If you want to know how to get the 5 shot bow in Zelda TOTK, you’ve come to the right place. You might be after it because, well, having the ability to shoot a five-arrow shotgun blast is really cool. More likely, you’re here because you heard of the item duplication glitch. Don’t worry, I’m not here to judge. I’m here to explain how to get the five-shot bow in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, so let’s dive into it!
How to Get 5 Shot Bow in Tears of the Kingdom
To get the 5 shot bow in Zelda TOTK or Tears of the Kingdom, you first need to get a 3 shot bow. These drop pretty much exclusively from White-Maned or Silver Lynels, as far as we can tell. It’s not guaranteed to happen, mind you, but it is the only source of this particular weapon. Check out our Zelda TOTK Lynel Locations Map guide to see where you can find the monsters. Quick tip, though; your best bet is to go to the Floating Coliseum in the Underground Depths (coordinates -1139,-1262, -0499). The arena pits you against a gauntlet of Lynels and, more importantly, offers the best chances to score the three-shot bow. That’s the first step.
The next step to get the 5 shot bow in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom or TOTK is to find yourself a Rock Octorok. We have a whole separate guide on TOTK Rock Octorok locations, so take a look there if you need to. Bottom line is, they’re mostly in the area between Eldin Mountains in the north and Eldin Canyon in the south. Once you get to one of them, keep your distance at first. Don’t antagonize the creature. Save your game, then drop the three-shot bow onto the ground. Use Ultrahand to bring it in front of the Octorok’s face and let it suck the weapon up. A second later, it will spit the weapon out with a random enhancement. If it’s not a five-shot bow, load the save and keep trying.
