Airdrops have been an integral part of the BGMI setup since the very beginning, especially in the fan favourite Erangel map. Airdrops, or more commonly known as drops, are big red cargo containers which are dropped randomly throughout the map via airplane. A crate will be thrown from the plane at some random point along its flight path, and a single, sizable parachute will slow its descent and it will ignite a red smoke flare for everyone to see, once it touches the ground.
These drops contain the most premium, rare and high-quality equipment in the game. The guns found in these airdrops are exclusive only to airdrops and cannot be looted like regular guns and equipment. Along with weapons, the drop also contains additional healing and protective equipment like medical kits which are used to regain 100 per cent health (unlike the first aid kit). It may also contain Level 3 helmets and vests, which offer the maximum protection amongst all other helmets and vests. If the player is lucky, he may even get his hands on the Ghillie suit, which is a piece of clothing which has the capability of completely camouflaging the player, away from the eyes of the enemy.
Listed below are the items which can be obtained via airdrop:
Level 3 backpack: This bag offers the highest storage at 270 points, highly essential to carry all the necessities
Level 3 helmet: Offers highest protection from headshots, highest level of helmets in the game.
Level 3 vest: Offers highest protection from body shots, highest level of vests in the game.
8x CQBSS Scope: The strongest scope available in the game, and pairing it with a sniper rifle can wreak havoc.
Suppressor: Highly useful for silencing the gunshot and keeping your location secure.
4x ACOG Scope : The third strongest scope in the game, useful with ARs or DP-28
Suppressor for Snipers: Used for silencing the noise of snipers, useful with high performance guns like M24 and AWM.
Medical Kit: Only equipment in the game which can fully heal the player from 0 hp to 100 hp.
Adrenaline syringe: Best booster in the game, can fill the entire booster bar in just one usage.
Ghillie Suit: A green coloured suit for camouflaging, perfect for hiding in the tall grass.
Groza: An AR which can fire at a very high rate and causes high damage to the enemy, uses 7.62 ammo.
MK14: An automatic sniper rifle which deals high damage at the cost of a slightly high recoil, uses 7.62 ammo.
Aug A3: An AR which shoots at a faster rate at a much lesser recoil than the M416, uses 5.56 ammo.
MG3: The only machine gun available in drops, shoots at an unbelievable rate and decimates the enemy, can be used in two modes, uses 7.62 ammo.
Lynx AMR: Newest gun in the game, deals the highest damage and also has the highest bullet speed.
AWM: Easily the most wanted gun in the game, a bolt-action sniper rifle which can kill an enemy with just one good shot, uses special 0.50 ammo.
