Frequently Asked Questions
Twitch Drops are in-game rewards credited to those who tune in to special Twitch streams. To be eligible, your Wargaming.net and Twitch accounts must be linked.
Currently, there are two types of Twitch Drop:
- Regular Drops
- Mystery Drops
Claim them within 24 hours of the end of the campaign by clicking the button in the pop-up notification in the stream interface or in your personal Twitch Inventory. If you do not take any action, the Drop reward will disappear 24 hours after the campaign ends.
You are guaranteed a reward any time you watch a stream with Drops enabled for the set watch time.
Regular Drops guarantee you a pre-selected item. Some items, such as special commanders and 3D styles, are much more valuable than other available items. Therefore, you may be required to watch for longer to get certain Drops.
Mystery Drops guarantee you a random item from the given selection. High-value items, such as tanks, have a lower probability of dropping than more common items. Once you have earned a Mystery Drop, you can find out which item you received and claim it by logging in to the game.
No, a Prime Gaming membership (Twitch Prime) is not required to receive Twitch Drops.
Players with Prime Gaming memberships can redeem various in-game items each month, but that isn't connected to Twitch Drops. For more information on Prime Gaming, visit the World of Tanks Prime Gaming page.
You can see when a Drops campaign is available on a channel in the Browse category or channel pages by looking for the drops-enabled tag. You can also filter by the Drops Enabled tag when viewing a category page. A chatbox confirmation that the streamer has active Twitch Drops running looks like this:
You must hit the "Claim" button in the Twitch interface.
A handy progress bar fills up as time passes, allowing you to track exactly how long you need to watch a stream in order to get the next Drop. Once the bar is filled, you will get a notification right in your browser with a button to claim the Drop reward. The image below shows a notification that the Drop conditions have been fulfilled and a new claim is available:
Once you have claimed the Drop on Twitch, you will receive an in-game notification in the lower-right part of your screen in the Garage. If you are already in the game, you might have to log out of the game and then back in to receive the notification and the Drop. You can check your progress at any time by opening up the profile menu and looking under the Drops menu item while you are on a channel or by visiting your personal Twitch Inventory. See the image below:
Make sure you claim the Drop within 24 hours of the end of the campaign. If you do not take any action, the Drop reward will disappear 24 hours after the campaign ends. When you receive a Drop, you may be prompted to share your claimed Drops in the chat, like in the image below:

No. Progress towards earning Twitch Drops is only taken into account when watching LIVE broadcasts.
