A new duplication glitch allows players to get more items in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, saving plenty of time and earning them loads of Rupees!

Foraging for items and earning Rupees is often a very long process in Tears of the Kingdom. And while it is certainly enjoyable, sometimes it would be nice to get what you want straight away.

Luckily, an item duplication glitch lets players make copies of any item they can attach to their bow, including rare and expensive diamonds and even dragon parts!

How to do the Item Duplication Glitch in Tears of the Kingdom

To do the item duplication glitch in Tears of the Kingdom, you need two bows and must Fuse a material to an arrow.

Then, by dropping the bow you are holding, equipping a new one, then pausing and unpausing the game as fast as possible, you will be able to duplicate the item you Fused to your arrow.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to duplicate items in TOTK:

  1. Use Fuse to attach any material you want as an arrow.
    • Hold ZR and up on the d-pad and select any item you want to duplicate to Fuse it with an arrow.
      • You’ll probably want to choose a rare, expensive, or powerful item like a diamond, bomb flowers, or dragon parts.
      • Here’s the easiest way to get a diamond in TOTK if you want one to duplicate.

  1. Aim up into the sky with your bow.
    • This is important as it gives you more time to do the double pause later.

  1. Unpause and pause the game as fast as possible.
    • The quickest way to do this is by pressing + twice as fast as you can.
    • You need to do this before your first bow hits the ground.
  2. Now, drop the bow you are holding.

  1. Finally, unpause and pick up both bows.
    • If you have done this fast enough, you’ll have one more of the item you Fused to your arrow.
    • If you don’t have an additional item, press the Y button to sort through your materials to see if the copy appears.
    • If there is still no duplicate item, you won’t have unpaused and paused the game fast enough – but you will not lose your item.

You can duplicate any material at least once every 30 seconds using this method.
  • Try again if the item duplication glitch didn’t work.
    • It may take a few tries to get it right and press + twice fast enough.
  • Repeat the process as many times as you like to duplicate as many items as you want.

If you have a valuable item fused to another weapon, you can still duplicate it. However, you’ll need to know how to unfuse materials in Tears of the Kingdom first!

In addition to duplicating rare material, you can also get more rare ingredients. This is perfect if you need more of a certain food so you can make meals to upgrade your horse’s stats.

You cannot duplicate weapons or armor using this glitch. The only items you can duplicate are materials you can fuse to arrows.
