SWGoH: Double Drops

One of the regular events that you can enjoy in SWGoH is Double Drops, which allows players to earn double the rewards from specific activities

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (SWGoH) is an exciting mobile collective game which takes place in a cantina in a distant corner of the Star Wars Galaxy.

In this area, people of varying species compete in simulated holographic battles, which involve notable figures from the Star Wars franchise.

Double Drops

In addition to following the main story and procuring your favorite Star Wars Characters, you can enjoy numerous in-game events.

One of the events that you can enjoy is Double Drops, which is a limited-time activity that allows players to earn double the rewards from specific holotables in the game.

Players should note that the duration of this event, and the specific rewards, can vary. Sometimes this event will be for every reward from a certain holotable, while other times it will only be for specific rewards.

The latest Double Drop event formed part of the Extra Life Milestone Week, which began on Monday, 30 October 2023 and concluded on Friday, 3 November 2023.

Every day during the Extra Life Milestone event, players can enjoy a range of features, however, the Double Drop event only occurred on Friday, 3 November 2023.

The announcement did not reveal which nodes the Double Drop event featured, but according to YouTuber, Calvin Awesome, it was only for normal and fleet energy nodes.

To get as many drops as possible, Calvin recommends that players use a hoarding schedule.

Additionally, players must use their Crystal Refreshes very wisely during a Double Drop event to get as many rewards as possible.

Calvin advises that players save up their Crystals a few days before the Double Drop event takes place and use them all when it is active.

Extra Life Milestone Week

From Monday, 30 October 2023 to Friday, 3 November 2023, SWGoH players were able to enjoy several features to celebrate Extra Life Milestone Week. The features that gamers could enjoy were:

Hoarding Schedule

Although the latest Double Drops event is concluding soon, players can use Calvin Awesome’s hoarding schedule for future Double Drop events.

Keep in mind, though, that the next Double Drops event may differ from the previous one, so you may have to adjust the schedule.

The Hoarding Schedule for the most recent Double Drops event is as follows:

Energy Normal Fleet
Per Day 735 615
Loss 240 240
Hoard 495 405
Next Gain 255 165
Crystal Value per Day 212.5 137.5
Priority High Mid
Start Hoarding on Monday, 30 October 2023 Tuesday, 31 October 2023

When you hoard energy, you will stop the natural process of gaining energy. This will give players the appearance that they are losing or missing out on energy, but that is not the case.


As previously explained, the Double Drops event only applies on the LS, DS and Fleet Battles and not on all nodes in SWGoH.

Light Side Battles (LS) is a battles game mode which contains 9 maps that unlock at different player levels. Every map contains missions for both a Normal and a Hard difficulty setting.

Dark Side Battles function very similarly to Light Side Battles, but you can only use Dark Side units in this mode. Fleet Battles, on the other hand, contain 5 maps that unlock at different player levels.

Players can choose between Normal and Hard difficulties, but keep in mind that you can only use Ships to complete the nodes.

When is the following Double Drops event?

SWGoH generally reveals when an event will take place a few days before it becomes active, which makes it difficult to determine the exact dates of the next Double Drops event.

However, several players have mentioned that the game’s anniversary will take place near the end of November 2023 and that the Double Drop event will be activated on all nodes during that event.

To stay up to date with the anniversary event, we recommend that players check the official SWGoH website regularly.
