Loot are rewards that are given out for beating a commander or achieving certain goals within the game.
All cars will start off with 1 weapon and 1 Special Item. Loot Drop Crates provide an opportunity to get additional items. Since the contents of the crates are random, you may be rewarded with items for different cars and multiple of the same item.
IMPORTANT: SUPERTRUCKS have pre-defined weapons that you can upgrade with Power Points. Loot Drops thus don't include any Supertruck weapons or upgrades.
There are three categories of items you can get from the crates.
They are Weapons, Special Items and Upgrades. Except for DRIVE cars, which all use the same Weapons/Special Items/Upgrades, all OVERDRIVE supercars will have their own car specific items. This means an Upgrade that is specifically for Skull cannot be used on any other supercar.
To learn more about how to use or the function of each of the items, go into the Garage, select the car with the items. Next select Upgrades or Items and then select the item you want to learn more about.
All cars will have 1 Weapon slot available at the beginning. In order to expand number of weapon slots, you must use an Upgrade that expands the number of available weapon slots. For example, if you equip Small Weapon Expansion Spark to Ground Shock, then the number of weapon slots will increase to 2.
All cars will have 1 Special Item slot available at the beginning. Similar to weapon slots, in order to expand the number of special items slots, you must use an Upgrade that expands the number of available Special Items slots. For example, if you equip Small Special Item Expansion Spark, then Ground Shocks number of Special Item slots will increase to 2.
You may only equip 1 of each type of Upgrade. For example if you have Small Special Item Expansion Spark and a Medium Special Item Expansion Spark, you can only equip one or the other.
In order to equip the upgrade, you must also have enough number of slots available for that upgrade. If you only have 1 slot available, but the upgrade you want to equip requires 2 or more slots, then you can either free up slots by removing other upgrades or obtain additional upgrade slots by leveling up your car.
