Fast Spawn events are special events where the respawn time is reduced to 1 second

Special events are periods of time in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II where core gameplay is changed or new content is made available by completing special, limited-time challenges. Special events occur in-game every weekend and are detailed monthly in a Community Calendar published on the game's official social channels.

Special events began September 2018, about one year after the game's release.
