Trading Problems and the Direct Hit
I badly want a Strange Stickybomb Launcher. I very desperately want it. So desperately I would be willing to give up one third of my inventory on it. So why aren't I? I'm a "Gibus F2P Noob Who Can't Trade Because I'm Poor" (which is partly true, just partly). The only way I could get one is to Giftapult my TOD Ticket to someone who wants it than take the Sticky Launcher. But there are several problems. Firstly, how am I sure that the person is trustable? I may use the Giftapult on the TOD Ticket in an empty server, then what would he do? Will he run off with it or keep his side of the deal? Next, even if I suggest a different sequence of "events", will he trust me? I don't think anyone would trust a complete stranger. What should I do?

Also, I don't think Direct Hit rockets are reflectable. I tried out pyro tennis with a Direct Hit rocket and both me and my friend couldn't seem to make it return. Anyone else got the same problem?

Gitfapults don't work that way. They give it to *any TF2 player* regardless of server. You don't even have to be on a server when you use one, nor does the recipient.

(edit: by any, I mean: completely randomly chosen, there's nothing you can do about it. It's not any, your choice; it's literally any.)

*Sigh* Guess I really can't have it until I spend some money then.

They're the fastest rocket, you'll require alot of skill to reflect one.

Heck, I find it easier to reflect a repair claw. Worse, a fully-charged arrow.

What I actually meant: did Valve even make it possible to reflect the Direct Hit rocket? I'm sure either my friend or I must have hit it once or twice with the airblast. Has anyone actually reflected it before?

Any rocket is reflectable. DR just requires better timing.
