If you want to learn new moves in Yooka-Laylee, then you’re going to need to purchase them from Trowzer, the traveling salesman. Trowzer is a snake that Yooka and Laylee meet early in their adventure, and he can trade you new moves—like Slurp Shot and Lizard Leap—in return for Quills, which are found around the various worlds that make up Yooka-Laylee. In this article we’ll detail every location that you can find Trowzer in, that way you can purchase all of his sweet moves and unlock Yooka and Laylee’s full arsenal of skills.
The first time that players meet Trowzer is in Shipwreck Creek, the aptly named location that Yooka and Laylee call home. The slithering salesman can be found by a locked gate, where he’ll introduce the idea of Quills and collecting them. Players will have to find 10 Quills to obtain the Tail Twirl power, which they can then use to collect the items need to open up the gate that leads to Hivory Towers.
Players can find Trowzer in Hivory Towers next, where he’ll be busy talking on his cellphone, which has a way of ringing whenever you’re around. Here you can learn your next move, Reptile Roll, after obtaining the first Pagie, hidden atop Capital B’s golden statue.
Next up players can find Trowzer in the first world, Tribalstack Tropics. His location is a bit tougher to locate this time around. Once you enter the world, head forward and look for Duke’s Temple, which is located in the center of the level. Use Reptile Roll to reach the second story, where you’ll find Trowzer relaxing next to a pillar in the center of the temple. You can purchase three moves from Trowzer this time around, including Slurp Shot, Sonar Shot, and Buddy Slam.
Players can also find Trowzer hiding in Glitterglaze Glacier, the second world that they travel to. Here they should look for him near the Hoops Challenge, which is just east of Vendi’s location. He’ll have two moves for sell in here—Slurp State and Lizard Leap—so be sure to grab them before heading back out of the level to Hivory Towers.
Once back outside in Hivory Towers, make your way to the Archives and use the Slurp Shot power to unlock the Archives by activating a button on the door. Head inside and talk to Trowzer in the left-hand corner at the back. Here you can learn Bubble Walk.
Next, players can find Trowzer within Moodymaze Marsh. He’s hiding out near Vendi once more, so once you find her, simply look for the slithering salesman nearby. In this world players can purchase the moves Sonar ‘Splosion and Lizard Lash. Once you’ve found all the Pagies that you can inside the marsh, head back into Hivory Towers and look for Trowzer on the way towards Capital Cashino. Speak to him to get Camo Cloak.
Yooka-Laylee’s fourth world is also ripe for new moves, and players can look for Trowzer near a set of Corplet Statues, which are pretty easy to spot inside Capital B’s casino. Once you’ve found him, chat with him to learn that he has a new move, Reptile Rush, up for sale.
Once you have Reptile Rush, exit Capital Cashino, and then look for Vendi just outside, in Hivory Towers. You’ll find Trowzer relaxing nearby. Talk to him to get Flappy Flight.
The final world in Yooka-Laylee also holds the final move for players to learn and acquire. To add this move to your arsenal, head into the world and look out for Trowzer, who is once again hanging around Vendi.
Players can talk to Trowzer in Galleon Galaxy to acquire the move Sonar Shield, which is the final evolution of Sonar Shot. It’s a really useful skill that will let players move through gas and lasers.
