There will be days when anyone streaming in The Cycle: Frontier category on Twitch will be able to have Twitch drops enabled. However, on other days, only partnered streamers and affiliates will be able to have Twitch drops enabled, so you’ll need to keep an eye out for which streamers you’re able to get drops from by keeping an eye on their social media.

Each day that Twitch drops are enabled, you can earn up to 6 drops per day across 18 hours. You need to be watching streamers with Twitch drops enabled to get those drops. The later in the day the drop arrives, the better the reward can be. However, the best way to get a legendary is to try to get every drop throughout a season. Everyone can claim a maximum of 66 drops, putting you in a powerful position the next time you drop onto Fortuna III.

On the days that Twitch drops are enabled, the start and end time for earning rewards is 6 AM ET. The dates will vary. For example, if a Twitch drop period runs from June 20 to 21, the start time is 6 AM ET on June 20 and the end time is 6 AM ET on June 21.
