How to drop items to teammates in Back 4 Blood

Help a teammate out with some ammo.

Teamwork is at the core of Back 4 Blood’s gameplay. Everything you do is working towards helping yourself and the other cleaners you play with. With the Game Director, sometimes finding the proper items and resources can be difficult for some players. To make sure everyone has a fighting chance to pull their weight, you may want to drop something for a teammate to pick up. Here is how to do so.

As of this writing, we have only had access to the Closed Alpha on PC, meaning we cannot say for sure how dropping an item will work in the console versions of Back 4 Blood. When we get our hands on those versions, we will update this post.

To drop an item on PC, press TAB. This pulls up your current inventory. On this page, you will see your weapons, offensive and supportive equipment, your copper stash, your ammo types, and how much you have of each. To drop a particular item, highlight it and left-click. For copper and ammo, left-clicking will drop 50 of that item, and right-clicking will drop all you have of it. Your character will immediately dump whatever you chose onto the ground in front of them, and your teammates can pick them up without needing to spend any copper or anything else.
