New glitch/challenge found for Zelda: Breath of the Wild - skip the Sheikah Slate
July 27, 20171 min read
Folks are finding all sorts of obscure ways to break Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Thankfully it's mostly in ways that involve manipulating loading screens or save files (remember that old school Link's Awakeningteleport bug?) so you won't come across it naturally, but this is what happens when millions of people have access to your game.
This new one involves getting out of the initial area without the Sheikah Slate. To initiate the glitch you'll save a new file at the start of the game, then load an old one. Head to a cliff, and pause the game as soon as you drop from any ledge (including an ice block) -- then reload the first save and you'll "die," forcing Link outside of the intro shrine.
Congrats! You're now completely naked in the world, with no ability to teleport, use the Hyrule Compendium, or scout items with the sensor. You can however activate Shrines.
