Out of all the top Nintendo protagonists, Link has to be right up there badass the end of the scale – though he’s somehow more endearing, too. We argue that Link’s coldness can be drawn from three things: his heroic, world-saving attitude; the way he hugs the cat Zelda: Twilight Princess; and how he was able to shoot a Bokoblin right between the two eyeballs with a masterfully placed arrow while riding. Indeed a guy.
However, sadly, we have some bad news. You see, Link’s bow technique suck.
That’s according to a professional instructor at Ridgeline Mounted Archers, an Oregon place that teaches mounted archery (aka shooting imaginary Bokoblins with an arrow expertly placed while riding). On Tiktok, the instructor explains that Link uses a ‘reverse two fingers’ drawing in Breath of the Wildthis is obviously a bad idea as it pushes your arrow in the opposite direction of where you want it to be.
However, Link seems to be fine with his poor technique, so it’s probably best to just let him do it. Maybe he just learned that method at a young age and can’t change his ways? Maybe we’ve been thinking too much about this?
Either way, you now know that you probably shouldn’t be copying your heroes. Especially when it comes to shooting fictional beasts.
