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.

      How do you solve the veiled falls quest when obtaining the trident?

      1. F

        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

  2. L

    How do i get Dento to make me the Unbreakable Zora spear?

  3. D

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

    1. D

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

        By repair he means after they are broken. If you break the lightscale trident go to him with a diamond, 5 flint, and a zora spear to get another one.

    2. M

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

      the side quests are long and horrible, u have to go all over Hyrule to find people and its really tedious and boring. costs 3000 rupees to buy!!!

  5. M

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

  6. S

    The Hylian shield is also breakable, although it has a ton of durability.

    Plz help me defeat Lynen it is hard :/

    1. A

      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.

      1. S

        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

          Lurelin Village

      2. O

        Tbh I can’t even kill the lynel and I’ve got the master sword

  8. B

    The Shiled also breaks – takes long but still mine just broke down today

  9. W

    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.

    OMG, I should have read the comments first before trying to get the “Unbreakable Trident”. Hours wasted.

    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

      You must take into account how many hits they each do in a combo. 2-handed swords or axes, like the Boulder Breaker, do 2, so it would be 120 damage per combo and some nice knock back. Lightscale Trident is 22 damage and a 5-hit combo for spears, so 110 damage and long range. Scimitar of the Seven and the Daybreaker both come from Urbosa. Daybreaker had good durability and 48 parry power. Scimitar of the Seven is a one-handed sword, so 4 (I think) hits, of 32 damage, coming out to 128 damage, but it is not exactly long-ranged. Great Eagle Bow is a three-shot bow of 28 a shot, so you have the spreadshot effect, and if all three arrows hit the target, that amounts to 84 damage, not including headshots. But that’s a bow. Those are all the Champion’s weapons, and repairable weapons, I could have think of, aside from the Master Sword (Hylian Shield is not repairable, just rebuyable). To fix them, each takes one diamond, five flint, and a certain weapon you can find somewhere around the town they are in. These weapons are the Swallow Bow, Gerudo Scimitar, Zora Spear, and Cobble Crusher or Stone Smasher (not sure which).

    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?

    1. M

      You can buy it as many times as you want, there is even a glitch where you can get multiple at a time!

    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.

    1. B
      Brayden S

      Just some rare armor (Barbarian, Climbing), and the Hylian Shield once it breaks.

  14. A

    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. G
      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.

  15. P

    The shield hidden in the rocks between the gerudo highlands and desert is damn tough, the Gerudo one. It’s gold/free and circular. Lasted me some time now..

    1. B
      Brayden S

      Is that the Daybreaker? That would be Urbosa’s shield.

  16. W

    Another one is the Boulder breaker. If broken, you can get the cobble crusher in Goron City laying upwards against the outside entrance of a Hut, (right of the Chiefs hut,) besides a small a pool of lava. You’ll need a diamond and talk to the blacksmith. Give the ingredients needed and you’ll have the Boulder Breaker back.

    Another one is the Schmitar of the Seven along with the Daybreaker after beating Vah Naboris, and the Falcon Bow you get after beating Vah Medoh

  18. C
