Zelda Breath of The Wild Unbreakable Weapon Locations

Unbreakable weapons are items that have infinite durability in Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. They never break, and can be used forever. No matter their stats, they’re great because they’re reliable. There’s only a handful of them, and you’ll have to work hard to get them. In this guide, we’re going to show you Zelda Breath of the Wild unbreakable weapon locations, how to get them.

Unbreakable weapons in Zelda BoTW

Master Sword in Zelda BoTW

Master Sword is the legendary sword you’ve probably already seen, if you’ve ever played a Zelda game before. It’s powerful, it has emotional value for returning players, and it never breaks. It does need recharging after some use, though. It cannot be thrown, but it can shoot magic projectiles. If you want to know how to get it, check out our Master Sword location guide.

Hylian Shield in Zelda BoTW

Another recurring items, the Hylian Shield is known to older fans. It’s an indestructible shield that’s been passed down the Hyrulean royal family. You can get it after you beat the Stalnox boss in Hyrule Castle Underground. When you defeat the monster, it will spawn a chest. The shield will be inside. Hylian Shield has a very high durability which means it takes a long time before it breaks. When it breaks, it can not be repaired, but you can buy a new one from a secret vendor Grante. If you need the precise location and help with beating the boss, we have a detailed Hylian Shield location guide as well.

Ceremonial & Light Scale Trident

These two tridents can be obtained in the Zora’s Domain. They aren’t unbreakable, but a certain Zora blacksmith can repair them or make copies after you’ve worn them out. They’re expensive to replicate, but it’s a reliable method. You get the Light Scale Trident as reward for finishing the Divine Beast Vah Ruta quest. The Ceremonial Trident can be snatched from a pool in Zora’s Domain at any time. If you need precise instructions, we have a Ceremonial Trident location guide. When you’ve broken them, look for Dento, the old blacksmith in the lower area of Zora’s Domain. He’ll fix them up – for a steep price, though.

    You get the Trident after finishing the Divine Water Beast.

    It does break however, and you have to get it repaired in Zora’s domain.

        The veiled falls quest is Finished by swimming up the waterfall then with the glider float down above the orange platform and use the trident to air attack into it

    Well I got the 2 tridents, and the blacksmith doesn’t tell you he can combine them. I assume you were just speculating.

      Yeah. I read everyone saying this but it’s simply not true. Lots of false information on the internet nowadays.

      Is not a simple/random trident, the reparable tridents are two special ones, Ceremonial Trident and the Trident that belongs to Mipha.

    FYI the Hylian Shield can and will break. After reflecting beams back at the guardians for a bit mine was dystroyed!

      You don’t actually have to kill the Lynel. You only need to collect 20 arrows from the area. You can find them stuck in trees, Sitting on rocks, laying on the ground. They are literally littered everywhere in that zone. At that point in the game (The Zora domain was my first Beast Kill) its really to early for you to be trying to kill a Lynel. Seriously, That thing was harder to fight than the actual Waterblight Gannon.

        or you can buy them lol, there is a village by the sea, at the lower part of the map, don’t remeber the name, where you can gamble for double your money, the vendor sales 30 electric arrows at the time

  5. What

    The Master Sword is unbreakable, but runs out of charge if used on non-Calamity enemies and takes 10 minutes before it can be used again. The Hylian shield is extremely durable, but can break. You can get another from Grante in Tarrey Town after you’ve picked up the first. There is no way to combine the Ceremonial and LIghtscale Tridents. Anyone who was hoping to eventually be able to do combat like previous titles is going to be let down. For everything Nintendo did right, they dragged it down with this durability system. The few items that can be repaired such as the tridents are so garbage it’s not even worth it.

    There is other really good equipment in the game. I have beaten 3 of the 4 divine beast quests, and the other champions weapons are quite good. Goron champions weapon (Boulder Breaker) is a 60 atk power 2 handed… blunt sword I guess. It still kicks ass though. Gerudo champion had a sword and shield, also quite decent for atk power. (it’s not 60 but it’s pretty good) and to be able to reforge any of it is pretty good, just bugs me they all require diamonds…. not that i have a shortage of those lol

    The Hylian shield, unfortunately does break. Can anyone confirm how many times you can get it back? I heard you can obtain it again from Tarrey Town, but is that a single time only?

    The biggest mystery to me is what other shields, bows, and weapons the Grante vendor will sell once they are broken? I got some wacky weapons like blizzard rod (not ice, but better), royal 2xbow/claymore/2xbroadsword/halberd, royal guard claymore/spear.. then I also have some special characteristic weapons like “Critical Up” this and “Durability Up” that.

    Man, this is a dumb article. Just being honest here. It is supposed to be about unbreakable weapons yet mostly mentions weapons that are breakable.

    1. Gosu No0b

      We were hoping there would be more unbreakable weapons when we first wrote it. Turns out that there are none, except the master sword and some of the weapons described in the article that can be re-bought.
