LEGO Star Wars : The Skywalker Saga – Run Run Runyip (Side Mission) Guide

Game Guides

Run Run Runyip is one of the many available optional side missions. It can be found and collected whilst on the planet Yavin 4.

This mission will involve capturing the Runyips

QUEST: Run Run Runyip
LOCATION: Yavin 4 – Great Temple (Rebel Base Room)

This mission can be collected by heading to the Great Temple over in Yavin 4, and making your way to the Rebel Base Room to speak with Mon Mothma

Mon Mothma will mention that the base is under attack by wild runyips. We will now be tasked with taking care of these runyips before they cause any more problems.

You can find these runyips just outside the base, there will be a total of 3 targets to find altogether. When you find one of them simply try to eliminate it and then capture it in order for it to complete towards completion.

Capturing the runyips will help Mon Mothma try to work out why they began attacking to begin with.

You can often find these runyips chasing various Rebels around the base, so make sure to keep an ear open for any nearby screaming.

Once all 3 runyips have been captured we can then report to Mon Mothma, who has some research results to share with us. Turns out the runyips are running wild due to some suspicious spore that has been driving them into a frenzy.

We will now be tasked with searching for any suspicious -looking plants that are causing the problem. Once we manage to find them, we then need to destroy them.

There are a total of 3 suspicious-looking plants to find and destroy altogether. These plants can be found around the base and are purple in colour.

One of the plants can be found on the wall of the base (1/3)

You can find another plant on the roof of the base (2/3)

The final plant can be found within the Temple Ruins (3/3)

Once you have successfully managed to find all 3 plants Mon Mothma will notice yet another plant appear. However, this one has just been planted so now is our chance to catch the culprit in the act.

You can catch the culprit over in the Temple Ruins area, by the archway. It appears to be a Bounty Hunter (Heinous Horticulturist)

Defeat the Heinous Horticulturist

Mon Mothma will then come running and we can complete the mission
