How to beat a Lynel in 'Tears of the Kingdom.'
There’s no foolproof way to beat a Lynel in Tears of the Kingdom, but using your bow and arrows to stun it with a headshot is one of the best methods. Then, you can rush in and land a few hits, before backing up and repeating the process.
You can also try throwing Puffshrooms at a Lynel to disorient it. This has a similar effect to hitting it with an arrow, as it effectively opens the beast up for easy attacks without much threat of a counter-offensive.
Regardless of what technique you use to fight a Lynel, it’s always important to have high-level armor and weapons, along with a bunch of food. It only takes a few hits from a Lynel to deplete all your Hearts —so be sure you come prepared with enhanced gear that’ll allow you to take a few hits and make a few mistakes.
For beating a Lynel, you’ll be rewarded with a variety of resources, including Lynel Saber Horns, Lynel Mace Horns, Lynel Hooves, and arrows. Most of these are excellent Fuse materials and should allow you to build up an arsenal of powerful weapons. You can also sell them to earn heaps of rupees.
