The Rusty Gear is an archetype of Weapon in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

Rusty gear consists of weapons once used by knights. Over time, lack of maintenance and exposure to the elements have decayed the quality of these weapons, causing them to become brittle and frail.[2][3][4][5]

As Rusty gear is made from metal, all items in this series sink on water, do not burn when exposed to fire, attract lightning, and can be manipulated through Magnesis.

If a piece of Rusty gear is placed in front of a Rock Octorok while it is inhaling air before firing a projectile, it will swallow the item and pause to crunch it in its mouth. After this, it will shoot it back out as a cleaned counterpart. After being cleaned, there is a 50% chance that the item will be its corresponding item in the Traveler's Gear archetype, a 35% chance that it will be of the Soldier's Gear, a 10% chance that it will be of the Knight's Gear, and a 5% chance that it will be of the Royal Gear.
