Breath Of The Wild Player Discovers Crazy Master Sword Ability After Nearly 5 Years

After nearly five years, a player has discovered a crazy Master Sword ability in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Master Sword in The Legend of Zelda series is, well, legendary. It is pretty much the sword of all swords in this iconic series. In Breath of the Wild, whether you like this mechanic or not, weapons break after regular use. Personally, I am not a fan of this mechanic, particularly in Breath of the Wild.

Thankfully, the Master Sword does not break in Breath of the Wild. Instead, its power will drain, and you will have to wait for it to recharge before using it again. For whatever reason, if you lose the Master Sword, the player will get the message: “The Master Sword has returned to the forest.

However, a player has discovered a neat little trick that shoots your sparkly Master Sword into the sky on the assumption that it is returned to the Lost Woods. Yet, upon returning to the Lost Woods, the Master Sword is nowhere to be found. But wait, the Master Sword is still in your inventory.

Basically, to perform this trick, you have to pretty much overload your inventory, along with a few other actions. Once done, the Master Sword will zoom into the sky, and you will get the “The Master Sword has returned to the forest message.

Perhaps this trick might be a failsafe by the developers just in case the Master Sword was dropped or lost, and it did not respawn back to the woods? I could be wrong. If so, let us know your thoughts on this Master Sword trick across our social media channels.
