Crates spawn in any area of the caves. surrounded by 3 or more tiles or forcibly determined by level generation.
When they are damaged or opened (by pressing up + action while holding one), they are destroyed and leave a randomly selected Item in their place.
Crushing a Crate opens it; if the Crate contained an explosive item such as a Bomb Bag or a Jetpack, crushing causes an explosion. Unopened Crates that contain an explosive item can be ignited and even immersed in lava without exploding for as long as they remain unopened.
Crates cloned via the Clone Gun have a different item inside compared to the original crate.
When evaluating Crate contents during level generation, the game goes through the list of possible crate contents. From top to bottom, it rolls to see if the item will appear in the Crate. If the roll fails, it moves on to the next possible item and its associated odds of appearing.
For example, the process that a Crate containing a Powerpack goes through would be the following:
- Roll 1/10000 chance for Plasma Cannon; Failure.
- Roll 1/500 chance for Jetpack; Failure.
- Roll chances for Powerpack; Success, Crate will contain a Powerpack.
As the calculation involves rolling every single chance until success occurs, the odds do not necessarily represent the actual chance; a Bomb Bag's odds of appearing is 1/1, but as every other chance must be rolled prior, it actually has a chance of approximately 34.06% of appearing from a crate.
