LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Upgrades Guide
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has a skill tree and a class upgrade system which help to a little flavor to the game's combat and allow you to feel a sense of progression that goes beyond simply working your way through each episode's story and searching for collectibles. This Upgrades Guide will help you decide what upgrades to invest your Kyber Bricks.
How to Upgrade
In order to upgrade your characters in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga you will need studs and Kyber Bricks. Studs are collected as you progress through the game and Kyber Bricks are special blue LEGO bricks you will acquire after completing certain objectives, meeting certain level requirements, or by finding them in the game's various hub sections. When you have collected enough studs and Kyber Bricks you need to go to the 'Upgrades' tab where you will be able to find every upgrade in the game separated by the various character classes.
