Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - amiibo Support | amiibo Rewards and How to Use

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!

Does Age of Calamity Support amiibo?

Compatible With All amiibos

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.

How to Scan amiibos

1 Select amiibo on the Title Screen
2 Tap the amiibo on the NFC Touchpoint to scan it
3 Collect rewards

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!
