Master Sword is one of the best weapons in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdombut even it is prone to gradual game weapon degradation.
The blade doesn’t break like most weapons, but it does lose strength and must be recharged. However, players have found a way to circumvent this with a combination of glitches. So, if you want to keep Link’s iconic sword swinging, read on, but be warned, it’s a pretty complex set of glitches and has a sizable error rate. So while it sounds nice to have an unbreakable Master Sword, the whole process is so complicated that I don’t blame you for giving up and getting back into the game.
How can I make Master Sword unbreakable in Tears of the Kingdom?
YouTuber KnightPohtaytoe has compiled all the information Zelda Players have found to recreate the exploit in a brief video, but they warn that taking advantage of these glitches will take you about an hour, assuming you do it all perfectly. It requires some exact time, two separate save files,
and the use of established exploits such as “zuggling” allows you to combine a variety of weapons together.[[[[Updated on May 26, 2023 9:26 a.m. ET: Nintendo has release a new patch because tears of the kingdom Resolves some glitches, including clutter, used in featured videos.

To start mining, you need to get to the Temple of In-Isa on Great Sky Island in about an hour of gameplay. Inside, do a manual save, create a second save, and play through the game’s intro long enough to fight Keese in the ruins alongside Zelda. Basically, the glitch requires you to drop the weapon in a precise spot and do some finishing touches with the menu so the weapon is essentially transported from one save file to another just like Link is doing. sending devices through time. If you do all this properly, you will find Master Sword in your manual save called MsgNotFound.
However, you cannot merge items with it using the normal method. This is where the zuggling exploit comes into play, allowing you to merge another weapon on top of the Fake Master Sword that you can craft an item into. This allows you to increase the Master Sword’s damage output, while preserving its invulnerability. If you want a brief, quick summary of the whole process, check out KnightPohtaytoe’s video:
This whole process is really complicated and I’m amazed that people have the patience to bang their heads on a game long enough to break it like this. But tears of the kingdom Really greatly inspires that creativity and exploitation with its open systems.
