To celebrate the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 release, Loot Crate, Activision and Treyarch teamed up on a special Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate bundle. This is packed with special call of duty gear that will outfit you to show off your love of the game at home and on the go.
While we saw the Fallout 4 Loot Crate arrive ahead of release, this special bundle is coming later this year to gamers who are already playing Call of Duty.
The Black Ops 3 Loot Crate will include a lot of limited edition gear for gamers to enjoy and we expect them to sell fast.
Here’s what you need to know about this special edition and how it can complement your Call of Duty experience.
What’s in The Black Ops 3 Loot Crate
We wish that we could show you a photo of the cool stuff in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate, but you will have to wait until one shows up on your door. The point of this type of sale is to offer something worth more than you pay, but to keep it a surprise.
We do know that there are 11 Call of Duty collectibles valued at over $175. But that’s about it. Here’s an idea of what you might see.
Sign up for alerts about the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate release to get teasers of what will be inside and what to expect.
Don’t Expect a Juggernog Surprise
Now that the game is already out, there are two things you shouldn’t expect in this special edition Call of Duty Loot Crate.
Don’t count on a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in the bundle. The odds are good that anyone willing to drop $100 on this bundle already has the game.
Second, don’t expect to find a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Juggernog mini-fridge in the Loot Crate. That was a special edition that is unlikely to see resurrection in the Loot Crate.
We did not see Loot Crate offer a Pip Boy after those special editions sold out.
Sign Up Now for the Black Ops 3 Loot Crate
You can sign up now for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate. This will not place a pre-order. It will alert you to when the special edition goes on sale so that you can get one.
Supplies will be limited for this special edition gear, so you’ll want to stay on top of the release. Once the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate sells out, you will not be able to get it from the source.
Black Ops 3 Loot Crate Release Date & Time
We don’t know the exact Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate release date and time, but if you sign up you will get an email letting you know when to order.
Based on past releases you can expect at least a day of warning for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate Pre-orders. These will come before the Black Ops 3 Loot Crate release date, which is when the crate lands on your doorstep.
Expect a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loot Crate release time around 12 PM Pacific, 3 PM Eastern. This is what we saw with the Fallout 4 Loot Crate and it means most users can try to order without staying up late.
Expect Black Ops 3 Loot Crate Order Issues
With a limited edition event like this you can expect a lot of users trying to order at the same time, which can lead to issues.
When trying to order the Fallout 4 Loot Crate one of our team ran into multiple issues and ended up with several orders processed. Thankfully Loot Crate sorted it out and only charged for and delivered one.
Expect a start time shortly after the announced time, a slow checkout process and possibly the need to repeat it.
