Dead Drop UI

Dead Drops are bright yellow boxes found on Fortuna III. Factions give out jobs that require items to be stashed in these boxes. This can be several Grenades, a Heavy Mining Tool, or other items. After locating the bright yellow box at the location, the items have to be put into the box. Then, the 'deposit items' button has to be pressed for the items to be counted towards contract completion. If the contract requires multiple items to be stashed, they do not have to be stashed at the same time.

There are 8 Dead Drops on Bright Sands and 7 on Crescent Falls.
