This is a guide to amiibo compatibility, and support in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn the game's amiibo functionality and see what rewards you can get from scanning them!

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Amiibo can be scanned once
All amiibos, including non-Zelda themed amiibo, can be used to claim rewards in the game. Each amiibo can only be scanned once and total of five amiibos can be scanned once per day.

Random Weapons and Materials

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Soldiers Spear from Amiibo
You can receive random weapons or materials from scanning amiibos.

Note that unlike Breath of the Wild, where Zelda-themed amiibos would occasionally drop exclusive weapons or armor, amiibos in Age of Calamity do not have exclusive weapons or outfits associated with scanning them. However, since the materials and weapons are useful for both weapon fusing and Quests, it's a good idea to scan five daily to farm them!

Be sure to collect the rewards before exiting

If you close the game after scanning and before playing, and then the date you were playing changes, you will receive a prompt reminder that the rewards have not yet collected from the previous scan. Select Yes to keep all the rewards received.

After collecting your new gear, you can return to the menu screen and scan again!

Urbosa will either drop a weapon for her, or Desert fruit Mipha will either drop a weapon for her or fish The Guardian amiibo will ALWAYS drop ancient parts (5x of any regular, 1x of the giant core) Any zelda amiibo (I have all 4 all) will either drop a tablet for her, "Hylian" items (rice, Shroom, Silent Princess), Gems, OR the bow even if you haven't gotten to that part in the story! Any Link Amiibo will drop a weapon for him or a shroom, Insect, and plant 5x

Not random. My SSB Zelda Amiibo can drop materials, but if she does drop a weapon, it *always* is a Zelda weapon (almost always a slate weapon, and most of those time a WEAK slate weapon, but I did get one Bow of Light this way way before I unlocked it in-game).
