List of Contents
|A handy weapon that fires Deku Seeds. Direct hits can stun monsters.|
|Slingshot||Given by Bucha for free.|
Given to you by Kiwki Elder Bucha, the Slingshot is given as a reward for finding the Three missing Kikwis. Take note of your ammo as the slingshot can not fire without it.
The Slingshot uses Deku Seeds as ammo. Ammo can be found in things like crates or bushes scattered across the world. Ammo is easily obtained near in the areas around the Skyview Temple. Players can also purchase ammo from Rupin at the Gear Shop in the Bazaar.
When you first get the Slingshot, the amount of Deku Seed ammo you can stock is 20. Players can increase this limit by having a Seed Satchel in their Adventure Pouch. Seed Satchels can be purchased from Rupin in the Gear Shop or found in one of the Goddess Cubes.
Slingshot's primary use in combat is to stun enemies. Use this to your advantage when battling against multiple enemies.
Note that some enemies will block shots from a Slingshot with their weapons.
For flying enemies such as Keese, you can use the Slingshot to easily defeat them.
You can use Slingshots to make hanging objects fall. You can use this to fruits on trees to get Rupees or Deku Seeds, or interact with swinging vines.
Aside from rolling into trees, using slingshot will make Deku Hornet beehives fall to the ground. It will then drop Hornet Larvaes for you to collect.
Be mindful of the Deku Hornets as they will aggressively attack you when you use it.
You can use the Slingshot to enter Beedle's shop at Skyloft. Hit the bell with the weapon and a rope will come down, allowing you to grab it and enter the shop.

The Seed Satchel is the bag that holds the ammunition for the Slingshot. Upgrading the satchel allows you to hold more Deku Seeds in one bag.
You can also equip multiple Seed Satchels in the Adventure Pouch to increase its capacity without upgrading it. However, since the pouch has limited slots, we recommend upgrading the satchels to increase its maximum capacity.
Hold down the ZR Button on the Right Joy-Con to bring up the Items menu. Point the controller at the Slingshot and let go of the ZR Button to equip it.
Once you have equipped the Slingshot, press the ZR Button to use it. For motion controls, move your Right Joy-Con to aim, while for button controls, move your R-stick.
