When a Zelda: Breath of the Wild enemy does all the work for you, life is good

Uh, oops

Credit where credit is due when it comes to Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s autonomy. We don’t really talk about it enough (well, we talk about Breath of the Wild enough in a general sense!), but so many of these comical and skillful videos are able to happen because Nintendo made the world itself so free, which leads to all sorts of amazing clips like this one.

Here, Reddit user z1142 manages to make the best out of a seemingly bad situation, picking off an enemy base of Bokoblins (which are found strewn about the map). After the small army of enemies become aware of his presence, one picks up an explosive barrel, takes careful aim, and then…throws it into the ceiling and blows up all his friends.

As most Breath of the Wild players know you can shoot that lantern peeking out of the left eye socket to blow them all up anyway, but isn’t this so much more fun? I was immediately reminded of all of the dumb ’90s cartoon goons that shared these same antics, like a wave, all at once. “Sorry boss!”

Well, uh, That was easy from r/Breath_of_the_Wild
