Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Player Builds Working Catapult in Game
A sharp The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom fanatic crafted a totally operational catapult. Tears of the Kingdom furnishes gamers with a diverse array of objects and resources they can use to twist and even overcome the game’s conundrums and environmental limitations.
In Tears of the Kingdom, players can explore a map similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but with some extra features, such as Sky Islands and a large underground cavern system. The biggest difference, however, is in how players interact with the world through a set of abilities that are exclusive to this game. These powers encourage players to be creative in solving problems, either by constructing weapons and machines to overcome obstacles or by coming up with imaginative solutions to minor issues. Tears of the Kingdom provides a playground for players to have fun in any way they choose, no matter how outlandish the solution may seem.
A Redditor by the name of Ganjanator21 found a creative way to get some height off the ground by constructing a catapult. To build the projectile launcher, they used multiple wooden planks, including a small and large one, and a Zonai stabilizer weight. This device, located at the bottom of the structure, is what makes the catapult possible. In contrast to more intricate flying machines, this practical design is sure to get you airborne.
Ganjanator21 managed to efficiently utilize the Stabilizer’s primary purpose by anchoring the top of it to the bottom of the lowest beam and arranging it on its side. By connecting a long sequence of wooden components at the other end and fastening a wide paddle, activating the Stabilizer with an arrow would send Link flying through the air (as seen here). Additionally, the Stabilizer can also be employed in vehicle crafting and as an additional foothold to help Link get to those out-of-reach locations.
In Tears of the Wild, players will find massive environments like in Breath of the Wild, but with a focus on verticality, a catapult can be a great asset to have, especially when they unlock the capacity to store their designs to be reconstructed. If they find themselves in a pinch, though, they should recall the Ascend ability, which is always there for them.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is now out and ready to play on the Switch.
