The Supply Drop is a Legendary Chest in Battle Royale. It includes High Tier Weapons, some consumables and a good amount of materials. Supply Drops will spawn high up in the sky, in the Eye of the Storm. They float down slowly with the help of balloon which can be attacked and destroyed, causing the drop to plummet to the ground and be accessed much faster.

Supply drops have existed since Season 0, and for many players have been a sought after way to obtain useful loot in the mid to end-game.

Current Loot Pool

Supply Drops grant 1 Epic or Legendary Weapon, along with its Ammunition Type. Additionally, 30 of Wood, Stone, and Metal will drop, alongside some consumables.

The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • Lots of players will try to collect the Supply Drop. Be cautious of your surroundings if you decide to try and get one. Protect yourself by building around you if needed. Or watch from a distance of somebody else attempting to loot, and be ready to ambush them if needed.
  • Supply Drops can be shot down instead of waiting for its descent. They have a balloon integrity, or it's balloon "health", so they will take some time to shoot down. Only shooting the balloon will have any effect.
  • If you have a sniper, you can use the drop as bait and snipe the target when they are trying to open the drop, or shortly after.
  • The Rail Gun and the Saucer's blast can quickly destroy the hot air balloon carrying a Supply Drop.
