Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Player Defeats Lynel In Just Six Seconds

A player has defeated a Lynel in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in just six seconds by using a special strategy.

Lynels are one of the most iconic bosses in The Legend of Zelda franchise. The centaur-like beasts have appeared in titles such as the original Zelda, A Link to the Past, Oracle of Seasons and Breath of the Wild to name but a few.

In Breath of the Wild, Lynels are particularly challenging and unless you are equipped to take on one of the five variations of the beast, the wise choice would be to run for the hills!

However, one player has made an absolute mockery of Lynels in Breath of the Wild, almost to the extent that I feel a little sorry for the fella (only a little though).

Lynel was brutalised

A clip was shared on Reddit by user Jhent. The 30-second clip starts the countdown as soon as the first hit has made contact for the unfortunate Lynel. By quickly switching weapons, and rapid-fire precision hits, the Lynel is totally belittled by our hero Link. To make matters worse, let’s say the Lynel does not take an arrow to the knee.

I openly admit that I often run in the opposite direction as soon as I see this creature in Breath of the Wild. However, I might just give this technique a test run to gain my own personal revenge on the annoying optional boss.

Are you tempted to give this technique a run and gain your own revenge on the Lynel? Let us know across our social media channels.
