The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Cheats For Wii U

  1. Enhanced weapons, bows and shields.

    Beat the game once and a star will appear next to your save file. Any weapons, bows and shields that you receive after that point will have a random enhancement such as Durability Up or Attack Up.

  2. Weapons are useful for climate control.

    Fire swords will increase Link's ambient temperature and Ice swords will decrease Link's ambient temperature. Use this to your advantage when exploring high peaks and hot areas, respectively.

  3. Skip Blood Moon

    If you're tired of the Blood Moon respawning everything you kill, then you are going to love this. On a night where you can see that the Blood Moon is rising, take yourself to any shrine throughout the world and taking care to keep a close watch on your in game time, go in just before midnight. You can either wait until you think it's safe to leave again or just run through the shrine's puzzle and then leave. If enough time has passed the Blood Moon event will not have triggered and you can go about your business without worrying about pesky respawns until then next scheduled Blood Moon event.

  4. Get a free weapon slot without using any korok seeds

    Before pulling the mastersword from the pedestal in korok forest, make sure you have all weapon slots filled and it will automatically give you a free slot in your inventory for the master sword without using any seeds

  5. Turn rusty items into better items

    Take a rusty weapon or shield and find a Rock Octorok (the one that inhales and then spits an exploding rock at you). Drop your item on the ground and it'll suck up the item then glitter for a bit before abruptly spitting a better item out (at a very high speed). Be very mindful of your surroundings (Extreme heat, cliffs) so that you don't lose your new weapon/shield.

  6. Refilling your stamina while climbing walls, and climb in the rain

    On many wall surfaces, Link can jog for a brief moment before he decides to latch onto the wall and start climbing. By pressing B to let go of the wall and holding a direction that faces the wall, you can make Link move that direction for a short moment, letting him jog a bit and refill your stamina. He will then latch back onto the wall once more. Repeat the process to finish your climb or refill your stamina gauge. Most of these walls are set at most a 70 degree slope, so be careful around very sheer cliff walls. Any higher of a slope and you will fall. You can also use this trick to climb rainy slopes, but use the running animation to climb rather than the actual climbing mechanic.

  7. Infinite Sprinting (Whistle Sprinting)

    Sprinting while holding B will drain stamina, but pressing down on the D-Pad will make you whistle which is not a stamina consuming action. By tapping B over and over while holding down on the D-Pad, you will regain any missing stamina and keep up a running speed. Since you are refilling stamina, this allows for infinite sprinting. This does not apply to any other stamina consuming action.

  8. Arrow Farming (Pre-Patch)

    As you progress through the game, you may notice that you'll be running out of arrows a lot. Fortunately, there is a little trick you can do that will give a ton of arrows with no cost. All you have to do is find a group of bokoblins riding on horse-back and make sure they have bows. Get their attention, but don't kill them. Once they are aware of your presence, pan the camera up so that you are looking at Link from an overhead view. Now, just stand and collect. The bokoblins will continue to shoot at arrows at you, but will always miss as long as you have the camera in overhead view. You can get a hefty amount of regular arrows doing this with little to no effort and in a short amount of time.

  9. Eventide Island

    When you arrive at Eventide island for the first time if you step on shore it triggers a trial where you lose all your equipment. To easily get around this and keep some of your favorite weapons/items you can do the following. Before you step on shore toss some of your items onto the island (weapons work, I have not tried food items). Once you trigger the start of the trial the weapons will be laying there for you to reclaim. This makes defeating the Hinox much easier.

  10. Double your maximum fairies

    Fairy fountains will only spawn fairies when the amount of fairies in your inventory is at 2 or less, but when they appear they will not disappear unless you scare them away. This means that if you hold enough fairies in your hands to make the inventory counter go down to 2 then more will spawn in a few seconds, then you just need to put them back in your inventory and collect the others near the fountain. If you drop 1 fairy and hold 5 in your hands so your inventory counter is at 2, after waiting a few seconds 4 more will appear that you can get after you put the fairies in your hands away and rush up to catch the stray one. This will give you 12 instead of 6 as the maximum amount of fairies.

  11. Amiibo Rare Unlockables

    You can scan each Amiibo once per day. A few of them have rare items. Each time, you have a random chance of the Amiibo dropping its rare item. All of the Tunics are actually 3-part armor sets (Cap, Tunic and Leggings). Some items only appear after obtaining the Paraglider (including Epona) or after completing one Divine Beast dungeon. Note: Epona is guaranteed to drop the first time you scan SSB Link, but it only ever happens once per save game. You should only summon Epona if you have access to a Stable to keep her permanently.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Cheats For Nintendo Switch

  1. Change chuchu jelly type

    You can change chuchu jelly types by using different elements on them. Fire will get you red jelly, ice will get you white jelly, and lightning will get you yellow jelly. There are several weapons will elemental properties in the game that work well for this. Or you can roast/freeze chuchu jelly like you would food (drop in fire or freezing water) to get red/white jelly.

  2. Skip Rin Oyaa Shrine Puzzle

    To skip the puzzle, take the orb and stand in the middle of where the orb is supposed to go. Put the orb down and use the Stasis Rune to freeze it. Then, run up to the platform that rises up and wait for the rune to wear off. The orb will roll into it's place, raising the platform and thus, skipping the puzzle entirely.

  3. Eventide Island Made Easy

    On Eventide Island, if you drop things on the raft before stepping off of it onto the island, they will still be there after the cut scene. Use this to make clearing the island a breeze.

  4. Infinite Stamina While Climbing

    While climbing any uneven surface such as mountains, you can tap "B", while pushing up, on any surface at or below 80 degrees. This will cause Link to begin running, allowing your stamina bar to refill on an edge you could otherwise not stand on. Just tap "B" right after link grabs the wall/cliff face and slide along this slope until your stamina refills on long climbs.

  5. Master Sword Beam

    A little secret in the game once you get the master sword, is that when you attempt to throw the blade, you will instead throw a beam out at full health. This is especially useful against Keese and Guardians because the beam isn't affected by gravity.

    Contributed by: lvl99link 

  6. Infinte Sprinting Without Depleting Stamina

    Sprint forever by holding the "whistle" button (down) and pressing the "B" button repeatedly. Link will sprint forever and never tire. This is slightly slower than regular sprinting, so alternating between the two in a way that balances the stamina circle is the best method.

  7. Easy Arrows (Pre-Patch)

    To get a lot of arrows easily, find a relatively flat area with a few Bokoblin Archers on horseback, like south of the Tenah Ko'sah shrine in the Tabantha region. Get them to notice you, then angle the camera to a top-down view. If done right, the archers will shoot all around you, but never actually hit you. You can easily farm hundreds of arrows this way with no damage after a few in-game hours.

  8. Easily tame horses

    If you shoot a horse with an ice arrow and approach it from behind, you can mash A when it comes out, and mount immediately, then simply mash L to tame your horse.

  9. Delaying Bloodmoon

    Normally once conditions for Blood Moon are met, the Blood Moon will rise upcoming midnight gametime, regardless of you pass time via bed or fire. However, the scene will not happen while you are in a Shrine, thus will occur the following midnight. So if you want delay Blood Moon to the following day, Just go into any Shrine and wait for midnight to pass. This can be done repeatedly so you do the game with no Blood moons at all.

  10. Easy Arrows (Post Patch)

    To the west of Eventide Island is a small island with a pool in the middle. Use Magnesis to pull up a chest with 10 arrows, then save your game before reloading that save. The chest will respawn, allowing you to get more arrows. Repeat until you have what you need.

  11. Prevent Star Fragments from Disappearing

    Star Fragments disappear come morning. Sit by a campfire until night to skip morning/daytime to make it night again, and the Star Fragment won't disappear. This allows you more time to track down and pick up the Star Fragment.

  12. Infinite Master Sword Re-Charge (Master Sword Trials Only)

    Whenever you are using the Master Sword, and the "Low on Energy" warning appears. Fast travel to Korok Forest, and start the Master Sword trials, then while in the trial quit and cancel out back to the Korok Forest. The Master Sword should be fully recharged.

    Contributed by: MacrossSkullOne 

  13. World Reset (Pre-Patch)

    You'll need to have access to one uncompleted Divine Beast and Trial of the Sword at least in one of the two modes. Enter trial of the sword, warp to a Divine Beast (not activate the last terminal after the Blight battle), go to exterior, and warp to any shrine/medallion. Dog chests, Labyrinth chests, DLC chests and unique weapons chests ( champions and hylian shield), and minibosses will respawn every time you warp. This glitch also makes korok seeds re-obtainable after every warp. It will also affect the other file (normal or master) as long as you don't close the game completely.

  14. Updrafts Anywhere

    This is fairly simple to accomplish. Simply take a Spicy Pepper (some types of mushroom also work) and light it on fire. Anything from a torch to a fire arrow to a Flameblade will work. As it cooks, it will create an updraft that Link can use to get to higher areas that are previously unaccessable, whether from stamina limits or other limitations. It can also work with 4 or 5 wood clumped together, but it is more resource intensive.
