Star Wars: Squadrons won’t just let you customize your Starfighters. You can also dress up your pilots in various cosmetics, which allows you to stand out from the crowd and write your own story as a Star Wars legend.

When you load Star Wars: Squadrons for the first time, you can select how you want your pilots, New Republic and Imperial, to look. You can only choose from the default skins available initially, which will be the orange and black flight suits, respectively. As you play, however, you can unlock different cosmetics.

As you play, score kills, and win matches, you will earn Glory points. These can be traded in for cosmetics, both pilot and ship customizable, that you can equip. These cosmetics will be viewable in Star Wars: Squadrons’ single-player campaign and multiplayer mode, which will help make your experience unique to you.

Pilot cosmetics don’t just relate to your character’s flight suit, either. Both pilots will have different heads to choose from, and the New Republic pilots will have both human and alien heads if you want to change your species.

You can also unlock various in-game voices, gloves, helmets, legwear, and torso apparel to equip. All of these options will grant you the opportunity to create unique pilots. The vast majority have been sourced from Star Wars canon, too, so you know whatever you equip will be authentic to this universe.

Mix and match the cosmetics that you unlock, and you will have two pilots at your disposal who are ready to show off in and out of the cockpit.
