Things you didn’t know about the Master Cycle (BotW)

A lot of people who have completed the second DLC of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild use the Master Cycle quite often, I know I do! But there are a few things I’m willing to bet you didn’t know about BotW’s fifth Divine Beast!

What is the Master Cycle?

Ok, you probably do already know this, but in case you haven’t played/finished BotW’s second DLC, I’ll explain now what the Master Cycle is. SPOILERS FOR THE SECOND DLC.

The Master Cycle is a Bike Divine Beast of sorts, It’s acquired after completing a series of challenges set by the Goddess Hylia devoted monk: Monk Maz Koshia. The Master Cycle can be used to drive long distances much faster than a horse! You do need to recharge it every now again, but you can use simple materials like apples or rock salt!

#1) Bullet-time!

By facing the back wheel of the bike, jumping towards it and pressing ZL, you can enter bullet time from the ground, this means you can even do a wind bomb, perfect for reaching places that you just can’t be bothered to climb!

#2) Fairies.

Did you know that when you fuel the master cycle, it has the same animation for almost every item you insert?; the item being converted into energy for the engine. But when you try to convert fairies into fuel, they bless the bike instead! Interesting!

#3) Transporting Fire!

It turns out, you’re not the only thing the Master Cycle can transport, the elements can join too! By shooting a fire arrow at the bike, and summoning it a bit away, the fire will tag along too, you can even see it zoom past link in this video!

#4) Stone Pebbits.

Pebbits, with the slight exception of keese, may be the most annoying enemies in all of BotW, just think of the ice ones, they freeze you, hit you, freeze you, hit you and… just ugh! But I bet you didn’t know you can destroy these criminal rocks by running over them with the Master Cycle!

I hope you enjoyed this article, If you play this game quite a bit, you may have known a couple, but I must have caught you out on at least one! Right? No? Well then… I’ll catch you out on the next one!
