In Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Terrako is the tiny egg-shaped Guardian that fled from the future to save Zelda, Link, and the Champions from their unfortunate fates. He’s a good boy, to say the least, but unlike his larger Guardian brethren, he doesn’t seem to have much in the way of weaponry. As it turns out, it’s possible to unlock his armaments so he can protect his friends, though it’s gonna take some elbow grease. Like, a lot of elbow grease. Here’s how to Unlock Terrako in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
How to Unlock Terrako in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
First and foremost, if you were hoping to have Terrako on your side early in the game, then sorry to disappoint, but it ain’t happening. You can only unlock Terrako during the post-game after you’ve already beaten the main campaign.
Due to circumstances we won’t go into here, Terrako is in need of extensive repairs. Unlike the other Guardians, he can’t be repaired with the usual bevy of ancient gears and screws. Terrako only takes specialized Terrako Parts, 50 to be precise, and it’ll take some time to find them.
Gathering the Parts
First, to expedite this process a smidge, look for the “Terrako’s Return” quest on your map after you beat the story. It should spawn in Central Hyrule, and that’ll be where you turn the parts in. Use your Sheikah Sensor to tag the parts and track their locations. Terrako quests will spawn all over the map alongside “Terrako’s Return,” and it’s from these challenges you’ll get the parts you need.
You’ll have to complete both material-gathering and combat challenges to get the parts, and this is where the grind comes in. The material challenges will often require rare materials like gemstones and Korok Seeds, while the combat challenges have high level recommendations and occasionally force you into using specific characters. Though, in a bit of good fortune, many of the combat challenges will yield some of the materials you need for the material challenges, so you might want to tackle them first if you’ve got the levels and gear for it.
Once you’ve got all 50 Terrako Parts, turn them in at “Terrako’s Return.” This will trigger a secret second ending for you to enjoy, and once it’s finished, you’ll have unlocked Terrako to take with you into combat. Don’t be fooled by his small stature; he’s still a Guardian and he still knows how to swing an Ancient Battle Axe like the best of ‘em.
