The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Aiming the Bow

Recommended Videos

If you were lucky enough to pick up a bow during the early hours of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll be able to start taking out enemies from afar. First off, you have to equip the bow for Link. Simply bring up your menu and go to the Bow and Arrows tab. Choose the bow you want to equip, and select the Equip option.

When you’re out in the field, hold the ZR button to aim the bow. Releasing the button will cause Link to fire off an arrow. If you want to back out of aiming your bow to save your arrow, simply press the B button while aiming to start dashing. Link will put his bow down, and you won’t have to waste any arrows from there. Bows and arrows will initially feel a little weak when fighting enemies, but they can be extremely helpful if you’re low on health, and you need to pick off enemies from range in order to remain safe.
