Some Zelda: Breath of the Wild players have been cheating shrines and found other ways to traverse through the mini-dungeons. Meanwhile, other fans have been fighting lynels without even touching the ground.
One Netizen Has Been Cheating Shrines In Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
Shrine puzzles in BotW are scattered all around the world and reward Link with useful orbs, which he can use in exchange for extra hearts or stamina. However, in order to get it, they must first undergo trials, which can take up a lot of time. Some players have decided to skip the normal methods and have found their own ways to reach the Sheikah at the heart of the shrines instead.
According to Kotaku, there is a method several fans use known as shrine skips, which exploit the glitches and physics of the game. Netizen Adrylek was able to find a way through an apparatus shrine by manipulating bombs and using the shield surf technique. He has also tackled other shrines in a similar way by using shield surfing as his main way to bounce around the field.
However, his methods involve precise timing and is easy to miss. Those who prefer to skip the whole shrine challenges can watch his various videos on the net and try to study them. Then again, all that precision takes timing to master and might take as much time as actually completing a quest in itself.
Fighting Two Lynels Without Touching The Ground
Incidentally, other players have been making some impressive feats during combat. Polygon shares that Reddit user Nassi took on two Lynel beasts without touching the ground. He was able to pull off this little stunt with the crafty use of bomb arrows and stamina upgrading items. Taking on Lynels unprepared could easily lead to death but taking on two of these beats in the air is another challenge in itself.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild allows players to cheat shrines and do other similar things by the use of its impressive physics. Those who want to pull off their own stunts can get a copy of the game on the Nintendo Switch.
