|Green signal smoke. Use to mark a location for an airdrop.|
—Information accurate as of: build 904.83
Supply Signals are throwable smoke grenades that are used to signal plans for a supply drop. They are not craftable.
When thrown, the grenade will emit purple smoke, and shortly after, a cargo plane will fly over and drop at least one airdrop package nearby where you dropped the grenade.
Supply Signals can be obtained from airdrops, barrels, crates, and helicopters.
- Be careful when using the Supply Signal in heavily populated servers, as this could attract unwanted attention from bandits and looters. When having dropped a Supply Signal, you should probably hide in a bush approximate to the signal, and wait some time even after the drop landed on the ground. Then carefully check the area around it.
- The supply crate will drop within a 5 chunk radius in any direction of where the signal is thrown, but never exactly where the signal is.
