Players of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are currently grieving the absence of remote bombs from the Breath of the Wild sequel.
Fans of Breath of the Wild should be very familiar with remote bombs, which let Link blow things up from a safe distance. The product appears to have been replaced with bomb flowers in Tears of the Kingdom rather than carrying over. Although gamers can survive just fine without the weapon, it seems that enthusiasts aren’t quite ready to move on.
The Twitter user @aquatic_ambi, who uploaded a screenshot of the Breath of the Wild square remote bomb with the caption: “Missing babe a lot today,” is likely the most vocal person on this issue. You’ve given me a lot of weapon resilience in [Breath of the Wild], and I want you to know how much I appreciate it. You cut down my trees. You liked my [Bokoblins] by kaboom-ing them.
missed opportunities are the best Now that you’ve saved me a lot of weapon durability in BOW, I want you to know how much I appreciated it when you cut my trees and kaboom’d my bokos.twitter.com/AiqQVXGOPsMay 16, 2023
Other Zelda fans responded to this tweet by sharing their own happy recollections of the remote bomb, as if it had actually been a loved one who passed away. One user commented, “The battles we cheesed together,” to which @aquatic_ambi replied, “Stun locking a powerless moblin was among our valued memories.”
Bomb blossoms, the substitute item, are obviously insufficient, as stated by another user (opens in new tab): “It’s been really awful how often I’ve run out of bomb flowers in this game. Why couldn’t they have returned with Fuse if they could have? Imagine the force of bomb arrows that are completely free.
Obviously, the absence of the remote bomb extends beyond this one Twitter discussion. It does not feel right not having the remote bomb in Tears of the Kingdom straight away, tweeted @misterduby (opens in new tab), among other gamers who have also expressed their regret over the missing product. I launched that as my first strike at each and every enemy camp. The explosives were one element I wanted Tears of the Kingdom to retain from the original BOTW, according to @CupidofPrudence (opens in new tab). I don’t get the bombs.
Nintendo, you know what you need to do. Let people throw bombs.
