The new Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops focus on cosmetic upgrades, but the weapons you get in them can give you more XP per match, which is an edge everyone can love. There is a new way that supply drops work, including a social aspect that has you opening the loot boxes in front of other player in the Headquarters.
We’ll walk through what you need to know and show you what it looks like to open Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops as well as help you learn how you can earn them faster. While there are Call of Duty Points coming to Call of Duty: WWII, right now you can’t buy these loot boxes, just earn them in the game.
What’s in Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops?
Currently you an only unlock weapon variants, double XP, and other cosmetic upgrades in Supply Drops. These come in common and up to Heroic variants that are the best of the best and also the rarest unlocks.
You will not find new Call of Duty: WWII guns in supply drops that change the stats or give you an edge that way. The weapon variants can give you an XP boost that will help you level up quicker along with the bonus XP that you can get.
How to Earn Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops
At the start, you can earn Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops while you are playing through the multiplayer settings. You can also get them from special promotions. One of the best ways to get supply drops is to go to the Orders area in Headquarters where Major Howard will give you daily contracts and weekly contracts.
You can complete all of these, you don’t need to choose just one like in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The daily drops are commons and the weekly ones are rare supply drops. this is an excellent way to earn more supply drops fast.
Another area you can earn them is at the end of the game. There are a few supply drops that will get passed out at the end of a match. There’s usually one, and sometimes a few, so keep your eye out. These seem to be random, and not something that is sent out based on your play in the match.
You also want to check out the Contracts area. Here is where you can purchase a contract. This allows you to complete a specific goal in a time period to earn supply drops.
In the contracts area, you will also see a Collections area that you need to pay attention to. Here you can see a collection of variants and options. You can buy the in game credit to get some of these, or you can see the cool rewards that you will want.
How to Claim Call of Duty: WWII Supply Drops
This is a social part of the game that is now Headquarters. You will need to go into there and then you call in a supply drop. Everyone nearby will see it, but no one can take your supply drop.
Press R2 or RT and then you can call in your Supply Drop. The drop will fall from the sky and open with a cool animation. You can then equip items right from this opening animation if you want to.
Buy if Call of Duty: WWII is Still Your Go to Game
This is still the go to boots on the ground version of Call of Duty, and even with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the way it makes sense to buy the Season Pass if you will play Call of Duty: WWII for most of 2018 and into 2019.
If you think you will buy all of the maps because you loved the first 8 months of Call of Duty: WWII or because you like the direction the game is going with each update, you should buy the Season Pass.
For gamers who are planning to play Call of Duty: WWII for a year, it doesn't make sense to wait and buy the DLC separately or even to skip one or two of them since that will limit the matchmaking as you get split into a smaller and smaller pool.
You save $10 over buying the DLC individually, you get a bonus and you may still need to wait a long time for a deal.
