Crate (Red Alert 1)

From Command & Conquer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Crates in Red Alert 1 look like ordinary wooden cube-shaped boxes. In campaigns, they can be found quite often - directly placed on the ground, through destroying aPick-up truck, accomplishing a mission objective, or occasionally through capturing an enemy refinery. In skirmish and multiplayer modes, crates can also randomly be found floating on water. These can be picked up even with submerged units.

When picked up, a symbol will appear for a few seconds to indicate what is inside the crate.
