Pickup is the name given to the crates, barrels, etc. that contain powerups or explosives. In Carmageddon II, the crates haven't been 100% checked, so sometimes, one can find a powerup of one type on a pickup of another type. This can be specially noticed with extra and bonus APO slots.

C2Pickup peds.png Red crates with a white angry face normally contain pedestrian related powerups, like the pedestrian electro-bastard ray, and fat bastards.

C2Pickup bad.png Yellow crates with a white exclamation mark usually give a bad powerup, like Lunar gravity or jelly suspension.
C2Pickup goodY.png Yellow barrels with a white check normally have items inside, like the afterburner, but can also contain an instant handbrake.
C2Pickup goodG.png Grey trash cans with a white and red star usually contain powerups that relate to brutality and force, like solid granite car. Sometimes they contain brute items like the mine shitting ability.
C2Pickup misc.png Dark barrels with a white and red star don't contain specific powerups, and are sort of random, but most of the time, they feature powerups that don't fit in other categories. Sometimes, they have some slightly bad powerups like pinball mode.
C2Pickup explosive.png Red barrels with a black skull and crossbones are commonly mines and as such explode when touched.
  • APO pickups give an extra armour, power or offensive point or slot, and sometimes, it's something that increases all three of them.
    • As for points, yellow give one point, and silver give two.
    • For slots, yellow (bonus) give three, and blue (extra) give one slot.
