Air drops are a feature in H1Z1. Players who have an airdrop ticket can call in an airdrop with it whenever they want in the core game, given that the server allows airdrops.

Airdrop Types[edit | edit source]

There are ten different care packages that the planes will drop, and some are more likely than others. They all have names and a specific set of items. These are only the initial changes to airdrops, but it's unclear what direction they might go.

Every crate, upon landing, explodes and spawns several zombies.

Controversy[edit | edit source]

There has been a lot of controversy over purchaseable airdrops. While it was made clear back in August 2014 that weapons and ammo would be in airdrops, it was also said that there would not be. This created a lot of confusion and frustration during launch. On January 17th, 2015, an apology was published on reddit in a news post by Adam Clegg (arclegger). The apology offers an explanation for the misunderstanding about weapons and ammo in airdrops and it is acknowledged that things were said that are untrue. However, it is true that you will not be able to buy guns or ammo from the Station Cash store.

In order to make things right, Sony Online Entertainment and Steam offered a no-questions-asked refund for anyone interested in one. The developers also changed airdrops so they're more difficult to get and more noticeable, maybe in hopes of attracting more players to them. It's uncertain how airdrops will change in the future.

Notes[edit | edit source]

On reddit, in a monetization post, they talked about the airdrop, which players can buy. It was discussed by the reddit members and John Smedley (SOE), that players probably will purchase these airdrops to add a little fun and carnage from time to time, rather than for the items inside.

There are also purchasable keys, needed from the Daybreak Cash store that open crates. These crates give players cosmetics, such as skins for shirts, pants and caps, or emotes.
