LittleBigPlanet 2 – Sackbot Information


All the info we know so far about sackbot, piled into a single, useful factfile

The basic wooden sackbot, is the template.

Players can choose weak spots on the sackbot

They can be programmed to be scared of heights

The can follow a recorded routine.

They can be given any costume sackboy has, making them look like a sackboy

You can have the “random costume” option to, works the same way as it does for sackboy.


If you want you can just copy the AI (logic) from one sackboy to another, saving time.

You can record you own sound as audio for the sackbots.

They can be changed size, making them giant or tiny.

Sackbots can be controlled by a direct / control seat.

You can make them harmful, electrified, flame…. and so on.

You can grapple sackbots


You can grab sackbots

They can travel through the “suction tubes”.

An obvious fact, but. Just like LBP1’s magic eyes. they will look at sackboy if near.

They can be set to follow a player

They have a trigger radius

If set to follow, they can get in vehicles with a player


Options include: costume; behaviour; monster head; hostile; awareness radius; and more (that has not yet been seen)

“its possible to spawn 20 or 30, the limit is defined by the thermometer” EDGE.

A good concept Mm used is about rescuing sackbots from a factory

Sackbots can be crushed

There are pre set behaviours for you to choose from

They can chase you (maybe thats the same as follow )


They have a circuit board aka microchip

They can be as intelligent as you want them to be

movesets include: robotic – zombified

zombie sackbots will chase after you arms stretched out (like zombies)

They can switch planes

you can set them to patrol a certain area


you can make them change behaviour, eg: a normal sackbot turns to a zombie if it see you.

they can jump

they can avoid danger

they can be actors in your films / cutscenes

sackbots can activate switches (like buttons or the lever switch)

“I read somewhere that you’ll be able to change the texture of the base Sackbot with materials from your inventory. I don’t know if it’s true though”

you can add decorations onto them

LittleBigPlanet 2,  will be released exclusively for PlayStation 3 this winter by Media Molecule.

    Can Sackbots be zombies and chase you without stretching theyre arms? and can sackbots kill Sackboys and Sackgirls?

      Yes, there is an option to set sackbots to “zombie mode” However, in zombie mode, sackbots can only follow you with arms stretched out. If you want them to chase you without stretching out arms, just set them to be “hostile” (they can go really close) but keep it to regular setting and NOT zombie mode. Then set it to follow you. So now, whenever you go within the radius, the sackbot will follow/chase you without stretching out his/her arms. Yes sackbots can kill sackboys and girls. You can set them to hit you with a weapon if they have one. You can also make them electrified or on fire. THis way, when they touch a sackperson, the sackperson will die 😦 Technically yes, sackbots can kill other sackbots. For example, a sackbot can pull a switch to crush another sackbot. It is technically death X( I am sorry, but i’m not sure about magentic keys on the sackbot. I hope this helps.

    Can Sackbots kill other Sackbots? and can you place an emitter and a magnetic key and all that other stuff on a Sackbot?

    the sackbot feature is truly amazing. I beleive that if you were to make it your size and give it a sackboy costume you could trick someone into beleiving it is an actual sackperson. 🙂
