As we’ve said a few times before, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild makes better use of Amiibo than any other Nintendo game to-date. Unfortunately, you can only use each Amiibo once a day, unless you use one of the below tricks.

This may be useful for those that are trying to get one of those last items, or maybe you’re just impatient and want everything in one day.

You can find out what each Amiibo does in Zelda: Breath of the Wild HERE.


The “save” trick

Go to an open field or village and save just before using your Amiibo. Use your Amiibo and if you get what you’re after, awesome.

If not, you can reload a save after opening the chest and before the notification disappears reload your save in order to try again. Obviously, if you get what you’re after, you’ve used your Amiibo for the day, but if not, you’re able to do this as many times as you need in order to get what you need.

The “fast forward” trick

With this, it’s simple. If you fast-forward your Nintendo Switch clock, you’re able to use the Amiibo straight away, again. Obviously, this one takes a little bit of work but if you’re wanting to kill a few hours and get absolutely everything, use your Amiibo, fast-forward your Nintendo Switch clock and then scan again.

You’ll need to disconnect your Nintendo Switch from the internet in order for this to successfully work.


How to actually use an Amiibo

To use Amiibos, you’ll need to wait until you get the Amiibo Rune. You can then use absolutely any Amiibo in any open-area of the game. You’ll also need to turn the functions on in the options setting of the game. It’s also worth noting that you can use these once a day.

The most important thing to note is that you can use ANY Amiibo with Breath of the Wild. Absolutely every Amiibo outside of the Zelda series of Amiibo will give you some form of random items. Obviously, the Zelda ones will give you the best drops.
