As some of you may have noticed, there some non-mission-related containers that can be found and opened during some missions types.
They can be interacted with while standing on any square around them. When "opened", the following loot message appears:
So far, I opened three of those containers, but they never contained anything. I digged through some other threads where those crates were mentioned, and while some people claim that they revovered some loot from them, I haven't found any evidence yet. Two sources mentioned recovering a "datapad".
Maybe this was some early loot mechanism, that was abandoned before the final release?
Does anyone have more information on this?
