The Ammocrate is a SENT to help supply ammo to you and your friends. It can hold primary ammo for any weapon. If you’re in need, equip the weapon you want ammo for and hold USE on the crate. Have a bunch of ammo you’re not going to use? Why not store it for your teammates by equipping the appropriate weapon and holding USE briefly on the crate. Want to see if you have enough ammo to survive the next zombie rush? Just tap USE on the crate to see how much ammo it has for your current weapon.
