TotK Forward Force Puzzle Walkthrough

You’ll be transporting the orb like the precious cargo it is to complete the Shrine and receive the reward. Even though you’ll come across various materials, I learned that the shrine doesn’t require much building to complete. Here’s what you need to do:

  • When you enter, run past the first area and glide or climb down to the lower platform.
  • Use your Ultrahand ability to attach the orb to the existing vehicle.
  • Jump on the vehicle.
  • Hit the vehicle’s tires with your primary weapon to engage the power and move it across the lava-field.
  • Stay as close to the center of the raft as you can. I learned the hard way, you don’t want to get splashed with lava.
  • Jump off the vehicle and detach the orb with your Ultrahand.

  • Enter the next area carrying the orb with your ability.
  • Attach it to the metal cube on the right, it’s connected to a metal track.
  • Reselect the cube and orb with your Ultrahand and move it to the top of the track, then let go. 
  • Climb the ladder then select your Recall ability and rewind the cube’s action.
  • The cube will reappear next to you, re-equip your Ultrahand and select the orb.
  • Detach the orb from the cube and carry it into the next area.

  • When you enter the room you’ll notice two rafts with wheels, and various materials nearby.
  • Grab a set of wheels from one raft with your Ultrahand and attach it to the other so there’s four equally spaced, it might take some rearranging.
  • Attach the orb to the raft with your Ultrahand.
  • Hit the wheels to engage the power, or you can shoot them with an arrow after completing the next step.
  • Lift the raft on top of the furthest set of metal barriers so they ride it like a track and make sure the arrows point towards the exit, as shown above.
