Pick up the bow and 20x Arrows before you start the trial.

1. Once you reach the first construct enemy, a prompt will appear telling you how to use the bow. Press and hold the ZR button to pull out your bow.

2. You can strafe with your bow out with the left analog stick. Target the enemy’s head with your right analog stick and let go of ZR to hit it with an arrow.

3. This will complete the first step of the trial. The next phase involves striking the heads of three enemies.
