Guide to Twitch Drops

This page gives you a breakdown of the key things you need to know regarding Twitch Drops, from the exciting rewards you can earn, to frequently asked questions and how to link your Wargaming and Twitch accounts.

What are Twitch Drops?

They are a new and easy way to earn rare and valuable rewards the more you watch selected World of Tanks streams on Twitch.tv.

All you need to do is watch World of Tanks Twitch streams with Drops enabled on special dates, including the Official NA World of Tanks Twitch channel, and after completing a few simple steps.

How to Get Twitch Drop Rewards

To be eligible for Twitch Drop rewards, you need to:

  1. Link your World of Tanks and Twitch accounts.
  2. You can track your progress toward a Twitch Drop through the progress bar. The progress bar must reach 100% before you can claim the Drop (detailed in Step 3). The image on the right shows the Drops menu and your progression towards a Drop. Access it by clicking your profile picture in the top right corner of the Twitch web page.
  3. Claim within 24 hours of the end of the campaign by clicking the button on the pop-up notification in the stream interface or in your personal Twitch inventory.

SHOW DROPS-ENABLED STREAMS

Due to the Twitch overhaul, all Drops—not just for World of Tanks—must now be actively claimed on your Twitch account by either clicking the button on the pop-up notification in the stream interface or in your personal Twitch inventory. If you do not take action, the reward will disappear 24 hours after the end of each campaign. For more information, consult the "All Campaigns" tab in the Twitch interface.

How to Connect Your Accounts

  1. Go to your Wargaming Account management page.
  2. Click the Twitch Button on the right (as shown).
  3. Authorize the connection on the next page.
  4. After successfully connecting the accounts, you will see Twitch as a linked platform in your Wargaming account settings. You'll also see Wargaming.net in your Twitch account settings.

If you don't have a Twitch.tv account yet, you need to start by creating one.

FAQ

What are Twitch Drops?

Twitch Drops are in-game rewards credited to those who tune in to special Twitch streams. To be eligible, your Wargaming.net and Twitch accounts need to be linked.

Claim within 24 hours of the end of the campaign by clicking the button on the pop-up notification in the stream interface or in your personal Twitch inventory. If you do not take any action, the Drop reward will disappear 24 hours after the campaign ends.

How can I tell if a streamer has Drops enabled?

You can see when a Drops campaign is available on a channel on the Browse category and channel pages by looking for the drops-enabled tag. You can also filter by the Drops enabled tag when looking when viewing a category page. See the example below of a confirmation in the chatbox the streamer has active Twitch Drops running:

How do I know if I received a Drop?

You must hit the "Claim" button in the Twitch interface.

You can track exactly how long you need to watch a stream for in order to get the next Drop, thanks to a handy progress bar that will fill up as time passes. Once the bar is filled, you will get a notification right in your browser with a button to claim the reward. The image below shows a notification the Drop conditions have been fulfilled and a new claim is available:

Once you have claimed the Drop on Twitch, you will receive an in-game notification in the bottom-right of your screen when in the Garage. If you are already in the game, you might have to log out of the game and back in to receive the notification and the Drop. You can check your progress any time by opening up the profile menu and looking under the Drops menu item while you are on a channel or by visiting your personal Twitch inventory:

Make sure you claim within 24 hours of the end of the campaign. If you do not take any action, the Drop reward will disappear 24 hours after the campaign ends. When you receive a drop you may be prompted to share your claimed Drops in the chat (as shown below):

I think I got a Drop, but why hasn’t the item shown up in my game account?

The streamer is responsible for fulfilling the Drop rewards in the game. Unfortunately, this may take time to process. You can check that the item has shown up on your personal Twitch inventory and that your game account is linked to the correct Twitch account.

Can I get Twitch Drops from watching past (recorded) broadcasts?

No. Progress towards earning Twitch Drops is only taken into account when watching LIVE broadcasts. After fulfilling the Twitch Drop requirements on a live stream you must claim the Drop within 24 hours of the end of the campaign by clicking the button on the pop-up notification in the stream interface or in your personal Twitch inventory. 

How many Twitch Drops can I get?

You can only get each Drop once per account unless stated otherwise.

What are the different types of Drops?

As of early 2021, all Drops are guaranteed. However, some Drops such as special commanders and 3D styles are much more valuable than other items up for grabs. Therefore, you may be required to watch for more time to get certain Drops.

Is there any further information on Twitch Drops?

You can read about Twitch Drops via Twitch's very own help section.
