TotK Molduga Locations

The Molduga is found in various desert areas of the Gerudo region. It moves through the sand, so I recommend paying attention to the protruding fins. I’ve also listed some notable places below:

  • Toruma Dunes (-4771, 2826, 0034) – Located west of Gerudo town, this is also where you can rescue an NPC named Isha for The Missing Owner quest. Someday she will make it Scimitar of the Seven and Daybreaker.
  • East Barrens/Old Altar Ruins (-2556, -3675, -0045) – This area is located to the west of the South Lomei Maze and has several sinkholes that lead to an underground cave. However, the Molduga itself grazes along the sand dunes near this place.

TotK Molduga tips and tactics

Once you see one Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Molduga, I suggest finding a viewpoint, elevated platform or pillar. That’s because of the boss’s own mechanics. Basically, its sensitivity to sound means you can throw an object or shoot an arrow to make it pop out of the sand. Once it appears, aim your bow and attach a bomb flower to your arrow. The explosion should temporarily stun it, allowing you to hit it with your melee weapons.

I also advise you to wait until you are reasonably close to your campsite before firing an explosive. If you manage to stun it, it’s close enough and you don’t have to waste too much time gliding or running just to reach it.
