Okay, admit it: I can’t have been the only one to use one The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom known duplication glitches to make a whole bunch of diamonds for easy rupees. It wasn’t hard to do! Unfortunately, the source of funds may run out as thanks to the game’s new version 1.1.2 update, it seems that many of the known duplication issues have been resolved.
The patch notes don’t specifically describe this:
Audio bug fixes
Fixed an issue where the sound would play at an extremely high volume under certain conditions.
Fixed an issue in the main quest, “Camerawork in Depth”, where players could not progress beyond a certain point. Downloading the update will allow players to progress beyond that point.
Several issues have been fixed to improve the gameplay experience.
But once I updated my game and tried out the glitch I used, I jumped, shut down my paraglider, went to the pause menu, held five items I wanted to duplicate, pressed Y and B at the same time, watch how drop my duped items on the floor, scoop them up and do it all over again – the glitch stopped working. Polygon reports that other glitches also stopped working.
Unfortunately, this means I have to go back to mining for diamonds in rocks like a log instead of magically duplicating them. But I’m not too concerned about it; the game absolutely reigns even without having 50 diamonds on hand. And I suspect some intrepid players will find more duplication issues in the future – players still have ways of duplicating items in the years old Breath of the Wildfinally.
