While we wait (im)patiently for more news on the upcoming story DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (will it arrive on the same date as the Champions amiibo?) we have another free gift to collect in the Switch version. For those of you unaware, within the 'News' tab you can access Tips from the Wild posts with some advice for beginners; when you launch the game from within the post you get a free item.

This time around the post explains that equipping a flame weapon like the Fire Rod can help keep Link warm in cold locations; when you boot the game you get the standard weapon (with 5 power).

You can do this as many times as you want, though most players are likely past the point where it'll be useful. That said, it is an item needed for a side quest where you show off various weapons to a slightly annoying child, so it could be handy for that.
