This is not possible. The engine does not support linking an item to a player. There is no such thing as "Bobs XM8" :( 

I think you're coming at it from the wrong angle.  You know the dead player's UID and consequently which pins are tied to them in the database.  You could have it "download" the list and display it in the killer's XM8 window and the player could "write them down", storing them for future use in a "notepad" section of the XM8.  The notepad data could also be stored in the database or uiNameSpace and would be persistent across multiple respawn events.

Yes please, just make sure we have a way to create copies of the keys too.

Nope. We only store the owner UID. If a friend was driving, there is no way to know who "knows".

If you kill a player you get a list of all pins attached to their UID.  Maybe they're the owner of the vehicle or base they were killed next to and maybe they're not.  That is irrelevant.  The killer still gets a reward for the kill by way of getting a list of pins.  They don't know what devices they go to.  They still have to do a little bit of work to get anything out of it.  It's not an immediate win.

FANTASTIC ! vote yes. If possible we would need to add key maker kit as well to avoid the "i lost my key" issues. 2 tin cans +  Key maker kit = duplicate key?
