Why are my items not tradeable?

Every item that dropped for me, including a fall crate, is not tradeable. What gives?

Are you F2P?

Yes.

F2P accounts can only trade a few specific things like paint.

People that trade you can still give you things, and those things can be traded without restrictions.

But should someone give you something usable for crafting, such as a refined metal you can break down into scrap metal pieces, the result won't be tradeable while you're F2P.

f2p players can't trade, or rather they can't give anything, however they can receive things (don't expect people to give you stuff, very few people will do so)

if the items are marked as being unable to be traded, it's because they were likely unlocked by achievements, see here for more info:

reaching a milestone for a class will give you an item for that specific class.

basically, go buy something for 99 cents in the store. turning your account premium is guaranteed to pay off for you eventually.
