A Weapon Crate or Supply Drop is a crate containing weapons, ammunition, and gadgets. They allow the player to resupply and to change their loadout.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit
Supply Drops appear in the singleplayer of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It allows the player to change loadouts and/or resupply ammo. It will contain any weapons that the player has picked up earlier in the campaign, as well as C4 and the M2 Carl Gustav in certain levels.
The Supply Drop makes a few appearances in multiplayer as a static object, such as in Atacama Desert in Flag A for Conquest.
Weapon Crates are featured in Battlefield 4. They contain default weapons for each mission, as well as any Collectible Weapons picked up throughout the campaign, and any unlocked by single-player Assignments. The weapon crate does not contain or resupply gadgets. Ammo for weapons is resupplied by standing near the crate.
Gadget Crates are also present, containing various Explosive gadgets. In the level Baku, only C4 Explosives and the M320 are available, while in Shanghai, only M18 Claymores, M15 AT Mines, and C4 Explosives are available through it, but in other missions they can contain anti-tank Rocket Launchers, anti-air launchers, and grenade launchers. Ammo for all gadgets is resupplied by standing near the crate.
Weapon Crates appear in Battlefield 1 singleplayer. Unlike previous games, they do not resupply the player nor allow the player to freely change their loadout. Instead, the crates are found individually scattered throughout the map, and each one contains a single piece of equipment.
There are three types of weapon creates. One contains firearms (including the AT Rocket Gun), one contains gadgets, and one contains grenades.
These weapon crates can often be found in weapon tents and supply stations.
