How To Find Hidden Crates

After playing a couple of missions in Aliens: Fireteam Elite, you may have noticed that you failed to find a Hidden Create in a certain level. What are these crates and how do you find them?

Well, the hidden crates in Alien: Fireteam Elite are special boxes that appear in random locations that award you some really good items. Similar to the reward you get from completing a mission, you can obtain weapon attachments, skins and lots of other great items. Keeping an eye out for these is essential if you want to get a more powerful loadout.

What Do Hidden Crates Look Like?

Hidden crates look a lot like regular crates that you find along with ammo boxes and health packs. The only difference is that they will be red instead of white.

Here you can see a hidden crate. They are rather easy to find when you know what to look for. It will just require you to search around a little more when you play through the missions.

Once you open one, other players on the team will be alerted. This makes it a lot easier to find these crates when you are playing with friends. Even though they are never that well hidden, a few extra pairs of eyes in each level will help increase the odds that you will find them more often.
