What to buy from the merchant
We recommend that you stick to the following purchase priority when visiting the merchant:
- Case improvements – the wider the inventory, the more guns and equipment you can store in it;
- New weapons – it is better to save up in advance for the required weapons and upgrades to it; See our weapon guide and upgrade guide for details.
- Recipes for crafting ammo are the only way to replenish ammo other than getting ammo from loot;
- Specials – Discounted weapons can sometimes be found, just keep an eye on these deals at the top of the list;
Note: Try not to buy Healing Spray unless absolutely necessary. Its high price will hit the budget very hard, not allowing you to save enough pesetas to buy weapons.
What to sell to a merchant
Regarding the issue of emptying your inventory of unnecessary items, we advise you to take a closer look at the following principles:
- First of all, sell jewelry that has no other use (they have a postscript that they are only suitable for sale) ;
- Gem-slotted art is best set with gem slots before being exchanged for pesetas at a higher rate;
- Used keys can also be sold for a small reward;
- Finally, when you don't have enough cash to buy an upgrade or a weapon, you can sell some of the ammo, especially if you don't plan on spending that particular type of ammo.
