Skywalker Saga Unlocking Darth Maul’s Scimitar

LEGO Star Wars Skywalker features tons of content that you can potentially play for a month or so. You’ve got at least 380 characters to unlock, buy some of the best skills and upgrades, obtain capital ships and if you’re still bored then farm the studs to get rich and buy anything you’d want in the game. Most of the features are unlockable and players will need to go extra mile for it. Similar to the unlocking method of Palpatine, Darth Vader, Qui Gon Jin, and even Vader’s Tie Fighter, players too can unlock Darth Maul’s Scimitar ship, which is his signature flying craft from the franchise. So, our guide will cover how to unlock Darth Maul’s Scimitar in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

Darth Maul’s Scimitar is the second ship available in Theed. This unique ship is one of the finest starships among many others in the game. The Scimitar starship can be obtained in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, albeit there are few conditions in unlocking it.

Now, this ship requires you to either have a specific character for the task, or you can disguise a hero character to fit the task. An impersonation, or incognito if you will, is required to obtain access to the side expedition or mission, which ultimately unlocks Darth Maul’s Scimitar. In order to commence, the players should have unlocked Theed on Naboo in the game. Naboo will be unlocked and free to explore in Free Play whenever you play through the story in the previous trilogy sequel.

Dressing Up In Royal Guard Uniform

So in order to achieve and unlock Darth Maul’s Scimitar, you are required to complete or look for a particular mission to complete in Theed, namely the Hangar Bout Shooting Gallery challenge. Players can start this challenge by speaking to the Royal Theed Guard office in the Theed Hangar. On the subject of challenges, consider reading our Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Level Challenges guide.

Although, he will only converse with you if you’re dressed in a Royal Guard uniform. Players can get this uniform by retreating back to the hangar entrance as a Hero character and grasping the required items at the entrance.

You can obtain this uniform by going back to the hangar entrance as a Hero character and grasping the necessary items at the entrance. Although, you can also wish to play as Captain Typho, who already has the uniform, which will also be acceptable. As you converse with the Royal Guard, a bullseye will appear, and you can commence the challenge.

Get Captain Panaka Character

So to get a specific side character, you simply need to play through this rather quick side mission given to you by captain Panaka in the Theed Palace. Captain Panaka and Captain Typho are the prime characters you need to talk to in order to unlock Darth Maul’s Scimitar because they can speak to the Palace Guard to unlock the shooting gallery door.

Accepting The Mission Battle Droid Beatdown

Now you need to go and beat down the remaining battle droids, and the dear captains will join your ranks. After knocking down all the robot battle droids, you need to go back to Captain Panaka. You can use this mission to unlock Captain Panaka and the Attack of Clones mission to unlock Captain Typho.

However, gamers can use any other character in this game and wear a character Hero class character as a disguise which allows you to discover shooting range quicker.

Then finally, the actual site mission for the ship in question is found at the landing pad. You can even use Captain Panaka if you got him, or you can select a hero character to disguise for the mission.

All the required items are found at the location, so it is the fastest way to get the ship if that is your ultimatum. Either way, if you decide to do this, you simply need to shoot at some targets, and you get the ship as a reward, as simple as that.

This shooting gallery has five droid targets that appear for a limited time, then go back down for a few moments before coming back up. Players need 2,500 points to earn gold and unlock Darth Maul’s Scimitar. Each droid is worth 100 points, so a minimum of 25 need to be struck to unlock the ship.

The finest characters in the Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga for the shooting gallery are the ones that have a quick and high-speed fire rate. Scoundrels, Heroes, and some of the Villains are excellent for quickly destroying the target.

There it is, everyone, all set and done.

Even if it takes a few or many attempts to obtain gold, players will still receive rewards for silver and bronze. After getting over 2,500 points, you have successfully unlocked Darth Maul’s Scimitar, albeit it still requires  100,000 Studs to be purchased. Darth Maul’s Scimitar is a moderate-sized starship with a very rapid and quick rate of fire, so it’s very beneficial for enemy confrontation while exploring stellar areas, areas of space in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
