How to upgrade weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

If you are looking to upgrade weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you have to first find a Rock Octorok. Though you can't guarantee where these will be, you have a better chance of finding them in the Mountains. Check around the Eldin Mountains and Death Mountain for a white Octorock. It will suck in air, then shoot rocks and debris at you.

In order to get it to upgrade your weapon, you simply have to drop it in front of them, where they will suck it in, repair and upgrade it, and then fire it back at you. You will get hit by your own weapon here, so you should hold up a shield or wait behind a boulder. This will work with most weapons.


It will only do this once for every Blood Moon, so make sure to kill it when it does this, allowing another one to respawn for next time. It's worth pinging the area or using your travel medallions to ensure you can come back and fix up your weapons in the future. Though they can be a bit hard to find, it is well worth it!
