The Boulder Breaker, a weapon of substantial strength and durability, is one of the sought-after items in the game Tears of the Kingdom. However, obtaining this weapon requires certain preconditions to be met and materials to be collected, similar to that of the Scimitar of the Seven or Lightscale Trident.
Below, this guide will walk you through all the steps necessary to procure the Boulder Breaker so you can wield its Goron strength in your adventures through the game.
How To Get Boulder Breaker Tears Of The Kingdom
The first requirement for obtaining the Boulder Breaker involves clearing the Fire Temple. This step is crucial as it unlocks the full area of Goron, providing you with the access required to start the Boulder Breaker quest.
Once you’ve completed the Fire Temple, head over to Goron City and seek out Fugo, a budding blacksmith. Fugo harbors a desire to craft a Boulder Breaker, but he needs the right materials for the job. Engaging in a conversation with him will activate the quest to obtain these materials.
To help Fugo craft the Boulder Breaker, you will need to procure several items: a Cobble Crusher, three Diamonds, and five pieces of Flint.
The easiest Cobble Crusher is found just west of Death Mountain within a small shack guarded by some enemies. It’s an easy pick and should pose no significant challenge if you just run past them. Here’s the precise location:
Diamonds can be located in rare ore deposits scattered throughout the game. However, if mining for Diamonds proves too time-consuming, an alternative source is available. Gonguron, a character also residing in Goron City, sells Diamonds.
As you traverse the game’s vast landscapes, you should have gathered Flint along your journey. If not, Flint can usually be found when you break open ore deposits, just like Diamonds.
After all the necessary materials have been collected, return to Fugo in Goron City. Hand over the Cobble Crusher, Diamonds, and Flint.
With these, Fugo will be able to fulfill his aspiration of crafting a Boulder Breaker, and in gratitude, he will reward you with the weapon.
Remember that these steps involve you first completing that Fire Temple so ensure that your character is well-equipped and prepared for the challenges that lie in wait. Once you receive the Boulder Breaker, it will prove to be an invaluable tool in your subsequent adventures in Tears of the Kingdom.
