Zelda: Breath of the Wild Side Quests

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Side Quests Guide to help you complete all the possible side-quests in the game and earn different rewards.

Scattered all across Breath of the Wild’s massive open-world are LoZ: BotW side quests. Side quests in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are received from various NPCs with a text box over their heads.

One important thing to note about Zelda: Breath of the Wild Side Quests is that not every optional quest is available right from the start of the game. In order to unlock some of them, you’ll have to progress through the game and even complete some dungeons.
