How to Unlock

To get Terrako, you’ll need to collect 50 Terrako Components. These pieces are spread throughout missions that unlock after defeating Calamity.

Is Terrako Worth Unlocking?

Rebuilding Terrako is quite a grind of some fairly difficult missions. I questioned myself over and over again, is this going to be worth it? The answer? The sheer glee on my face as I unleashed droid hell upon my foes was something I won’t forget. Watching this little murder bot swing at enemies with its little swords and axes while making adorable sounds and firing lasers into the tornadoes of enemies you create is too good not to work for.

Special Ability

Dish out a large ball of energy to enemies in a small area in front of you.

Unique Action

Its unique action fires lasers. You can tap to fire lasers at enemies, hold to charge up your shot, or tap repeatedly while doing either Regular or Strong Attacks to fire volleys of lasers while you slay.

As a reminder, make sure you level up your party before you acquire Terrako! New characters will join at the average level of your party so only focusing on a few means you’ll need to also level up Terrako. Need some other Hyrule Warriors tips? We’ve got 12 written up for you right over here!

About Hyrule Warriors

For many, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is their first leap into the musou genre, a hack-and-slash type of game made popular by the Dynasty Warriors series. Set 100 years before Breath of the Wild, Link is asked to protect Princess Zelda as they travel with the Impa through four different regions. Along the way, you’ll recruit other characters to help defend Hyrule from Calamity Ganon’s impending assault.

Divine Beasts make a return and you can control them to defeat your enemies.

Players who have save date from Breath of the Wild will get a free training sword when they log in. While it’s not exactly the best looking weapon in the game, it’s something!
