Weapon Modifiers Guide For Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom

If you're not familiar with Weapon Modifier in Tears of the Kingdom, then here's all you need to know.

If you’re new to Tears of the Kingdom, then you might be wondering what Weapon Modifiers are and how you can get one. In simple terms, the modifiers give your weapon a stat boost that lasts until your weapon breaks. The same mechanic was first introduced in the Zelda BotW and was considered pretty useful. However, due to its overpowered effect, many of the modifiers were nerfed. That made the players wonder how many Weapon Modifiers are there in Zelda TotK.

How to Get & Equip Weapon Modifiers in Tears of the Kingdom

To get and equip Weapon Modifiers to one of your weapons you’ll have to find Rock Octorok. This creature is usually found in the northwest region of the Marakuguc Shrine. Once you find it, simply place the weapon in front of it and it’ll suck the weapon in. And after a few seconds, it’ll throw a repaired and modified weapon toward you. But when it does, ensure you have your guard up or else it might kill you.

If you give it a weapon with no modifiers equipped it’ll reward you with a White level (Basic) modifier upgrade. But if you give it a weapon with a Green (Average) or Blue (Good) upgrade, then it may give you the Gold level (Best), or repair it and give back a Blue one again. You can tell the Weapon Modifiers level by the color of the weapon’s background in your inventory. Also note, Rock Octorok can only repair & modify weapons on Blood Moons.

That sums up all about the confirmed Weapon Modifiers and how you can equip one in Tears of the Kingdom. If you’re dicey about which equipment you should go with, then check out this list of the Best Weapons available in TotK. Also, take a look at the ways to farm Diamonds & Rupees in the game.
