It has been solely every week since Nintendo eliminated quite a few in style The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom item-duplication glitches with the discharge of the sport’s 1.1.2 replace patch. However intrepid gamers have already discovered alternate strategies for creating infinite gadgets to construct and combat to their coronary heart’s content material.
Essentially the most easy (if sluggish) new technique for merchandise duplication, as described by Kibbles Gaming, entails fusing an merchandise to a weapon, making ready to throw that weapon, after which watching beforehand considered cutscenes through the “recollections” part of the Journey Log. Every reminiscence you view apparently advances the sport’s logic by a single body, letting you simply pinpoint the four-frame timing window the place you possibly can throw a weapon whereas additionally retaining a duplicate in your stock. Whereas this technique is constant and easy to carry out (even early within the sport), it might take fairly some time to replenish your stock this manner.
A extra environment friendly merchandise duplication technique requires you to buy Hyperlink’s Home close to Tarry City within the east, then place a shock emitter merchandise close to the weapon show. With good timing, you possibly can place a weapon on that show throughout the identical body that the shock emitter knocks it out of your fingers, thus creating two copies of the weapon (and any fused merchandise) immediately.
Whereas this technique enables you to create functionally infinite merchandise copies shortly, it requires much more in-game set-up and a few comparatively exact timing. Different gamers have discovered that shortly eradicating items of rubber armor may help with the “shock” timing, a minimum of.

We count on Nintendo will patch out these newly found item-dupe strategies comparatively shortly, however we do not think about that may cease intrepid gamers from discovering additional exploits. In spite of everything, whereas Nintendo launched a couple of Breath of the Wild patches within the months after its 2017 launch, gamers have since discovered loads of exploitable glitches in that sport, together with one which’s strikingly much like the most recent Tears of the Kingdom merchandise duplication exploit. A kind of Breath of the Wild glitches—which even lets gamers duplicate uncommon korok seeds—was found as just lately as early 2022, displaying that there is not actually a time restrict on how lengthy Zelda gamers will spend determining how you can break these video games.
Somewhat than partaking on this cat-and-mouse glitch-fixing combat, we nonetheless suppose that Nintendo ought to lean in and make merchandise duplication an official a part of the sport. A completely supported merchandise duplication code or separate “artistic mode” would give many gamers the infinite, grind-free Zelda sandbox they so clearly need and deserve with out ruining the rigorously constructed challenges Nintendo labored so arduous on.
