    New idea lending mechanism

    Lending mechanism.

    Okay Straight to the point. You have an option to lend your gun for however long you want by 1 hour the max being 12 hours this option will be in the radial menu under trade invite or whatever. . lets say you're a new player and you want to try out a gun but you can't cause you're poor in-game or maybe you are not sure to buy that gun and you'd like to test it out or rent a gun. so that's where this comes into play. Now let's say someone lends you a gun whatever ego you are it'll turn into that ego and you can't tamper with the gun only thing u can do is view it that's it can't replace mods or destroy it nothing like that. Once the time runs out the gun will go back to the originals owner inventory. Now what if you're full in inventory? Well i was thinking make 1 space extra for that lent gun and once u got space that extra inventory number will go to the original number, not claims cause what if you go in vacations and it ends up being scrapped cause it was left in claims. Just something new. Maybe you can add ideas into this or change a few things. Thoughts? Sorry if it's long to read btw

    I'm trying to think of a nice, helpful way to respond to this, seeing as how I'm coming back to the game after being away for nearly two years and I don't really hold much clout. But I want to be constructive and give you some feedback from my point of view.
    It's not a terrible idea......but.... (there's always a "but" in there, right?)
    Veteran players may reject this idea outright, simply because they worked hard for the privilege of owning some of these awesome guns and had to fight the RNG gods tooth and nail to acquire them. Even lending them in a no risk deal could be hard for some people to do, just based on the sentimental value some guns hold to their owners.
    I for one, often give away guns that I never see myself using, to lower ego clan members and friends just to help out or give someone a feel for a certain weapon type. I know many people who do this as well- No risk involved, use the gun for a few hundred ego and toss it, or give it away.
    Finding a higher ego mentor with a helpful attitude, and building a good relationship with that person is a better long term solution in my humble opinion.

    wouldn't work,most things in this game can be done/ completed very very quickly meaning borrow best possible gun for said time complete needed task....job done rinse repeat.

    and thinking like this you would have no need to earn anything/buy anything followed by the collapse of the economy soon after.

    If thats the case only one gun can be lent out and there will be a cooldown double the time you borrowed the gun

    Ehh its not the worst idea I've heard, but personally id rather they let us be able to bounce stuff to claims allowing us to move our stuff between toons without taking away from another's playing time. Also would allow us to be able to move account locked guns.

    Maybe just a 5-10 slot storage locker type kiosk located at 1 or 2 locations specifically for item transfers between toons.

    Baffles me as why this can't be implemented. Even if it used a chip puller. Free would be better but at minimal cost I would still use a puller.

    The same with pulling mods off guns. I've screwed up putting mods on guns that had the wrong synergy or nano converters to test out or used as placeholders until a better mod dropped or was found. That would rock if I could pull those mods rather than destroy them by having to overwrite them. Hate having to cover up a rare mod when it could be sold or used on something else in my hoarders haven.
