Hunting was extremely fun in Breath of the Wild and thankfully, you can do it in Tears of the Kingdom as well. This allows Link to gather rare resources and get meat from his prey. That is why this guide will show you how to hunt in Tears of the Kingdom.

Once you get a bow and arrows, you can start hunting anything you want. The easiest targets are the smaller animals roaming across the map. While they can move around quickly, they die in a few hits. With that said, let’s dive right in and check out how to hunt easily.

Tears of the Kingdom: How to Hunt

How to Hunt

The first thing you need to do is crouch by pressing the left joystick. This will allow Link to move around stealthily without making any noise. Plus, you can also hide behind cover to remain hidden from your prey.

After you are crouched, take out your bow and aim at the target. Keep in mind that the gyro controls are activated by default so if you move your controller around, your bow will move as well. If you do not like these controls, you can switch them off in the settings at any time.

Aim your bow carefully and hit your target to bring them down. If you hit the weak points (mostly the head), you will deal more damage and critically strike as well. This will often kill the enemy instantly or knock them down – making it easier to hit them with subsequent strikes.

Raw Meat

After successfully hunting your target, you can get Raw Meat or other materials from their corpse. This will allow you to have a food source without having to spend any money in shops. Plus, you can cook the meat as well which will help you get more buffs and stats.

Seared Steak

Finally, you can head over to a campfire and cook the meat to get different items like a Seared Steak. This will restore more hearts and allow you to stay in combat longer. Having an abundance of cooked meat in your inventory is highly recommended since it will help you stay healthy and have high HP.


And there you have it; that’s how to hunt in Tears of the Kingdom. Hunting plays a vital role in the world of Hyrule as it allows you to gather resources like meat or anything else your prey might drop. This can allow you to gather tons of food and collect rare resources that certain animals drop.
