The latest patch for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom prevents players from being able to use the item duplication bug to duplicate gear, crushing the hopes and dreams of fans around the world. This means that one of the most useful exploits in Tears of the Kingdom is gone, and players will have to source their own gear instead of relying on bugs.
Prior to the release of the latest patch, it was possible to exploit the item duplication bug in Tears of the Kingdom by performing a shield jump with the paraglider and then dropping items, causing copies to spawn on the ground. This allowed players to easily duplicate rare items such as Diamonds or Lynel Sabers, which could also be used as an Infinity Rupee bug by selling the excess gear to a shopkeeper and allowing them to make as much money as as they wanted without having to work for it.

It’s no surprise that Nintendo was quick to release a patch to fix the item duplication bug considering how it breaks the game and trivializes the experience. Tears of the Kingdom has a survival element that leaves the player with limited resources, especially since his weapons are made of cheese and they break every five minutes. When Link can jump in the air and spawn a bunch of high-end gear, the whole game becomes too easy.
