Cheat Codes for Darth Vader

Cheat Code to unlock Darth Vader can only be used if the player plays through a story mode. There is also a mumble mode in the Skywalker Saga. The player will have to spend studs, and then he will get the option to unlock code in the Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga. Also, consider reading our LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga Studs farming guide.

The player will pause his game and move to the last tab. Over here, he will write the code “WROSHYR.” This code will not unlock Darth Vader; rather, it will unlock the Lord Vader character, a special holiday version. 

After unlocking this holiday version, the player can unlock the original Darth Vader after completing the “Episode VI- Return of the Jedi.” He will also have to complete “Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back” and “Episode IV- A New Hope.” 

The player will move to the original trilogy of the Star Wars Saga, where the most powerful Sith Lord is Darth Vader. 

Earn Studs And Purchase Darth Vader

The player needs around 200,000 studs to purchase Darth Vader. The player will have to earn all the 17 levels of the True Jedi status by collecting many studs, and once all the studs are collected, they fill up Jedi. 

There are many ways you can collect studs. The player can solve puzzles, smash open different stuff or locate secret rooms. The player will have to run through each level again on free play and kill everything in the way, which will make you earn more studs. Players can complete other challenges and win a few Mos Espa pod races to earn more studs. While you’re at it, here are some Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga classes you can take.

Most of the time, players don’t know that they can lose some studs by going through specific events. There are two mistakes and glitches through which a player can lose a huge amount of studs. If the player falls down a pit, he will lose about 1000 studs, and if the player gets hit by a blaster, he will lose 2000 studs. Here’s how the player can upgrade his skills

Lastly, make sure you are not playing in the normal mode of Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga but a story mode. 

Defeat Emperor Palpatine 

To defeat Emperor Palpatine in Episode VI, the player again has to be playing the Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga in a story mode and save himself. Before reaching Emperor Palpatine, the player will complete all of “Return of the Jedi, Episode VI” and unlock the fifth chapter: Jedi Destiny. 

The player will have a boss fight against Emperor Palpatine. The Emperor Palpatine will hit the player with all his force of lightning, but the player can save himself by jumping on each hit and then chasing the Emperor Palpatine. Keep repeating and attacking him either as Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker until he is defeated. The player needs no weapons. 

Darth Vader will be immediately unlocked after the player has completed “Jedi Destiny.”

In the bonus room, there is a door named “Episode IV.” The player can only build that door if he has completed all the past levels successfully; if not, he won’t be able to find the door in front of him.
