Air Drops are random equipment drops from airplanes in BATTLEGROUNDS.
Air Drops are random equipment drops that come randomly timed during matches from passing C-130's which contain ammunition, weapons, equipment and other things. The planes can be heard well before they drop equipment, so as soon as the player hears the buzzing, they should look outside and try to spot the telltale parachute outlines. A red smoke effect will appear on the spot the air drop lands. With this in mind, other players are going to be looking for the Air Drop as well. This makes it both dangerous for ill-equipped players and a feeding ground for those who are well-equipped.
Air Drops can land in water, on roof tops and even within play area circle or near the rim of the non-play area circle. Airdrops can drop pretty much anything valuable, though they most often contain weapons and ammunition, which is sorely needed in most situations.

Custom Air Drop Items
Custom Air Drops are high valuable equipment drops (aka the 'Super Airdrop/Crate)' that can only be called in by a Flare gun.
How do I call in this custom Air Drop? Once you find a Flare gun, you have to fire the flare gun in the air and once done, you wait until the C-130 flies overhead and it drops the crate. The drop arrives as would any Airdrop crate would, but instead of dropping high weapons/gear at a low probability, like the normal randomly timed crates. It drops the high tier weapons/gear at a high probability. Which means, you can get a wide range of loot ranging from;
- AUG A3 and AWM with a suppressor.
- Groza and M24 with a suppressor and a Helmet level 3/Vest level 3.
- M249 and M24 with a suppressor and a Backpack (Level 3)/Vest level 3.
