Call of Duty: World at War
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Ammo crates can be found throughout the campaign in all missions played in U.S. (see below), in "Loose Ends" and the bonus mission, Museum. They give the player ammo, up to the absolute full count. This also includes stun, flash, smoke, and frag grenades. The ammo crate will also replenish used ammunition currently in the magazine.
An Ammo Crate can be obtained from either the Care Package or the Emergency Airdrop killstreak rewards. It is not unlockable from the killstreak menu. There is around a 14% chance of getting an ammo crate from a care package and a 40% chance of getting an ammo crate as one of the four emergency airdrop packages. The Ammo Crate gives max ammo for both guns and refills equipment and special grenades. The pickup symbol for the ammo crate is the word AMMO on top of an upside down triangle.
Although the Ammo crate fully replenishes all ammo and equipment, it is the least useful item to receive from a care package. It is justifiably seen as a symbol of bad luck, as well as a rip-off considering how much it took to earn the care package. Adding further to its uselessness is the fact that no bonus Share Package XP is given should a teammate take the crate. In the end, the Ammo crate should best be used by a teammate needing ammo the most, and should there not be a need to resupply by any teammates, the crate should be used as a trap to lure enemy players who attempt to steal it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Despite the Care Package requiring five kill streak, Resupply is once again a possible care package outcome, this time with the symbol resembling that of a magazine (crescent-shaped). It is basically the same as in the previous games.
Many users frown on the Ammo package, but it can be extremely useful and even life saving if a user is running low on ammo. The Ammo package provides an alternative to Scavenger, which does not tie up a perk slot, and is even better in that it resupplies all weapons/equipment fully, whereas Scavenger has limitations.
It can be quite useful if the player is low on ammo with no enemy weapons on the ground nearby, or it can be used to unlock Hardline Pro; one of the challenges to unlock it is to share 10 care packages with teammates, making the Resupply ideal to meet this goal. In addition, with Hardline Pro a resupply can be changed to something else by double tapping X. In addition, players do receive a Share Package XP bonus for sharing Resupply crates.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Ammo crates returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. In campaign mode, they appear in the missions "Black Tuesday", "Goalpost", "Bag and Drag", and "Down the Rabbit Hole". As always, they provide a full refill on the player's currently-obtained weapons and restocks on grenades like Frags and 9-Bangs.
Ammo crates appear in Special Ops Mission Mode. In missions based off of campaign missions, ammo crates can be found in the same general locations as the campaign mission. However, usually, there will be additional crates throughout the level. In addition, some missions, like "Toxic Paradise", "Invisible Threat", and "Flood the Market" have additional ammo crates that appear in co-op.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Ammo Crates are available in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II campaign, appearing in every level except for Strike Force levels. The levels "Fallen Angel", "Karma", and "Odysseus" have one ammo crate. The levels "Suffer With Me", "Cordis Die" and "Judgement Day" has two, while the levels "Time and Fate" and "Achilles' Veil" have three. The levels "Pyrrhic Victory" and "Celerium" have five ammo crates. Last, "Old Wounds" has the most at eight ammo crates.

- It is possible to obtain two (or potentially four, as is the case with C4) of any equipment in Black Ops, provided the starting equipment is already deployed. However, if one attempts to pick up their deployed equipment, it will simply disappear. This is not possible in any other way.
- In "Wolverines!", they are flown in and dropped via parachute. This may be another reference to the movie Red Dawn.
- Ammo crates do not refill Claymores or C4.
- When refilling ammo for an Akimbo weapon, the left-handed weapon's magazine will not fill up.
- The crate model appears in the Rangers and Delta Force campaigns. In Estate Takedown and Loose Ends, they appear as shelved boxes of ammunition.
