Now I have been searching a while now for an answer to this question. One particularly helpful site was this: LINK
However, all this site told me was that:
Mann Co. Supply Crates and other usable items drop on a separate timer, meaning that these items do not affect the interval between regular drops.
So, I followed a link to this site: LINK
However, I looked at the wikia page's contents, but there was nothing stated about the drop rate for crates. I am referring to different types of crates too, not just normal ones.
With the new update, Munitions crates #82 and #83 have been added into the game. Do these crates have a different drop rate compared to other crates. In addition, the Strongbox crate, #81, went 'rare' on the 27 of February. How rare is 'rare'? Salvage crate rare?
In other words, I would like to know how the drop rates for the following crates work:
- Standard Crate
- Series #81 – Mann Co. Strongbox Crate
- Summer, Fall etc. cooler Crates
- Salvage Crates: #30, #40, #50
