Some don’t know that you can cut down these trees in Zelda: BotW
A video shared by a player The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is surprising other players, revealing that you can cut a type of tree that many believed could not be cut.
The Legend of Zelda is a franchise brimming with complexity and secrets. There are subtle features and hidden prizes that even the most dedicated Zelda fans don’t know about, harkening back to the original The Legend of Zelda for the NES, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is no different.
Nintendo took a big chance with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Nintendo Switch game would be the biggest step forward for the franchise since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time took the series from 2D to 3D in 1998.
Breath of the Wild’s sandbox open world offered all sorts of new opportunities for interactive gameplay elements, secret rewards, and amazing gameplay interactions.
One thing that players of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild seem to have overlooked, is that a certain type of tree can, in fact, be felled. Breath of the Wild players may remember a strange-looking tree, which some may have assumed was a tall mushroom or rock formation.
In a video shared on reddit, a Breath of the Wild player demonstrated that it’s entirely possible to chop down one of these with an axe. They act like normal trees that turn into wood, just like other trees.
