The Longshot is an item in Ocarina of Time.[1]

Location and Uses

The Longshot is an upgraded form of the Hookshot which can be found inside the Water Temple. It is obtained after defeating Dark Link in the standard versions of Ocarina of Time. However, it is obtained much earlier in Master Quest. The Longshot has twice the reach as the normal Hookshot,[2] allowing Link to reach more distant targets. The Longshot can pull Link towards Hookshot targets, wooden objects and some enemies, such as ReDeads. Similarly, it can pull certain enemies towards Link, such as Morpha's eye. The Longshot is required to fully navigate the Water Temple, as many targets are out of reach from the regular Hookshot. The Longshot can be used to cross the broken bridge in Gerudo Valley as well as the River of Sand in the Haunted Wasteland.

Like the Hookshot, the Longshot can deal stun and deal damage to certain enemies. When pointed at a target within range, a red dot acting as a reticle will appear on-screen. In Ocarina of Time 3D, this red reticle is accompanied by a circle that encompasses the dot. Additionally, the Longshot can be aimed with the Nintendo 3DS gyroscope.
