The Star Wars series is filled to the brim with amazing memorable characters. Every type of fan has their specific favorite one. And in Lego Stars Wars: The Skywalker Saga the character count is insane with around 400 characters at your disposal. Yes, you read that right 400!
With so many characters you must be wondering what’s the catch! The only catch is that you have to unlock them by different means, and once unlocked, you have to buy them with Studs to use them in-game. The ways you can unlock characters are by:
- Buying Rumors
- Side Quests
- Cheat Codes
Not all the characters are unlocked in the same way as some may require one of these 3 ways to unlock. And do keep in mind that you have to buy the character even after you have unlocked them. You can increase the amount of Studs you can acquire with multipliers.
This way of unlocking characters is easily missable but it is the only way you can pinpoint which character you want to unlock and how you can do it. In the character screen, you will have many locked slots with the respective name of the character, selecting these unavailable characters will give you the option to “Buy Rumor” which costs around 30,000 Studs.
Buying the rumor will tell you exactly which mission or episode you need to progress through to get the desired character. You can conveniently visit the mission from this screen by pressing the Square on PS4/PS5 or X on Xbox Series X/S. Though the mission will only be playable if you have done the pre-requisite for it.
The next way of unlocking is by completing the side quests strewn all over the game. Explore each map location for NPCs that gives quests. You can easily identify these side quests by approaching a quest giver NPC and you can see a character icon in the speech bubble above them, alluding to the reward for the quest will be the said character.
Complete the quest and you will unlock the character for yourself. Again the character will only be unlocked and it is required to buy for some Studs to play with them.
Don’t worry these codes won’t affect your save files or halt your progression. The codes in this game hide some iconic characters that you can unlock only by this method, there is no other way of getting these. And the best part is unlike the previous methods the characters unlocked in this way will be playable too without the need to buy them, free essentially.
