There are many different types of Star Cards in Battlefront 2 that you can equip for the different character classes, heroes, and ships in the game. So how do you get Star Cards in Battlefront 2?
To get Star Cards in Battlefront 2 you’ll need to get Crates. These crates come in different types and can contain different things depending on which ones you purchase.

There are also three other types of crates that you can purchase with credits that you earn in the game. These include Trooper Crates, Starfighter Crates, and Hero Crates. As their names specify, each different type of crate will give you a chance to earn Star Cards for different units in the game.
Trooper Crates currently cost 4,000 Credits and they can contain 1 or 2 Star Cards for your Trooper classes. Alongside this base requirement for the Trooper Crate they can also contain Hero Star Cards, Starfighter Star Cards, Special Star Cards, Vehicle Star Cards, Poses, Emotes, Weapons, and Crafting Parts.
Starfighter Crates currently cost 2,400 Credits and they can contain 1 or 2 Star Cards for Starfighters. Alongside these cards they can also contain Trooper Star Cards, Hero Star Cards, Special Star Cards, Vehicle Star Cards, Poses, Emotes, Weapons, and Crafting Parts.
Hero Crates currently cost 2,200 Credits and they can contain 1 or 2 Star Cards for Heroes. Like the other crates, these crates can also contain other items.

There are also a number of different challenges in the game that can be viewed in the “Career” tab for Star Wars Battlefront 2. Depending on which class you use, there are different challenges that you can complete to earn Crates that contain Star Cards for specific classes.

Crystals are an alternative form of currency that can used to purchase crates which feature Star Cards.
