Alongside being able to earn Star Card in Loot Crates in Star Wars Battlefront 2 you can also use Crafting Materials in the game to craft different cards for your characters.  These crafting materials are used to craft Star Cards that are currently locked for specific classes, hero characters, or vehicles.  Crafting materials can also be used to upgrade Star Cards that you currently own to make them more powerful.

Where do you get Crafting Parts

Like almost everything in Star Wars Battlefront 2, Crafting Materials come randomly in Loot Boxes, but there are also other ways to earn crafting parts.  The in-game challenge system features a number of items to complete that will earn you crafting parts.  Finding the hidden items in the story missions for Star Wars Battlefront 2 in single player will earn you Crafting Parts.  Multiple challenges in the Arcade Mode will earn you a small cache of Crafting Parts.  The same goes for challenges in the Multiplayer mode, as well as accomplishments made with Troopers, Heroes, and in Starfighters.  Check the Career Tab in the main menu to see exactly which challenges offer Crafting Parts as a reward for completion.  Once you’ve completed a challenge, make sure you go back in to collect your reward and the Crafting Parts will be added to your inventory.

How to Craft Star Cards

To craft Star Cards in Battlefront 2 you’ll want to head to the Collection tab within the game’s menu.  Tab to the class or hero that you would like to craft a Star Card for and then select it.  Under the Equip & Craft cards menu you’ll find three slots where cards can be used.  Select one of those slots and then you’ll be able to see a list of different Star Cards that can either be used if you already own them, or crafted if you don’t.  Hovering over a Star Card with a lock emblem on it will give you the option to craft the card if you have the available crafting parts.

The base price for crafting a Star Card if 40 Crafting Materials, but you can craft the base model for any of these cards at any time assuming you have the points available to do so.  These crafting rules apply to the normal classes like Assault, Heavy, Officer, and Specialist.  This also applies to the Enforcer and Aerial Star Cards, as well as Armor, Artillery, Speeder, Fighter, Interceptor, and Bomber Star Cards.  Hero Cards can also be crafted across the popular characters and hero vehicles.

Once you’ve used the crafting materials to craft the card you can then equip it onto a character.

How to Upgrade Star Cards with Crafting Materials

Aside from the loot boxes in Star Wars Battlefront 2 that offer powerful cards, you can also create some of your own by crafting them using the crafting materials that you earn in the game.  The process is similar to crafting a card for the first time, but this time you must already own the card and be appropriately leveled to perform the crafting operation.  Different cards will require that you be certain card level and a specific overall rank. Star Card upgrades through crafting come in multiple varieties, but the most powerful Epic Star Cards can only be crafted through a combination of upgrading star card level and overall rank.

What is Card Level

Your card level in Battlefront 2 is directly tied to how many cards you have for each class.  As you earn more cards your card level will increase.  Depending on the level of card you are trying to craft your card level will need to be at a certain rank.

What is Rank

Rank in Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a points system that has you leveling up as you play the game.  While there aren’t clear cut rewards for leveling up in Battlefront 2 like other games, ranking up allows you to use crafting parts to craft the most powerful Star Cards.  The points that you earn in each match will be shown to you after each round and will tell you how close you are to the next rank.  You can increase the number of points you earn by doing things like performing well in-game.
