Interacting with them to receive free items
After locating a NPC you will have to interact with them in order to get the items from them. To talk to a character, simply approach them and press the interact button. Once you’ve interacted with them, they will give you a free item.
You can only get one free item from each character per match. However, you can talk to as many characters as you want. Ensure your inventory is not full when the free items are awarded or they will be dropped on the floor for you to manually pick them up.
