Star Wars Battlefront 2 limits your earnings in Arcade mode to prevent Credits farming

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Arcade mode is a great way to unwind and just have a bit of fun in pre-made scenarios, but there’s an annoying catch.

The mode, much like almost anything in Star Wars Battlefront 2, awards you with Credits as you play. Like we’ve explained in our Battlefront 2 progression system breakdown, Credits are used to buy crates, which in turn get you Star Cards.

Credits can also be used to unlocked heroes, which now cost substantially less thanks to fan outcry. Arcade mode, then, is an easy way to earn a few extra Credits, but there’s a cap to how much you can earn.

Game Informer’s Andrew Reiner discovered after playing for a bit that the game stops awarding Credits altogether. The message he received plainly said that more Credits will be available in 14 hours.

While you could say that DICE added this cap to prevent Credits farming, the fact that players have to do this at all should tell you that Credit rewards are not plentiful during regular multiplayer gameplay.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out now for Deluxe Edition owners on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The standard edition goes live on Friday.
