Crab Boxes Basic Info
Each day you can get up to 3 crates and an additional crate after finishing and claiming your daily task.
There are 4 different crates each containing items for one equip slot.
They have 5 different possible predominant rarities and are as follows:
On top of this there are some possible other rarity effects which are:
Crab Box #1
Contains Haircuts and these have a couple unique colors only available for hair: Blond and Brown.
The contents of this crate are generally fetch the lowest prices but the more unique hair colors fetch the high values; Red, Blue, Green.
Some of these hairstyles are especially not worth as much due to their compatibility with hats.
The most useable hairstyle for meshing well with hats is Baldo as it removes almost all of your hair except for a small strand that is almost unnoticeable.
Crab Box #2
Contains hats as well as the unique rarer trait of YIKE.
Some of these hats are just items that sit on your head while others fit a lot more nicely on your characters head.
Crab Box #3
Contains all the facial equipable items.
These range from masks to a clown nose, there’s a lot of unique possibilities with these items.
Crab Box #4
These are all items that cover most of your foot except for the sandals (not the socks with sandals) those still show your feet.
Christmas Crab Box And Present
The Christmas Box was an event-exclusive item for Christmas where you could get holiday themed cosmetics like elf shoes and pumpkin heads.
The present was a gift given to all players that gave a random coloured Party Hat.
You get rags by discarding items you don't want and the rarity of the item depends on the amount of rags you get, Common gave 1, Uncommon 3, Rare 6 etc.
With 20 rags, you can make another Crab Box.
Items come in a few predominant rarities:
On top of this there are rarities for the colors that an item can have as well:
The rarities for the colors are:
Creme (Hair Exempt)
Blond (Hair only)
Brown (Hair only)
These items also have a rarity number that they are assigned based on their color and rarity.
Each rarity has a “weight” and shininess and branding can also add “weight”:
Common – 1
Uncommon – 2
Rare – 3
Extraordinary – 4
Legendary – 6
YIKE – 6
Shiny – 11 (TBD – not sure about shiny grade effects)
The item you have will always have a minimum of 2 rarity as they have both their predominant rarity and their color rarity values combined.
Ex. A Rare hat with Blue coloring would be a 5 rarity as it has values of 3 and 2 combined to 5.
These rarity values are indicative of exactly how rare each item is comparatively.
The exact calculations of drop rarity aren’t public but it can be assumed through the steam market the relative rarities
Common – 80%*
Uncommon – 16.5%*
Rare – 2.3%*
Extraordinary – 1%*
Legendary – 0.2%*
Common – 78%*
Uncommon – 17%*
Rare – 4%*
Note: * – Estimated from steam market listings.
My estimates are that it’s another 0.2% chance to get YIKE on top of whatever item you get if its available, and then another 0.04% chance for a shiny*
So I hope this helped explain things, If you liked the guide gimme an award or somethin. Maybe share this with your friends? Have a nice day regardless though and happy Crab Gaming!
