Note that the closed beta code you earn from an XDefiant Twitch drop is only in effect until April 15, while the weapon skins can be claimed until April 23 (PST) and April 24 (EST).

How to Get XDefiant Closed Beta Twitch Drops

Before you start watching Twitch streams for an XDefiant beta code, there are a couple of things you need to do beforehand.

  • Make sure your Twitch account is linked to your Ubisoft account.
    • Head to the Ubisoft Drops page to link your account or double-check your status. Once your accounts are linked, you’ll be good to watch participating XDefiant streams. 

The current XDefiant Twitch drop expires April 15 at 1 p.m. EST / 10 a.m. PST. You’ll need to watch specific partnered streamers for 30 minutes to claim your code. Head to the XDefiant Twitch Drops info page for a full list of partners. 

How to Redeem XDefiant Twitch Drops

The code for the closed beta will only be active for the first 48 hours it’s live. Once you’ve watched 30 minutes of streams, go to the Twitch Drops inventory page to redeem your code.

How to Get XDefiant Twitch Weapon Skins

Along with the closed beta code, you’ll also be able to earn two weapon skins. Both drops will be live until April 23 at 11 p.m. PST / April 24 at 2 a.m. EST. The weapon skins are yours and will migrate over to the main game if you purchase it.  

  • D50 “Violet” Weapon Skin: Watch Partnered Streamers for 1 hour 
  • MK 20 SSR “Violet” Weapon Skin: Watch any XDefiant streamer who has Twitch Drops enabled for 1 hour 

Once you hit the required time, you can claim these in your Twitch Drops inventory page. 

That’s how to redeem and claim your XDefiant Twitch Drops. Two and a half hours is how long you need to watch streams to get the Closed Beta code, and two weapon skins, so get out there and get watching.
