In the game’s staging – that is, dwell testing – department, there are some updates to how seen supply drops are, as Shadowfrax explains within the clip under. “Many supply drops delivered between the in-game hours of 8pm and 7am will now have a big, rotating light on top and white lights on the bottom,” he notes – and there’s some footage supplying you with a good concept of what this’ll appear to be in observe to see.

These lights will keep switched on for “a while” after a supply drop hits the bottom to assist gamers find it in areas with dense foliage – although it’s value noting the siren gentle will solely be seen when you’re inside a sure distance of the field o’ goodies.
