 +====Selling====
 +
 +Additionally,​ weapons can be sold to Drebin in order to acquire Drebin Points (DP). These weapons are sold and DP is awarded according to the formula detailed below. Be aware that this formula applies even before Drebin is met for the first time in game, and awards points despite no visuals being displayed.
 +
 +> DP = Gun Value * Method of Acquirement * Difficulty & Act Scaling
 +
 +And the formula for machines is similar.
 +
 +> DP = Machine Value * Difficulty & Act Scaling
 +
 +
 +===Gun/​Machine Value===
 +Gun Value is a fixed number, intrinsic to every weapon when it is picked up from the ground. The above and below tables detail these values. Of the below table, only the AK-102 & Chaff G. can be acquired multiple times in a single play-through,​ and only the AK-102 selling value applies to a New Game, as the other weapons can only be acquired once per play-through or, in the case of chaffs, a maximum of 8 can be picked up per play-through,​ which is not enough to reach the maximum allowed amount.\\
 +
 +^ Weapon ^ Subtype ^ Act # ^ 1st Pickup Location ^ Notes ^ Selling Value (DP) ^
 +^ Mk. 23 | Handgun | 4 | Helipad | Under Truck | 5000 |
 +^ AK-102 | Rifle | 0 | Ground Zero | Required\\ One Less DP (BBH) | 900 |
 +^ XM8 | Rifle | 2 | Power Station 2 | Left Path | 3000 |
 +^ VSS | Rifle | 2 | Confinement Facility | Left Path | 5400 |
 +^ Chaff G. | Explosive | 2 | Power Plant | 4 Total Locations | 1500 |
 +^ Mantis Doll | ETC | 5 | Command Center | Required | 10000 |
 +^ Sorrow Doll | ETC | 5 | Command Center | Optional | 10000 |
 +
 +^ Machine Name ^ Machine Value (DP) ^
 +^ Irving (Gekko) | 500 |
 +^ Raven Drone | 100 |
 +^ Scarab (Dwarf Gekko) | 50 |
 +
 +
 +===Method of Acquirement===
 +Method of Acquirement has four possible values: 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, or 1.0.\\
 +  * 0.1 is obtained by defeating the wielder via lethal means, machine or human, and picking up their weapon
 +  * 0.2 is obtained by stunning, knocking out, or putting to sleep the wielder and picking up their weapon
 +  * 0.3 is obtained by defeating an enemy using an environmental effect, such as a barrel or NPC 
 +  * 1.0 is obtained when a weapon is picked up, from the ground while full, such as grenades, or after already acquired, such as the XM8 or Javelin, and sold directly to Drebin. This can occur for weapons received from hold-ups, CQC disarms, Emotion Rounds causing an enemy to drop their held weapon, and pre-placed spawns.
 +  * Certain weapons, such as the AK-102 on BBH, MK. 17 on TBE, and WP G. on TBE actually reward 1 fewer DP then intended when the Method of Acquirement is 1.0.
 +
 +\\
 +
 +===Difficulty & Act Scaling===
 +Difficulty & Act Scaling is a scaler multiple. These values are listed in the below table:\\
 +^ ^ Acts 0, 1 & 2 ^ Act 3 ^ Act 4 ^ Act 5 ^
 +^ LE, NN & SN | 1.00 | 1.20 | 1.50 | 2.00 |
 +^ BBH | 0.80 | 0.95 | 1.20 | 1.50 |
 +^ TBE | 0.50 | 0.60 | 0.75 | 1.00 |
 +
 +So for example, if you picked up MK. 17 in Act 3 from an enemy you tranquilized on Big Boss Hard, you would get DP = 1050 * 0.2 * 0.95 = 199\\
 +If you defeated a Scarab (D.E) in Act 4 on TBE and picked up the D.E. you would get DP = 50 * 0.75 + 10000 * 0.1 * 0.75 = 787
