Breath of the Wild mastermind kills two Lynels without hitting the ground

Baby, you’re a firework

We’ve rounded up some of the most ingenious kills devised by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild players before, but this one takes the cake. A Reddit user called Nassi uploaded their impressive method of taking down not one, but two Lynel beasts ... and never sets foot on the ground to do so.

Nassi does it with some crafty use of bomb arrows and some stamina upgrading items. It helps to have a fully upgraded stamina meter as-is, but Nassi artificially inflates theirs with some fried greens dishes as needed. Other than that, it’s really just a matter of timing. Shooting bomb arrows at the ground creates a breeze which Link can glide into the air with, meaning he never has to touch the ground.

An airborne Link then gives himself a good vantage point for shooting some Lynel without fear — which is important, because those guys know how to deal some serious damage. That there happens to be two of the Lynels running around in the same area just happens to be Nassi’s luck, but they clearly know how to handle it.

The result is one heck of a fireworks display. It’s pretty astounding how Breath of the Wild continues to amaze and surprise us, nearly two months since it launched. Keep those absurd tricks coming, folks.
