Hack of the Week for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild

Hack of the Week

Playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Here some tips to make your journey through Hyrule a little easier.


  1. Sell your gems.
  2. Cook and Sell Food (some sell for 490 rupee a skewer).
  3. Kill Guardians!  It takes some skill but the rewards are worthwhile.
  4. Use Your Amiibo for fun surprises.
  5. Gamble in Lurlin Village.


  1. Learning to jump and stop time to fire an arrow is a core mechanic. I defeated Vah Ruta, the Elephant Divine Beast, without knowing how to do that.  It makes many battles a lot easier.
  2. You can drop bombs when using the parasail, like your own personal airstrike. I love that.
  3. You can use your shield to deflect shots right back at enemies, kinda like hitting a baseball back at a pitcher.
  4. You can cut off the legs of guardians if you have a strong enough weapon.
  5. Elemental weapons (fire, ice) offset environmental effects like cold and heat.  You can even use fire weapons to melt giant ice formations in the mountains.

Bonus Tip: If you go to the main screen and select your profile you can see how many hours you have played Zelda. As of the time of this writing I am at 52 hours… No judgment!
