The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild allows you to obtain certain items from the various amiibo figures that Nintendo sells. That includes unlocking old Zelda characters like Wolf Link and Epona, but it can also get you extra weapons and items.

One particularly useful amiibo bonus is the twilight bow, which shoots light arrows with infinite ammo until it breaks, according to redditor ShugoTakahashi. Here's how you can pick one up in Breath of the Wild.

To get the twilight bow, you'll need to scan the Zelda amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series, according to RPG Site. You can scan amiibo once every 24 hours to try for a random chest drop, and you may need to scan your Zelda amiibo several times before you see the twilight bow appear.

Unfortunately, this can take some time, so if you don't get it at first, just keep trying. Eventually, you should get the drop, but at the very least you'll be amassing additional items and other goodies while waiting for the big one.
