The world of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is brimming with powerful weapons. However, among them, the five-shot bow stands out as a top-tier instrument of devastation. This article will guide you through the necessary steps to acquire this awe-inspiring weapon.
Encountering Lynels for the Five-Shot Bow
In the expansive universe of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, your journey might lead you to acquire a multi-shot bow. Though these are potent weapons, capable of launching multiple arrows at the cost of only one from your inventory, the five-shot bow raises the bar even higher.
One method to obtain the five-shot bow involves challenging the might of the Lynels, fearsome adversaries that roam the landscapes of Hyrule. Specifically, you need to seek out and vanquish the White-Maned or Silver Lynels. These formidable foes, upon defeat, often yield the Savage Lynel Bow – typically a three-shot variant. However, occasionally, they relinquish a modified version with the extraordinary five-shot feature.
The Lynel Gauntlet: A Test of Courage
For those seeking a guaranteed path to the five-shot bow, embark on the daunting task of defeating the Lynel Gauntlet in the Floating Coliseum situated in The Depths, beneath the original Coliseum (coordinates: -1139, -1262, -0499).
The gauntlet is comprised of five types of Lynels: Red-Maned, Blue-Maned, White-Maned, Silver-Maned, and the fearsome Armored Silver-Maned Lynel. It is the Armored Silver-Maned Lynel that will drop the prized five-shot bow. However, you must triumph over all five Lynels to get to this adversary.
Upon engaging the Armored Silver-Maned Lynel, you will first need to breach its armor before you can battle the beast in the usual manner. Employ a rock-breaking item, like a hammer, or a Bomb Arrow to fracture the armor. Once you’ve done this, you can proceed with the traditional Lynel combat tactics, such as timing perfect dodges for flurry rushes and aiming headshots to stun the Lynel. Upon stunning it, you can then mount the Lynel and deliver several slashes.
Enhancing Your Bow with Rock Octoroks
An alternative and somewhat less daunting approach to acquire the five-shot bow involves the Rock Octoroks found within the Eldin region. These creatures possess a hidden ability to polish and enhance weapons that you place before them. Begin by dropping any three-shot bow in front of a Rock Octorok as it begins inhaling. It will suck the bow into its mouth and then expel it, granting it a random enhancement in the process.
This random enhancement may be the coveted five-shot bonus. Repeat this process until you obtain the desired outcome.
Getting the five-shot bow in Tears of the Kingdom is undoubtedly worth the effort. The power and quantity of the arrows fired can turn even the most formidable of enemies into a minor inconvenience. Notably, the five-shot bow becomes even more powerful when combined with bullet time and increased damage through headshots.
Regardless of the method you choose, always remember to keep your health in check. When battling Lynels or traversing The Depths, it’s recommended to cook several meals with Sundelions to revive Link’s hearts, especially as hits from Lynels will corrupt them. Following these steps, you’ll soon have the formidable five-shot bow in your possession, elevating your gameplay to a whole new level in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
