How To Use Scavenger Skills and Unlock The Glider In Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features many characters and all of them are part of a specific category. Each of these categories has a specific playstyle and mechanics attached to them that are used to solve various puzzles and problems in the game. Character category icons will depict a puzzle and which category is required to solve it.

At the start of the game, you must have come across some scavenger icon puzzle that even if you have the category equipped you will not be able to interact with it. Worry not as this requires you progress through Star Wars The Force Awakens episode to unlock the abilities associated with this category.

How to unlock Scavenger abilities

To unlock the scavenger abilities for the whole class of characters is by starting the Star Wars The Force Awakens episode. Here you will be introduced to Rey who is a scavenger and just around 15 minutes in this episode you will be prompted to explore some ship ruins.

While exploring you will be given three different abilities one by one to traverse the ship’s carcass. The abilities are:

  1. Net Launcher: Used to throw a net at certain points on some walls to make them climbable.
  2. Glider: This lets you glide through the air to reach farther distances or glide over gaps to reach the otherside.
  3. Breaker Blaster: This allows you to break special breakable walls or use it as a projectile launcher.

Once you have all three abilities unlocked don’t just quit and go to the initial puzzle you were stuck at. Keep playing this episode until you reach the space section of the mission and from here you are free to travel to any planet you like or wanted to explore with these abilities.

Having done this, the ability will be unlocked for the whole Scavenger category of characters and not just Rey, so use whoever you want as long as it is Scavenger to solve the puzzles.


These abilities will be beneficial in your journey to gather all the multitude of collectibles this game has for you like Kyber Bricks and now you can use your favorite characters while doing it. These Lego games are a huge Collect-a-Thon so explore and find them all.
