- Zoom in and press X when the message appears on the screen
- . They will send an invitation to exchange and their friends need to accept the invitation .
- Choose a gun or pistols or other items to trade from your available inventory

- Press X to send mail
- Choose a item in his inventory and a friend to send it to
Before even starting to think However, in this regard, no, you cannot exchange weapons to obtain a super powerful weapon from the beginning to destroy enemies and bosses. The weapons are locked at the level, which means that you will probably need to be close (but not exactly) to the same level as your friend with whom you exchange to start using the new weapon immediately.
Even so, even with a large level disparity, this can still be useful. If a top-level friend is filling his inventory with weapons that they know they won't use, they can download some to free up space. Or if they get an incredible and rare roll with great bonus effects, but it is for a type of weapon that they will never use and will do, it is perfect to send it to you safely.
