Supply Crate is a shipping container for an item or items of value.
In Deus Ex, supply crates always hold one item, and must be broken to retrieve the item inside. Crates can be destroyed by any weapon (excluding the stun prod, pepper gun and fire extinguisher), and many players who do not otherwise use them will keep melee weapons such as the Combat Knife or Dragon's Tooth Sword just for breaking crates.
There are 3 varieties of Supply crate:
- Combat, hold various kinds of ammo (but no weapons).
- General, hold equippable, like bioelectric cells and lockpicks.
- Medical, hold exclusively Medkits.
