Nintendo has distributed another free in-game item to those playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, available through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild News channel on Nintendo Switch.
After early articles explained how you can befriend the dogs that you encounter, how to make Honey Candy, mucking around with the boomerang, and tips on how to shield surf, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has now provided tips on keeping warm with the Fire Rod in Link’s open-air adventure.
“The game classifies the Fire Rod as a weapon, so you’d be excused for mostly using yours to defeat bad guys. Actually, though, the Fire Rod has way more uses than that!” Fujibayashi explains.
“Swinging one of these magic wands will send balls of fire bounding across the landscape, and their fiery power will also keep you nice and warm if you hold one or carry it on your back.
“If you’d like to try it out, please accept this in-game gift of one Fire Rod. The item will appear in your game if you open it using the link below. Just make sure that you either have the game card inserted or the downloadable version of the software installed on your console.”
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.
