Zelda: Breath of the Wild player uses a rather awesome tactic to access this special area of the game map

There’s a certain area in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which requires the player to enter in a particular manner. Since we’re uncertain how spoilerish this is, you way want stop reading now and move onto something else. You have been warned.


When trying to access the Lost Woods in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players are required to enter the optional area by using torches. However, one player found a way to access the region by bypassing the natural entrance which eventually leads to the Korok Forest.

In the video posted by on Twitter by Swiffy22 (thanks, Nintendo Everything), he shows how to access the Korok Forest by using a weapon, a felled tree log, Stasis, and the paraglider.

Watch for yourself.

That’s rather cool. However, if you’re interested in the “correct” way to enter the forest, Alex gives you the rundown on this page in our Breath of the Wild guide. It doesn’t sounds near as fun, though.

Again, I’m not sure whether any of this could be considered a spoiler or not, so I didn’t mention it in the headline. If it wasn’t a spoiler, well, it was better to be on the safe side.
