Ancient Screws are items in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

Ancient Screws are Materials that can be dropped by any Guardian after defeating them in battle, or by searching an already destroyed Guardian. Link can also purchase them from Shops such as the traveling merchant Teli, who travels around the Necluda province. Like all Guardian parts, Ancient Screws are pieces of ancient machinery created by the ancient Sheikah.

Ancient Screws can be used by Great Fairies to upgrade certain Armor. At the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab, the Ancient Oven Cherry can use them to forge certain types of Ancient Soldier Gear. Additionally, like Monster Parts, Link can use them to create Elixirs by Cooking them with small Animals.
