Zelda Breath of the Wild guide: Trial of the Sword: Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 6 (Stone Talus)

Using the environment to defeat the Stone Talus

In Trial of the Sword: Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 6, you’ll face your first sub-boss in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s The Master Trials DLC. There’s nothing here except a stone talus and some things to help you fight it. In this guide, we’ll show you how to use your weapons and the items conveniently placed around Underground Floor 6 to defeat the stone talus.

Underground Floor 6 walkthrough

To start the fight, run to the right of the room. You’ll find two explosive barrels behind a tree. These will deal a fair amount of damage to the talus and might knock it down.

There’s one more explosive barrel behind the next tree you come to traveling counterclockwise. After that, the next tree has two metal crates you can magnesis and turn into weapons. You’re probably not going to defeat the talus this way.


Now’s the time to pull out your strongest two-handed weapon — like the spiked boko bat from Beginning Trials: Underground Floor 5. Climb up on top of the talus, then lock onto the talus’ ore deposit and hold down Y. Just keep spinning and hitting until it drops.

Underground Floor 6 armor and weapons

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. This one doesn’t, though.
