The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, Breath of the Wild and features some of the most unique gaming mechanics ever seen. However, the fusion mechanic is one of the core mechanics added to the game. This allows you to build anything, including weapons. Therefore, this guide will help you decide the best weapon choices you can make in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
- Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has introduced a new game mechanic that allows players to fuse any two items in the game and create their best weapon.
- This Fusion allows players to create weapons and shields of their liking.
- As a result, you can fuse any item found in the world of the game into a weapon to create an entirely new weapon.
- The Fusion Mechanic is very simple to use and requires players to point their crosshairs at items they want to fuse.
- Moreover, Fusion increases a weapon’s durability and gives it additional properties. As a result, attaching fire fruit to an arrow creates a flaming arrow.
- However, the mechanic can be a little overwhelming; therefore, below is a list of some of the best weapons you can easily get in the game.
- Most of these items for fusion can be easily found in the world, so anyone jumping into the game can create most of the weapons.
- Some weapons require players to grind and wait till late game to acquire them finally. However, you won’t get tired of creating newer weapons that best suit your playstyle.
One of the most important things within a video game is its weapon mechanics. These mechanics can either improve a video game or end the game’s life. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom does not only understand this but has somehow created one of the most unique weapon experiences in the game.
In the Legend of Zelda: Tears of Kingdom, players are introduced to the Fusion system. You can first unlock this mechanic on the In-Isa shrine on the great sky Island. This mechanic allows players to fuse two objects in the game creating a new weapon with amazing stats. Therefore, it is important to understand the Fusion system before moving over to the list of best weapons.
Players are free to fuse any two objects in the game together. This makes your weapon choices almost infinite as any two things can be combined. However, it is important to understand that one of the two objects needs to be a weapon for a new fused weapon. So you can have a weak weapon, and you can attach a horn to make it very strong.
You can combine two objects to create a stronger weapon. However, you must first have a weapon equipped to fuse it with other objects. You can also use your shields to fuse them with objects to get passive damage while blocking.
Therefore, do the following to Fuse anything to your weapon:
- First, equip a weapon like a sword or a wooden stick.
- Then activate the Fuse ability by selecting it on the radio wheel. However, if the ability is already equipped, press the button next to the Fuse symbol on the left corner of your screen.
- Then just use your camera to highlight any material in your surrounding. You will see a green pulse going from your weapon to the object.
- Finally, you need to press the button on your screen to fuse two weapons.
- You now have a new weapon with abilities of the two things combined.
The arrows in the game have a great set of customizability too. You can attach anything to an arrow to create newer exciting arrows. As a result, you can create flaming arrows, freezing arrows, arrows that function like a homing missile, and even arrows that can travel a great distance. This adds a great variety to your arrows making them incredibly effective.
These are the following steps you can take to perform fusion on arrows:
- First, you need to equip your bow and draw an arrow.
- Next up bring up your inventory, which can be done by pressing the up button on the D-pad on consoles.
- You will see a list of items in your inventory that can be attached to your arrows.
- Now just select whatever item you want to attach and go back.
- Your new arrow will now be knocked and ready to do great things.
The item Fusion is very exciting, however, what if you want to attach something to an already fused weapon? The solution is simple, as the game only allows you to attach one item to a weapon. Therefore, you first need to remove the item that is already fused.
To undo Fusion, simply bring up your weapon inventory and click on the weapon. Then click on the drop option on the weapon you have selected. This will drop the item attached to your weapon, destroying it in the process. Now your weapon will be reverted to its default stage.
The fusion system makes it so you can have incredible freedom of weapon creation. Now that we have some knowledge of the fusion system, you can move on to weapons. However, it may be overwhelming to newer players as the choices are endless. Therefore, below is a list of some best weapons you can have in the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Rock – Any Melee Weapon
This may seem very ordinary and not that special. However, a big boulder or rock can turn your weak sword into a strong hammer. You can use this big hammer as a means of brute force.
Moreover, this can be used to protect your sword and help in breaking walls and other swords. This is a great option to have as you will find plenty of rocks around you. Therefore, attaching one to your sword will only make it stronger.
Fan – Any Shield
As previously mentioned, anything can be attached to your weapons and shield and a fan is no exception. You can attach a fan to your shield and blow away your enemies instead of blocking them. This shield although, does not deal a great amount of damage, is still great for fighting enemy hoards.
You can use your powerful fan to blow away large crowds and thin out the herd. Then you can use your arrow to take out enemies from a distance. The simplicity and practicality make this shield a great creation and one of the game’s top weapons choices.
Flame Emitter – Any Melee Weapon
The Flame Emitter is a very powerful item in the game. As the name suggests, this dragon-head-looking mechanical item can spew flames on the enemy. Therefore, just grab the longest stick you can find and attach the flame emitter on top of it. Now you can burn your enemies from a safe distance.
This can be great for enemies weak to fire, which is almost all enemies. This also allows you to maintain a safe distance from a group of enemies and slowly drain their health bar.
Flame Emitter – Boomerang
Attaching a Flame Emitter on a Boomerang may not seem like a good idea because it is not. However, this combo creates a weapon that is equal parts deadly and equal parts fun. This weapon is a testament to the freedom the fusion mechanic gives the players. The boomerang functions like normal. However, it will create a tornado of fire when thrown.
The weapon can cause severe damage to Link. It can also cause damage to the enemies around you. This weapon is fun and something you can show off to your friends.
Fire Fruit – Arrow
Attaching a fire fruit to your arrowhead creates a flaming arrow. This becomes an essential weapon for most players as now you can burn your enemies from a very safe distance. Therefore, always keep Fire Fruits in your inventory to quickly fuer a flaming arrow. Moreover, the flaming arrow can also kill most enemy types in the game.
Bokoblin Horn – Any Melee Weapon
The ordinary long stick may seem very boring and often breaks very quickly. Therefore, you attach on Bokoblin Horn on a long stick to make your very own spear. This spear can deal a great amount of damage to your enemies from a distance. Moreover, the Bokoblin Horn will increase the durability of your weapon so it does not break as quickly.
As both of these items are readily available that makes it one of the best weapons in the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Mushroom – Any Melee Weapon
This may seem odd, but fusing a Mushroom and a Stick creates a very effective spear. Moreover, both items can be found abundantly in the environment, so you can always find more.
It does not come as a surprise that this weapon does not do any real damage. However, what this weapon can do very effectively is push some of the best enemies back in Tears of the Kingdom.
The Mushroom creates sort of a bouncy surface that pushes enemies back. Attaching this to a long stick makes it a very great weapon for keeping enemies at a distance. Moreover, this allows you to separate groups of enemies and take them on one-on-one. It is also very comedic to see enemies fly back after getting hit with a Mushroom.
Blue Moblin – Any Melee Weapon
The Blue Moblin is fairly easy to locate in the world, and once you attach it to a handle, you got a great weapon. Fusing Blue Moblin creates a very effective and powerful weapon. This weapon looks a lot like a pickaxe and can function like one. As a result, you can use this Blue Moblin weapon to clear rocks out of your way.
However, this is still a very effective weapon that can deal a good amount of damage to your enemies. It may seem slow to swing around, but it is a great weapon to have with you.
Keese Eyeball – Arrow
Customization for arrows is some of the most fun in this game. The Keeses Eyeball can be attached to the arrow tip and transform your arrow into a homing arrow.
This means the arrow acting like a homing missile will lock onto a target until it hits it. Therefore, this makes it one of the most effective items in your inventory.
This allows you to take down enemies from a distance. Moreover, this works most effectively for enemies that move around a lot, as now you can just lock on your arrows.
Keese Wing – Arrow
The Keese Wing is another item that can be easily found in the world of Tears of the Kingdom and can create a weapon worthy of being called the best. Fusing this item with your arrows allows you to craft arrows that not only fly for a long distance but also faster. This makes these arrows seriously dangerous and provides a greater amount of damage. Therefore, if your enemy is off in distance, you can attach this item to take them out.
Bomb Flowers – Arrow
The Bomb Flower is again a great item that Link can store in his inventory. These flowers lily the hand grenade of this world and explode to deal great damage. However, what if you want more precision in your grenade throw and want it to travel some distance? The Fusion mechanic solves this problem by allowing you to attach a bomb flower to your arrow.
This allows you to use your bow and arrow as grenade launchers. Now you can throw grenades to longer distances with great accuracy. Moreover, this will enable you to wipe out crowds of enemies with swift blows. However, if you run out of Bomb Flowers, orange Chuchu Jelly will do the same.
Rocket – Any Shield
This may seem odd; but you can also attach a rocket to your shield. The shield still maintains its defensive ability, and now you can also use it to fly straight up. The rocket will give you a significant boost but allows you to use it once only. So if you get stuck in a sticky situation, attach the rocket to your shield and blast away to a safe height.
Skeletal Bokoblin Arm – Any Melee Weapon
The Skeletal Bokoblins spawn very frequently in the game. You can find these creatures at night hiding in the darkness of the caves. These Skeletal Bokoblins drop an arm when they are killed. Their arm may seem ordinary.
However, you can fuse the arm with any weapon and create a powerful weapon. This weapon has some of the best damage of an early weapon in the game.
Moreover, you can fuse two to create a weapon that has severe damage. However, as there is no weapon handle, this weapon lacks durability and will break quickly.
Soldier’s Construct Horn – Zonaite Longsword
This weapon requires you to get two specific items to her. The Zonaite Longsword is a two-handed sword you can find early on in the game. Moreover, the Soldier’s Construct Horn is also an early item from the game. However, once these items are combined, they create a powerful weapon.
The fused weapon is a perfect well-rounded weapon. You do not need to worry about speed, power, or durability once you create this weapon.
Flux Core – Any Melee Weapon
The Flux Constructs are the earliest bosses you will encounter in the game. These towering giants can be found in the early sky islands of the game. However, once these bosses are defeated, they drop a special item called the Flux Core. The Flux Core may be one of the most powerful items in the early game. Bring a spare weapon that can instantly be attached to your flux core.
The Fusion will create a weapon that has an insane amount of damage and deserves to be the best in Tears of the Kingdom. Moreover, the weapon boasts some great durability stats and can single-hit most of the weaker enemies in the game. One more thing to remember is that the stronger Flux Constructs will drop a stronger corer.
Blue Lizalfos Horn – Any Melee Weapon
The Blue Lizalfos is a common enemy that appears halfway through your campaign. These enemies resemble most chameleons; when defeated, they drop their horns. Moreover, these long horns are great for creating sword-like weapons. Therefore, these work great with weapons with shorter handles.
As the weapon can create great damage, attaching it to a shorter handle will make you swing quicker. Therefore, you will have both the horn’s damage and the weapon’s speed.
Puffshroom – Any Shield
The Puffshroom is sort of the smoke bomb of the world of Hyrule. However, the fusion mechanic allows you to attach one to your shield. This increases the defensive capabilities of your shield. Now you shield not only blocks but also the enemy strike, or the players can trigger the Puffshroom. This will create a cloud of smoke that players can easily use to their advantage.
The simplicity and effectiveness of the weapon make it one of the best weapons you can have in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Red Ruby – Arrows
The Rubies and Gems are treasure items that can be sold for solid cash. However, these gems are also given elemental effects. Attaching a Red Ruby to the end of your arrow creates a Rocket Launcher for this game. The Ruby can produce some of the strongest explosions in the game.
Therefore, attaching one to your arrow creates a very accurate and fast projectile that explodes on contact. This makes it great for dealing with crowds. However, only used if it comes to worst as the rubies are more effective in earning you currency.
Zonai Devices – Zonai Weapons
The Zonai weapons are special weapons that get an additional damage boost once attached to Zonai Devices. You can identify these weapons from their description. The weapon description will tell you that the weapon receives an extra damage boost if attached to a Zonai Device.
Therefore, as soon as you find a weapon like this, attach a Zonai Device as quickly as possible. The additional boost creates Fused weapons, some of the strongest in the game. Moreover, as both items are relatively easier to find in the game, creating a few weapons is best.
Master Sword – Any Item
The Master Sword may very well be one of the strongest weapons in the game. This sword, sometimes also known as the ‘Sword that Seals the Darkness,’ is a late-game weapon. The sword was also previously seen in Breath of the Wild; however, now the weapon does not have infinite durability. However, the weapon is still crazy strong and can be best described as the Boss Killer in the Tears of the Kingdom.
However, there are certain requirements you need to meet to get this weapon. You first need two full stamina bars, meaning you need to complete shrines and unlock that extra stamina. Moreover, the Lights of Blessings can also increase your stamina and health.
Additionally, the sword can only be found with the Light Dragon. Therefore, you need to play the game till ‘Recovering the Hero’s Sword’ main quest to find the Light Dragon and your sword. However, you now need to use all your abilities somehow to land on the Dragon’s head and pull your sword out from there.
Zora Weapons – Any Item
The Zora Weapons are a special type of weapon with special conditions. These are also late-game weapons and some of the strongest. These weapons have a special ability that allows the players to get double the damage if the weapon is wet. Therefore, you can attach an item and then get the weapon wet to increase the weapon’s strength.
You can fight in the water to keep the weapon wet. However, you can also use certain items, such as Chu Jelly, to keep your sword somewhat wet. Therefore, keeping this weapon with you and doubling your attack damage whenever you want is essential.
The Fusion system in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom give players total freedom to create their own best weapon. This results in some very unique and creative creations. You can attach and fuse anything onto the weapon of your choice to create newer weapons. As a result, players can create flame throwers, grenade launchers, and even a mushroom stick that will throw the enemies back.
The best weapon in the Tears of the Kingdom is not a super strong sword that you get later in the game; it is a weapon that you can easily create and do serious damage with. Therefore, it is best to go around the world of Hyrule and Sky Islands collecting items that can be used to create newer weapons.
However, it is important to remember that due to this insane amount of freedom, everyone can have a unique weapon they consider the best for themselves.
