The Slinger enables firing of different small items for both combat and utility purposes.
Slinger ammo must be [[gathered|gathering]] or crafted. The Slinger can only load one kind of ammo at once, and picking up new ammo will discard the currently loaded ammo.
The Slinger can be used when the player's weapon is sheathed. L2 aims the Slinger and R2 fires. The Sword and Shield is the only exception and is able to use the Slinger with the weapon unstheahed.
The player can also use L2 +
<<C>> to hook onto to Wedge Beetle to swing around the area.
