The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild glitch lets you dive in water, walk on the riverbed

There may be nothing for you there, but you can - if you want to - explore the riverbed in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild doesn't let you dive into the water. You can swim, but like everything else you do in the game, it relies on stamina.

However, if you can get something to push you into the water, you'll be able to access what's underneath. There's nothing there to explore, sadly, but you can access it.

Twitter user Swiffy22 (via Destructoid) managed to trigger this glitch by getting an enemy to hit them. The shockwave sent Link flying and into the water.

Here's the user getting hit by a Stone Talus.

You can also trigger it by simply detonating a square bomb near an edge. This is very easy to do, as you're about to see, and achieves the same goal.

In the two clips, the area underwater happened to be a very small. It may be possible to reach a new location by continuing to walk, crossing the bond.

If you're looking for honest-to-god tips to improve your Breath of the Wild game, look no further than our massive guide. It's got everything you could hope for, from item and gear locations to walkthroughs and general tips.
