Starting today, you get limited time gifting until 22 February, and today you will also be able to send the Heartspan Glider to a special player until 15 February, 7 pm ET. In this rather novel mode, all guns have been removed, leaving players with nothing but grenades and other types of throwable at their disposal. Until midnight United Kingdom tomorrow, you can send the Heartspan Glider to another player for free to make them feel special on this love-centric holiday.
