This improved version of the Beetle can pick up bombs (and other round objects like hornet nests) in its front jaws and drop them like a bomber plane.

While controlling the Hook Beetle, hold Z to switch to a top-down view, then press A to drop the item.

Where to Find

During the main quest, you’ll obtain the Hook Beetle after rescuing a robot in Lanayru Desert, south from the central sand pit.


Afterwards, when you visit the Scrap Shop, you can upgrade the Hook Beetle into the Quick Beetle.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps. Plus every hero needs a rest; if you want to grab all the collectables and fix other people’s problems (sidequests), we can help you with that too!

Newly added:

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
  • Added dozens of useful maps.
