Guide to BLSS (BotW)

The BLSS Glitch (Bow Lift Smuggling Slide) in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild allows Link to fly almost anywhere in Hyrule. You heard me right! The glitch allows Link to literally fly anywhere you want, only with a couple of conditions, here’s how!

The Glitch

BLSS is great! But it does take some getting used to to get it right consistently. Here’s one of the easiest methods:

What you’ll need for BLSS

To begin, you will need 4 things:

  • A liftable object such as a bomb.
  • A Bow.
  • A Shield.
  • And a Small Ledge.

Performing BLSS

The steps are a tad tricky, and you’ll need to move your fingers quickly, but I’m certain you’ll get it!

  1. Equip your bow and shield ready for BLSS and stand near the small ledge.
  2. Place you liftable item directly in front of you, in our case the square remote bomb.
  3. Hold ZL and press ZR and A in quick succession, this is called bow smuggling and will pick up the bomb while you still have the bow out.
  4. Now comes the tricky bit, hold ZL and press X, B and + in quick succession! This was the penultimate step.
  5. From the pause menu, unequip your shield and press + again. From here, press and hold ZR to aim your bow and while still holding ZR, press B. Let go of both buttons and walk forward. Press and hold B and walk of the ledge.

There you go! You have now completed BLSS! Be careful though as if you let go of B or let go of the Left Joystick as you will immediately fall down!
