PUBG Corp introduces two new loot crates despite slowed development on other features

While development might have slowed for certain features of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in favour of putting a stop to cheaters, it seems that loot crates are entirely unaffected. PUBG Corp has revealed that it has two new cosmetic crates lined up for testing today: The Militia Crate and the Fever Crate.

The Militia Crate contains map specific clothing, with players getting a chance at receiving an Erangel resistance force uniform or a Miramar frontiersman outfit. The crate will be slotted in the rotation among PUBG’s other crates, becoming the more common crate to drop with a rate of 40 percent in comparison to that of Desperado and Biker Crates dropping at 20 percent and the Survivor and Wanderer reducing to just a 10 percent drop.

Fever Crates add a little bit more into the mix, but they will also cost the player real money to open. The loot box itself is named after Disco Fever in the 1970s and houses outfits from both that era, as well as the ‘80s. Like other premium crates, the Fever Crate can be purchased with PUBG’s in-game currency, Battle Points (BP) while the Early Bird Keys must be bought with cash.

For the lucky few, Fever Crates can contain full sets similar to that of the Gamescom Invitational Crate, however it will be more common to receive just one item in the set per crate. PUBG Corp has continued its trend of transparency by releasing the drop rates of the items within each crate, which can be seen below:

Militia Crate drop rates:

  • Tank Top (Gray): 20%
  • Raglan T-shirt (Red/White): 20%
  • Polo Shirt (Pink): 20%
  • Vintage Polo Shirt: 20%
  • Military Shirt (Gray): 6.5%
  • Military Trousers (Black): 6.5%
  • Long Sleeved Turtleneck (Black): 3%
  • Utility Belt (Brown): 1.4%
  • Camo Tank Top (Red): 1.4%
  • Military Boots (Black): 0.4%
  • Battle Belt: 0.28%
  • Vintage Gas Mask: 0.28%
  • Leather Bootcut Pants: 0.08%
  • Military Jacket (Black): 0.05%
  • Military Cap (Black): 0.05%
  • Cowboy Hat (Brown): 0.028%
  • Faux Leather Jacket: 0.0128%
  • Cowboy Hat (White): 0.0128%
  • Military Skirt (Black): 0.0064%

Fever Crate drop rates:

  • Zest Turtleneck (White): 15%
  • School Shoes (Beige): 15%
  • Mesh Polo Shirt: 10%
  • Combat Gloves (Khaki): 10%
  • Checkered Shirt (Coral): 10%
  • Hi-top Canvas Sneakers (Pink): 10%
  • Retro Polo Shirt: 5%
  • Combat Pants (Coral): 5%
  • Zest Sunglasses: 4.5%
  • Zest Loafers with Socks: 4.5%
  • Denim Bootcut Pants: 4.5%
  • Zest Bootcut Pants: 2.5%
  • Zest Silk Scarf: 1.3%
  • Floral Retro Jacket: 1.3%
  • Zest Retro Jacket: 0.6%
  • Zest Denim Jacket: 0.32%
  • Cropped Corset: 0.32%
  • Zest Checkered Skirt: 0.16%

Both crates are live in the test servers as of today, 22nd February. Keys and BP will be given to testers to try them out, however nothing in the test servers will carry over to the ordinary live servers.

KitGuru Says: It will annoy many that features such as ping-based matchmaking have apparently been impacted by the effort placed into quelling cheaters while loot crates walk away unscathed. It does seem misguided, no matter how refreshing the new premium clothes are. How do you feel about the new loot crates?
