Prices are variable, they depend on supply and demand. And also what a person is willing to offer/sell them for. There is no Pricelist that wouldn't be outdated after a week or so.

Having said that, there are items in the market that are consistently sold for the same price and only fluctuate between two or three keys less.

I can give a few examples: A 15% looter will be lucky to get two keys in trade. Standard prem box 7.5% masks range from 2-5 keys.

Seriously? Is that normal, if yes, I get unlucky during the day, the people in Trade when I'm on say they are worth nothing, even after the box drop times :(

As mentioned before, its too hard to put specific prices on every item. but if you know what people value you will have better chances to make a proper deal and avoid being "low ball-ed" or scammed.

 

while there is no exact "price formula" for items you can usually assume it works that way for guns and gears 

"item cost = base item (*) + main enchantment (*) + secondary enchantments + trader lobby"

 

Base item - low lvl items cost less while high lvl items cost more. (*) Adding to that there is the "usefulness" factor, certain types of item are more valuable for specific player group. Base item does not greatly modify the base cost, its only  important when added to the right main enchantment.

 

Main enchantment - The usefulness factor itself. the item's main purpose. it defines the majority of the item's price, the better the effect the higher the cost. Each player group values a particular enchantment and base item, you need to find the correct match in order to measure properly its value:

 

examples:

Most expensive items enchants (Raiders)

a) Range is the most important enchantment For Long Rifles, since they are the raiding main weapon. depending on base item those weapons could easily cost beyond 20 keys.

b ) Suppressing bonus enchantment for LMG and Assalt Rifles, those are secondary raiding weapons and usually cost way less than the main raiding weapon (LR)

c) Projectile resistance - 70% projectile resistance are the most wanted.

 

Most expensive items enchants (Scavengers) 

Reload speed - For weapons in general but specially for shotguns due its bush-back effect.

Bush-back - For melee weapons.

Melee protection - padded armors with 50% are very expensive

 

Secondary Enchantments - They are all the other enchantments present on the item. they could increase, not modify or even decrease the item base cost. Usually if they fall in line with the main enchantment they increase the item overall cost, if they aren't in line but don't affect negatively they don't significantly alter the price. If they detracts from the item purpose they decrease the final price.

 

Examples

A) Damage bonus to a shotgun (with Reload speed as main ench) would increase its price.

B ) Silenced bonus to a Long Rifle (range main ench) could also reduce its damage, it would decrease the final price.

C) Increased melee resistance to a ballistic armor (projectile main ench) wouldn't significantly alter the item cost.

 

Trade Lobby - The trader's purpose on the deal is to make profit. So you can assume without doubt they will be announcing the item's price above its real value. Most traders don't even have to bargain to sustain their profit simply because the great majority of people involved in trading, due its utterly subjective structure, aren't aware of the real cost of what they are buying/selling. Few measures can be taken to avoid being fooled:

 

A) Always bargain for a lower price. You can just ask for a better price or barter with another item the reduction of few keys.

B ) Ask other traders for the item's price. Very useful if you are unsure if the item is overpriced. Although I would not ask such information to traders that are in the same alliance.

C) Consider a cheaper alternative. Between a unique LR and a rare LR with the same stats the rare will usually be cheaper. same applies for crafted items.

D) Most premium items sucks, except for clothing and few event items.

 

SCAMMING - A foul practice where the dealer will try to fool you. detected scamming practices goes as below:

A) If other player/trader enter the dealing to offer a better price/item its ok. If they however enter an on-going dealing to encourage the purchase you might want to call it off. (third parties attempting to convince you that an overpriced cost is in fact the regular price)


B ) Item Swamping - The scammer will try to change their item on the trading screen. If you need to click confirm trade more than once you better check again the item you are buying to see it has the same stats as before.

Not sure where you came from buy lying in order to get profit will always be immoral in my book. If you are presented with an expensive car that supposedly goes from 0 to 100 km/hr in 10 seconds, and after it is bought you realize it takes not 10 but 30 seconds to reach the given speed means you have been fooled into paying more than what the car is worth. Just because we use game currency (keys) doesn't mean people should lie and fool freely. That's "low trading". And might i remind you that we are dealing with (virtual) goods, which some were acquired with real money.

 

I just hope by defending "low trading" you aren't publicly announcing that you practice those trading methods. because people who read that will surely think twice before dealing with you.
