with deceptive in-game items» [20] . Scammers will «fake» that they have really expensive items (Australiums, Unusuals), sometimes there is no way to easily tell the fake items apart from the real items [21] , however some fake items don’t have the Team Fortress 2 logo next to it, use this to help distinguish fake items from another game. Valve has taken precautions in an effort to ensure that such scams do not reoccur in the future by adding warnings in trade windows for items which were recently added to the Steam store and for trading with items which a trading participant has never played the associated game for. These warnings can also be used to distinguish fake items from real ones.

      Трейдер tf2

      Все игроки в TF2 знают про существование торговли, и практически все ею пользовались. Но мало кто знает, как торговать правильно. Этому и посвящён этот небольшой гайд, цель которого — рассказать вам то, что другие не хотят (лишь потому что считают это «очевидным»).

      Правило первое. Не нервируйте других игроков.

      Взаимоуважение — это то, что должно связывать продавца и покупателя. Если вы хотите продать какой-либо предмет, лучше всего выбирать Trade-сервера (их легко узнать по префиксу «trade» в начале названия карты) или сервера с Trade-чатом, который другие игроки при желании смогут просто отключить. А если такой функции на сервере нет, то не стоит отправлять 10 сообщений за 15 секунд. Пишите о своём предложении раз в две-три минуты, а если в течение десяти — пятнадцати минут никто не отзывается — переходите на другой сервер.

      Не раз и не два ваш покорный слуга сталкивался с фразой «Да никто у тебя за такую цену не купит». Тут есть лишь два варианта. Первый — если вы продаёте никому не нужный предмет за востребованный, например, «Продам рыбу за две шапки!» В таком случае действительно стоит либо понизить цену, либо повысить предложение. Второй же вариант — вполне себе нормальная сделка, «Продам Старинную Пикельхаубе за две шапки!» Тут стоит помнить лишь одно: если товар действительно нужен покупателю, он его купит.

      Правило второе. Будьте вежливы.

      Это правило не несёт в себе ничего, кроме соблюдения элементарных норм поведения уже в самом окне торговли: уважай собеседника, поздоровайся с ним, если, конечно, вы не договорились о сделке в чате игровом. Общайся так, как бы общался с хорошим знакомым, и возможно, сможешь получить больше, чем мог бы.

      Правило третье. Не продавайте себе в убыток.

      Итак, вы видите в чате, что игрок покупает то, что у вас есть и вы готовы продать. Предлагайте ему обмен и спрашивайте, что он может отдать за этот предмет. Если он даёт вам, например, два старинных (ну или винтажных, кому как нравится) оружия за одно новое, то соглашайтесь. Если же он предлагает вам столько же, насколько ценится этот предмет — требуйте больше, не стесняйтесь. Как я уже говорил, если человеку что-то нужно, он это купит. При разумных расценках, конечно.

      Правило четвёртое. Если вам что-то нужно — покупайте.

      Представим ситуацию: вам срочно нужен какой-то предмет, к примеру, Крицкриг. Пишите сообщение в чате и ждите предложений. Например, у вас просят два-три других оружия. Соглашайтесь. Если вам этот самый Крицкриг так нужен, не будьте жадным, то покупайте. Может статься так, что больше предложений не будет.

      Правило пятое. Правильно составляйте сообщение.

      Итак, вам нужно продать какой-нибудь предмет. Кроме первого правила, стоит помнить, что составлять сообщение нужно правильно. Не стоит писать всё БОЛЬШИМИ БУКВАМИ или составлять просьбу, изобилующую знаками препинания. Также, заметьте, совсем ни к чему ставить «скобачки», смайлики))) Это просто сухая процедура обмена вещами, вспомните. Эмоции тут ни при чём.

      Знаю, что некоторым этот гайд ничего полезного так и не принёс. Но в таком случае лучше вам просто промолчать.

      Гайд написан мной, SlasHDriveR’ом. Удачной торговли и побольше вам шапок на рыло 😉
