Crates are a type of in-game box containing other in-game items, each with a different drop rate. You can either win them from in-game events, claim one for free from the in-game store, or buy them for gold.

Since update 7.7.0, we have introduced a new type of crate in Nitro Nation, with improved mechanics and rewards.

  • They can contain rewards of many types: cash, jokers, suspension parts, upgrade kits, redraw/upgrade cards, customization coupons, boosters for the Underground Tournament and obviously blueprints and cars.

  • After opening a certain number of crates, you're guaranteed to get a car or a specific in-game item. For example: after 80 crates - S racing class car, after 160 crates - S1 racing class car. After opening 10 crates, you are guaranteed to receive a black joker.

  • If you get a duplicate of a car you already own from the crate, it will turn into a random black blueprint with 0 durability (for your current chosen car). 

  • Item drop rates can be viewed in the Store - "Crates" - "See what's inside". These drop rates may change with updates, so be sure to check them before purchasing a crate.

  • Car-specific items (such as blueprints) will be tied to your current in-game car at the moment the crate is opened, meaning you can’t use them on other cars. So if you buy 10 crates at once, all the blueprints dropped will be for the same car.

Some in-game events may still have old (basic, pro and elite) crates available as prizes. You can check their drop rates in this article section -
