Breath of the Wild speedrunners are pushing Link to new speed limits with latest crazy glitch

Please take a look at what happens when you use this newly discovered glitch called the Bullet Time Bounce.


If you need proof that magic exists, look no further than speedrunners across the gaming industry. One of the biggest positive marks for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the malleability and freedom of the open world and players have found tons of creative ways to get around. Speed is the name of the game for speedrunners, though, and a newly discovered glitch is giving these players an extra shot in the arm and it is called the Bullet Time Bounce.

In case you don't remember, Twitch streamer Zant used Breath of the Wild's different mechanics to creatively launch himself to the top of Hyrule Castle. Zant is one of the players showing off a move in the game that takes advantage of an impact glitch with enemies. Players jump, turn away from the enemy in the direction they want to fly, and hit them while riding a shield. The ragdolling enemy will knock Link forward as if out of a canon.
