The Frostbite Armor set in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom imbues Link’s attacks with frost damage when he’s in cold environments.

It’s a really powerful set of armor in the right setting and can help in the heat (or cold) of battle!

Fortunately, getting your hands on it is incredibly easy, although you will need to bring some warm clothing and a handful of Spicy Elixirs.

All Frostbite Armor Locations TOTK

Every piece of the Frostbite Armor set is located in the snowy Hebra region to the Northwest. So, we recommend purchasing the Snowquill Armor set from the Rito Village store, as it helps with cold resistance.

Alternatively, you can use the Archaic Warm Greaves, which you can find on the Great Sky Island.

Additionally, having some Spicy Elixirs or cold resistance meals will help you survive the freezing temperatures and allow you to unlock the Frostbite Armor set.

Frostbite Headdress Location TOTK

The Frostbite Headdress is located in the Lake Kilsie Cave (coordinates -3930, 2844, -0016) in the Hebra Region Northwest of the Rospro Pass Skyview Tower.

  • Climb onto the ice pillars and jump across to the tunnel on the other side of the room. Having the Froggy Armor will help, as it will stop you from slipping off the ice pillars.
    • Be careful. Do not drop into the freezing water below, as it will damage you regardless of how much cold resistance you have.
  • If you glide across to the other side but don’t manage to reach the tunnel, follow these steps:
    • Edge over to the left side of the wall.
    • Climb up the black rock until you reach the edge of the ice.
    • Jump over the ice portion of the wall (press X) and then climb up the rest of the black rock onto the tunnel’s ledge.
