Zelda Breath of the Wild guide: Trial of the Sword: Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 1 walkthrough

Plus crates, barrels and hidden items

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

Trial of the Sword: Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 1 is a battle between you and three bokoblins in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC. You don’t have to do much fighting, though, as you’ll see in our walkthrough below.

A note on Trial of the Sword’s crates and barrels

Before you leave any underground floor, make sure you smash or burn every crate and barrel you see. The contents are (mostly) random, but you might fight find arrows (alone, in bundles or even special ammo like fire arrows) as well as food like apples, fleet lotus seeds, mighty bananas, palm fruit, wildberries and a variety of mushrooms. We have a list of Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 1’s items in the “weapons and items” section at the end of this guide, so you won’t miss any.

Underground Floor 1 walkthrough

As you slowly approach the campfire, use the trees for cover to avoid being spotted. Grab a tree branch (or two) on your way just in case this trick doesn’t work perfectly.

Climb the large tree in the center of the room near the cooking fire. Pick up the bird eggs. Use your rune to create a remote bomb, then toss it straight at the fire. Wait until all three bokoblins notice it and move to investigate. A well-timed explosion will take them all out at once.

Collect the weapons and shield leaning against the log: a boko shield, a boko spear, a boko club and a woodcutter’s axe.

Use a remote bomb or tree branch as a torch to to light the large wooden crates on fire — this destroys them without damaging your weapons and cooks the food inside. Alternately, use the woodcutter’s axe to smash them — it’s got a high durability and can handle smashing crates.

Underground Floor 1 weapons and items

Nearly every underground floor in Trial of the Sword includes some combination of armor, weapons and food that you should collect before leaving and use in subsequent levels. Here’s what you can find in this underground floor.
