3487 ratings | 146853 views
*I Accidentally said that there are 10 scrap in a ref. This is WRONG. There are technically 9 scrap in a refined metal. That is my mistake.* This has been a video that has been requested to me for quite a while now and I thought I would finally make it. It took me quite a while to gather everything for this video, so apologies if the upload is a little late! This is a guide on how the tf2 economy works, including key value, trading refined metal for keys, and the different types of metal. It is also a guide on the different sites, including tf2outpost, backpack.tf & scrap.tf. I give a very rough guide on howt to look for profitable trade! Let me know if this helps you guys, and what more you would like to see in the future! http://backpack.tf/ - The main site to find prices http://www.tf2outpost.com/ - Outpost (The Main Trading Site) https://scrap.tf/ - Scrap (The Automated Trading Site) ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Connect with me! ● Twitter :https://twitter.com/pyrojoe_ ● Steam Group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/PyroJoeYouTube

PSA: THERE ARE 9 SCRAP IN A REF, NOT 10. I Accidentally said that there are 10 scrap in a ref. This is WRONG. There are technically 9 scrap in a refined metal. That is my mistake You don't need to tell me that there are 9 scrap in a refined. Thank you, and I hope I helped!

Heck some of the taunts are really expensive on the market/backpack.tf
Tristen Womack (17 days ago)
The websites are more buying than trading because you can't do anything with scr, rec, ref and keys but trading in *the real world* trading would be i give you peanuts and you give me chocolate

I remember when I first started trading, I didn't know that crates were basically worthless, and I tried to offer him a Violet Vermin case for an Unusual

thanks, i'm still a noob at the game but i already have two spare short circuits which i now see i can use to trade for a l'etranger or make some scrap and save for better trades
Zingymeatball88 (2 months ago)
I used scrap.tf to get a bunch of my items when I started playing in 2016. Got most of my weapons (no reskins) easily that way since a weapon is worth 0.5 scrap so you could get 2 for the price of 1 scrap
Brandon Snider (3 months ago)
thanks for the video it cleared up a lot of questions
xd ThatGuy_ (4 months ago)
but what if an Unusual is 15.55 keys what is the 15.(55) key thing. is it half the key??
b man (1 month ago)
That would be 15 keys and 0.55 keys worth of refined metal

Wyatt Chew (6 months ago)

[Akurami ] (6 months ago)
I see trading as not worth it because i got scammed once, and i am keeping as far from trading as possible. Try to change my mind why should i trade.
[Akurami ] (6 months ago)
But is the risk of getting scammed and losing everything you worked so hard for really worth it?
Admexir (6 months ago)
Because you want those cool hats, skins and others!!! Theyre too expensive to buy for money...
Captain Capsize (6 months ago)

You said something about "selling to a quick seller" what do you mean by this? and how is it done?
Cheez (11 months ago)
You need to be P2P to trade?
TuxedoShark (1 year ago)
I have a question. I decided to check out backpack.tf after watching your video and the first thing I did was check out my backpack to see what my stuff was worth, curiosity and all, and I found a few items that are registered there that I can't find in my backpack, what are your thoughts?

bukets TM (1 year ago)
Is selling a weapon for 1 scrap profitable? I kinda want to just trade my weapons up to Merc's Muffler and Deus Specs.
ุ ุ ุ ุ (1 year ago)
Trix No, not really as it takes a long time and is tedious. I would recommend hat banking to start, as it's like scrap banking, except more easier and faster. You can also do steam trading cards (buy low, sell high), although I've never tried that :)
Im a new trader, I have been P2P for a year and have lots of hats that I had unboxed but no unusual. I recently figured out the Mobile Accelerator. But still have the trade hold for 1 more week. I sold that demoman drunk taunt for several ref today, the guy didn’t care about the trade hold.
Kevin Patai (1 year ago)
Soo how do i start ?? When i want to hatbanking i should buy lower and sell higher ??

Kevin Patai yes
PabloC4 (1 year ago)
How i buy scrap with my steam money? like buyng an item and them selling for scrap, i don't have enought for a key but almos that.
ุ ุ ุ ุ (1 year ago)
You can't buy any crafting items on the market, but you can buy on the steam market or marketplace.tf, say something that has a value of a bit less than a key(like a weapon or cosmetic or tool) and then sell that on backpack.tf
ุ ุ ุ ุ (1 year ago)
You can sell items for real money on marketplace.tf
Im a p2p, Have hats and taunts and lots of weps, Sad thing is nobody wants to trade me cuz of this “Trade Hold”

ุ ุ ุ ุ (1 year ago)
Boss Man did you make sure your steam inventory is set to public, and not friends only or private? If it is not public, it can't display your inventory.
