Trying to Kill Kids in Lego Star Wars Reveals Surprisingly Useful Exploit

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga adheres to the ancient tradition of video games to prevent the player from killing children. When you hit them with a lightsaber, they absorb the impact of the blow, but don’t fall into Lego pieces like other enemies in the game. So naturally players combine young Anakin Skywalker and other kids from one part of the map to another to save time.

Twitch streamer Red Orb has dubbed the technique “Children’s Flight.” (opens in new tab) Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features a new combat system similar to character action games like Devil May Cry. You can hit enemies – or immortal children on your team, like Anakin – repeatedly in the air without falling back to the ground. This can be used to bridge gaps in the levels that you wouldn’t be able to jump over otherwise.
