Drop boxes, as well as gold / black boxes fall on each map at special points.

The following table shows the types of drop-zones and bonuses that are in the drop boxes.

Some of these drop boxes have the same effects as garage supplies, while others (like Crystal Boxes and Nuclear Energy) only drop in battles.

  • Drops remain on the map until someone takes them.
  • A drop (not gold boxes or containers) appears exactly 110s after it was previously picked up.
  • Drop boxes that appear with parachutes take 14 seconds to reach the ground.
  • The gold box falls exactly 10s after the “Gold box will be dropped soon” notification, and another does not drop at any specific time after it is taken.
  • At the end of a battle, all drop boxes disappear.
  • Drop zone indication can be turned off in the settings. This will not hide the gold box drop zone, however.
  • When a battle begins, initial drop boxes will all appear sometime within the first 120 seconds. (This does not apply to gold / black boxes)
