They are too big to be stored in the vacpack, but can be held onto the nozzle and launched against a wall to break them open. They can also be broken by letting them drop from a great height, or being shot with any resources, with the exception of Echoes and Ornaments.
As well as being randomly found in specific locations, they can also be found in packs of 2 or 3 after bursting a Gordo - both wild and snared. They are also awarded on a successful trade at the Range Exchange which automatically break if allowed to drop to the floor. These crates contain the items presented on the trade window.
Crates despawn if not opened, so it is impossible to keep and collect crates and should instead be opened upon their discovery. All crates drop 4-6 items from their pool.
Slime Science Crates
Note: Only the Hunter Gordo, Crystal Gordo, all three Glass Desert gordos, and snared Gordos drop Slime Science crates.
Ornaments are decorative objects available over the course of 13 days in December that drop alongside a crate's normal drops.
- 1.2.0 - Fixed bug where Range Exchange crates would sometimes launch their contents aggressively on break.
- The contents of crates are only determined upon destruction, rather than upon generation. (Except the crates from Range Exchange)
- With the addition of v1.1.2 all crates drop one Ornament if opened between December 20th and January 1st, with the exception of the crates received from Range Exchange.
