How to Drop Items in Roblox

When we were new, one of the most annoying learning experiences we’ve had was learning how to drop items in Roblox — especially those junk items. We were so surprised to see that plenty of people have been looking for a solution to that. 

Now, we must admit, the game inventory user interface of Roblox is not the best we’ve seen. Still, it has plenty of compromises to ensure safety from random stuff people make, such as accidentally dropping something of value. 

Speaking of dropping something, today is all about learning how to drop your junk in Roblox. Additionally, we’re also going to talk about trading and why it’s better to make trade requests than dropping items. Let’s get on with it!

Item Trading vs Item Drop

For some users, the concept of dropping items is quite new as there’s really no formal tutorial when it comes to the world of Roblox. While the game creation platform is really great, the game developer hasn’t really implemented a great control scheme to handle the most basic game interactions.

When dealing with in-game items, there are proper times to drop items and to trade them. When exchanging items with one player, we highly recommend doing it via trade to ensure a smoother transaction. 

As you may know, items you drop can be picked up by anyone on the server, so if you’re dealing with something precious, maybe try trading instead? Consider dropping useless items as they serve no purpose for you.

Disclaimer: Not every item is tradable, these items should be Limited/Limited U for them to be qualified for a trade. Of course, when dropping items, the collection of items can be quite troublesome especially if there are multiple players around you

How to Trade Items in Roblox

Unlike item dropping, trading items in Roblox would require you to do it via the browser. The process is really simple but here’s the correct process for doing so:

Step 1

Head to the player’s profile page and click the three dots on the upper right corner

Step 2

Look for ‘Trade Items’ and wait for the new page to open

Step 3

You should see the ‘Trade with Roblox Player’ window. Choose the items you want to trade from your inventory to proceed.

Step 4

Hit ‘Make Offer’ when done.

Disclaimer: The amount of Robux you trade cannot exceed 50% of the current offer. This is calculated after the transaction fee is taken off the overall charge.


There’s nothing more exciting than sharing something with the online gaming community. When you learn how to drop items in Roblox because you want to be charitable, then it’s a very noble gesture. When playing on a server with players, be sure to be more vigilant when it comes to dropping items.

At the end of the day, the game engine that Roblox runs is still getting better by the day. Pretty soon, we’ll see a dedicated button for dropping useless items. Then again, it’s a game for kids, and doing extra stuff in order to drop something is quite clever. This way, your kid won’t accidentally drop something that costs some serious Robux.
