Eating food with cold resistance

Cooking food and elixirs in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom offers several advantages. Among these, one buff you can get is cold resistance. However, resistance to cold is only available in food that includes spicy peppers or similar ingredients.

Although this helps, the cold resistance boost is not very significant, but it can help keep you warm for a short period of time until you find a more reliable source of warmth. In general, eating spicy food in Tears of the Kingdom is a useful way to get short-term cold resistance. However, if you stumble upon ingredients that boost the potency of such food, it can help you reach a high level of cold resistance for longer periods of time.

Sun Shrooms are another popular ingredient for cold resistance boosts.

Building a campfire

To stay warm in cold regions in the game, you can create a campfire using flame arrows or a fire weapon and stand near it to prevent yourself from taking cold damage. Using the new fuse mechanic in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you can craft flaming/bomb arrows on the go to light a fire.

Additionally, you can use more creative methods and light up a wooden weapon at a campfire and carry it with you as a source of warmth. The weapon will remain lit until either you put it away or the fire degrades its durability. This can be a valuable tactic to stay warm while exploring cold areas or searching for a more reliable source of warmth.

How to get warm clothes

Before you begin your journey into a cold region, make sure to get your hands on some warm clothes. This is the best way to stay warm in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Even one piece of gear on you can help you withstand the cold far better than the other methods. This is because using warm clothes is a permanent method of cold resistance, while others provide temporary relief.


One of the earliest locations you can find warm clothes is the Gutanbac Shrine, where you get the Ascend ability. Near the Shrine, you’ll see a tree. If you climb it, you can find the Archaic Warm Greaves, which is good starter gear for Cold Resistance.

These three methods should help you make your way through the harsh snowy landscapes of Hyrule.
