Location and Uses

Oracle of Seasons

Hyper Slingshot.png

In Oracle of Seasons, the Slingshot is located inside the Dancing Dragon Dungeon. This Slingshot uses Mystical Seeds, serving the same purpose as the Seed Shooter in Oracle of Ages. The main difference between them is that, with the Slingshot, the direction of the seed cannot be changed while preparing to shoot; moreover, the seeds will not ricochet if they come in contact with a wall.

The Slingshot can be upgraded to the Hyper Slingshot. It shoots three Mystical Seeds at a time in three different directions. It is found inside Sword & Shield Maze.

Four Swords Adventures

In Four Swords Adventures, the Slingshot can be found in various Levels; however, it can only be used in the Level where it is obtained, as all items disappear from Link's inventory once the Level is completed. If Link gives it to a Great Fairy, it will be upgraded to the Level 2 Slingshot, which allows Link to fire seeds in three different directions at once. Also, Link can charge the Slingshot to increase its travel distance. Different from previous games, the Slingshot has unlimited ammunition.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, the Slingshot is available for purchase at Sera's Sundries in Ordon Village for 30 Rupees. It uses Pumpkin Seeds as ammunition, which can be found when destroying Ordon Pumpkins. The Slingshot can knock down beehives in one shot and defeat small enemies like Skullwalltulas and Keese. Once Link obtains the Bow, the Slingshot becomes mostly useless, as it has less range and cannot damage bigger enemies.

Skyward Sword

In Skyward Sword, the Slingshot is given to Link by the Kikwi elder Bucha in the Faron Woods after finding three of the missing Kikwis. The Slingshot can be upgraded to the Scattershot at the Scrap Shop. This upgrade can fire several shots at once, widening the area that it can hit. Despite firing multiple projectiles, it only consumes one seed per use, as it breaks the seed into several pieces.
