The Tears of the Kingdom community has discovered a new time saving trick that allows players to solve select Korok puzzles in a matter of seconds using Link’s weapon fuse ability.
Pointed out by Twitter user aquatic_ambi (below), the Korok puzzles that have Link find a missing rock to complete a pattern on the ground can be completed using a rock-fused weapon. By performing a jump attack at the location of the missing pebble using said weapon, or by otherwise positioning the rock end in the gap, the puzzle will be considered complete.
“You have done us all a great service today. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to recover from my mind getting blow by this,” said one of the many Twitter users responding to the video highlighting the trick.

“Excuse me what? I swear this game just has way too many things that I haven’t discovered yet,” commented another excited player. "It counts?!," digitally shrieked another, "What the heck have I been doing”.
Regardless, it's a timesaver in a game packed with exciting things to do, and represents yet another way that players are making use of Link’s new abilities to get one over on and generally torment the woodland folk.
