Breath of the Wild In-Game Description

The Rusty Claymore is a two-handed sword found in Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity, and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Rusty Claymores have a base power of 12, and can usually be found dotted around Hyrule, usually by ruined buildings or outhouses. It appears to bear resemblance to a Soldier's Claymore, but over the ages it has been wrecked and virtually unusable.

Feeding a Rusty Claymore to a Rock Octorok will cause it to spit out an as-new Hylia Series claymore. Which version it will spit out is partly random, and partly determined by World Level.

Age of Calamity

Rusty Claymores are a weapon type which cannot be used in battle. To make them usable, they must be taken to the Hylian Blacksmith Guild for "de-rusting" after the completion of the "From Rusty to Trusty" quest. The Guild improves their de-rusting services further with the completion of the "Better Rust-Busting" and "Road to Rust Research" quests.

Tears of the Kingdom

"A two-handed sword not properly cared for. Although it can be used as a weapon, its durability is very low. Don't expect it to last for more than a few strikes."

Tears of the Kingdom In-Game Description

The Rusty Claymore is similar to its first appearance in Breath of the Wild. It can be found early in Link's adventure, typically around the Central Hyrule region. It has a very low attack power at 6, and will break very easily.
