And now, for some Breath of the Wild trickshots

Don’t hurt ’em!

While some of the world has moved on to Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, for others, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still providing hours of entertainment and distractions. Case in point: One Japanese player has been uploading some tremendous Guardian kills on Twitter that you need to see.

@smaho_neko is a Breath of the Wild-focused account that regularly posts clips of themselves absolutely owning Guardians in ways I didn’t even know were possible. My favorite has to be this footage where Link deftly avoids a laser, jumps on a bomb, explodes into the distance, and, while gliding, finishes the enemy off with an arrow. Link ends up falling into a cliff, but damn if he doesn’t look cool doing it.

But there’s more! This next clip takes the opposite approach; Link is very far away, but still close enough to pull aggro. When the Guardian blasts him, Link deflects and does a bomb jump — once again, toward the enemy — so he can see the reflected laser run its course.

We’re not done yet. Perhaps the most impressive piece of BOTW parkour is the following video, where Link backflips and then shoots an arrow through a window to hit the Guardian.

Almost makes me feel bad for the Guardians. It’s like they never stood a chance. In any case, @smaho_neko is a good follow even if you have moved on to Age of Calamity — the intrepid player is posting impressive clips of themselves doing work in that game, too.

The next level of puzzles.
