How to defeat a Hinox in 'Tears of the Kingdom'.

Fighting a Hinox isn't easy, but there are plenty of ways you can even the odds and emerge victorious. The first thing you'll want to do is fire an arrow toward its eye. Hit it while it's open, and you'll stun the beast. Use this time to get close and unleash your most devastating attacks.

After a few shots to the eye, the Hinox will start to keep its eye closed (or protected with its hand). It'll usually drop its guard later on, so try to bide your time and wait for an opening. While you wait, consider using some of your Sage abilities to deal extra damage. Riju and Yunobo are both great for this task.

You should also consider using a fast, one-handed weapon for this battle. This allows you to get in and deal quick damage while the Hinox is stunned, then get out of the way when it stands back up. A two-handed weapon might be a bit slow for this.

Once you've brought down the Hinox, you'll be rewarded with tons of loot. Hinox drop items such as Hinox Tooth, Hinox Guts, Hinox Toenail, Hinox Horn, and other resources. Consider farming them for parts once you have a weapon that deals more than 40 damage, as you should be able to make quick work of the deadly beasts.
