Allow players to gift purchased items to other players?

    Edit: I forgot to add the 'Suggestion' title prefix, and the forum doesn't let you edit titles after posting, damn it...

    For instance, maybe a new player wants a nice 'starting kit' bundle, but they are hesitant to spend money on this game right away. Theoretically, we could have a veteran player buy this starting kit themselves, then send it to the new player as a 'gift' of sorts.

    DBG would still profit, because the item would still need to be purchased prior to gifting it to the new player. I certainly wouldn't mind buying then tossing a free gift gun to a newbie every now and again, at any rate...

    There's been a time or two I would have liked to hand my buddy something. But alas, no gifting allowed. Always made me curious as nearly any other game with any sort of in-game market allows for gifting.

    I'd like this option aswell. Not everyone even has a credit card.

    I can see tons of baseless default camo players hanging crossroads stopping sunderers asking for DBG coin...

    That's when you pull up in your fully decked out vehicle of choice smoking a cigar, get out to show off your finely tailored combat suit and hand out a few shekels before hopping back in and punching the gas leaving a trail of dirt and exhaust for them to cough in while you drive away laughing.
