The classic mechanic of dealing extra damage with Critical Hits is also in the new Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK). This gameplay element in TotK allows you to deal double the damage of a normal attack. This can be especially useful against stronger enemies or even bosses. However, pulling this off requires a bit of skill and effort, but the payoff is satisfying. Find out here how you can deal extra damage using critical attacks.
How to Attack using Critical Hits in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK)
To deal Critical Hits in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK), there are two main ways to do so:
- Hitting headshots/weak points with the Bow.
- Using a weapon with a Critical Hit modifier.
Critical Shots using Bow
To get Critical shots with the Bow in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK), you must accurately aim your shot at the enemy’s head. Landing a hit directly on the head will deal a double-damage critical shot. Some enemies like the Hinox may even have a weak point. Its weak point is the giant eye. Hitting this weak point on such enemies will also deal a critical hit and double damage.
Critical Attacks using Weapon Modifier
Some weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK) have a special “Critical Hit” modifier. This modifier allows you to deal critical damage on the last hit of its combo. This is only possible if the weapon has this modifier. Otherwise, dealing critical damage with weapons is impossible.
That is how you can deal extra damage with Critical hits in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK). If you are looking for more guides on combat, you might be interested in knowing how to blind enemies in Zelda TOTK and how to use Sneakstrike in Zelda TOTK.
