    Can you sever limbs with normal weapons? Or only guardian weapons?

    the fact that you can parry a literal explosive death laser with a wooden shield

  4. Bevid1 on July 5, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Everytime I come across a guardian: 😯🏃🏽🏃🏽🏃🏽🏃🏽🏃🏽

  5. Shannon Michael on July 5, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Bro parrying the laser beam of any guardian is definitely not “easy” lol. Yes it’ll take out a guardian rather well if you can manage it but timing is not so simple. I have watched videos on the timing and even after all that and practice for months I still can’t manage to pull off parrying all the time. And if you get hit even once, it’s like a very fatal mistake and depending on your armor and amount of hearts you have you could even die in one blow. And honestly the only way to parry with like good chances and better openings is by using the Hylian Shield which is the best shield in the game and not exactly easy to get especially early on although you can manage it. And not only this but even if you can manage some parries, most guardians take at least a few of them to actually take them down. It really isn’t that simple. Also ancient arrows are not easy to come by to use on guardians. There the most rare arrow in the game and even they don’t one shot a guardian unless your lucky enough to manage to hit one in the eye which is exactly has to be for a critical hit. Even after finding the tech lab in Akkalla and getting the ability to make ancient gear, it’s still kinda hard to make the arrows and somewhat pricey. Plus generally if you have the materials and rupees your gonna often want to make more useful ancient gear then the arrows.

    For me the best way to take out most guardians rather easily is by having your master sword fully upgraded and also having your stasis ability fully upgraded. With the combination of the two at your disposal any ground guardians will give you legit like no trouble. You can simply freeze them with the stasis and get enough opening for a good few attacks and then sorta just circle around the thing while attacking more likely before it can even find you right away and chances are high you will kill it before it locks on you or your stasis will be charged again and you can rinse and repeat. As for the sky ones just use bomb arrows as there much easier to come by then ancient arrows unless you have some and feel like using those. But literally just one bomb arrow will take out a engine of there’s if you can aim it right and just use 3 to do this and then the sky guardian becomes a basic bitch one and you just do the same thing I mentioned earlier and wreck it. Having your glider and getting some air so you can do slow motion falling will help with aiming if you can manage this. But this is the best way in my opinion as parrying again is rather difficult and very risky to do and ancient arrows are kinda scarce in the game. You can even use your master sword light beam attack if you have full hearts to also help with taking down the sky guardians to sorta conserve your arrows as well if your lacking on them.

  6. Bug Maniac Lynke on July 5, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    I like the parry method, but I don’t have the anchient arrows yet.

  7. John Johnson on July 5, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    All it did was break both my Guardian shield and it didn’t defect back at him

  8. isabelle Armstrong on July 5, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    ANCHIENT TECNOLOGY

  9. SpiderPig42 on July 5, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Start the game

    Get the pot lid

    With this shield, I have the power to defeat ALL the guardians!!!!

  10. Kazuhadoe on July 5, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Or you can listen for a beep then parry for any guardian

  11. sky peters on July 5, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I spend 4 HOURS trying the sword method and still haven’t got the hang of it. I’m so sad

  12. Trevor's Bench on July 5, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I’ve mastered the second method where I run up and start hacking legs off. Doing this is hard on weapons but very effective. Planting an arrow in the eye stuns them and buys enough time to run up and remove a leg. Every time you remove a leg the guardian gets stunned for a period of time which allows you to move onto another leg. Sometimes I’ll let them get 1 hit on me so I can ride the updraft and get 3 or 4 arrows into the eye which usually stuns them and knocks them over, buying more time to hack away. Farming guardian parts is easy this way

  13. Max Salem on July 5, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I literally stood behind a ruin and killed it with bombs from the slate. Yes, it only did 1 point per damage. It took me almost an hour.

  14. Adam Saldana on July 5, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Legend of fashionscape and I fully support it.

  15. Steven Weiler on July 5, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Master sword, ancient and the protection thing you use to shoot the laser back at the guardians. Im not afraid them anymore I just whack the crap out of them

  16. Trent Brack on July 5, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    This was very helpful for guardian hunting. thank you.

  17. Kanerudo on July 5, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Just started the game this week and the running ones still kill me.
    But I killed a few damages ones and the ones in shrines

  18. Lewis Martin on July 5, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    then theirs my method. running away

  19. Opjaytvcol sant on July 5, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    boomerangs ancient shields ancient arows and master sword works the best

  20. TheImperialZone TIZ on July 5, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Guardians aren’t that bad, as long as you have an ancient arrow and stasis+ you’re good

  21. Libby Kitty on July 5, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I’ve done the parrying at guardians on the ground, but when I tried it on a moving one, I couldn’t get the timing right.

  22. Noor Fatima on July 5, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Deflecting their laser back on them is easy when they’re not moving but somehow it never works for the ones that move around :((( anyone have any tips?? Even if I parry when the eye goes blue it just ends up hitting me

  23. LANA MAK on July 5, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    I have the dlc

  24. Gil Tauziede on July 5, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Thank You!!!🙏🙌🔥🔥🔥

  25. Frost on July 5, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    My favorite way to defeat them is by riding a horse and using a 2 handed weapon while circling the guardian attacking its legs and then finishing it off with a korok leaf

  26. frz3rbRnotaku1 on July 5, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Guardians usually take two arrows for me, but I guess I wasn’t hitting the eye. I’ve tried reflecting but I can never time right. But maybe since you told me how to tell, Might try again.

  27. ShadowLTM on July 5, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Flashback of me fighting 3 guardians right after I got the glider and thinking they have hacks

  28. Serena Martin on July 5, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    ‘I’m going to show you the quickest and easiest way to kill a guardian’

    Me: *Only managed to kill one single guardian so far by sneaking up behind it because it was unable to move around freely and apparently couldn’t turn all the way around to shoot at me* Thank youuuuu Q∆Q

  29. Pauley Boys on July 5, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Also one way I do it is I sneak up on them crouch under them and chop off a leg under them and nonstop hit em and repeat it a couple times

  30. Enoch Posada on July 5, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    You have to be frame perfect. He goes like swoosh so fast with his shield. So fast but barely active

  31. Brenna McGrady on July 5, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Thank you so much for the tips. 😂 I just spent 30 minutes dying to guardians trying to “practice killing” them. Then was able to do it in one shot because of the eyes blue flash timing tip.

  32. John Chitwood on July 6, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Can you makes videos of skyward sword how to kill vary big spiders ? Skyward sword is coming out on switch mid July

  33. bruh on July 6, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Hit it with a horse

  34. Mister Kaos on July 6, 2021 at 12:01 am

    There is a variant of the shield parry method, known as the swap-shield chain-parry method. This allows you to take down large numbers of guardians in rapid succession by quickly swapping shields after each parry. I once saw a video where someone took down 6 or 7 guardians using this method.

  35. Tyler Deleringo on July 6, 2021 at 12:02 am

    ugh PLEASE notice me senpai lol *guardian not noticing me

  36. gulf city nicholas danca on July 6, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Easy rip their legs off and leave them there

  37. Poketrainer1407 on July 6, 2021 at 12:04 am

    I just 1v1 them with the master sword and a horse. Dead in 30 seconds. (them not me)

    Works even better with Master Cycle.

  38. Leo Roina on July 6, 2021 at 12:09 am

    This man got two core drops in a row…

  39. MadeBy Storm on July 6, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Please upload a tryhard video with attacking many guardians at the same time while have it everything unequipped but a shield. That would impress me soo much. And please upload more of these kinds of videos.

  40. TheWizardBrand on July 6, 2021 at 12:12 am

    He missed 8 other things to kill a guardian

  41. CopyWright strike on July 6, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Thx so much I kept getting my shit reckt now I shall vanquish them all

  42. Thomas Nongyow on July 6, 2021 at 12:12 am

    While large Guardians of every type (Stalker, Decaying, Turret, Skywatcher) are formidable opponents, in Breath of the Wild, they are not required to be defeated in order to complete the game. This goes for all overworld large foes (Moblins, Hinoxes, Taluses, Lynels) as well. This differs in the spin-off game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity where Guardians are scenerio objectives or boss characters that are required to complete a scenerio. Unlike Breath of the Wild where Link can use a variety of arrows to defeat a Guardian, the playable characters of Age of Calamity that are armed with bows do not have such variety including Link. However, like in Breath of the Wild, Guardian lazer beams can be reflected back at one if a character carries a shield (Link and Urbosa).

  43. Yousef Rahalシ on July 6, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Who’s watching this in 2021?

  44. CyberCat on July 6, 2021 at 12:13 am

    It doesn’t need to be a good shield though. Any shield works.

  45. Magic Veemo on July 6, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Now that I know how to parry these things it’s the only thing I want to do

  46. TheLunarLegend on July 6, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Runs into guardian
    Me: I’m ready for you this time, *perfect reflects laser after a dozen tries*
    Guardian: *loses a third of its health*
    Me: … this is gonna hurt.

  47. bugz on July 6, 2021 at 12:17 am

    I have 210 hours in this game and I’m still terrified of guardians. I’ve never been anywhere near Hyrule castle because of it lol.

  48. Ness on July 6, 2021 at 12:18 am

    So basically, fight fire with fire

  49. COOPER WOOD on July 6, 2021 at 12:19 am

    I literally charged at a guardian with full ancient armor enchanted by the great fairy at max level and a ancient chainsaw and killed it before it could shoot its laser by the way it was a moving one

  50. Batabii on July 6, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Did you say "highland" shield?
