Yooka-Laylee Butterfly Boosters are among the most useful collectibles in the game.
Like Power Extenders, they offer a permanent upgrade to your adventure (an extra segment of health) that comes in handy for the game’s many tricky boss encounters.
If you need more help, check out our Yooka-Laylee guide and walkthrough to find Pagies and other collectibles.
Hivory Towers Butterfly Accelerator Location
Once you have the ultimate flying ability that you will receive between worlds 4 and 5, return to the initial Shipwreck Creek area.
Between the opening area and the second one with the wastewater, there is an area above where the Butterfly Booster can be found.
Tribalstack Tropics Butterfly Booster Location
Expand the world and head towards the giant tower in the far corner. Go up the starting ramp and turn right.
Around the corner is a series of holes in the wall with moving platforms. Make your way through them…
…and the Butterfly Booster will be waiting for you at the end.
Glitterglaze Glacier Butterfly Booster Location
Once you have defeated the boss of World 2, return to the beginning of the Icymetric Palace, where a current of warm air appeared.
Use it to glide to the platforms above, which will take you to the Health Extender in the far corner.
Moodymaze Marsh Butterfly Booster Location
Expand the world and head to the area where there is a body of water with a horizontal pipe on its edge.
If you look towards the water on the right, you will see a block with it in it. To open it, float down, use Buddy Bubble, and use the powerful Sonar ability.
Doing so will open the block, release the Butterfly Booster, and destroy nearby enemies at the same time.
Do you need more help? Our Yooka-Laylee guide and walkthrough explains how the retro-style platformer works and how to defeat each boss. If you’re looking for collectibles, here’s where to find all the Mollycool locations, Ghost Writer locations, Play Coin locations, Butterfly Booster locations, Power Extender locations, and where to find the secret Pirate Treasure locations. In the meantime, our complete list of quiz answers will help you outsmart Dr. Quack.
Capital Cashino Butterfly Booster Location
Get the Mollycool from the level and transform into a helicopter. From where you start the stage, continue and you will reach a fountain with statues above.
Fly to the ceiling, high above there, and the Butterfly Booster will be waiting for you.
Galaxy Butterfly Booster Galleon Location
Expand the world and enter the golden building that has its entrance in front of the Velocity Terminal (this is the giant asteroid with the conveyor belt on the far left of the world).
You will see this building looking from Velocity Terminal. Fly towards him.
Inside, climb the tube to the center of the room filled with enemies and you will reach a closed wall of platforms. It’s pretty simple to navigate: first go down and hit the switch, flooding the wall with water, allowing you to swim past the floating box in the first section.
Continue doing this (you may have to swim “to” the screen after passing the first box to continue) to find a Pagie.
Continue up after this and you’ll find the Butterfly Booster at the top.
