Fastest way to farm Studs in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

In real life, the stud Lego pieces are kind of useless. However, in every single Lego game, including Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, they are perhaps the most important ones to collect. Ever since the first game, Studs have been repurposed into the game’s currency instead of using something like gold or coins. But the developers didn’t tune their economy to follow realistic conversions. No, in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga you will need to collect millions, perhaps even billions, of studs depending on how many of the game’s extras you want to unlock.

Collecting billions of, well, anything can sound so overwhelming that you might not even want to attempt it. If this is your first Lego game, then we understand where you’re coming from, but the fact is The Skywalker Saga gives you plenty of tools to make your Stud collecting go substantially faster than you might think. Without knowing these tips, though, you could easily spend more than 10 times longer than necessary rounding up these little plastic disks. If you want to know the absolute fastest way to earn Studs in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga so you can unlock everything without grinding, check out these vital tips.

How you earn Studs and the different types

Let’s get the basics out of the way first. You earn different colored Studs in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga from many different sources. The most common, and unavoidable, way to earn them is to simply fight and defeat enemies. Every enemy you slice, blast, punch, or otherwise defeat will drop a certain amount of studs based on your current multiplier that increases the longer you keep your combo going.

Another way to easily grab some extra Studs is to just break everything. Any destructible object in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, of which there are many in just about all environments, will drop some studs once broken.

Studs can also just appear in the world, either as rings during flying missions where you can fly through the center to collect them, or just in lines along the ground or littered on platforms while on foot.

As far as the different colors of Studs are concerned, there are white, yellow, blue, and purple. The rarity, and thus value, increase in that respective order. White studs are worth 10, yellow worth 100, blue 1,000, and purple an insane 10,000 per Stud.

Get the Stud upgrades first

Now for the most important step: Stud upgrades. To make the most Studs, you’re going to have to spend some, but the return on investment will be way way more in your favor. The most important upgrades are going to be the different levels of Stud multiplier upgrades you can find in the Extras section of your menu. Scroll down until you see the Stud multiplier upgrades where you can buy a 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, and finally, 10x Stud multiplier upgrade. These are self-explanatory on the surface but are actually even better than you might first assume. You need to buy them in order, obviously, but when you go from 2x to 4x, as long as you have them both active, you aren’t just upgrading from all studs being worth twice as much to four times as much, their effects will stack. By the time you hit the maximum of 10x Stud multiplier, you’ll be drowning in Studs like you wouldn’t believe, though that will take some time to afford on its own.

The other vital Stud upgrade is a Core upgrade called Attract Studs. This just makes the radius around your character in which a Stud needs to be to be pulled in and collected automatically larger. It might not seem super important, but it will save a ton of time running around trying to grab Studs, which will disappear if you can’t get to them in time too. It will make your farming just go that much faster.

Best Stud farming spots

With all your upgrades ready, or as many as you can get to start with, we can now move on to the best Stud farming areas in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The first, and most notable online, is in the Federal District area of Coruscant. This is an easy one for a few reasons. First, you can unlock this zone in Episode 1, meaning you don’t have to get far into any of the trilogies to reach it, although you will need to at least go through part of Episode 2 to get the Walkers you’ll need for this method, or more ideally a Rancor from Episode 6. You could also do this same method on Bespin in Cloud City.

Once you pick your spot, and have access to either a Walker or the Rancor character, mount up and just start rampaging through the city, running over every breakable object in sight. The Walker moves pretty quickly, but the Rancor is faster and still breaks objects by running into them. Run around the entire map, and by the time you circle back most of the objects will respawn, letting you crash through them again to gain infinite money for no effort.

A second known Stud farming area is on Hoth in the Echo Base Escape mission. You need to do the actual mission again since this specific area isn’t accessible in Free Play. After you go through the main battle with Luke, you will switch to Han inside the base. Before you reach your first combat encounter with Snowtroopers, you will pass by two broken doorways on either side of the tunnel. As it turns out, shooting these doors will cause Studs to drop … infinitely. This means you can set up your character to face a door, rig your controller to constantly shoot, and let it idle as you gain infinite Studs while you go about your business.

Between these two options, you will never need to grind for Studs in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga again.

First Star Wars Jedi: Survivor trailer features dual-lightsaber combat, open-world teases
Cal Kestis with BD-1 droid on his shoulder.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is launching on March 17, 2023, for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PC. The action-adventure game received an impressive trailer during The Game Awards that showed off several new features and teased some potential open-world aspects.
Survivor takes place five years after 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, continuing the adventures of Cal Kestis and his droid pal BD-1. Cal is no longer a young Padawan and is now a full-blown Jedi. The much larger scope of the game seems to reflect that change.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor - Official Reveal Trailer
Combat is notably evolved in the trailer, as Cal can now freely use a dual-lightsaber stance in battle. Later, we see him enter “cross guard” stance as he takes down droids with heavy, two-handed slashes. EA tells Digital Trends that the goal of the sequel is to give players more agency when it comes to their playstyle.
Traversal plays a large role in the clip too. In addition to swinging around via grappling points, Cal is seen mounted on animals. He’s shown riding the back of a four-legged creature and using a winged one like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s glider. The clip seems to imply that the game’s planets might be more open-ended than Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s, as one shot shows Cal peering out over a gigantic vista. EA notes that the sequel is still largely a Metroidvania-inspired title where Cal gets new abilities over time.
Cal has a new human companion this time named Bode Akuna. In one clip, we see Bode flipping over Cal’s back to attack an enemy with a combo move.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was built with current-generation consoles in mind, with ray tracing being a major focus. It appears to be a graphically impressive showcase that features more dynamic lighting and flashy lightsaber effects. The adventure won’t launch on PS4 or Xbox One, but it’ll be available for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC on March 17, 2023.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor release date pops up on Steam ahead of Game Awards

The release date of the highly anticipated Star Wars game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor leaked on the game's official Steam page.
A Steam Page for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor went live with this release date information on Monday morning, seemingly ahead of a heavily rumored appearance at The Game Awards. The store page description reveals more details about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor as well as its Deluxe Edition, which contains cosmetics that make protagonist Cal Kestis look like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo and the pre-order bonus with a costume, Lightsaber, and Blaster based on Obi-Wan. 

The "About This Game" section also provides more details on the game. Narratively, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor's Steam page explains that "Cal is driven to make a stand during the galaxy’s darkest times -- but how far is he willing to go to protect himself, his crew, and the legacy of the Jedi Order?" On the gameplay side of things, new Force abilities, Lightsaber fighting styles, and enemies to take down are teased. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor looks like it will be a galaxy-trotting adventure like its predecessor the description hints that there will be lots of planets to explore and that they'll be bigger and have more secrets than the ones in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
EA and Respawn Entertainment have been relatively quiet regarding Star Wars Jedi: Survivor since announcing the game in May, so it's exciting to get a lot of new information about the game like its sooner-than-expected release date. If the rumors are true, this may have deflated the hype from one of The Game Awards 2022's big reveals.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be released for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on March 15, 2023.
