Can you believe it’s been over two months since the release of the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? While it might seem like all of the game’s secrets have already been unearthed, from time to time we’re reminded that there is probably a lot more to discover.

The most recent glitch, found by YouTuber versat13, occurs when there are too many arrows present on screen at once, causing the game to glitch out in several ways. Not only does it remove parts of Link’s body, but it also gives you the ability to duplicate items; even the Master Sword. In order to produce this glitch, versat13 befriended a group of Bokoblins, dropped a bunch of three-arrow bows at their feet, and let them go to town, causing a barrage of arrows to be fired at once.


The most interesting occurrence is when Link drops his newly duplicated Master Sword. Instead of landing on the ground like most items, the Master Sword shoots up to the sky in a beam of blue light with the test “The Master Sword has returned to the forest.” At some point during the game’s development, it must have been permitted to drop the Master Sword but later removed.

What do you guys think? How many more surprises do you think will be discovered in Breath of the Wild? Let us know in the comments below.
