Star Wars Battlefront Wiki
Progression Update

A Skill Point is a resource in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that can be used to unlock and upgrade Star Cards for soldiers, heroes, and vehicles. It was added in the 2.0 Patch, replacing Crafting Parts. The introduction of the Skill Point marked the overhaul of Battlefront II's progression system from one based on luck to one based on skill and time played.


One Skill Point is awarded every time the player levels up a soldier, hero, or vehicle, and can only be used to unlock or upgrade Star Cards for that particular unit. For example, a Skill Point obtained by leveling up the Specialist can only be used to unlock/upgrade Star Cards for the Specialist.

The player will receive enough Skill Points to level up every Star Card for a particular unit to Epic rarity, the highest rarity. Once all Star Cards have been maxed out, completing a level rewards 1,000 Credits instead of a Skill Point.


  • Skill Points are the only currency to have no icon. Crystals, Credits, and Crafting Parts all have icons.
