How to Use Scavenger Abilities in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

LEGO Star Wars the Skywalker Saga

Wondering how to use the abilities of Scavenger type minifigures in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga? Here’s what you need to know.

There are multiple types of minifigures in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Each class has its own abilities, and one of the most useful is the Scavenger class. Scavengers in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga have three key abilities – more than most other minifigures in the game. But how do you use them?

There are numerous Scavenger characters available, and the point you unlock one will likely depend on which Episodes you play first. The easiest way to unlock a Scavenger – and be given access to all their tools – is to jump into Episode VII: The Force Awakens. There, you’ll play as Rey, a Scavenger character. Very quickly, you’ll be given access to her three tools.

The three key Scavenger tools in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga are as follows:
  • Net Launcher: Fire a net which allows you to climb up walls
  • Breaker Blaster: A huge gun which can break through certain points in cracked walls
  • Glider: Can glide through the air for a short amount of time

To access the tools on PlayStation, hold down the circle button. On Xbox, hold down B, and on Switch, hold down A. This will bring up a menu to choose which ability you want to use.

However, it’s entirely possible you may have unlocked a Scavenger without having been given access to their abilities. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has a multitude of ways to gain new characters, and unless you’ve played through a story scene featuring a Scavenger, you may not be able to use their abilities.

And so, if you find yourself unable to select any abilities with your Scavenger, we’d suggest you jump into Episode VII. Early on, Rey will be instructed to use each of her Scavenger abilities. And once you’ve done that, they’ll become available to all characters of the same class.
