Now that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been out for about a month, it’s safe to say that plenty of players have gotten the hang of the open world game, and are pulling off some pretty impressive combative feats in their quest to save Hyrule. As it happens, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan and YouTuber by the name of GamingCrusader has now posted a clip of him defeating two Silver Lynels without taking a lick of damage.
As seen in the video below, it’s evident that GamingCrusader is up against one of the most fearsome foes in the game, as taking on a Silver Lynel is almost akin to a boss battle in and of itself, and battling two at once is no easy feat. Thankfully, though, the YouTuber uses deft evasion tactics to avoid taking any damage and manages to luck out several times throughout the course of the fight, for not only do some of the Silver Lynels’ attacks wind up damaging the other, but also they lose interest in Link at several points, allowing GamingCrusader to land some much-needed sneak attack blows.
One of the most important allies in GamingCrusader’s fight against the two Silver Lynels in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is patience, as he doesn’t use any exploits to take them down, and instead relies on a bunch of bolt arrows, the Savage Lynel Bow, and the Savage Lynel Sword. The most effective way he managed to bring them down was through headshots and climbing on their back if they looked like they were about to withdraw their bow. Of course, GamingCrusader doesn’t stay on their back for too long, as he realizes that it gives the the other a clean shot at Link.
Normally, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild players can only fight one of these monsters at a time, but there’s a section in the open world map‘s Northwestern wintry region that allows fans to lure two Silver Lynels together on a snowy plain. Should they be led too far, though, they will attempt to teleport back to their original location. However, there is a spot in the game where they can coexist, as evidenced in the video above, should other players want to try out GamingCrusader’s feat for themselves.
Of course, GamingCrusader’s tackling of two Silver Lynels at once is just one of many spectacular battles that fans have taken part in while playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. As a matter of fact, one that rivals the YouTuber’s glorious defeat of the centaur-like creatures is another player’s conquering of a Guardian with a horse while having no armor equipped and only three hearts available. Taking all of this into consideration, it will be interesting to see if other fans will eventually be able to top such impressive combat skills.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
