Another day, another way to replicate some of the rarest items inside The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. But wait, there’s even better news. This latest endless item exploit is faster and easier than others. Take a moment with me and I’ll give you all the diamonds you can carry.
Update 25/5/2023 21:53 ET: Nintendo released patch 1.1.2 for Tears of the Kingdom tonight and it fixed a few replication issues, including this one, along with other bug fixes. If you go offline and don’t download the update, you can still duplicate items as you wish or stock up before you dive in. “A few issues have been addressed to improve the gaming experience,” read the patch notes. REST IN PEACE.
The original story is as follows.
latest method shared at Tears of the Kingdom sub-arrangement weekend (thanks Eurogamer) and the paraglider revolves around it. You just get some air, and then continue fiddling with the inventory screen as copies of all your valuables drop to the ground beneath you. Unlike the previous bow glitch, which required very precise timing, this one will allow you to be as sloppy as you want. I tested it this morning and had a 100 percent success rate. Here are the steps:
Make sure the item you want to copy is in the last slot on your inventory screen
- to climb something
- Jump and take out your glider
- Press start to backup item menu
- Select an item you only have one
- Then select the one in the last slot you want to copy.
- Press start twice
- Rinse and repeat until you hit the ground
The nice thing about this version of the endless item glitch is you No need to worry about how fast you press the start button. As long as you make the link while it is still live, it will be considered valid. And as a result, you can perform the trick several times in a row on each trip. You can also select more than one item from your duplicate to create a bunch at a time.
Update 23/5/2023 10:01 AM: Looks like there’s an even easier way to do this trick now. Start paragliding, pick any item from your bill of materials, hold it for as long as you can, and then press Y and B at the same time. The menu will sort and close at the same time, leaving copies of the item while your inventory remains unchanged. You no longer need to have the item in the last slot or bother with a second slot.
And if you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even do that when you pull up your shield to surf the air (if you don’t have paragliding yet or somewhere you can go high).
The only thing to be aware of is that items will fall to the floor. Do this when they are very high and it can be difficult to find where they fall. And if you are doing this with bombs or other fragile objects they will break/explode. “A warning before anyone tries this: Bombs don’t do much with flowers, I blew myself up with 20 or so bombs!” Wrote a player on the subreddit.
So far none of the item glitches that players have discovered so far have been removed from the game by Nintendo, but that may not be for long. This Breath of the Wild sequel got its first minor post-launch update last week, and will likely get another one soon. So start sliding.
