what do i buy for premium

hello i will go premium
but for going premium i have to buy something
what items are good to buy because i do not know what is hard to get once i have the premium

i hear from people that sticky jumper is good to buy but i think it is bad because it does not deal damage

other people say i should buy the box unlocking key but i do not have any box so i do not know about the key

can you help me with deciding what to buy premium? i have 5 euros for the premium

Personally, I would use the money to buy two keys. You don't have to use these to unbox crates, in fact I wouldn't recommend that. You can sell them for about 2 refined and a reclaimed and use that metal to buy the stuff you want. DON'T buy weapons from the store, you can get them much much cheaper trading in game. Same goes for most hats.

1 scrap for any weapon, except for some like the holiday punch, which can be 2 scrap, or the sticky jumper, which is 3 scrap/1 reclaimed if it isnt craftable. You should ask around the forums to find out which weapons are best for newbies, and browse the Official TF2 Wiki to find out which weapons you would like best.

I just bought the cheapest weapon I could find (which costed like 0,4 euros) because I just cared to become a premium member and then I used the rest of the money to buy a small and cheap game.

okay thank you now i understand
i bought two keys for my money
and then i sold the keys for 4 refined metal and 2 reclaimed metal
and then i used the crafting to turn the metal into scrap metal
and then i asked people if i could buy the weapons for the scrap metal

this works really well i already swapped a scrap for this direct hit with really fast rockets and i swapped a scrap for this concheror which heals you

thank you everyone

A weapon is usually 1 Scrap.

A Key is.. what, 24 Scrap?

And you're buying 2 keys. That's 48 Scrap, and gets you a LOT of weaponry.

You could probably get every wep in the game with two keys if you find someone ready to make bulk deals.
