How to Throw Material in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

To throw a material in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you first have to press and hold the R button (that’s the right shoulder button). This enters the “throwing mode,” so to speak. If you’re holding a weapon, you’ll automatically start aiming to throw it, but don’t worry about that. Next, press and hold “up” on the d-pad to enter the menu where you get to select a material to throw. Like, say, the Fire Fruit, which acts like a bomb. Keep holding R the whole time. Aim at whatever you want to throw materials at. Once you’re ready, let go of the button. If you’ve done everything correctly, Link will huck the item.

And there you have it, that’s how you throw a material in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. It’s nothing too difficult, but it might take a little practice. This is especially true in the heat of battle, where quick and decisive action can mean the difference between life and death. The aforementioned Yamiyo Shrine teaches you all about throwing materials, but it’s useful to know about it from the very beginning. I’m not sure whether the game will let you throw stuff this way before you visit Yamiyo, but it’s worth giving it a shot. The more tools you have under your belt, the more creative you can be in problem-solving. That’s what these games are all about in my eyes.
