Sledgehammer Games left us an unexpected teaser in one of their blog posts on their site…an image of what appears to be a Supply Drop with the phrase “Open this Side Up.”

HammerWeekCarousel

We’re not sure what this is, but we think that it has something to do with Supply Drops; these were mentioned in the official description of the Collector’s Edition. Supply Drops gives access to new customization content, weapons, and more in Multiplayer.

What do you guys think it is?

  • MrJDGuns1

    This could be the new supply drop things we keep hearing about.

    • Mitch

      I was thinking the same.

      • MrJDGuns1

        it seems like the most logical thing as. I don’t really care what the care package looks like. I think they would show us something completely new.

    • Xander

      Maybe the supply drops work similar to Counter strikes crates(user created skins etc etc). Except you have 5 free keys?

      • MrJDGuns1

        I’m gonna say they are more like BF battlepacks. CS crates seem less likely as this would take away the point of micro transactions.

        • Xander

          That’s what I mean though, in CS you have to buy keys to open them. So maybe it’s access to 5 of them free of charge. Idk it’s got me interested in any case

          • MrJDGuns1

            Yeah forgot about that. They could make a TON of money off of people buying keys.

        • Cristiano Ronaldo

          The BF4 Battlepacks were horrible since you got the stuff randomly which means that you need to play forever just to get a single attachment that you want. Hopefully Supply Drops arent as bad as the Battlepacks.

          • MrJDGuns1

            But if you used a gun enough you would get that attachment.

          • Xecho

            Yea which makes sense buddy

        • Grigori

          What are battlepacks?

          • NextGenNose

            They’re like briefcases in BF that will reward you with random optic sights, camos, dog tags, etc upon opening.

          • Grigori

            Like a mysterybox for attachments, camos and streaks?

          • NextGenNose

            Who knows. We’ll just have to wait and see πŸ™‚

          • jordanxbrookes

            They’re rewards you get in Battlefield 4 that feature camos, weapons, attachments, double xp etc.

    Loot Crate! For November there’s an Advanced Warfare theme to it πŸ˜€

    • Suu

      What kinda worries me is like if you need to buy these supply drops through micro transactions.

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    Probably a tease for one of the editions?? 0.0 lets see.

    Bo was Rcxd
    Mw3 was idk
    Bo2 quad
    Ghosts idk
    AW unknown

    Not a fan of IW sorry.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Collector’s Editions have already been announced: http://t.co/unJOP9D4ju

      • jordanxbrookes

        Plus it’s cheaper than previous years because of no ‘gadget/toy’ bundled with them.

        • Will WilFredo Mendoza

          Yea I just saw, my jaw dropped! So excited for this!

      • Will WilFredo Mendoza

        WHAT!!!!! How the hell did I miss that article??? >,< sorry

    • guest

      MW2 started it with night vision goggles…

      • Will WilFredo Mendoza

        Ah yes, that was actually my fave IW Edition! How could i forget that. Thanks πŸ™‚

      • jordanxbrookes

        Night Vision FTW! Boy does that bring me back to the days of Call of Duty 4.

  • Raptor

    It’d be cool if you could only open it if the side that says “Open this side up” is the side facing upwards, but then again it’d be dumb at the same time

    • Yeah, there would be so much hate if it landed upside down, and you saw that it was some high-level killstreak. πŸ˜›

    • Just give an option like: “Hold β–  to flip”, like in halo where you flip your vehicles upright.

  • Bigi345

    Can we have a new animation, where the guy actually OPENS the CRATE? Wouldn’t be that hard to make wouldn’t it?

    • Raptor

      It probably wouldn’t be hard, it just would probably be hard to make the thing INSIDE of it look normal, for example, dogs…are they gonna put a dog in it?

      • Bigi345

        But they give you a button to call the dogs instead of the actual dogs in the care package. Which makes no sense but whatever

      • A blitz portal is inside of it and the dog(s) jump out of it! Lol

      • Cristiano Ronaldo

        No dogs please. They wouldnt even fit in the setting imo.

        • Raptor

          It was just an example πŸ™ </3

        • Daniel

          Really? πŸ˜€

      • Aymen Skiken

        it’ll be a robodog

      • They could probably make the radio called in streaks, a small walkie, in a box half the size of normal crates. You flip the box upright, punch the locking clamp, and take out the walkie. Takes about 2 seconds.

  • That looks sick!

  • Rob Schneider

    Could be to show how much they care (package) about this game πŸ™‚

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    Care package and emergency airdrop were cool killstreaks back in MW2.

  • Sadat Kasaija

    I’d say it’s more likely for the recently announced editions of the game similar to BO2’s care package but i doubt they’re showing what the care package from the game looks like but who knows. Also i don’t much care for care packages in the game and no pun was intended.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Loved the pun haha.

      • Sadat Kasaija

        Haha cheers.

  • Mitch

    Michael Condray just hinted that it isn’t a Care Package
    https://twitter.com/MichaelCondrey/status/494619893787279360

    • MrJDGuns1

      this is defiantly the supply drop thing because the post linked in the article talks about supply drops.

      • Mitch

        Yeah. My guess is that Supply Drops will be similar to Battlefield 4’s Battlepacks.

        • MrJDGuns1

          I hope though that this doesn’t have camos in it. As I enjoy the grind of unlocking camos. Not just luck.

          • Mitch

            They could do both. Start with 10 camouflages you can unlock and 10 you can get through supply drops.

          • MrJDGuns1

            and the supply drop one’s are kind of crazy.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Just like what I said in one of my videos haha.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Damn I was going to post that link haha, but yes, 2 POINTS TO THE CHARLIEINTEL TEAM!

    • XLKILLA

      It’s not a care package like other cod. It’s a supply drop

    • Anthony

      It’s already been said in the preorder packages that you will get supply drops which provide character customization.

  • Batman

    This game looks too much like a BO2.5 Im worried.

    BO2 could have been so much better

    • MrJDGuns1

      Explain please?

      • jordanxbrookes

        The medal ‘Skeet Shooter’ definitely is like the medals in Black Ops 2, not that that is an issue, just wish it would be ‘different’ and not similar.

        • MrJDGuns1

          I enjoyed the medals it was an easy way to track the history of the things you did in black ops 2 Multiplayer.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know, I’m just saying it’s similar.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            There is nothing wrong with similar, BO2 medals were brilliant and as long as AW can make it their own by changing the design it’s fine with me. The Skeet Shooter medal looks great.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know there’s nothing wrong, but I’d rather they be original when it comes to medals.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            What do you mean by original? Skeet Shooter medal seems new and original to me and wasn’t in BO2.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’m talking about the look of it. Whilst ‘Skeet Shooter’ is a new medal, the medal looks like it was from Black Ops 2, with a very similar colour design.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            True, there is no doubt that it looks like its from BO2 but the thing is BO2 got it right with those medals and I’m glad AW realise that too and are taking it on board even if its very similar.

            The medals look sleek as fuck and are actually pretty informative.

        • iAmEFFeX

          It’s a good throw back to MW3 too where we had all the different medals for random achievements. That was one of my biggest issues with Ghosts, there was no excitement throughout the match. I love getting the recognition as you do something exciting.

    • Nick Muller

      Bo2 was an amazing cod !

  • Hopefully care packages as a scorestreak will return. I missed them in Ghosts. It sucked having to do this sometimes hard field order, just to get a SAT-Com. I thing BO2 did great with balancing scorestreaks. Unlike Ghosts with the Helo Pilot that shots through the fucking roof. But I miss having my UAV, Care package, and stealth chopper in BO2, and getting hem twice a match.

  • jordanxbrookes

    According to Ali-A, these Supply Drops give you a random in-game item.

    • MrJDGuns1

      This is probably a guess as he had no legitimate information.

      • Yeah he does. He went to play the game a couple of days ago.

        • MrJDGuns1

          proof?

          • OH, nvm it was TmarTn that went. Theyare the same people to me πŸ˜›

      • jordanxbrookes

        I know but he does have connections with the team, plus YouTubers are starting to visit SHGames Studio and see and play Advanced Warfare, TmarTn already visited them a few days ago.

        • MrJDGuns1

          Yeah I know about TmarTn but I don’t know about Ali-A.

        • iAmEFFeX

          Ali A is just speculating. If he knew this as a fact and was told through “connections”, he’d have to sign a no disclosure agreement. So, even if he was playing dumb and pretending he doesn’t know for sure, he still couldn’t say it. I think he’s just as excited as everyone else and throwing around ideas.

    • Keshav Bhat

      He’s guessing as well.

      • jordanxbrookes

        He could be, but maybe he’s asking people to get their opinion so SHGames might change it up for the final build? Who knows.

    • Cristiano Ronaldo

      Then there better be enough weapons and stuff this time. CoD is no Battlefield, but there should be more weapons by now.

      • jordanxbrookes

        More weapons is a YES! from me, I loved the variety of weapons that were in MW3.

        • jasonxbrookes

          Agreed. I also hope Character customization is better than it was in Ghosts. (at least for headgear)

          • jordanxbrookes

            It should be. I want to have a yellow and black exo-suit to fit my logo πŸ™‚

          • jasonxbrookes

            I’m on the hype train after the most recent trailer. Waiting for the PS Store to have the Digital Pro Edition available for Pre-order…:P I’m such a sucker for exclusive content. (Red and white Atlas Exo Suit sounds amazing)

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’m gonna pre-order the Atlas Pro Edition tomorrow from GAME UK, only Β£99 πŸ™‚

          • Run N Gunning Camper

            But yellow is not good for camping. =D

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yellow is good for blending into a banana πŸ˜€

        • Cristiano Ronaldo

          Idk, but MW3 didnt had much more weapons either.

          • jordanxbrookes

            They had 6 Shotguns, 6 Snipers and more, the variety was awesome.

          • Cristiano Ronaldo

            6 Snipers and 6 Shotguns. The other 4 weapons were unusable.
            It needs more Bolt Actions though.

  • Leroyjenkinsnh52

    Does anybody know if there will be split screen online on 360 didn’t know if would be taken out on 360 cuz of graphics

    • Xecho

      it porbablly will stay no one knows about the high moons version at all yet

    • Aymen Skiken

      HDMI ?

  • Run N Gunning Camper

    It could be a new and re-designed Scavenger loot bag.

    • jordanxbrookes

      In the Destiny Beta, you could get special ammo from random crates on the map, maybe it’s similar to that?

      • Run N Gunning Camper

        It could be. We are speculating at this point.

        I want to see the full MP reveal. I’m still more hyped with Destiny than AW.

        • Freeze

          that is from the limited edition

          • jordanxbrookes

            πŸ˜›

  • NextGenNose

    Hope they’ll be an actual killstreak/scorestreak and not a “field order reward”

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      They’ll be like Battlepacks I think.

      • NextGenNose

        Yea, I later noticed that these will indeed work similar to the Battlepack briefcases in BF, where you can get camos, optics, etc. upon opening.

        I still want my Care package kill/scorestreak for the lulz

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          They’ll probably replace the shitty camos with something that’s even better, like this.

        • UpRiftCOD

          It would be cool if they give out keys after each match randomly, or maybe the would drop during a match and every one would race for it.

          • NextGenNose

            Could be a way we unlock stuff in this game, just like how Ghosts revolved around squad points. We’ll just have to wait and see.

            Only 10 days, 15 hours and 32 minutes left!

    • Peyton Barnes

      personally i want field orders so i can play as micheal myers but in the care packages if they have em even if they dont i want field orders knock on wood they have them

  • Freeze

    Just to clarify:
    Five (5) Bonus Supply Drops: Be prepared for battle as soon as you boot up with five bonus supply drops, which unlock a variety of in-game content from player customization gear to weapons.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      AKA Battlepacks. Good idea.

      • Freeze

        That what it is, check the limited edition

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Uh huh. We’ve been on the same page.

          • Freeze

            Oh well you said good idea :3

  • Alexander Thomas

    i think this is what you get when it say you get 5 bonus supply drops in the special editions (digital pro and atlas pro)

    • Ryumoau

      yep πŸ™‚

  • David Sync

    Can we get custom exos? Like getting ur emblem on ur shoulder,or maybe a camo

    • Black

      It’s unclear whether you choose an eco that already has a skin, or whether you snap on it the skin you want.

  • | Coop X

    so yeah if this is a reward for leveling up then it would be copying CSGO and Battlefields battle packs.

    • Xecho

      oh well

      • | Coop X

        well kinda low of them to do so…copy and paste. but idc, I cant wait to get the 120$ version and play on pipeline!

  • Suu

    “I feel like you unlock these as you level up, or I dunno doing certain things with weapons and it gives you a random etc. (attatchment, camo, weapon, patch) which sounds like a fun way to do it.”

  • Suu

    “You know what I really hope though? That people don’t start modding and hacking at all, not early not never, cause it ruins the fun for other people just cause they can’t do good on normal means or what ever reason.”

  • Ryumoau

    it looks awesome. i like this a new way of unlocking new customization items in multiplayer. πŸ™‚

  • Furious_kid

    I think it can be a cool Kill streak, as soon as the box gets dropped on the ground, it’ll open and drones will come out and kill nearby enemies.

  • Tim Lopes

    Sooo… If anyone has played mass effect 3 multiplayer, you gain money to buy creates. For example, 5000 points could give you one item, 20000 will give you a large create that has 5 items. There were also creates worth 99000 which gave you 5 powerful items, one was for characters, the other for guns. Maybe it is something not in the game, but maybe you are rewarded it after a game or for challenges and they contain random guns or unlocks for your character. If this is try, I hope they have a lot of new items available, it would be boring to keep on getting the same thing over and over again.

  • Black

    I hope they are not battlepacks, I hate the randomness of those.
    If it’s the case, don’t make it about attachments (like the coyote sight of BF4), but only about weapon skins and knives/melee items.

  • Guywithbrains

    That would be nice looking care package. I still think that it has the same idea with battlepacks. Although I hope that it doesn’t give us random sights to locked weapons like BF4.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Ikr, congrats you unlocked this cool sight on a weapon that you haven’t even unlocked, are you mad soldier?

  • Daniel M

    This game is one of the few that gets me really hyped and i’ve been playing everyone since Cod4 ily cod xoxo πŸ˜‰ u guys can call me a fangurl i ya like

  • LovekillerX

    These supply drops reminds me of battlepacks in Battlefield 4. I really hope that we get some cool unlocks to weapons which we have already unlocked. But I don’t want too many supply drops because I also want to do a lot of work to unlock new weapon just like in before Call of Duty games. Game gets easy really boring if you open all stuff in couple of days.

  • Reminds me of Battlepacks from Battlefield 4:O!

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    I guarantee you that the community will fuck this game up. I hope not.

    • Aymen Skiken

      of course it will cuz cod’s community is the worst after all.

      • Nytro Factor

        Sorry but battlefield has the most toxic community of them all.

        • Grenaider

          League of Legends has the most toxic community, bar none.

            Players from Poland… ’nuff said.

        • Aymen Skiken

          cod community : campers , noobtubers, hackers, lmg…

          • jooker-jr

            And th worst people on forms.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        That’s why people should have second thoughts about buying this game, this could be the best game ever, and it’d still get ruined by little kids.

  • Kill Denied

    The best way to be innovative is to borrow ideas from other video games.

    • Grenaider

      Ain’t it a great thing? All games in some way, shape, or form are all inspired by each other and things we see in daily life

  • TADPOLE

    I think it’s like a Battlepack in BF4, containing customisation items, attachments, maybe even weapons

  • Stealth_Valtsu

    Battlepacks 2.0

  • Abd3l4l

    i think it will be something like Battlefield’s 4 Battlepacks.

  • Abd3l4l

    I think it will be something like Battlefield’s 4 Battlepack.”which unlock a variety of in-game content from player customization gear to weapons.” Is exactly what the battle pack does in BF4.

  • George Claude

    please dont have care packages except in a gamemode (e.g dropzone). I hate the idea of a noob getting a powerful killstreak out of luck.

    • CinemaSins

      Care Packages are amazing

  • Michael

    I think the supply drops are probably gonna be similar to bf4’s battlebacks that give you double xp, weapon attachments, custom emblems, etc.

  • IceKoldKilla

    I’m thinking it’s like Battle Packs in Battlefield 4. But I doubt Advanced Warfare will have anything near the amount of weapons, gear, gadgets BF4 has. Unless it only gives you 1-2 things instead of 5 or so like in BF4. Hopefully this game is really epic. I want that excitement when I played CoD 2, CoD 3, CoD4 and WaW. After that it was down hill. BO made me play a bit more for a while. BO2 as well but MW2, MW3 and Ghosts haven’t had me playing a year after it’s launch. It dies out for me after 4-5 months. I always keep playing because I wanna have the highest Prestige in all (so far I have except Ghosts). To be honest, it’s been the same core game so it’s normal for me to get tired of it fast. Someone “new” to it that only started with BO2 for example is probably more excited each year. And I wanna make it clear, I’m not saying after WaW it was shit. Just saying it kept the core game the same so naturally someone playing since CoD since 2003 is bound to get tired along the way.

    • jooker-jr

      One more year makes a big difference.

  • Peyton Barnes

    This is going to be awesome but there better the freaking UAV

  • Adam

    It’s CoD’s answer to Battlefield’s Battlepacks….. end of

  • Adam

    So basically like Battlepacks?

  • Suu

    “I heard an idea earlier where a supply drop randomly falls onto the map and whoever gets to it first gets the customization item, that sounds like a neat idea.”

  • ankakalle

    So microtransactions?
