Nintendo has gifted players with the next free in-game item for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, distributed through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild News channel on Nintendo Switch.
After the first articles explained how you can befriend the dogs that you encounter or how to make Honey Candy, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has now talked about how players can use boomerangs in Link’s open-air adventure.
“This game has a large variety of weapons, including the boomerang. Have you tried throwing it by pressing the R Button?” Fujibayashi asks.
“Unlike other weapons, this weapon will circle around and return to your hand, just like a real boomerang (just don’t forget to catch it by pressing the A Button). You can even get creative and use it to distract your enemies.
“If you have the game and want to practice using the boomerang item, please accept a free one from us. If you start your game by using the link below, the weapon will appear in your game. Just make sure that you either have the game card inserted or the digital version of the game on your system.”
Nintendo once again adds that you must have obtained the paraglider before you can receive these items and that you may not be able to receive them at some in-game locations such as shrines and dungeons or on certain terrain.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide.
