The Enclave crates appear to be brand new or very close to new in construction, unlike other crates and bins encountered throughout the wasteland. These containers seem to be airtight, and have internal hydraulic arms to open and close the crate. The hydraulics system would be perfect for maintaining a tight seal, preventing dust and grit from contaminating their delicate plasma weapons and power armor. On top of the crate are four cleats, most likely to be used while in a Vertibird's storage bay to secure crates while in flight. On the side a vent can be seen, which may be used to keep the contents cool or filter out dust. All Enclave crates are rectangular and have black strips of grip tape, the crates seemed to be made of some form of brushed aluminum or steel, though aluminum would be the more likely case due to its inherent light weight and heat resistance.
The Enclave crates can be broken up into these types, though in some areas there may be semi-unique crates with other names pertaining to their specific contents.
- Enclave crate - Contains various things, foods, ammunition, sometimes clothing, whatever odds and ends the deployment scavenges from wastelanders.
- Enclave medical crate - (Called first aid box in-game) Contains the same things an ordinary medkit would contain, but can also contain random food and has a slightly higher chance of containing purified water.
- Enclave ammo crate - (Called Ammunition box in game) An ammuntion box that looks like an Enclave crate. Contains random ammunition, more often than not it contains microfusion cells and energy cells.
- Enclave weapons case - (Called Gun Case in-game) Weapons crates may contain plasma pistols, plasma rifles, plasma grenades, pulse grenades, as well as laser rifles and laser pistols.
- Enclave grenade box - These are simply called "grenade box" in game, usually contains a couple plasma grenades and pulse grenades.
- Enclave footlocker - an footlocker that looks like an Enclave crate, usually contains caps though.
- Enclave power armor case - Simply called "armor case" One such crate can be found in Colonel Augustus Autumn's personal bedroom behind a photonic resonance field. These usually contain a single piece of advanced power armor Mk II.
These crates look identical to other crates but only exist in a few areas.
- Enclave locker - usually only titled locker, they use the same world model as lockers in Vaults. Enclave lockers may contain metal armor among other random items of apparel. Three of these can be found at Rockbreakers Last Gas.
- High-tech gun case
- Almost all of the Enclave auxiliary bases deployed into the Capital Wasteland will contain several of these crates. They can also be found in Raven Rock while escaping in The American Dream.
- Once the Enclave show up after completing The Waters of Life, the medical crates will start appearing at the Enclave checkpoints throughout the Capital Wasteland.
