The contraband packages are small, rectangular-shaped packages that are beige in color, with pieces of blue tape attached to each one of their edges. Despite being called large contraband packages, they are surprisingly small in size – around the same size as an armor plate. They essentially just look like small cardboard boxes with blue edges

Their small size makes them very easy to miss. Therefore, you should take a close look at the image below and familiarize yourself with how they look before you start searching.

Where to Find the Contraband Packages?

To find the two Large Contraband Packages, head into the Hafid Port area. Almost all of the buildings, warehouses, and offices in this area have Contraband Packages inside them.

The first map location will lead you to a small office next to a UAV Tower. Once you’re inside this office, you’ll either find the package on the table or on the shelf.

The second map location will lead you to a house near the southwestern edge of the area. Once you’re inside the house, go up the stairs on your right then go inside the room to your left to find the package.

One thing to note is that the location of the Contraband Packages is slightly randomized. This means that they don’t spawn in the same spot every time. However, their spawn point is set within a small radius, so they usually don’t spawn too far away from their usual spawn point. 

Another thing to keep in mind is that you don’t need to find both packages in the same game. If you only manage to find one package, you can join a separate lobby/game to find the other package and complete the mission.
