The Scout delivering packages by catapult

The Giftapult is a tool item for all classes, which may be used to deliver one tradable item in the user's backpack to a random online player.

Description

When used with an item in the user's backpack, the Giftapult is replaced in the backpack with a Loaded Giftapult, which is loaded with A Carefully Wrapped Gift containing that item. Once the Loaded Giftapult is used, the gift will be sent, wrapping worse for wear, to a random online player instantly, appearing in that player's backpack as a Delivered Giftapult Package.
