One The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player has created a flying pogo stick to hit the highest spot in Hyrule. Tears of the Kingdom gives players free rein to craft vehicles, from space shuttles and attack helicopters to specially modified buggies. Each vehicle is unique in its own right, allowing Link to cover great distances at speed. Considering the scale of Hyrule, vehicles are extremely helpful.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom provides players with a range of abilities that can be used for different purposes. For example, players can take advantage of Ultrahand to manipulate objects and attach them together. Those who don’t have time to create a new vehicle can utilize Autobuild, which allows them to bring Ultrahand schematics into existence. There is also the Ascend ability, which makes it possible to move through all kinds of buildings, including caves, homes, and wells.
A Reddit user went online to show their impressive pogo stick, which lifts them to the skies above Hyrule’s land. It seems to be composed of a rectangular chamber, a spring, two Zonai fans, and a steering stick. There are four cannons pointed down inside this chamber, which protects the player from the explosion. It allows them to take a lot of massive leaps until they reach the highest point of the game’s map. Despite its bulky design, the vehicle makes use of a simple mechanic to bounce the player up and down. The main component of this build is the Zonai spring, which converts the energy of the explosion into a vertical movement. It can be collected from Device Dispensers located across the Sky Islands.
Fellow Tears of the Kingdom players on the Reddit thread were impressed by this vehicle, with some joking that the game has been turned into Kerbal Space Program. When asked how long it took to hit the highest point in the sky, the pogo stick creator said they couldn’t go further five minutes after the launch.
Tears of the Kingdom expands on Hyrule’s map with new regions, including a network of caverns called The Depths. Players can reach these underground sections by simply jogging, but it would be much easier with a makeshift vehicle made of Tears of the Kingdom‘s Zonai devices. Vehicles not only get players from one place to another but also eliminate nearby threats with their collection of weapons. For example, a small pickup turns into a tank when combined with rockets, bombs, or beam emitters. Players are also free to use vehicles for entertainment purposes, such as setting up a racing tournament, climbing a mountain, or smashing hordes of enemies.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is now available for the Nintendo Switch.
