Despite launching back in 2017, players continue to find news tricks, exploits and otherwise fun ways to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s built up a major community and since the new year alone, we’ve seen one modder restore an unused shrine, as well as the truly fantastic Bread% speedruns. Now though, a new method has emerged that lets you duplicate special items like Spirit Orbs, which could be a real game-changer.
This particular exploit requires you to have successfully activated the “Memory Storage” glitch, the same tricky method used to keep the Bow of Light outside the final battle. Once you’re on a new save file, you’ll need to place the travel medallion on Eventide Island, find a shrine you’ve not yet beaten, get the spirit orb and quit the game.
You’ll then need to reload your save file, start the Eventide Island quest and immediately give up. You’ll find your spirit orbs are still there, but the shrine you obtained it from will not be marked as completed.
It works on any item obtained via a cutscene, meaning you can also duplicate armour and, thankfully, Korok Seeds too. You can find the full details on how to perform this below, thanks to GamingReinvented:
For those who’d rather read how to do this, a step-by-step guide is also available on their website. Like before, this isn’t an easy exploit to pull off, but if you’ve successfully done it, let us know in the comments.
