A full 18 months have passed since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In that time, fans have devoted hundreds of hours towards not simply beating the game, but also turning Hyrule’s ruins into their own personal playgrounds and learning several new tricks along the way. To this day, people are still discovering new tricks and exploits that keep the game interesting, including this new glitch that allows Link to fly across the map at insane speeds!
Reportedly discovered by a Chinese gamer this past week, the entire Breath of the Wild speedrunning community has raced to replicate this glitch, to great success. The glitch has been noted as successful with every enemy, as long as you have enough distance from the ground to enter bullet time mode.
Here’s how it works: the glitch is commenced by Link jumping down towards an enemy, entering bullet time mode, turning Link so he’s facing away from his foe, and then bouncing off of that enemy with a shield at his feet. That’s all it takes to launch him across the map faster than the game can load, causing it to freeze at times. Sure, it may take seven or eight frame-perfect button presses, but the results are definitely worth it, as this new mode of travel allows you to surf effortlessly above the game’s beautiful locales.
