Should i get Backpack.tf Premium?


Recommended Posts

i don't really trade often so this is a rare occasion for me, but there's an item i've always wanted to have and had been looking for it for 7 years now.

 

unfortunately, only 6 of said item exist, and i've checked all safe known trading websites for them (backpack.tf, marketplace.tf, steam community market, scrap.tf, bazaar.tf, stn trading, etc) to no avail.

 

at this point, i'm running short on any way of finding it, other than buying backpack tf premium and using the premium search option to find the owners of said item and contact them.

 

should i do it?

First I'd go check the price suggestions on said item, see if you can get a history link or two from the compare links. If that doesn't get you anywhere then you'd probably have to either play the waiting game and hope one comes up or get premium to find one (though with only 6 of the hat in existence it's very possible nobody wants to sell depending on what the hat is)

On high tiers that is often the case, but on low tiers they tend to change hands pretty often

If you dont use it everyday I'd just ask a premium user for a favour if it's a one time thing

It would also help just making a buy order for it as well. Let people know you're hunting for whatever it is you're looking for.

 

Also, it sometimes takes being very patient. Some of the things in my collection required waiting years before they resurfaced on the market.

already put a buy order at backpack.tf and bazaar.tf a few weeks ago. are there any other sites i can put specific buy orders at? (marketplace.tf and SCM are automatic and non-specific).

https://backpack.tf/classifieds?item=Blood Botkiller Minigun Mk.I&quality=11&tradable=1&craftable=1&australium=-1&killstreak_tier=3
Only one on the market on sale here for 30 keys.

 

No minigun kits with the same combination anywhere on SCM or Marketplace.

 

Definitely is quite expensive, so may be worth thinking about whether having that specific combination of Team Shine and Incinerator is really worth it that you negotiate with the seller / wait longer to find another seller, get Premium and reveal the owners' information here, or see whether you're happy to settle for a cheaper option.

So the next question becomes "Is it worth an extra 15 bucks?". Sometimes you wait for the sale, other times you spend a bit more to make sure you can get it. There's no real right answer, just what you feel personally is right.
