Lego Star Wars Players Take Flight By Juggling Younglings

Star Wars has had an interesting history with violence against children, as evidenced by the infamous youngling scene in Revenge of the Sith. And even though Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is for all ages, it still lets players beat younglings, albeit in its own way, which has let to an interesting exploit. Streamer RedOrbFragment has found a trick he calls “Child Flight” where repeatedly striking Phantom Menace-era Anakin Skywalker gives the player the ability to soar in the air.

As seen in the clip, smashing young characters with friendly fire keeps the playable Jedi in the air, allowing for players to cross large gaps and bypass jumping puzzles. Younger characters can’t die in the game, meaning players are free to beat them and use juggle combos to gain plenty of altitude. RedOrbFragment even made another video where he got a collectible using this method.

Different Jedi gain different movement hacks based on how their attacks work, so there’s even some room for improvement in this speedy strategy that runners will likely dive into over the coming days. In the meantime, the initial clip of Qui Gon beating his chosen apprentice silly has gone viral across social media thanks to the natural juxtaposition provided by child abuse becoming a handy tool in a game based on the Disney-owned space opera.

RedOrbFragment’s stream (around 53 minutes in) shows him trying out the ability. It takes a few tries, but he is able to snag the Kyber Brick on top of the statue using Obi-Wan Kenobi.
