There was a dedicated button for dropping weapons on PC, but I'm not sure if there is one on PS4. While playing online, I died, so my friend picked my gun up so he could give it back to me when I respawned. Unfortunately, neither of us could figure out how to drop it and when I checked the control scheme in-game, there was no button for dropping weapons.

Is there a way to drop a weapon on PS4? If so, how can I do it?

Yes, it is possible to drop your weapon, though as noted in the question, there is not a dedicated button for it. After searching for a while, I found this thread that explains how to do it:

You have to be holding the weapon, hold triangle and hit R1

Thus, to drop a weapon, equip it, hold triangle, and press R1.

It's worth noting there are some weapons that you cannot drop, such as the 9mm and your knife. These do not take up any weight, so it will not affect what you can carry, though.
