How do I unlock the Scrap Collector class & skills?

Should you first start the original or prequel trilogy in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, you will always come across places where you need the Junk Collector class to get Kyberstones or other secrets.

To unlock the Scrap Collector class, including all three skills, as quickly as possible, you must play Episode 7: The Force Awakens. Like Episode 1 and Episode 4, this episode is available from the start.

After escaping the First Order with Poe and Finn, you'll take on the role of Rey, who falls under the Junk Picker class, on Jakku. During the mission, you have to search for scrap in a crashed Star Destroyer. During this section, you'll gradually learn all three Scrap Collector skills. Once you've completed the mission, you can select Rey at any time in Freeplay and use her Junk Picker skills.
