Even if you are an experienced player in Breath of the Wild, it is never a reason to become arrogant. BOTW has powerful enemies that might appear challenging even for the most skilled players. One such monster is Lynel. In this guide, you will learn how to beat a Lynel in BOTW

How to Prepare for The Fight with a Lynel

The most important part of fighting a Lynel is preparation. Make sure to level up appropriate equipment and practice parrying attacks. It would be best to have a one-handed weapon and light gear that will not affect your speed.

Take into account that Lunel will deal you damage even if you dodge attacks perfectly. Therefore, always have plenty of healing items before starting the fight. If possible, use consumable boosters that can increase your strength and defense.

How to Defeat a Lynel in BOTW

You should approach a Lynel as soon as the battle starts. Even though it deals more damage with close-range attacks, its long-range attacks rarely miss. Therefore, you always have the chance to avoid a lot of damage by staying close to the monster.

Another trick for fighting Lynel is to use counterattacks. Try to dodge attacks and then use your fast weapon to deal damage. A good option is to use a bow with Ice Arrows. They can freeze a Lynel, allowing you to damage the monster significantly.

And if you hit Lynel in the face while it is charging attacks, you can stun it for a few seconds. Be sure this time is entirely enough to make you closer to the awaited victory.

That’s it with beating a Lynel in Breath of the Wild. If you are a beginner, avoid a Lynel instead of losing the battle every time you try to take down this monster. You better focus on something else. Good luck! And while you are still here, make sure to check our guide on how to get the Dark Armor in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
