New Zelda: Breath of the Wild trick lets you disarm a Lynel
Take those Lynels down a peg
Lynels are some of the toughest enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so naturally players want every advantage they can get when facing them. If you’re really struggling, you might want to take note of a new trick discovered by Twitter user @zelda_watchan. This trick removes a Lynel’s weapon completely, leaving them helpless and defenseless, as demonstrated in the video below.
As you can see, once their weapon is removed, the Lynel doesn’t even attempt to fight back. @zelda_watchan was apparently able to accomplish this by luring the Lynel over to Gerudo Town, then getting kicked out of the town for wearing Link’s traditionally male clothing. This event triggers a small glitch which causes the Lynel’s weapon to disappear.
Apparently, this method affects other enemy types as well, but only the Lynel seems to become so timid without its means of attack. Almost makes you feel bad for the thing!
