Whether you’re giving copper to a friend, ammo to a teammate, or some other item to a fellow Cleaner, it all uses the same mechanic in Back 4 Blood. Giving your ally these items is all done through the inventory menu.

Use the buttons shown on the bottom of the screen to drop ammo, give copper, and offer any excess items to your friends.

Open your inventory (Tab on PC) and mouse-over the item you want to give. Things like copper, ammo, and bandages can be dropped in smaller quantities using left-click or right-click to drop the whole lot. So if you want one player to purchase the upgrades that benefit your team, you’ll want to use the “drop all” option. You can also click and drag the item off the menu to drop it. As for dropping weapons, just left-click the weapon to drop it.
