Zelda Breath of the Wild: Can the Master Sword Break?

Million dollar question.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Breaking the Master Sword

Recommended Videos

The Master Sword is an iconic weapon in the Zelda games, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that it would make an appearance in Breath of the Wild. However, given that the weapon degradation system is such a big part of the game, some of you might be wondering if the legendary Master Sword is subject to breaking as well.

Unfortunately, the answer to that question is yes. If you use the Master Sword too much in Breath of the Wild, it will eventually break in a fight, and you won’t be able to use it. However, unlike other regular weapons, the Master Sword will actually ‘recharge’ and return to your inventory after a certain amount of time. So even if you do break it, you just have to pass enough time and you’ll get it back again. That said, it’s definitely best to be a bit more strategic with using your weapons, and it’s certainly wise to save that powerful sword for more intimidating foes.
