Crates are objects randomly scattered throughout the Far, Far Range, and have the appearance of raggedy old wooden crates.
They can destroyed by sucking them up with the Vacpack (like how one does with a Largo) and then throwing them close against a wall. They will drop a variety of items when destroyed, which includes Food, Newbucks, Slimes, and rarely Gold Slimes.
They randomly respawn in specific locations on the map or spawn when a Gordo is fully fed. They can be hard to spot, or sometimes hidden up on high cliffs only accessible via the Jetpack. Crates eventually despawn if not opened, so it is recommended to open them if found, instead of dragging them back to The Ranch, as it is impossible to collect them.
