The Fuse ability in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is truly a game-changer, and it’s certainly here to revamp the Zelda formula. This feature allows players to make their own weapons with all sorts of materials and resources. There is a vast possibility out there and tons of room to experiment, but there are also specific combinations that gamers will be resorting to more often.
There are two very practical weapon fusion combos that players should learn early on, as they can be quite handy. This guide will explain how gamers can create their own axes and hammers from scratch with the Fuse ability available in Tears of the Kingdom.
How to Craft a Hammer
In Tears of the Kingdom, having a hammer in Link’s inventory can always come in handy. Hammers are pretty helpful tools that gamers can use to destroy large rock barriers and ore nodes throughout Hyrule.
Gamers will first have to unlock the Fuse ability to craft a hammer in Tears of the Kingdom. Then, they will have to fuse a weapon with a rock.
There are rocks and stones in Tears of the Kingdom, and they can be difficult to tell apart at first. When the player activates the Fuse ability, they can point in the direction of the object and its name will appear on the screen.
Players can remove fused materials from a weapon by opening their inventory, selecting the weapon, and then picking the “destroy fused material” option.
How to Craft an Axe
In Breath of the Wild, axes were useful, but they weren’t something that Link would carry in his inventory most of the time – except when chopping down dozens of trees to finish the Tarrey Town quest and to set up makeshift bridges. It’s completely different in Tears of the Kingdom, and oftentimes players will need to get their hands on an axe.
With the Ultrahand ability in Tears of the Kingdom, gamers can build all sorts of vehicles and contraptions. They’ll usually need to do some woodcutting to gather large tree trunks to do it, and for this, they’ll need to get an axe.
Axes are built just like hammers, but gamers will have to find a stone to fuse with the main weapon instead of a rock.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available for the Nintendo Switch.
