Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity’s Amiibos offers additional bonuses to players who own Nintendo’s NFC-enabled figures. The rewards aren’t great, but they’re easy to activate and worth scanning daily.
How to use Amiibo in times of disaster
Scanning amiibo in the Age of Calamity will give you rewards that you can use in the main game. These are made up of weapons and materials. To scan amiibo:
- Launch the game and go to the title screen.
- Select the “amiibo” option from the menu.
- Place amiibo in the center of the Pro Controller or on the Joy-Con controller on the right side.
- You will receive a reward.
Compatible Amiibo and Rewards
Scan amiibo for random rewards. This may include new weapons with seals or random material combinations. Therefore, all amiibos are compatible. The rewards are generally the same regardless of whether you use a random one like Breath of the Wild amiibo, Zelda Series amiibo, or Shovel Knight amiibo.
Amiibo restrictions and what to do next
You can scan up to 5 amiibos per day. When I try to scan the fifth amiibo, I get a prompt telling me that I can’t receive any additional rewards today.
Note that if you have two amiibo with the same character but different variations, you can only scan one of them. For example, if you are using the Super Smash Bros. version of Mario and the standard version of Mario, you can only scan once a day.
