How to Get Past the Left Arm Depot in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

First Left Arm Depot Puzzle Solution

Similar to other depot dungeons, the Left Arm Depot in Tears of the Kingdom requires you to interact with the terminal and bring the machine part outside. Though the task is relatively simple, the main entrance closes almost immediately, forcing you to find another route out.

First, hit the wheel to open the doorway, then bring the container to the other side. If the door starts closing, cast Recall on it. In the next area, cross a lava flow. Use Ultrahand to attach two Big Wheels and a Steering Stick to the container, turning it into a makeshift vehicle.

There are two bars that create a narrower passageway in the next section. This prevents you from driving through it with your vehicle. I rotated the container sideways, switching the position of the Big Wheels accordingly. With the container slightly lowered, you can drive it across the gap.

Alternatively, you can also move the whole thing as far as you can through the gap, dropping it into the lava at the maximum possible distance. Then, use Ascend to reach the top ledge. You can then glide to the opposite side before picking it up with Ultrahand.

Second Left Arm Depot Puzzle Solution

The next Left Arm Depot puzzle section in Tears of the Kingdom is somewhat tricky. Given the previous puzzle, you might think to attach the wheels to the chain so you can lift the door. But that’s not the case. Here’s what I did during my playthrough:

  • Simply lift the door for a few seconds using Ultrahand.
  • After letting go, cast Recall on it.
  • While Recall is active, grab the container with Ultrahand and push it through the opening.

When that’s done, attach two Zonai Fans to the back portion of the container. This will let it coast down the waterway. In the image below, you’ll notice I kept the Big Wheels. This isn’t necessary. At the time, I thought I had to drive on land again, but the wheels caused the container-vehicle hybrid to get stuck in the waterway. So ditch those.

After you go down the waterway, head back to the Construct Factory. Once there, simply move the container near the machine core in the center. When the part is revealed, rotate and slot it in place.

Hidden Treasure Locations in the Depot

As you make your way through the Left Arm Depot, you’ll also want to keep your eyes out for some hidden treasures. The first treasure can be found in the room, where you must jump over the lava gap. There is a ladder you can climb up to find a Grand Poe that’s worth 20 Poe Souls.

In the last room with the waterway, look around for a spinning fan to find a chest on one of the blades. The easiest way I found to get the chest is to use Recall and hold it in place for a few seconds. Then use Ascend to go through the platform. You’ll get 3 Zonite.

And that’s how to complete the Left Arm Depot in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Now, all that’s left is to tackle the other mini-dungeons in the area.
