Emergency Airdrop is similar to Care Package, with the key difference being that Emergency Airdrop drops four crates instead of just one, and requires a killstreak of eight (seven if Hardline is used) instead of four. It also has a greater chance of dropping rewards with higher kill requirements, and it takes considerably longer to reach the smoke grenade and drop its crates.
Calling in an Emergency Airdrop sends in a cargo plane, which does not stop when it drops the crates. Because of this, crates can be spaced very far apart. Many players find themselves with some or even all of their rewards in unreachable areas if they are not careful.
The cargo plane that is used in the drop is interesting, as the developers of the game were supposed to use the C-130 model, however, it is actually an AC-130 that drops the packages.
When the player calls in a Emergency Airdrop, the first crate will be dropped in the red smoke; not all four crates spread with the red smoke in the middle, possibly causing one or several to end up in inaccessible areas.
Calling in an Emergency Airdrop will reward the player with 250 XP.
The Emergency Airdrop returns in Call of Duty: WWII as a multiplayer scorstreak. The player calls in the Emergency Airdrop with 1000 score. It airdrops four Care Packages by parachutes. Players can shoot down parachutes causing the Care Packages to drop instantly.
