Compared to previous LEGO games, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga added a variety of new gameplay features to mix things up. One of them is the Character Types feature that divides 300+ playable minifigs into 10 different archetypes all with respective Abilities. Scavenger-type character is among them, which you might already stumble upon while playing through the story mode or entering cheat codes before unlocking their Tools first. These Scavenger Tools are essential, exclusive Abilities that allow them to uncover secrets and complete puzzles. Here’s how you can unlock Scavenger Tools and use them while playing as Scavengers in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
How to Use Scavengers Properly in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
To unlock Scavenger characters’ full potential, you need to progress through Episode VII – The Force Awakens until you reach the “Scraps for Scraps” story mission. As Rey and BB-8, you’re tasked to collect 20 pieces of scrap scattered throughout Niima Outpost for Unkar Plutt. Once it’s done, now you can craft all three Scavenger Tools — Blaster Breaker, Glider, and Net Launcher — near white workbenches by using Rey. Keep following the tutorial and complete the mission to unlock the Scavenger Tools permanently.
You can easily call the Scavenger Tool menu at any time while controlling a Scavenger character such as Rey, a Tusken Raider, or a Jawa. Hold B (Xbox), Circle (PlayStation), or A (Switch) to bring up the menu; drop them by pressing the button again. These Tools have unlimited uses, so don’t worry about running out of ammunition!
