Zonai Device - How to Use the Wing in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom introduces a wide range of new Zonai Devices that help you take flight. One of these, the Wing, is a large-sized glider that lets you surf the sky to cross gaps or sail between islands. It can seem tricky to use at first, but we’ve got some tips for you to help you master this new tool.

First, you’ll want to make sure that you have a Wing in your inventory (we’ll cover where to find them in a bit) and a fair amount of stamina left. This is because deploying the Wing takes up a good chunk of your stamina, so it’s best to wait until you have at least a quarter (but more preferably closer to half) of your stamina remaining. Once you have those requirements met, it’s time to try the device out.

To start, you’ll need to be on a flat surface that faces the direction in which you want the Wing to glide. You can do this by walking to a cliff and then placing the Wing down with Ultrahand before hitting it with Recall. It’s important that the wing isn’t positioned on a ledge as this will cause it to fall off if you’re too fast.

Once the Wing is in the air, you can move around on it to steer it in a particular direction. By default, the Wing will float forward at a steady pace, but you can also push it to the right or left by leaning in those directions. Similarly, you can use the aforementioned fans and rockets to give the Wing a speed boost if you’re having trouble keeping up.

Finally, you can use the wing to land on a specific location if you’re running low on stamina. This can be particularly useful for getting to a shrine or other landmark that you can’t reach by ground. Just be careful while landing, as Link can easily fall off the Wing if he isn’t careful.

While the wing is a great tool to have for when you need to fly across Hyrule, there are plenty of other things that can help you with that too, including Zonai Bombs, which can be used to stun enemies or even launch them into the air.
