Beating The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as rapidly as potential? Boring — we’ve seen that speedrun earlier than. These days, the speedy Gonzales’ competing inside BOTW try extra obscure and unusual runs, just like the one the place you see how briskly you may go dwelling and die, or the one the place you race to a marriage. However the hottest speedrun of late needs to be bread%, a foolish class that has seen a handful of recent submissions for its leaderboard in mid-January.
The aim is easy: Get the substances to make a loaf of bread, and prepare dinner them. As is customary in any kind of BOTW speedrun, undertaking this feat includes clipping by parts of the map, utilizing the whistling mechanic to maneuver quicker, and naturally, a shirtless Hyperlink. The present excessive rating clocks in at 19:44:700, a time held by speedrunner Xeryph. Within the video above, you may watch as Hyperlink protect surfs over frosty plains to assemble the required powers to depart the preliminary Nice Plateau space. There are many “bullet time bounces,” which Hyperlink makes use of to realize huge air through Bokoblins, together with the trick of pulling out weapons whereas falling to dampen injury.
From there, Hyperlink catapults himself to a different portion of the map, close to the Tabantha Frontier, the place he instantly begins chopping down grass. The aim is to search out wheat, which drops randomly — apparently, this portion of the jokey speedrun could be improved, as Xeryph notes within the YouTube description that the wheat RNG is “dangerous.”
It’s unclear if this speedrun class could have legs in the long run, however for now I simply respect that we’re paying extra consideration to the underrated cooking parts of Breath of the Wild. Xeryph additionally holds high information for the rake in lake class, and is primary on this planet at killing Hyperlink rapidly.
