Consuming the Crate
Upon consuming any regular crate (Ammo, Power Core or Health), the crate disappears and is replaced by a hologram in the same color, which will slowly recharge. Although their effects are different for each side, crates are shared between the Hunter and Scavengers. Once any one player interacts with the crate, no one can consume that Crate till it is fully recharged.
Scavengers and Crates
Like all resources, Crates are shared between all nearby Scavengers. Therefore Scavengers should try to wait for their teammates to come close, before consuming crates. Unused crates can be pinged using the Communications Key. Both used and unused crates can be marked by Scavengers by shooting any bolt at it or by certain perks. A marked crate will temporarily have a white outline, which is visible even through terrain. Every type of Crate has a unique shape, which allows Scavengers to identify the Crate, even through terrain.
Hunters and Crates
Hunters can shoot unused or recharging crates till they glow red to hack the crate. If a Scavenger consumes a hacked crate, they are revealed for several seconds, but will still receive the crate benefits. Having a shield will prevent the reveal.
The Golden Crate
The Golden Crate spawns in a random location, over the course of a game, accompanied by visual and audio queues when it spawns, when it is used and when the effect expires.
The Hunter will see the location of the Golden Crate regardless of where they are on the map. Any Scavenger within a certain, limited range, will also see the location in their HUD.
After consuming the Golden Crate a temporary buff is applied to either the Hunter or all Scavengers. The Golden Crate itself will disappear upon consumption, until the next Golden Crate event.
