Since the first LEGO game was released in 1997 (LEGO Island), LEGO-style games have been continuously improved in terms of gameplay and graphics. And with the release of the LEGO Star Wars series in 2005, players could finally play as their favorite Star Wars character in LEGO form. But, the first LEGO Star Wars games do not include every character from the Star Wars universe until TT Games is finally released LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga†
And even though this is LEGO style Star Wars game is missing some characters (from Solo and Rogue One), fans are more than happy with the current character pool. But, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has more than characters as players can fly a few too Star Wars‘most iconic vehicles. As with characters, however, each vehicle has a unique set of features that make it better than others, so players would do well to learn which one will take them to a galaxy far, far away.
The Ghost is a light freighter first featured in the mobile game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroesbut most fans will remember it was piloted by Hera Syndulla in the rebels animation series. This ship can fly under the radar of almost any Imperial starship, giving it its iconic name.
And although the version found in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga doesn’t have its unique stealth mechanics, but still deserves to be listed as one of the best vehicles. And that’s because it has several powerful laser domes plus two proton torpedoes. Players can unlock this ship by purchasing a Rumor for 30,000 Shiny Studs and completing the Ochi-Doke quest.
6 GNK Power Cruiser
The LEGO game series has always been known to create some of the funniest game scenes in the game industry, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is no different. The GNK Power Cruiser is one of the many non-canon ships in the game, as it is essentially a giant Gonk droid. But despite the hilarious design of the GNK Power Cruiser, it’s still an effective vehicle to use during the game.
This Gonk-inspired ship boasts a massive amount of HP, allowing specific missions to become a walk in the park. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have much firepower, so players will have to avoid using it for bounty-style missions. Players can obtain the GNK Power Cruiser by completing the Final Gonk questline.
5 Kylo Ren’s TIE Whisper
In spite of the Star Wars sequel trilogy that split the fan base due to some changes in the universe, they still introduced dozens of new ships that most fans couldn’t help but love. One such ship was Kylo Ren’s personal TIE fighter, which he used throughout the movies until Rey destroyed it in Ahch-To.
Into the TIE Whisper LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is perfect for space travel as it is fast and carries four powerful laser cannons, allowing enemy starfighters to work quickly. The main drawback to this vehicle (and why it isn’t ranked higher) is that it can be destroyed easily due to its limited health bar. Fortunately, players can use some cheat codes to increase their chances of survival.
4 Escape pod
Most players ignore the use of the Escape Pod because it is overshadowed by larger ships, especially those used by starfighters. And while some vehicles are slightly better than the Escape Pod, this unique vessel can be effective because of its small size. Its size makes the Escape Pod one of the fastest ships in the world LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga†
In addition, it also has a decent attack speed, even if the base damage is lower than other vehicles. Players wishing to use the Escape Pod must complete the “Escape Pod Cargo” quest and once completed they can be purchased for 35,000 studs.
3 Resistance transport pod
Star Wars fans will most likely recognize the Resistance Transport Pod from the iconic scene where Rose Tico and Finn piloted one to reach the planet Cantonica to find the infamous Master Codebreaker. And the LEGO version of this ship deserves a spot on this tier list because it has the same speed as the Escape Pod and the same firepower as other starfighters like the TIE Fighter.
Unfortunately, it suffers the same penalty as other pod-like ships, a small health bar. But the good news is that players don’t need to complete a hidden side quest to obtain it, as it is available early in the game.
The Y-Wing is one of Star Wars‘ most iconic bombers because it is in almost every Star Wars series and movies (except in the prequel trilogy). This vehicle features armaments found in starfighters and bombers, making it the best choice for the Alliance and New Republic Navy. And into the Y-wing LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga stays true to the source material, as it is one of the most versatile ships in the game.
As players can expect, the Y-Wing has two powerful ion cannons that can stun almost any ship, not to mention that it also has a proton torpedo. Players can obtain this powerful vehicle by completing the side quest “Winging It” in Yavin-4 (one of the best planets players can explore in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga†
1 Naboo Starfighter
The Naboo Starfighter is arguably the best vehicle in the world LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga because it has the best speed and damage output. This starfighter is quite manoeuvrable, making it ideal for use on asteroid-heavy missions like the one with Jango Fett.
In addition to its dual blaster cannons, it also has two proton torpedoes that can destroy almost any enemy ship. It takes some time to learn to use it correctly, but once players get the hang of it, they can get through most of the space battles in the game.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
