Ok ive been wondering about the crate drop system.

 

When the game notifys me that the crate is inbound, and i go to the green area marked on the map the crate never drops. This also happens when i move anywhere close to it.

 

How does the crate drop work?

No idea. However if you kill the goons before it drops I've noticed it won't drop

I read somewhere that it is supposed to work like this to stop people camping and just waiting for the crate.

By now I would think most people know that if you camp on the crate drop it will never come. Been that way from the beginning.

It's obviously to prevent people from camping at the common crate drop zones. Though it is kind of retarded when you're just driving around and a crate event happens right next to you, causing it to be a bogus drop.

I believe you're supposed to get on your knees and pray to the Crate Drop gods, then one will fall from the sky.

Ehh I think it's a bug in addition to the camp protection, in my experience many times a crate drop green zone would show on map but would never drop, even though my buddies in the session never approached it/came close to it.

If anyone was near it in the session then it bugs out.

Bugged. In public games they often will show up but never drop, and in invite/crew/freind/solo games they don't even appear at all for many players.

There is a minimum player limit as far as I've heard.

Heard similar, but only from players, and not from R*. Makes me wonder though, if that were true, how come it's not the same case for HPV and Armored Trucks?

True. I used to get occasional crate drops in Invite only by myself but they were seldom then and nothing now. As for Gruppe Sechs I haven't had any for a while now.

Get them occasionally when alone in invite/crew/freind sessions, but when one or more other people join, there are indeed more trucks. Still zero crates though.

I once spawned in the green circle, 2 seconds later the crate spawned infront of me. There was only 1 other person in the session. The goons only spawned after the crate landed
