One great mechanic is the fusion mechanic, which essentially allows players to combine a piece of equipment with any other material. So, how to combine/fuse weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom? Keep reading to know.
As mentioned earlier, the fuse mechanic will let players fuse items to their weapons, giving them some attributes of the fused item. For example, tree branches can be wielded as weapons, but they are not effective in certain scenarios. Thanks to the fuse mechanic, you will be able to fuse a boulder to a tree branch, and all of a sudden you have a hammer ready to crush obstacles or enemies. And the possibilities do not stop at attaching a boulder to a tree branch. With the vast number of weapons and items available, the combinations to try are endless and all up to the player.
Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (ToTK): How to Combine/Fuse weapon
Tears of the Kingdom features a nifty process called fusing, which allows players to combine weapons, shields, or arrows with specific objects for a boost in abilities. So, to combine weapons, you need to first select the Fuse ability of your character, and then simply look out for objects that emit a dazzling jade-green glow. Once you’ve found a weapon or a shield, target the object you want to fuse with and press ZL to merge it with your shield or Y to merge it with your weapon. When it comes to fusing with arrows, draw your bow with ZR and hold Up on the D-Pad to pull up the Materials menu. Use the Right Stick to scroll through your materials and select the one you want to fuse with your arrow. Let go of the Up button, and the material should fuse with your arrow. Remember, fusing materials is a per-arrow affair, so you’ll need to keep fusing for each arrow you use.
Suppose you’ve fused a weapon or shield with a material, but now you want to reverse the process and get your original item back. Don’t fret; it’s a straightforward process in Tears of the Kingdom. First, open the Inventory menu by pressing the Plus (+) Button and navigate to the Weapons tab. From there, select the fused weapon that you want to infuse and choose the “Destroy Fused Material” option. This will infuse the weapon and return it to its original state. The fused material, unfortunately, will be destroyed in the process. If you want both items after un-fusing them, you can talk to Pelison in Tarrey Town and then un-fuse your weapon for a total of 20 rupees.
