Lost Ark Twitch drops are in-game rewards for the free-to-play MMO you can earn by watching participating streamers, usually those who are members of the Lost Ark creators program (opens in new tab), via Twitch. (Or by having their streams open in another tab while you should be working, if that’s how you roll. I’m not the boss of you.)
Those players you’ve probably seen zooming around Arkesia on the top of golden electric hoverboards while accompanied by pets that look like mystical foxes earned them from earlier Twitch drops given away to celebrate Lost Ark’s launch. More items have been given away regularly since.
With this guide, you’ll be able to score sweet free loot just just like those high-flying fancypants. You’re welcome.
What Lost Ark Twitch drops are available?
The current Twitch drops promotion began on September 16. This one lets you earn a Beerhead Selection Chest, which contains a glass of beer you can wear as a hat. It’s part of the current Arktoberfest celebration, which also includes a weekend fever-time event. It will end on October 3.
When you open the chest you can choose one of three varieties of Beer Headwear to keep, each of which buffs a different virtue stat. The lager gives + 15 to charisma, the ale gives +15 to kindness, and the stout gives +15 to courage. All three also give a +1% boost to your class’s primary attribute, whether strength, dexterity, or intelligence.

How to get Lost Ark Twitch drops
To activate Twitch drops, go to the Lost Ark website (opens in new tab), sign into Twitch, link your Steam account, and finally click on the activate button. For this Twitch drop you’ll need to watch four hours’ worth of participating streams, though not all at once.
As always, go to the Lost Ark category on Twitch (opens in new tab) and filter it by Drops Enabled to find them fastest. I like to scroll down and find a lesser-known streamer who could do with an extra view, but there are plenty of other tags to help you navigate.
Make sure to rack up your four hours before the Beerhead promotion ends on October 3.
When you’ve earned a drop, you’ll get a notification in Twitch. (Notifications are up top, between whispers and Prime Gaming Loot.) That’ll guide you to your Twitch inventory page, where you need to claim the drop. After that, it should show up in-game within 24 hours. Access it from the product inventory next to your mail.
