Ancient Screws are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Breath of the Wild

Ancient Screws are Materials that can be dropped by any Guardian after defeating them in battle, or by searching an already destroyed Guardian. Link can also purchase them from Stores such as the traveling merchant Teli, who travels around the Necluda province. Like all Ancient Materials, Ancient Screws are pieces of ancient machinery created by the ancient Sheikah. It shows no signs of wear, no matter how much it's used.[1]

At the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab, the Ancient Oven can use them to forge Ancient Set and other Ancient Soldier Gear. Additionally, like other Monster Parts, Link can use them to create Elixirs by Cooking them with small Animals. Three Ancient Screws are needed to upgrade the Sheikah Sensor at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab during the "Slated for Upgrades" Side Quest.[3] They can also be sold to Kilton at the Fang and Bone for Mon or used to make Gray Dye at the Kochi Dye Shop.

Ancient Screws are required to upgrade the following pieces of Armor at a Great Fairy Fountain.
