According to the Call of Duty wiki:

If a UAV or Counter-UAV is dropped, leave it for a teammate as this will award the "Share Package" XP bonus while having the exact same effect, as UAVs and Counter-UAVs apply to the whole team.

How do you know what the air-drop contains without taking it?

1 Answer 1


To expand on what Arda Xi said once the package lands it should show an arrow with an image inside. Here are most of the images that could show up in a care package:

It isn't included in the list below but another possible drop is an ammo resupply crate.

  1. alt text when this shows up the care package contains has a UAV

  2. alt text when this one shows up it is a counter UAV

  3. alt text this means the package contains a sentry gun
  4. alt text this is a predator missile in a box

  5. alt text this is a precision air strike

  6. alt text harrier strike anyone? (I'm not sure this is the right picture...)
  7. alt text attack helicopter is contained within
  8. alt text a pavelow
  9. alt text stealth bomber...
  10. alt text Chopper gunner (Better pick this one up)
  11. alt text Ac-130 controls in this box
  12. alt text EMP strike waiting in the box

Those are all the possibilities for a care package. All of this information and all of these pictures were gotten from the Call of Duty Wikia

  • Nice! I didn't notice the icon of the care package. I'm too excited when I get one and I try to get it quickly :-)

    This is totally helpful. I rarely get a chance to grab a care package, but I'll be on the lookout now.
