There is always a trick to fighting in the Zelda games for the Switch. Like its predecessors, the newest one has a unique bow function that users should be aware of. Learn the slow-mo bow shot in Zelda: Twilight of the Four Swords.
Zelda Tears of the Kingdom – How to Shoot the Bow in Slow Motion
The bow will always be moving at its normal speed while you are standing and pointing. Link can only enter slow motion while aiming if he jumps. However, you can’t merely hop in place and expect to succeed.
To get the delaying effect, you’ll need to find a good vantage point from which to leap, then press ZR. Something of a log’s height or greater is ideal.
The timing isn’t too much of a concern here because the effect will linger for quite some time. An individual’s stamina will only be depleted once. It won’t happen only when aiming. Even if you stop shooting, the slowing effect will continue until you strike the ground.
The main advantage is that you may switch out the fused part of your arrow with ease while the action is slowed down. If you make a bad decision, you can always switch to something else and use that instead.
This will prove useful in riddles, but against most construct adversaries, you will have plenty of time to kill them with arrows anyway.
