Mann Co. Supply Crates are tool items obtainable only through the item drop system. They are shown as open-style wooden shipping crates, wrapped in chains held with a comically large padlock. Mann Co. Supply Crates can be opened with the use of a Mann Co. Supply Crate Key.

When a crate is opened, a five second timer ticks down, alongside a sound effect of chains jangling and wood creaking. The player will receive one of a set of items, which are listed in the crate's description and are dependent on its series. This item is announced to the server in a similar format to regular dropped Items. The crate and key are removed from the player's inventory and replaced with the uncrated item.

Note: Rare item statistics assume drop rates are equal regardless of series. Also assumes that the series of the crates are dropping in a uniform distribution.

In the crates you have a small chance to get a unusual hat

Crate-opening demonstration

Notes

  • As of the November 19, 2010 Patch, Series #1 and Series #2 crates no longer drop in game. People with Series 1 and 2 crates still have the attributes set to 1 and 2, but they take on the schema ID of Series 3 and 4 crates, respectively.

Trivia

  • Although Valve modeled the padlocked chain for the icon, the padlocked box can't be found in the game files; its textures, however, can be found. The crate itself uses a model that appears to be the same as models/props_hydro/barrel_crate_half.mdl .
  • In the TF2 Mac update trailer, you can clearly see a RED Soldier rifling through a crate of hats, hinting at the existence of crates before the Mann-Conomy Update.
  • While Mann Co. crates are obtained through the item drop system they do not add to the total cap of items you can obtain each week.[1]
  • it has been said that crates can be crafted after the next big update, no one has currently found any combination yet.
  • In the sandbox building game Minecraft's Beta update 1.4, Mann Co. crates were parodied in the form of the Locked Chest (or Steve Co. Supply Crates), which displays a similar message and prompt when clicking a Mann Co. crate to the Minecraft Store, a fake gag store.
  • In-game,series 9 crates would say they had hats, pink as hell and a rare item, however most of the people that opened the crates got paint that wasn't on the list of items and wasn't rare at all.
