Bombs are a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series and are mainly used to blow up walls to uncover secrets, but there are other uses too. They are stored in a Bomb Bag and different Bombs have different effects on the game, with some even being able to make Link fly, allowing players to explore areas of the map they wouldn't be able to otherwise. The controls for Bombs have also changed over time, from slot setting to motion control systems and now this new method of using them known as wind bombing.
This new method is incredibly easy to learn and can save players huge amounts of time when exploring the game. It involves jumping into the air, selecting a Bomb and then aiming it at an object or shrine, then gliding away. This can be done from any point in the sky and can help players skip large sections of the world's map, which makes it a popular trick among speedrunners in Breath of the Wild.
It isn't a secret that wind bombing is one of the best ways to travel in Breath of the Wild, but there are a few tricks to mastering it. The most important thing to remember is to use your Wind Bombs in the right direction, which can be difficult to spot on the first few attempts!
