What is in PUBG Mobile airdrop crates?
There are a number of high-quality weapons, attachments, and gear in airdrop crates.
Each drop will be different, but they will contain some of these items:
Weapons: M249, AWM, Mk14 EBR, OTs-14 Groza and AUG A3
Weapon attachments: 4x scope, 8x scope, 15x scope and silencers.
Gear: Level 3 Helmet, Level 3 Armour, Level 3 Backpack and Ghillie Suit
Medical supplies: Adrenaline Syringe and Medical Kit
You can't get all of these at once, but it is quite the haul if you can secure an airdrop. But how can you do that?
Tips & tricks to secure airdrops
LOCATION: If a crate drops on a roof it is better left alone
The most important thing to remember about airdrops is that timing is everything.
Keep an eye on the sky and watch for planes. If you see one and it drops nearby then get after it!
The crates usually take 10-15 seconds to land, and if it's been on the ground for a while it will be a beacon for other players.

Getting their late can not only be deadly, but if you do win your way to the crate it could be empty.
So if the airdrop is too far away, then just let others scrap it out for the loot and continue your hunting elsewhere.
Drive to survive
RACE AHEAD: A car will help you get to crates quicker
Using a car can be a godsend when it comes to getting to an airdrop.
Not only can you cover the ground to the crate much quicker, but it can provide cover while you loot and that all-important quick getaway before others arrive.
You should never go after a crate alone!
If you are going after an airdrop make sure to chase it down with your whole team.
