The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has enough bodies of water that crabs were bound to make an appearance somewhere. It turns out there are several varieties of them, and they work beautifully as ingredients in the various dishes you might cook on your adventure. Here is our guide on where to find and farm Razorclaw Crabs in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Tears of the Kingdom – where to find and farm Razorclaw Crabs

Razorclaw Crabs are fond of salt water, which means you’ll find them in and near the ocean. That fact narrows down possible destinations quite a lot, but there are numerous beaches in southern Hyrule.

To find and farm Razorclaw Crabs, make your way to Martha’s Landing. You can get most of the way there if you fast travel Joju-u-u Shrine, which is located right near Lakeside Stable in the Faron region.

Travel just southwest from the shrine and you’ll reach an expansive sandy beach. Head west along the beach from the starting point pictured above.  You’ll find various crabs along the way, including Razorclaw Crab and Ironshell Crab. The latter are more common, in my experience, but a good run will still get you plenty of the desired variety. You can tell them apart by their color. Razorclaw Crabs are blue, while the Ironshell Crabs are red.

There’s no special trick to catching either variety of crab. Just run up to them and press the usual button to gather them as you would any standard crop. They do try to run from you when you get close, if you’re not creeping. However, they move slowly enough that you should have no trouble keeping up with them and grabbing them. You can continue running along the Martha’s Landing shore and then along Komo Shoreline.

As you advance west, you may encounter some enemies on the beach. Proceed with caution, as warranted. A lot of them attack with electricity. Crabs appear less frequently by the time you travel far enough west to reach the Lizalfos enemies on Puffer Beach, so that’s when I usually stop hunting for them.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available for purchase from the Nintendo Store.
