Attacking younglings is great in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

The new LEGO Star Wars game lets you use its combat system in a number of unexpected ways, offering major gameplay advantages.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the latest instalment in TT Games’ series of LEGO titles. It boasts a number of changes to the LEGO game formula including more films to play through, more detailed worlds and a more nuanced combat system. This system allows you to chain together attacks, and deploy different moves to defeat enemies.

Of course, since this is a children’s game there are some concessions. You can’t kill Grogu: his hover-pram will put up the lid when you fire in his direction. It seems you can’t kill other younglings in the game, either – a notable break from franchise canon.

However, this gives players an unwitting advantage. As detailed by Twitch streamer RedOrb, chaining together lightsaber attacks on a child character allows you to stay airborne and even move around in the air.

Your choice of Jedi may also affect the direction of travel. While Qui-Gon Jinn seems to move horizontally, Classic Obi-Wan appears to move vertically instead.

This allows you to cross small gaps and find hidden collectibles more quickly, but this trick could be used in other ways. Since you can move upwards endlessly, it’s possible you could access out-of-bounds areas and other locations players were never meant to see.

As this radically changes the way players interact with the game, there’s a chance TT Games will patch it out before too long. As such, if you want to beat up LEGO children for personal gain, now is the time to do so.
