The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Player Glides More Than 7,600m

Covering most of Hyrule in one swoop, with help from bombs and fire arrows.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is full of hidden gems, such as collecting all the korok seeds. But one player as discovered a quick way to get across Hyrule, using only a glider, some fire arrows and bombs.

At the top of Hyrule Ridge Tower, players will encounter a man who gives you a challenge to cover as much territory as you can before you land. Using the physics of the game world, a player decided to test just how far they could get. Using more than 300 fire arrows to light grass and cause updrafts, and more than 200 bomb arrows for explosions, the players was able to travel an amazing 7,615.8 meters in one jump. Of, course, extra stamina potions came in handy as well.

The trip took more than 20 minutes, and the developers did build a reward into the game. Unfortunately, it was only a single silver rupee. The inventory used was worth probably 100 times that, but the innovation displayed made for a cool video.

Check out how it was done, and please, do not try this at home:

        Yeah, I skipped about 20 minutes of that, but it was kind of cool to see how he did that.

        That's where it tops out, I think you need to go about 1/4 to 1/3 as far as he did in order to get it based upon how much I've gotten for flying only about 500m

          Totally worth it.

          Seems really odd considering how much the bowling game pays out.

            There are a few others out there but the only one you can really cheese for cash well enough to be worth it is the bowling game.

        Man, I went to that island early in the game when I first got to Hateno. How the fuck does one kill a Hinox with a stick?
