A LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga player has found a creative way to fly thanks to the way friendly fire works around younger characters.
The latest LEGO game promises players through the most memorable moments of the Star Wars movie series. However, some players have started to make the LEGO models behave out of character in order to move forward quickly. Players have discovered that attacking the younger characters in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga can help players fly, even if it might be a chaotic, evil way to play the new LEGO title.
According to the players who share this strange new way of flying, apparently the ability is the result of the way LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is about friendly fire and child characters. In addition, this flying skill could even be an early example of techniques for speedrunners trying to beat the game as quickly as possible.
The key to flying in this case is to attack Young Anakin Skywalker or other child characters, who take no damage from friendly fire and therefore will not die. Since Young Anakin takes no damage or dies, the player can continue the attack combo while in the air for as long as they want, with each attack pushing both characters higher and farther. Not only is this comical for most players, but it can actually be more effective than LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s built-in glide that players might otherwise use for this type of traversal.
One of the best results from players discovering this technique is that it allows for easy passage over large potholes and empty spaces. This could theoretically allow dedicated players to skip puzzles or even entire levels by simply flying over areas that would normally stop progress. So in addition to giving a preemptive penalty to a future Darth Vader, this could lead to players beating the game faster than most would have thought possible during their first playthrough.
The LEGO series of games aren’t new to players finding strange ways to progress, from dying in specific areas to respawn outside walls or boundaries, to jumping across platforms that should be out of reach. It’s not often, though, that this type of technique requires players to attack their own teammates, let alone one of the few player-controllable child characters. But even being forced to attack a young Anakin might be easier than solving a few problems LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga‘s more difficult puzzles using the developer’s intended methods.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
