Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes: Galactic War Cheat!

Galaxy of Heroes: Galactic War Game Mode

Galactic War is unlocked by reaching a certain player level within the game. Once unlocked, you can battle through a full set of different fights, waging war on all sorts of different squads until you either reach the end of the table and win, or lose all of your characters. Essentially, Galactic War is Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes' take on the 'Survival Mode' type of game.

In Galactic War you can use every single one of your characters. The catch is, their health doesn't recover after each battle. If you want to keep your SWGoH squad's health topped up, then you need to use a healer during a battle (I would suggest Luminara). I would advise taking advantage of easy battles - by easy I mean when the opposing team are a few levels lower than yours - to heal your damaged squad members.

Although, saying that, I should probably get on to the topic at hand... There is a way you can ensure that you complete Galactic War every day, picking up maximum rewards! This will help you unlock and upgrade characters using the Galactic War tokens, plus you'll earn credits, purple crystals and more!

Galactic War Cheat SWGoH

Here's a step-by-step guide to cheating (sort of) your way through the Galactic War every day on Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes:

First 5 steps to Galactic War completion

  1. Start a Galactic War or press 'Restart' if yesterday's war is still running
  2. Enter your first fight (you should win this easily)
  3. Enter the second fight (again, should be easy)
  4. Okay, now you might need to start concentrating
  5. Form now on, if any of your squad die, or are on low health toward the end of the battle and you're going to win, you need to exit and close the app.

Closing the Galaxy of Heroes app and then re-opening

  • Press the Home button on your iPhone / tablet
  • Now double tap the Home button really quickly
  • Now swipe Galaxy of Heroes off so it shuts down fully

Re-opening Galactic War

  • Re-open Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes app
  • Press Galactic War
  • You'll notice the fight you were in when you closed the app has been un-done
  • Enter the fight and you'll see you have all characters all at full health!

It's essentially a method of re-doing every battle you mess up on. If your key characters are on mid to low health, and you can't heal and are near a win (or lose), then close the app and redo the fight again. You won't regret it. When you get to the harder stages of Galactic War, this 'redo' method is so useful!

By ensuring you complete the Galactic War every day, not only do you fast-track yourself to earning Achievements and the rewards associated with these, but you also bag yourself hundreds of Galactic War tokens to spend on those crucial, expensive character upgrades and unlocks!

Galaxy of Heroes Galactic War Tips and Tricks

Galactic War: Characters Shards

Below is a list of the character shards you can purchase using Galactic War tokens. For 400 tokens, you can get 5 character shards of any of the following:

  • IG-86 Sentinel Droid
  • Resistance Pilot
  • Dathcha
  • Luminara Unduli
  • Tusken Raider
  • Poggle the Lesser
  • Captain Phasma
  • Nightsister Initiate
  • Teebo
  • Briggs Darklighter
  • Qui-Gon Jinn

From these, Luminara and Phasma are the key stand-outs. Luminara is a very popular character and Phasma has a ridiculously good Leader Ability that grants many bonus attacks. I would advise concentrating your efforts and tokens on two, if not one, of these characters. I would level them up to higher star rankings by continually using Galactic Tokens to get shards. I would strongly advise against spreading your token spending across more than 3 characters in the above list. It will take you an age to upgrade their star rankings!

Should I Start Farming Qui Gon Jinn Shards?

Qui Gon Jinn is now available on Galactic War. An announcement came today that as new characters are released, current hard-to-obtain characters will be made more easily unlockable. The first character to become that bit easier to unlock is Jedi Master Qui Gon Jinn!

Previously, Qui Gon was only available through Data Packs. Now, we can all rejoice, because we can buy his character shards from the Galactic War store! For 400 Galactic Ware tokens you can get 5 Quin Gon Jinn shards - meaning he's no more or no less expensive than any other character shards available via Galactic War. That leaves the question... Is he worth it?

Many people are now facing the dilemma as to whether they should start to unlock Qui Gon instead of continue collecting shards for Phasma, Luminara or someone else. Should they put off their upgrading of their current characters in order to unlock and test out Qui Gon?

      I must agree that the restart button works a lot more than this idea, but nice try. Qui Gon Jin shards don't take almost 3 months bty, I got mine in less than a week.(Because I'm a Jedi Master and Knight) Anyway,Qui Gon Jinn shards aren't hard to get there are only 25 of them.hahaha!

      Qui Gon Jinn is NOT available in Galactic War Shop but in the Cantina Shop, the hardest and slowest shop to collect shards from. So QGJ is available but it'll take months, close to 3 to max his star count. Also, UPDATE! After you reach lvl 60, ships become available in the Galactic War shop. Luminara and Phasma are still great options but eventually after gaining access to the Wedge Module, you'll quickly want to collect and Max out Biggs. Currently, the Wedge + Biggs combo, or Wings as players are refering to it, is one of the best in the game!

      Good hub. This is one "cheat" that I don't find to be negative because it doesn't harm other players. Also, aren't Qui-Gon shards available using Cantina credits, not Galactic War tokens?

      you mentioned restarting the app when you loose a character in galactic war.... why not just retreat from the battle and start over, works much faster with the same results

      Mike, if you retreat whatever damage done to you sticks. If you shut the game down suddenly as the round it going it's like you never played the round in the first place. You can experiment with as many strategies as you have time for.

      Hahahaha. Um you know you could also go to the setting it the top left during a battle and just retreat? It does the same thing and it's quicker hahahahaha.
