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.

Sequels typically, though not always, tend to try to be bigger than their previous entry. God of War Ragnarok certainly had massive expectations for it when compared to the 2018 game, which it has, at least for most people, managed to exceed.

Game length will come down to many factors, but we can help you estimate just how big of a time investment God of War Ragnarok will be depending on how you like to play games. Between difficulty settings, optional content, and more, here is a full guide on how many hours you can expect the final chapter for Kratos and Atreus in the realm of Norse mythology to last in God of War Ragnarok.

God of War Ragnorok: best skills in the game
Thor in God of War Ragnarok.

Even barehanded, Kartos is a force to be reckoned with. Starting off in God of War Ragnarok, he is far from unarmed, however. Picking up where the last game left off, Kratos retains his trusty Leviathan Axe, as well as his old Blades of Chaos, to hack, slash, and smash any gods or monsters that threaten him or his son. For whatever reason, though, he has lost all the skills with those weapons he picked up in his first Norse adventure.

Starting essentially from scratch, the skill trees in God of War Ragnarok will look familiar to players of the first game or really any similar RPG. Skills are broken up based on weapon or character and then into further divisions based on what type of skill they are. XP comes slow, especially in the early game, so knowing what skills will be the most useful is vital. Before you go picking a fight with Thor or Odin, check out the best skills to unlock in God of War Ragnarok.
