Yiga Clan Hideout – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Yiga Clan Hideout is a location north of Gerudo Town in Breath of the Wild. You’ll need to infiltrate this camp as part of the quest to reach Divine Beast Vah Naboris, and it requires stealth to do so. It’s filled with powerful enemies who will one shot you on sight. Also, even if you’re a good fighter, being sighted locks all the doors anyway, so you’ll have to be a veritable ghost to make it through. But don’t worry, it’s actually much easier than it looks.
In order to enter the hideout, you must first make it through Karusa Valley. It’s not too difficult to get through here just watch out for Yiga Footsoldiers and Lizalfos. There will also be rocks rolling through the valley from time to time, so be on alert. Once you make it through, you’ll find a round room with large Yiga banners all around as well as several torches and fires in the middle of the room. Use one of the torches (or light your arrows on fire) in order to burn the banners. Behind some are useful items and a few Keese (the one-eyed bat things). One of them houses the entrance to the Yiga Clan Hideout.
Once inside the Yiga Clan Hideout, you’ll find yourself in a sort of warehouse area where guards are on patrol. This is the area where you’ll need complete stealth, which can be a bit tricky since it’s not difficult for the enemies to see you as you walk around. But who says you need to walk around on the ground? You can just climb the walls and move around the entire area that way, the enemies will never look up at you. Just work your way around the top, looking for places that stick out to stop and catch your breath. There are plenty of awnings and other platforms to do this. You may be tempted to drop down and collect the valuables in the area such as the rubies and sapphires just sitting around. But don’t worry, you won’t miss out on those (we’ll get to them shortly).
The door to the next area of the Yiga Clan Hideout is always maintained by one guard (this is the case for each room). It turns out that they really love Mighty Bananas. So just toss one in their line of sight, then drop behind them and head through the door.
As you continue through the Yiga Clan Hideout, you’ll come across a room with a treasure chest in the center and a bunch of targets, yet no other exit. Activate your Magnesis and use it on the wall to the right. It’s a secret door that will take you towards the final area.
Continue through the Yiga Clan Hideout where you’ll face Master Kohga (which we’ve guided for you here). Once he’s defeated, you can actually go back through the Yiga Clan Hideout, only this time there will be no enemies. Collect all the valuables you’ve missed and then continue on your merry way.
