Datacards in LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga have replaced the Red Bricks found in most other LEGO games.
Similar to Red Bricks, Datacards are required to unlock cheats, but the big difference is that you can’t enter a code to get Datacards instantly. Instead, you have to find Datacard locations scattered across all nine episodes in order to toggle cheats like handy Stud multipliers or 'Big Head Mode'.
This guide will explain exactly how to get Datacards in LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga, and all Datacard locations.

How to get Datacards in LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga
Datacards are always located in hub areas in the Skywalker Saga. These mini open world regions are unlocked by progressing with the story across all three trilogies.
While using the Galaxy Map or a taxi to travel between planets and hubs, you can see if an area contains a Datacard if it has the symbol of one displayed in the description. You can also check by bringing up the pause menu at any time.
Look out for a golden glow while searching for Datacards, as they are the only collectible coloured like this. It makes them easier to identify in the environment, but can still be tricky to spot, as they tend to be floating in hard-to-reach areas.
If you get close enough to a Datacard, its symbol will appear on the map. You can then mark the symbol to create a blue path to its location. It’s highly recommended to do this even while following the instructions below, to make reaching the Datacard as easy as possible.
Each cheat costs 1 Datacard, and a varying amount of Studs. Cheats can be purchased in any order, so you don’t have to collect every Datacard if you only want certain ones.
To unlock a cheat with a Datacard, bring up the Holoprojector and go to the 'Extras' tab. Datacard cheats are at the very top, so just press right, then scroll to the cheat you wish to unlock. As long as you have enough Studs, you can now toggle that cheat on and off anytime while playing this save file.
