Learning how to break rocks in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is one of the best ways to get (or save) resources early on. Given so much of the game is about building, it shouldn't be too surprising to hear it's one of the ways to demolish rocks when you're low on bombs.
The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is the ambitious new follow-up to Breath of the Wild. With this comes a robust crafting system and an even more vibrant world. Though it follows the template set up by the previous game, it brings so much more with it.
How to break rocks in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
In true Zelda fashion, breaking cracked rocks is really easy with bombs. But they're a little harder to come by with the Remote Bomb power unavailable this time. But you don't always need bombs to get through. Not if you get creative.
You won't break rocks by just hitting them with standard weapons. But they can work. Instead, you have to create a swinging weapon with blunt damage to use like a hammer.
By fusing a club or claymore with materials like another rock or a Horriblin horn, you'll have a weapon suited to smashing through the obstacles. The numerical power level doesn't matter. The crudest blade with a generic rock will do the job. It's all about the material and weapon type.
How to find rocks in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Luckily, rocks are very common in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. You can find bigger ones closer to more mountainous areas, and smaller ones in grassy planes and big fields.
Generally, the best way of finding anything is by building a tower with items, climbing up it, and just looking around. Tears of the Kingdom is all about exploration, so make sure to do that as much as you can.
