Just got a minigun from a "special" crate drop. (lvl. 27)

Recommended Posts

Sorry I can't take a pic, as doing a selfie makes whatever weapon is in your hand disappear. This was apparently a "special" crate drop. It warned the whole server hours before it dropped, (in-game time) and it was written in golden text. There were a couple of NPCs with LMGs guarding it, and I got full body armor, a minigun, 5k in cash, 5k RP, and 300 rounds in lmg ammo. Truly worth the effort of getting it. All the other crate drops give you like 1k RP and a single item, like 1 C4 stick, or a grenade and a few shotgun rounds.

 

Anyone else see a special crate drop yet?

No but i did a survival mission to lvl 10. When you do you can keep all the weapons you pick up untill you go to a new room. had auto shotty, machine gun, chain gun, rpg,grenade launcher. I f*ckign pwned some people when i got back to free roam. But it was on auto aim so it wasnt as fun. Wish i woulda been in free aim but its damn near impossible to do survival with free aim.

I would imagine so, I'm not sure what the requirements are though. One day Ron just called me up, and told me about crates being dropped all over San Andreas, and ever since I get a crate drop prompt like every hour or so, where a plane flies to a green circle, and drops off a crate. This is the first "special" crate I have seen however.

Forgot the name of the mission, but Trevor himself texts it to you. After you complete it, you get a call from Ron about the crate drops. Finally did the mission at level 37 and unlocked the drops.

I just got this crate drop, minigun, $6K and 5K RP. Had no idea it was one of the special ones as I was just in the area of Grapeseed exploring and just finished a gang attack and heard the beeping of the crate. I guess that's what the yellow smoke was for, the special crate.

What's the special crate drop rate? Does the number of players in a game affect it?

Sorry, but they really happen aalllll the time.

Why would you warn people about it? You need them to not know about it so you can get it.
