Since this Guide is based on the PTS version of this Event, some of this may be subject to change! Will update as the Event goes on Live Servers.


Welcome to my ‘All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally’ Event Guide!

Yes! It’s finally happened! Star Wars The Old Republic has introduced Swoop Bike Racing into the game via a brand new event! This event will be added to the rotating roster of other events currently in the game.


Go to Republic or Imperial Fleet to start the Event!

There are three different Swoop Bike Racing Tracks and with three different factions which each have their own special course. Each course (for each faction) alters the objectives of a race track.

Race Tracks

  • Dantooine – South of the Nova Blade Cave Hideout (heroic instance)
  • Onderon – East of the Oasis
  • Tatooine – The Dune Sea, Wreck of the Stardream (north of Outpost Thorazan)

Factions

  • Blatant Beks – Fireworks and Explosions
  • Horizon’s Razors – Speed
  • Pit Screamers – Jumps, Hoops and Flairs

The race tracks are not instanced meaning you could be completing a course with other players. This means some objectives are shared with other players. These objectives take roughly 2-3 second to respawn. You can explore the race tracks without initiating a course.

Once you reach Newcomer Rank, each Swoop Gang Faction has its own story mission. Completing these rewards you with a small amount of reputation.


How to Start the Event and Introductory Mission

Click on a News Terminal on your faction’s fleet. News Terminals are located near the entrance to any of the lifts on the outer ring.

Once the cutscene is completed, you will get the mission ‘The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally‘. This mission directs you to investigate the Swoop Gangs on Dantooine.

Once you arrive on Dantooine, head to the Swoop Bike Race Track and speak to Zella. For Imperial players, it is quicker to Quick travel to the Scout Camp, if you have it unlocked, instead of travelling all the way from the Hidden Imperial Base.

Once you have spoken to Zella, speak to the various gangs in the Swoop Bike garage area located just to the north of Zella’s position.

Once you have spoken to them, return to Zella. Then, you will be directed to visit the Rally Mission Terminals. When you get close to them, the mission will auto-complete.


Dailies and Weeklies List and Mission Rewards

The Daily and Weekly Terminals are only accessible once you have completed the introductory Mission ‘The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally‘. See the ‘How to Start the Event and Introductory Mission’ section, above, for details.

The Daily and Weekly Terminals can be found in the garage areas at all the race tracks except on Dantooine. On Dantooine, the Daily Terminals are located next to the bar and across from Zella. The Weekly Terminal is in the garage area.

Tip – Each Daily comes with a Priority Transport! So once you have finished all 3 Swoop Gang Factions Dailies on one planet, you can go back to the Mission Terminals and pick up a daily for another planet.

How to Begin a Race Course

After completing the introductory mission, you need to pick up a daily from the Rally Mission Terminals found on Dantooine, Onderon and Tatooine. You can only have one daily for each course type, at a time, for the planet you are on. For example, if you pick up the Pit Screamers Daily for Dantooine you cannot pick up the Blatant Beks and Horizon’s Razors Dailies for Dantooine.

Once you select a daily, click on the factions Swoop Bike indicated by the animated green arrow.

Once you get on the Swoop Bike, and experience/spacebar the cutscene, make your way to the starting line. The Swoop Bike automatically moves forward so you just have to direct it with the ‘A’ and D’ keys or by holding down the right mouse button and moving your mouse (mouse turning). While in this mode the Swoop Bike will move at ‘Safety Speed’.

Once you reach the starting line, the Swoop Bike will stop and a countdown will begin. The objectives will also pop-up and appear in the Mission Tracker.

Once the countdown is complete, the race will begin and the Swoop Bike will start moving forward at a faster speed. Complete all the objectives to complete the course and the daily.

Once you complete the course and objectives, you will automatically be dismounted from the Swoop Bike.


Race Track Basics

Start Line

When you get on a faction Swoop Bike after picking up the daily, proceed to the Start Line to start the course.

Objectives

Objectives that are ‘shared’ with other players will be marked as shared below (see details for each factions course objectives below).

Checkpoints

You must pass through all the checkpoints on the race course to complete the challenege and the daily.

Finish Line

Once you’ve done all the objectives, pass through the finish line to complete the course and daily.


Race Track Hazards

If you run into or through one of these hazards, it will slow your Swoop Bike down and/or cause you to be thrown up into the air.
