I think I've went after 15 of these throughout my time playing GTA: Online.  12 of them I've capture successfully but out of those twelve not a lot of players in the session either new of it (Think you have to unlock the Pickups first) or didn't know their full potential.

 

But yeah, its pretty save they give out the same thing.  But still great to grab them.

 

Here's a Tip.  Helicopter.

From my experience if you enter the green circle before the crate drops (or even place a waypoint in it) the crate will not drop... its best to wait a few hundred yards out before it drops. I must've collected about 20 green crates (got some kind of RP award for that) but only ever seen the orange crate countdown twice and never seen one drop. I wonder if public servers don't get them as much as private/crew servers as I mostly play public, the other night I saw one in a crew server within about 20minutes..

I got the notification and went to the location. The deadline came and went, no crate. I goaded a rando to attack me thinking the game required a sacrifice, but no such luck. I eventually left the area and never got the crate.

 

yeah if you go to the green mark where the crate should drop it dosent drop..i just wait in a buzzard until its confirmed dropped then go for it

they all give $1000 plus // 2000rp // 4 moletovs (i do crates al day these are bonus after the 3th) // minigun or granate launcher

 

might be different on lower lvl's i used to get the .50 heavy sniper too but since i have it because of rank , it no longer shows up

Had one glitch out saying it was going to drop (had a green circle in the drop zone) waited there and it never dropped :( I did have a fun 3 way war going on for it

That's the problem unfortunately; if you tamper with the area in the green vicinity, majority of the time it will not spawn, so if you want to pick it up ASAP, follow these steps;

- Find the green zone on the map.
- Travel towards the zone without setting a waypoint in it (set on relatively close to it)
- Do not enter the zone until it is dropped.
- Once dropped, kill the smugglers.
- Kill other opponents/make a worthy distance from other players to pick it up.
- Crack open the crate, take the loot.

So, I made it to one of the special crates and out-gunned the competition. so Im now the proud owner of a Minigun...however since Im not of the level for one, I can't buy Ammo for it. If it runs out of ammo will it dissapear? secondly, If I do a Survival and pick up Mini-gun ammo, will my minnigun disappear as they usually do when survival is over?

Same, level 107 here. I'm wondering if the special ones only show up after you have collected so many green ones. I think in my whole time playing I've collected maybe 5 green crates. I'm thinking maybe I need to start going after them more often. Hmmm.

I had one, 5k RP, $5k, minigun and full armor. I doubt they drop after you've collected a lot of normal ones, since I almost never collect them unless they drop close to me.

I've had it twice now although nobody else in session seemed to go for it. Got the same as you both times, can't remember what items of clothing though. Also got a health bar boost whatever that means, you can't see it in character skills.

I think you're referring to Max Health increase, which won't have been from the crate, just a coincidence.

 

Oh ok thanks mate. Is there any way to see it from the menu? Also how does it increase? I think it just increases as you level up maybe.

 

Max Health increases the same as your rank/level. It showed as 20/100 every rank from 20-29, and so on. I hope it maxes out at rank 100. :)

 

yes, i pretty much got the same thing as you

but i cant use the minigun in freeroam, only missions and survival

I picked up the special crate a couple of times and got the Minigun also, but I could use it in freeroam. Extremely fun to pull out on gankers ;)

 

It gives a T-shirt? Does it give to females?

 

Yes, I'm playing a female character and have this t-shirt. (You allso get a t-shirt for surviving wave 10 in survival)

5000$, 5000 rp but no minigun. I received a call from Ron maybe 2 days ago talking about the crates and then I saw them start to appear, level 128

I started getting the crates around rank 30.

I'm not nearly that level, but I am level 32, and I've never seen ANY crate drop.... of any kind...  wtf.  It's happened in the games I've played, and others have gotten the notification and all race to the spot, but I never see any notification, nor any map marker.

Level 46 now. Have yet to see an armored truck or crate online. But just started playing some invite only sessions and I get them constantly. Least 1 crate an hour and a truck probably every 30mins or so if I am covering a lot of ground driving.

I get it when my rank jumps up. 5000RP likely would have increased your rank, causing the health bump.

saw one earlier today and was going to go for it but there was already someone in the green drop zone so i didn't bother.

 

i did a bunch of crate drops and didn't have to pay for my minigun, RPG, or grenade launcher. each time i went to Ammonation to get them after the required level, it said i already owned them.

I don't believe the shirt exists. I've outlasted the Survivals and got the Special Crate. No shirt.

 

Edit: I stand corrected. I've seen both shirts.

I've gone with someone to a crate drop. We saw the smoke, killed a few guards and a player who showed up but the crate never appeared.

I tried for 1 a couple days ago and got killed just as I went to pick it up later that night I jumped into a private session and as soon as I jumped in the game said there would be a special crate drop in 10 game hours so I got to go after the crate all by myself I still got killed once by the mercenaries but I got the 5000 RP 9999 minigun rounds and five thousand dollars in cash
