BioWare has revealed the SWTOR May 2022 in-game events. We have Double XP, Pirate Incursion, Bounty Contract Week and the Swoop Rally!

Double XP Event

Starting May 3rd and lasting until May 10th, there will be a Double XP event! Enjoy multiple weeks of Double XP, Valor, Renown (if only), and more. (?)

Date: May 3rd – May 10th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: None!

SWTOR-Double-XP-Event

For the week of May the Fourth, we’ll have Double XP. It seems like BioWare needs to update their description because Renown is sadly gone and there is nothing more that goes along with this. Nonetheless, it’s the first Double XP event of 7.0, so it’ll be a great time to get the rest of your alts leveled up.

Pirate Incursion

The remote planet Dantooine has been thrust into the center of escalating hostilities between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Spurred on in secret by covert Imperial forces, the Nova Blade pirates have staged an all-out attack on the pastoral Republic world. As the Republic scrambles to defend this key territory at the edge of Imperial space, the Empire plans to capitalize on the chaos and deal a major blow to the longtime Republic bastion.

Date: May 3rd – May 10th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 20+

The amount of rewards provided by this event is fantastic, but I still think reward payouts need to be increased significantly (or have costs reduced) because it just takes such a long time to get any rewards that it doesn’t feel like it’s worth the effort. Since this event is basically a regular daily area, it would be nice if they revamped the weekly structure to match what they’ve done for endgame content where weeklies are repeatable and all the missions reward you with Daily Resource Matrices and such.

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • Nova Blade and Dantooine Homesteader Armor Sets
  • Ugnaught Companion
  • Walker Mount
  • Kath Hound Mount
  • Kath Hound Mini-pet
  • Dantooine-inspired Stronghold Decorations
  • …and more!

Bounty Contract Week

For a limited time, the Bounty Brokers Association has opened its doors to anyone willing to take on their dangerous contracts, offering an opportunity for both seasoned and rookie hunters to prove their skills and bring crime syndicates and violent gangs to justice!

Each day, you can sign up for one standard Henchman contract and one high profile Kingpin Contract, and each may take you to a separate planet. Complete five standard contracts to unlock Kingpin missions with bigger loot! Head to the fleet now, invite your friends and visit representatives of the Association to get started on your contracts!

Date: May 17th – May 24th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 15+

Please BioWare, put the CZX-4 weapons back on the CM!

Bounty Contract Week doesn’t get enough credit for being a really creative event. It’s not just a daily area like so many others and really feels like bounty hunting. Since it’s been around for so long, it’s a bit weird to see so many voiced cutscenes without the KOTOR black bars.

I’d love to see the event get expanded. It seems like this would have been a better structure for the solo raid concept back in in 4.0 with the Eternal Championship where BioWare would just release new opponents here periodically.

It also would be neat if Bounty Hunter origin stories got something special for this like maybe the event is always active for them or they get access to all the Kingpin missions without having to buy them.

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • Reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association
  • Bounty Tracker’s Armor Set and Contract Hunter’s Armor Set
  • Assassin’s Bowcaster and Elite Tracker’s Bowcaster weapons
  • Lobelot, Swamp Kell Drake, and Drink Server Probe Mini-pets
  • BH-7X Custom Hunter Mount
  • … and more!

The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally

In the growing shadow of war, swoop fans across the galaxy descend on Dantooine, Tatooine, and even Onderon for the sport’s biggest spectacle—The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally! They’re packing the stands, eager to take their minds off their troubles and cheer their favorite swoop gangs. The bikers are here to take on dangerous challenge courses, show off their piloting skills, and flaunt their souped-up swoop bikes. The thunder of the engines, the deafening applause from the fans, the wind battering their helmets… there’s no bigger rush for these thrill seekers.

Despite their reputation as wild rebels whose makeshift courses disregard local districting restrictions, swoop gangs aren’t a serious threat to anyone–something all true swoop fans know! They just love adrenaline-pounding speed, sweet jumps, and big explosions, and the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally combines all three in one crowd-pleasing package. The biggest gangs on the circuit — Horizon’s Razor, the Pit Screamers, and the Blatant Beks — are ready to show their fans a great time.

Date: May 31st – June 7th (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Levels 20+

I miscalculated the last time this event came around. I thought I had saved up enough of the Reputation trophies to reach Legendary with all 3 gangs, but I ended up missing it by about 1,000 Rep for both the Blatant Beks and Pit Screamers, which is like a single purple trophy each!

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • Swoop Rally Mounts (regular and gold versions)
  • Swoop Gang Outfits
  • Promotion Droid Mini-pets
  • Various Stronghold Decorations
  • …and more!

Ten Year Anniversary

We are happy to celebrate out 10th anniversary on December 20th! With this being a huge milestone, we are going to celebrate the anniversary all year long! To mark this occasion, a special “Anniversary Personnel” vendor can be found on the fleet with new Class Ship Stronghold Decorations. All previous anniversary rewards will also be available during this limited time as well.

Date: December 14th, 2021 – January, 2023 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Levels 10+

There aren’t any new rewards that have been announced. I think I had said before with a PTS preview that I thought the Reforged Weapon set might be coming here, but I was mistaken since BioWare opted to sell that on the CM instead. I imagine the next batch of goodies will be released with 7.1, but nothing has been announced yet.

FEATURED REWARDS:

  • Faction-based fireworks
  • Commemorative Statues of HK-51, Valkorian, and Malgus
  • Senya Holo-statue
  • Fireworks Celebratory Backpack
  • Several Stronghold Decoration posters
  • Class Ship Stronghold Decorations
  • … and more!
