You know how in Smash Bros, some Link players will use bombs to launch themselves in the air? Well it turns out you can do just that in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The technique is known as the “bomb impact launch” and was discovered by @satougashi020 on Twitter. This technique seems like it’ll have an impact on the speedrunning community. Previous methods used by the community relied on launching yourself with stasis and bouncing on bokoblin heads via bullet time.

To use this technique, all you need to do is denonate both of your remote bombs while you’re using bullet time. Also, make sure you have enough health and stamina. You can use the paraglider afterwards and can even use this technique consecutively to go an even greater distance!

This technique will take some practice and a handful of tries to get used to. But fortunately, it isn’t anything that requires overly complex frame perfect methods to perform. Give it a try and see for yourself!
