Here are some of the newly discovered Lego The Hobbit glitches.

Note that these can of course get patched by Traveller’s Tales Games at any time (although they have a bad habit of rarely fixing issues). But you might encounter the here-under listed glitches for yourself in the meantime.

    Lego The Hobbit Glitches

    Play As A Hawk Glitch

    Location: In the Middle-earth Hub.

    Glitch Description: In the open world area the game can accidentally let you play as the hawk who flies you from place to place on the map. How to trigger it? If you’re using fast travel on the map, immediately when the hawk starts going up in the air hold the Y button on Xbox / Triangle button on PlayStation / X button on Wii U to change characters… at which point you’ll die and come down to the ground to find you’re turned into the Hawk with Bilbo still in his talons! 😀

    The solution: The obvious fix for this glitch is to quit the game from the pause menu and restart the savefile you’re in.

    Here’s the full glitch video:

    Guide Studs Glitch

    Location: Go to multiple places on the map.

    Glitch Description: For example, when attempting to go to Laketown, the guide studs can lead you to some place you don’t know, in this case with no way to get out of the boat in the direction the game is pointing you.

    The solution: Turn off the previous waypoint before setting your next fast travel waypoint on the map, otherwise the guide studs will mess up where to go.

    Here’s the full glitch video:

    Plate Thrown Off-screen Glitch

    Location: On “That’s What Bilbo Baggins Hates”.

    Glitch Description: When you get through the first few sets of dwarves, then when the plate is thrown to the last set of dwarves it is thrown off-screen and you cannot continue. Not even restarting the level or the entire game helps, and trying it with a 2nd player doesn’t stop the glitch from happening either.

    The solution: Change the screen resolution to something smaller. For example on a laptop you can change the screen resolution from native 1680x… to 1024x… which will give you a little bit of a “black border” during the game, but the plate will not fly off the screen anymore!

      I had the issue up until just recently. When you first go into that first area with the dark stairs, There is a minikit to the left of the bars you have to jump up to open the door. Go up to the top bar, then go left. You are not able to see the minikit unless you pan the camera left. Hope this helps!

      Glitching on a PS3 in ‘Climb the trees’, when the four climb the first tree, it doesn’t tip over to join Gandalf’s tree, help, can’t go any further as in story mode

    • Robert

      Do you mean in the first level before the mining with Bofur? In that case, let the second player drop out before you enter the mine. That worked for me! 🙂

      Select the ring in the “item tab” of your character. So hold X on the wii u controller. After you have selected the ring, Bilbo holds it and you can press A so he will wear it.

      Me and my brother were playing the white orc boss battle early on where Thorin gets his oakenshield and stuff. Suddenly he just got stuck on a ledge after the second time we finished the QTE’s. after that, we fluffed about a bit with some buddy up stuff, and somehow my brother threw me like 40 metres up in the air. I then got up on the edge where the dwarves and orcs were fighting, and I ran out of the map and died, before respawning back on the map edge. I then jumped back down to the level. We managed to pull off the buddy up throw once more, but I didn’t reach the edge the second time.

      Plate glitch still happens no matter what resolution i set it on. I’m f*cked. If someone has another solution I’m all ears.

    • MD

      This solution doesn’t w0rk no matter what resolution i set it on. Any other ideas?

      incase anybody wants still wants to know this information:

      If you hold Triangle and select the equip menu, then you should should be able to select the ring with (x), Then exit the equip and character menu, then Circle when he’s not interacting with anything else and still equipped. (Works for me every time. I use/used the PS3 version, Use the corresponding buttons for whichever system you’re using.) Hopefully that works for you too.)
