The first part of the challenge allowing you to unlock Luke Skywalker’s Hoth Outfit (i.e. skin) is now live. This comes a week after patch 1.2 was deployed. We couldn’t be happier that this challenge begins right before the weekend. Please note that since this a multi-part challenge. The skin will only be available after you complete all parts of the challenge, not just this one.
The following instructions were also posted on the official forums
Starting today and continuing for the next two week you will find in-game challenges each weekend related to the Luke Hoth appearance. Completing all three challenges will unlock this appearance.
For this weekend’s challenge, you need to defeat 30 enemy soldiers in any multiplayer mode – with the exception of Jet Pack Cargo.
Completing this challenge will grant you a “cosmetic crate” which will grant credits & an emote or victory pose. You will receive the Hoth appearance for Luke only when you have completed the third week’s challenge.
Please note that due to a bug, some PC players were able to unlock the Luke Hoth appearance today in error.
Timed Challenge: One Helluva Fighter
The challenge requires you to eliminate 30 enemy soldiers for a cosmetics crate. According to some reports, this particular cosmetics crate will reward you with an emote and 500 credits. It’s worth pointing out that unlike other challenges, its duration is 16+ days so that gives you ample time to finish it.
Timed Challenge: Delusions of Grandeur
SWBFII returns to Heroes vs. Villains game mode. The challenge is pretty simple and only requires you to play 3 rounds of this particular game mode. “Delusions of Grandeur”, which is based on the famous Han Solo quote will reward you 1000 credits upon completion
Timed Challenge: Stop that cargo!
This challenge requires you to stop the cargo carrier once. In exchange, you will be rewarded 1000 credits for your effort. The last two challenges seem to be shifting towards objective-based goals vs. just playing a game mode. As always, you only have about 2 days to complete this challenge.
Timed Challenge: Special Delivery
This JetPack Cargo challenge asks you to pick up the cargo once. In exchange, you will receive 1000 credits. It’s a great way to make players focus on the objective in order to help out their team, instead of flying around trying to get more kills. Please note that the challenge is only available for a limited amount of time.
Timed Challenge: Jump into action
The challenge requires you to play 3 rounds of JetPack Cargo in order to receive 1000 credits. Please note that you need to complete this within 2 days in order to receive the credits.
Timed Challenge: Play 5 rounds of JetPack Cargo
Last week, we also received a similar challenge but with a different payout. It required you to play 5 rounds of JetPack Cargo in order to receive a trooper crate. We noticed that (at least our) rewards were pretty good compared to challenges in the past. It might indicate that DICE is actively looking into improving the rewards for challenges like these.
