Lynel Guts drop from four types of Lynel creatures, including:

  • Ordinary Red-Maned Lynel.
  • Blue-Maned Lynel.
  • White-Maned Lynel.
  • Silver Lynel.

Since Silver Lynels are extremely rare, I’d recommend going after the ordinary Red-Maned, Blue-Maned, and White-Maned variants to farm Lynel Guts, because it’s much simpler and less grindy. It’s also a lot easier to kill them than the Silver ones, so that’s always a plus.

You could use the Sensor+ gadget from the Hateno Village Research Lab and set it to sniff out the Lynel Guts on your way across the Kingdom of Hyrule. But I don’t recommend this method because it will take you a lot longer than if you knew exactly where to find Lynels.

These beasts typically roam the southern and southeastern areas of Hyrule, as indicated on the map above, but we can show you more exact locations to make things faster.

How to Quickly Defeat Lynels

Typically, Lynels are very hard to beat, but there’s a really simple method for farming Lynels that requires almost no skill at all. Despite the skill I personally have in any game, I prefer finding the easiest methods so I can get back to questing or performing other tasks, and I bet you do, as well. So, once you find a Lynel, regardless of the type, I suggest using the following strategy for easy and quick kills:

  1. Purchase as many Puffshrooms as you can from the Bargainer Statues in the Depths.
  2. Approach a Lynel that you wish to beat.
  3. Drop a Puffshroom, creating a smokescreen, which completely stops Lynel.
  4. Attack Lynel with any available weapon; it won’t respond until the smokescreen is active.
  5. Throw as many Puffshrooms as you need to defeat Lynel.
