LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga players discover that if you hit young Anakin, you can fly

Accidentally encountering bugs in games is nothing new — or finding bugs for that matter — as we’ve seen recently with Elden Ring’s buggy twist and other glitches.the situation is no different LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The game has been in the wild for two days and players have found a rather interesting but practical exploit to play with.

red orb brought Twitter The exploit was shared and immediately dubbed “Children’s Flight.” It’s a very fitting name, there’s no denying it.

This video shows Qui-Gon Jinn repeatedly attacking a young Anakin in the Federal District with their lightsabers, and it soon becomes clear that this version of Anakin is immune to friendly fire. So, as Red Orb discovered, when he hits him over and over, a momentum is gained that allows Qui-Gon Jinn to fly through a space.

It’s not uncommon for kids to be unharmed in video games, and this exploit from The Skywalker Saga basically gives you a training dummy to test combos or traverse trivial environments.

While we can’t fly through space like we can with the Millennium Falcon or any of our other craft, this morally dubious exploit could help with a risky jump or two, that’s for sure. I wouldn’t get into the habit of using it though, or you’ll be adding the dark side unknowingly.

If you want to try it out for yourself, you can unlock young Anakin (and many more characters) by playing Episode 1 of The Skywalker Saga. The Federal District also has plenty of high-altitude and daunting drops for you to test your exploits for!
