How To Drop Items in Roblox
Roblox is a massive online game designed as a safe place for kids to play, create and express themselves. It is a huge ecosystem where a world is created for players and you’re left to pretty much get on with it. Roblox players have created their own worlds, own items, minigames and all kinds of stuff. As a game with lots of items, inventory management is key. This tutorial is going to show you how to drop or trade items in Roblox.
As with most games, you have limited inventory space and managing all your stuff can become quite a chore. Not quite to Skyrim standards but difficult enough that performing a little housekeeping every now and again makes the game much easier to manage. The ability to check your inventory on the Roblox website adds a little extra convenience but not much.
Inventory actually has a lot of interest in Roblox. From checking out what other players have in theirs, to picking up random stuff people leave lying around, it’s a small but engaging aspect of the game.
Inventory privacy in Roblox
A favorite pastime of some players would be to follow developers or other players around in Roblox and check out their inventory. This would give you an idea of what items might be coming to the game or just satisfy curiosity. If you’re a budding clothes designer, snooping on people’s inventory was a fantastic way of getting inspiration.
It was a surprisingly popular pastime if the Roblox forums are anything to go by. That all stopped when they added inventory privacy as a setting though. Accessed from within the usual privacy settings in Roblox, you can control who gets to see what in your inventory. It’s a small change but one that stopped inventory tourism in its tracks.
To make your inventory private in Roblox, log into your account and select the cog menu. Select Settings and Privacy and set your inventory to your desired setting.
Navigating your inventory online in Roblox
The in-game inventory option is pretty good but once you start filling it up, the website is the way to go. Like customizing your character or designing clothes, it’s the website that offers the easiest way to manage certain game functions. Not ideal but not game breaking either.
- Navigate to the Roblox website and log in.
- Select the menu icon in the top left and select Inventory.
- Use the menu on the left to select item categories and navigate from there.
If you don’t see the item you’re looking for, there is a page selector at the bottom of each page. If your inventory spans multiple pages, use that to find it.
Dropping items in Roblox
People are often leaving stuff lying around in Roblox. Depending on your server, time of day and population, you will often see random items just sitting there begging to be picked up. If someone has dropped something and is no longer around, those items are fair game too.
If you want to drop something, you can.
Select the item in your inventory and select backspace. This will drop everything except hats, which you need to use the ‘=’ key for some reason. This works for every item in your inventory.
Trading items in Roblox
One of the many systems within Roblox is trading. As long as you’re a Builders Club subscriber, you can trade items from within your inventory. You can also design and sell items too but that’s separate.
Trading is something of a uninvolved process where you visit the profile of the player you want to trade with, select the items and trade them. There is no in-game meeting or barter and no exchange animation. It’s all done through the inventory.
- Select the player profile of the person you want to trade with.
- Select the three dot menu icon in the top left of their page and select Trade Items.
- Select the items you want to trade within the popup window that appears.
- Add Robux if you’re adding in-game currency.
- Select Submit.
Once you add items to the trade window, you can hover the cursor over each to see any stats for it or to add or remove it from trade. Once you hit Submit, a message is sent to the other player for them to accept or reject that trade.
Trading is a big part of Roblox and requires a little more research than this small paragraph. Learn much more about it here on the Roblox website.
The ability to drop or trade items in Roblox helps keep your inventory fresh and manageable and is a cool way of getting new gear while getting rid of the old. It may take a little while to get to grips with but the effort is well worth it!
