Crates randomly spawn in specific spots in the wild. They can also be found in packs of 2 or 3 after you burst a Gordo. The spots are usually slightly hidden in the shadows, in tall grass, or in corners. When trading in the Range Exchange, the resources that you receive are also in a crate.
Crates despawn if not opened. As a result, it is impossible to keep and collect crates, and they should instead be opened upon their discovery.
Alongside 20-40 newbucks, those crates will also spawn 2-3 items from this item pool:
- Pink Slime
- Rock Slime
- Tabby Slime
- Phosphor Slime
- Gold Slime (although the chances of this happening are extremely rare)
Crates in the Indigo Quarry
Those crates are like the usual crates, but with the following items added to the pool.
Crates in the Moss Blanket
Like with crates in the Indigo Quarry, those crates are like the usual crates, but with the following items added to the pool.
Crates in the Ancient Ruins
Like with crates in the Moss Blanket, those crates are like the usual crates, but with the following items added to the pool.
Crates in the Glass Desert
Like with crates in the Ancient Ruins, those crates are like the usual crates, but with the following items added to the pool.
Range Exchange Crates
Those crates are special, as they immediately open upon hitting the ground, and contain items that you got by trading in the Range Exchange.
Gordo Snare Crates
Crates you get from Gordo Snares will be like crates from the place the original slime comes from (a Crystal Gordo would give you Indigo Quarry crates) and you'll also get a crate that always drops 3-4 Slime Science Resources.
- The contents of crates are only determined upon destruction, rather than upon generation. (Except the crates from Range Exchange)
