Once you’ve collected all the Zonai Devices you need, you can choose a location to start your build. If you follow the video tutorial, the build process should be a breeze. While building, you may encounter some frustrating moments like when I was struggling to get the wheels even. If any part of the build is slightly off, the Tank may not work as well as it should. However, if you have Autobuild, you can recreate the Tank anytime by spending Zonaite.

While the Tank is an ingenious tool, it comes with its own set of challenges. One of the issues is that some vehicles in Tears of the Kingdom can be hard to steer, including the Tank which can only make wide turns. Be cautious on tight corners and enjoy testing the Tank in battles against Hinox or dangerous Bokoblins.

If you want to try building the Tank in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the game is available on Nintendo Switch.
