Link shooting a Shock Arrow in LoZ: BotW.

The Shock Arrow is a type of Arrow in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


Shock arrows break apart on impact, channeling electricity into nearby objects. Very effective against metal and moisture.




Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • These arrows are considered separate ammo from regular Arrows. They don't deplete Link's supply of regular Arrows, and they don't require Magic Power to use. This is different then how they worked in some of the previous games in the series.
  • Hitting water or metal will have the electricity arc out in a burst from the point of impact.
