Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Glitch Lets You Shoot Infinite Arrows

A recently discovered Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild glitch will allow Link to shoot infinite arrows, which can be an enormous boon for many players. The YouTuber Austin John is the one that discovered the glitch, and he even made a handy video to teach you how to do it too.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has become infamous in the weeks since its release for its punishing difficulty when it comes to being a Zelda game. Not only do most of Link’s weapons break on use, but you also can’t get hearts and more tools from cutting large patches of grass.

This makes picking up swords, clubs, shields, bows, and arrows a necessity after (and during) combat.

That being said, the Breath of the Wild glitch still requires you to put yourself in danger, and you need to be a good ways into the game to make it work. In order to make it work, you have to go to a particular area, where there are Bokoblin enemies on horseback.

Using the move Revali’s Gale (which you get after the first Divine Beast), you have to blast Link upwards, and then point the camera at the ground when you land.

When you land on the ground, as long as you keep the camera still, you can’t be damaged by arrows. This leaves you free to pick up all the ones the Bokoblins are shooting at you.

Apparently, the reason the Breath of the Wild glitch is even possible is because Nintendo doesn’t think it’s fair for you to get hit by things from offscreen. You’ll get hit by the arrows, but you won’t get damaged by them as long as you keep looking down.

If you want to see how to do the glitch for yourself, simply follow the video link above.
