We’re proud to announce the “Add Gear to Game” feature–all users can now allow specific gear items from the ROBLOX Catalog in their game and sell those gear items directly on their game page. If users choose to buy an item from your game page, you’ll earn yourself a 10% commission. It’s like Amazon’s “Associates” Program, and it’s mutually beneficial. It will help us increase the reach and scope of our Catalog, and we’ll let you keep some of the sales.
Our Catalog has undergone many changes over the years, and we continue to develop it so it’s easier to use, navigate and ultimately find the gear you need for your ROBLOXian. Today, an overhaul of the Catalog launched on Roblox.com, bringing new functionality and a better user experience to shopping on ROBLOX.

The new gear category filter allows users to to search gear by type (i.e., “melee weapons” or “explosives”), and the new creator filter allows users to see what kind of models and items ROBLOX users are creating.

We’ve compiled two lists, comprising 10 of the most popular items in the Catalog, with some details into the underlying code that powers them. Continue reading →

The ROBLOX Catalog features a number of swords that deal huge damage and, in some cases, carry additional properties. Here’s an overview of the most powerful swords we have to offer and their damage statistics. Continue reading →
ROBLOX sells prepaid cards that players can redeem for Robux and Builders Club memberships at many merchants, including participating GameStops, Targets and Best Buys. It’s worth pointing out that prepaid cards from certain stores also come with virtual gear or a hat – refreshed every month.
