Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga cheats can help you get the most out of this adventure in a galaxy far, far away as you battle and explore your way through the nine main films. If you’re familiar with how Lego games generally work, you’ll already know the basics like breaking bricks, collecting studs, and battling enemies, but there’s a lot more to see and do in Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga, like improve your crew, meet a large number of characters and find an almost inconceivable number of objects to collect. Whether you’re a regular at Brick Trips or new to the series, you’ll find helpful tips in these essential Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga cheats.
1. Break stuff, collect bricks
Hit everything you see to make bricks appear, then quickly pick them up because after a short time they will flash and then disappear. The color of the bricks is important because it reveals their value. Silver is only worth 10 and gold 100, but keep an eye out for blues which are worth 1000 and purples 10000. Your ultimate goal is to fill the three brick bars at the top of the screen and achieve True Jedi status for that level, unlocking three Kyber Bricks to use for upgrades. Bricks are also used to buy characters, ships, and other unlockables, so the more you collect, the better.
2. Collect your lost bricks if you are eliminated.
If you are defeated by an enemy or eliminated by falling into a dangerous area, your character will explode in a shower of bricks which will be deducted from the total you have collected so far. Therefore, as soon as your character respawns, you have to quickly run around the area to collect all the lost bricks before they disappear, although luckily they don’t go too far. Beware of bright red items as they explode when damaged, and if they kill you you will look like they dropped a bunch of bricks but a lot of them will be from your own reserve, so shoot them from a distance to be sure.
If you’re worried about losing too many studs by falling in dangerous areas, you can head to the game options in the menu and enable drop recovery in the controls section. If this option is activated, you will be brought back to a safe position if you miss a critical jump without losing any bricks.
3. Use a variety of attacks
When fighting enemies you’ll mostly use your normal attack button, but don’t forget to add heavy attacks and jump attacks to mix things up and continue your combos. You’ll get bonuses for the highest combos and you can track your progress with the bar on the right side of the screen. Land another hit before the combo time bar runs out to continue and achieve higher multipliers. If the word Blocked! appears is that your enemy is deflecting your attack, so try different moves to get through. During the fight, you may see an exclamation point appear on a red background. If you press the Counter button, you will not only be able to avoid your enemy’s attack, but also inflict massive damage to them in return.
4. Evaluate your options when given a choice of path to take
Many levels have branching lines, where you’ll have to make a decision about which direction to take. When you get to these points, try to look as far away as possible and assess which direction to take. If you see that one of the options seems to lead to a dead end, chances are that a reward awaits you there or a level challenge to complete eludes you if you go the other route. If the choice involves the construction of one of several buildings, you can use one of them before demolishing it to rebuild it like the other, so as not to lock yourself into your first decision.
5. Improve your abilities as soon as possible
Buy the best Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Upgrades from the Holoprojector whenever you can to improve your abilities, using Bricks and Kyber Bricks collected from levels. Focus on basic upgrades first, for which you need to start at the top and work your way down the skill tree unlocking new upgrades as you go, and although many of them have three levels available , you should only buy one level initially to be able to progress through the upgrades available. When you get to the second full row, focus on maxing out Attract Studs and Collectible Coin Finder, as they will help you collect Studs much more efficiently while also revealing nearby collectibles .
Once you get these upgrades, there are more for specific classes that you can look at to further increase your stud collection. The Bounty Hunter’s Hidden Bounties upgrade drops studs from defeated enemies, while the Hero Terminal Expert, Villain Terminal Expert, and Astromech Grips Expert will give you bonus studs for completing terminals and sockets, and the protocol droid’s paid translator will earn studs for each foreign language translation. The Rogue Business Opportunist upgrade will reduce the stud cost of buying Rumors and Clues, which will come in handy later in the game when filling out your collectibles.
6. Don’t neglect your other characters to solve problems.
Each character type has its own abilities, and you can switch between characters even when playing alone to combine them and solve puzzles. For example, Jedi and dark side characters can use the Force to move objects, while protocol droids can interpret foreign languages, and heroes can wear disguises. You’ll unlock loads of new Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga characters just by playing through the levels, with some being free while others will have to pay to be unlocked through your bricks. If you select a character from the character menu, you can see the cost needed to unlock it. We don’t recommend spending your Rheumatism Studs on these as most will be found naturally during the main story and side missions.
7. Data cards are really useful
Datacards in Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga give you massive benefits when unlocked, such as increasing the value of collected studs or giving you a sidekick in battle, as well as giving you access to a suite of humorous effects that you can apply to the game. However, their purchase comes at a high price and requires an elusive collectible data card. So it’s best to wait until the appropriate Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga cheats have been revealed so you can equip them without spending all your studs. By choosing Brick Multipliers first, you will be able to accumulate them and reach the Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga x10 Brick Multiplier, allowing you to pay for more Data Cards, Characters and Upgrades later.
