Everyone knows trading in Team Fortress 2 kinda sucks. Sure, there’s the whole awkward interface and a bunch of hat mongers constantly closing the dialog window on you like jerks, but the real problem isn’t the software. It’s finding someone who wants your garbage.
You have dozens of weapons lying around that have no real value. Hell, you might have some decent hats, but finding someone who wants your specific pieces of headwear just isn’t easy.
Luckily, there’s TF2 Warehouse.
What is TF2 Warehouse? It’s
a company that paid me hundreds of dollars to advertise here an automated web site that lets you buy and sell any item in TF2 for virtual currency. Instead of looking for someone who wants your Vintage Jarate, you can sell it to a bot for a few hundred “points,” then use those points to purchase anything your heart desires. Your ability to offload your refuse isn’t hampered at all (though crates are temporarily disabled), and your selection of items to buy is limited only by the stuff that’s been sold so far, which is quite a large selection.
Here’s the actual process involved:
- Run Steam. That is, if you aren’t running it 24/7 already.
- Go to TF2 Warehouse and “sign in via Steam.” This is probably secure.
- You’ll receive 500 points for absolutely no reason. Yay!
- Hit the “trade” button under the chat window to the right. You’re now in line!
- When your turn comes up, one of the TF2WH bots will friend and trade request you. Accept!
- Drag anything you want to sell into the trade, and “buy” anything you’d like from the inventory.
- Your TF2WH account will be updated with your balance. Enjoy your virtual urine jar!
How has my own personal experience been so far? Well, buggy. I’ve gotten a few errors and yes, the goddamn bot has closed the trade window on me (curses, karma!). But I’ve yet to “lose” anything, and hundreds of players are discovering the site every day, so the variety of items is skyrocketing. Best get in on the ground floor, n’est-ce pas?
You don’t have to take my word for it – go check out TF2 Warehouse today!
