Death boxes are large crates dropped by dead players, containing every item they had when they died, as well as a banner card squad mates can use to revive them.
- The death box's menu organizes items in order of weapons → ammo → gear → regen items → grenades → attachments.
- Death boxes will glow in the color of its highest tier item.
- If a death box is emptied of all of its items, and there is no banner card to be retrieved, the death box will vanish.
- Death boxes will start out mobile, being able to be pushed around by players, but after ~5 seconds of stillness will become solid.
- If a player dies by falling off the map, their death box will be placed in the nearest possible spot on accessible land. However, if a death box falls off the map, there is no way to retrieve it. Death boxes might also end up being placed inside a Replicator or care package, making it more difficult to access the death box.
- When a player is respawned, they can see a faint blue outline around their death box, visible through walls.
- The surface of the death box contains a small screen with the dead player's banner pose, banner frame, and their username. Player badges will also be visible, and if there are more than 1 badge, only one badge will be shown at a time.
- The body shield that the player had when they died will be replenished fully.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When a character dies or is injured in the lore, sometimes a death box appears on the map. A notable example is when Forge was killed; his death box appeared in the Sorting Factory in World's Edge, where his death took place. Looting the death box provided the Steel Cut weapon charm.
