Newly found Zelda: Breath of the Wild glitch messes with the game's shaders


Obscure, but handy

Another week, another fun Zelda: Breath of the Wild discovery.

Rangers_Of_The_North over on Reddit managed to find one of the cooler glitches in recent months, a harmless bug that alters Link's shader visual effect. It doesn't just change Link's appearance, it also impacts items and equipment.

So how do you do it? Well, just head to the broken area of this structure at Lake Hylia, and you can see it for yourself. It's insane just how far people are willing to go in Breath of the Wild, exploring every inch of the game in search of treasure -- only to find something more and become internet famous.
