Ocarina of Time Swordless Link

Jump to: navigation, search

The Swordless Link glitch allows you to play the game with no sword equipped. For reasons that are presently unknown, playing the game while swordless allows you to use C-Items while riding Epona; numerous oddities can result from this, ranging from defying the game physics to glitching the weather in an area.

This is simple; get up to the final battle with Ganon. When he knocks the Master Sword out of Link's hands, save the game and reset. You will start on the first floor of Ganon's Tower with the B button blank. Go outside, call Epona and get on her, now you can use the c-button items while riding on her.
