Learn More about Roblox Backpack
The backpack in Roblox is a feature that allows the players to use the tools within. It means that in the backpack, there are a number of gears, items, commands and more that you can use in the game.
In Roblox, the backpack feature has existed since 2006, also known as one of the starting features. Aside from being used for using the tools, this feature can also be used for scripting. To show up the backpack, there are also hotkeys that exist numbered from 0 to 9.
To set which gears are determined to specific hotkeys or to use other allowed items which were not automatically added to the inventory bar, you can also click on the backpack icon that is located in the upper-left corner of the screen.
By clicking the backpack icon, it will open up your backpack. Then, it allows you to rearrange your inventory. You can click on an item and drag it to a new position to rearrange your inventory. If you want to close the backpack feature, you just simply click the backpack icon again.
In the Backpack feature, there are at least 4 LUA assets/ corescripts used to build the backpack from 2011 to 2014. Here are they:
Types of Backpacks By Year
The Roblox backpacks are divided into six types that are determined by year. Here are they:
- 2006 – 2009
The Roblox backpack that came in 2006 was very simple. This backpack could only carry up to 10 tools. It means that if you had too many tools, they would automatically disappear. To get those additional tools, you need to drive away from 3D tools by pressing backspace.
- 2009 – 2011
When the gear was announced in May 2009, Roblox administrators updated it, so you could only have up to around 30 gears or tools. However, it’s similar to the old backpack where the additional tools would automatically disappear.
In the fall of 2011, the Roblox backpack was updated allowing you to access any tools beyond 30. But, it was possible for the backpack to break and make the tools inaccessible. In this year, the Roblox backpack contained a search bar that could search up any relative tool name. The backpack button in 2011 – 2012 could be found near the player’s health bar.
The Roblox backpack that was used from 2012-2015 was the same as the previous one. However, the close button may not have appeared when you closed the backpack. You would have to click the arrow pointing up to access the backpack.
The Roblox backpack from 2015-2016 was the same as the previous one. However, the arrow pointing up was located on the top left corner with a backpack icon instead of an arrow.
From 2016 until now, the Roblox backpack has no arrow and features a transparent square for each gear. Up to 10 gears are shown on the main HUD.
- 2006 – 2009
How to Use Gears in Roblox?
When a Roblox game loads, it will automatically use gear that you have from the gear-types. However, it is used to fill the inventory bar located at the bottom of the screen. Each of the ten inventory slots will show a hotkey that is located in its upper-left corner that indicates what number will have to be pressed on your keyboard to equip the item for use.
Additionally, the basic gear functions can be turned on by clicking your left mouse button, although some gear probably have special functions.
