After years of waiting and countless delays, the game many fans have been waiting for is finally here: LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The project by developer TT Games lets players immerse themselves in a bricked-out version of the iconic galaxy far, far away as they journey through the story of the franchise––not to mention getting to play as hundreds of one's favorite characters.
In this case, that encompasses Episodes I through IX, three generations of narrative remixed in a fun, unique way. What's even better is how the experience is perfect for both children and adults alike.
So far, the reception has been fairly positive. It seems that the developers did a great job of capturing the spirit of the franchise and creating a fun and engaging experience.
That said, however, its launch wasn’t perfect. On launch day, players already started to notice various bugs and glitches affecting their play-throughs. Someone even discovered an infinite jumping glitch.
Infinite Jumping Exploit Revealed in LEGO Skywalker Saga
In a new video from Nemsei Videos covering LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the user can be seen playing as Qui-Gon Jinn alongside kid Anakin while in Coruscant free roam within the Federal District.
It’s then that they show off an exploit that allows players to perform infinite jumps. In order to do this, one will need to be a Jedi. Then, simply attack a child character (in this case, Anakin).
Since children characters are unable to be killed within the game, when attacks against them are timed correctly, the attacker is able to continuously jump with each hit.

It’s easy to see why the developers would have made the choice to keep children invulnerable. After all, just look at all the Anakin Order 66 memes.
However, at the end of the day, they’re just LEGO bricks. Players are no doubt doing questionable, or straight-up bad, actions with many of the other various characters throughout the game—it’s hard to imagine any terrible consequences of letting child LEGO figures get damaged.
It is a LEGO game, after all, goofing around and having fun are part of the experience.
With this exploit discovered, TT Games will undoubtedly find a fix, which may require changing that youthful invincibility. Though, it’s only a matter of time until fans fight something else to mess around with.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available for digital or physical purchase wherever games are sold.
