Care Packages (also called air drops, loot pods, crates, or some combination) are containers of loot occasionally dropped into the arena.

Spawning[edit | edit source]

Throughout the match, four care packages will be announced to all players; the location of the drop is signified by a cluster of blue circles on the minimap, and by a blue circle in person. Care packages will always spawn inside the next ring.

Round Amount Announcement time Landing time Total time to arrive
Round 1 2 3:10 before ring close 2:15 before ring close 55 seconds
Round 2 1 0:45 before ring close 0:00 before ring close 45 seconds
Round 3 1 0:35 before ring close 0:00 before ring close 35 seconds

Unopened care packages emit a blue beacon of light above them.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If a drop is landing near you, consider waiting for other groups to approach it so that they may be attacked near inopportune cover. Likewise, be sure to scout the nearby area before approaching a drop.
