As many of you have no doubt noticed Nintendo has started SpotPass on the Switch, sort of, via free gifts for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All you do is access the 'Tips from the Wild' posts in the News tab and launch the software from within the note, and a treasure chest or the items appear at Link's feet once the game boots up.

The latest gift, as you can tell in the image above, is all about throwable 'boomerang' weapons. The post explains that after throwing them with R you use A to catch them as they swerve back towards you; they can be pretty handy in battle. We tried this out twice in our Master Mode save (there's no limit to how many times you launch the software and claim the gift) and both times got the basic boomerang with 8 strength.

Well, it's better than a poke in the eye.
