Zelda – Breath of the Wild: Unlocking Ancient Arrows and the Ancient Shop

Elizabeth Harper

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Ancient Arrows are highly sought after as they are the most powerful projectiles in the role-playing game. But where can you find Ancient Arrows? To do so, you first need to unlock the Ancient Shop in order to continuously buy a supply of arrows. We will reveal how you can accomplish this.

Ancient Arrows are the strongest arrows in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with an attack power of 50. You can easily take down regular enemies and adversaries with just one shot, but they are especially effective against the powerful Guardians, as they deplete one-third of their life energy directly. With a well-aimed shot to the eye, even one shot is enough! The following video shows you how to unlock the Ancient Shop, where you can endlessly purchase Ancient Arrows. ## Unlock Ancient Shop and Buy Ancient Arrows

  1. Head to the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab. In the course of the main quest, Impa will send you here anyway to unlock the camera function for your Sheikah Slate.
  2. To do so, you will first have to complete a quest where you have to transport the blue flame from the foot of Hateno to the top of the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab using a torch. This will unlock the camera for you through Purah.
  3. Afterwards, Purah will give you the task “The Other Researcher”, one of the side quests in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You are supposed to visit the researcher Robelo, who is located in the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab in the northeast.
  4. Once you reach him, you must take off your clothes and show him your scar to prove that you are the real Link.
  5. Now, you have to once again transport a blue flame, but this time the path is longer and filled with enemies. Since you cannot defend yourself while carrying the flame, it is recommended to eliminate as many enemies as possible on the way there.
  6. On the way back, light the torches along the path, as this will provide you with checkpoints.
