Did You Know Link Can Ride On Giant Barrels In Zelda

Did You Know Link Can Ride On Giant Barrels In ZeldaNintendo Life

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch is now more than four years old and somehow players are still discovering new things within the kingdom of Hyrule.

Over the past few weeks, many players seem to have just found out that Link can actually ride large barrels in the game. It appears to have surprised everyone. Some commenters in the below Reddit post didn’t even know there were barrels this big in Breath of the Wild.

This is where you can find one of these giant barrels, according to the individual who posted the Reddit video (we also found it ourselves outside the Woodcutter’s house):

“I found this one on the Great Plateau near “Old Man’s hut”, IICRC there was one located at some ruins…

“There were also other comments that mentioned you can find it near somewhere on Lanayru Wetlands and Eventide Island.”

And here’s another look at it in action, courtesy of a few others – including Nintendo Life video producer, Jon Cartwright:

One other purpose giant barrels serve appear to be as cover to enter enemy locations undetected…

What do you think of this barrel roll Link can perform? Did you know you could do this in Breath of the Wild? Vote in our poll and leave a comment down below.

Iran exports 500,000 barrels of oil per day despite US sanctions

Iran’s crude oil exports since the start of the month have averaged around 500,000 barrels per day (bpd), according to a Reuters report that cites estimates from tanker tracking companies.

This is lower than March levels but much higher than a year ago, the report noted.

“Exports have continued at these elevated levels longer than we expected,” Reuters quoted the CEO of Petro-Logistics, Daniel Gerber, as saying. “And with constructive talks occurring in Vienna, we may never see a return to the 2020 lows.”

Calculating Iranian crude oil exports is difficult because of the cargo-masking and ship-to-ship transfers that Iran uses to circumvent US sanctions that caused a slump in both its production and exports of oil. Yet, with the change of administration in Washington, hopes have returned that the United States could rejoin the Iran nuclear deal and lift sanctions.

Rising Middle East production may trigger a new OIL PRICE WAR

Rising Middle East production may trigger a new OIL PRICE WAR

Earlier this year, Tehran officials said that the country had started to ramp up oil production in anticipation of an agreement with the United States, which could see some 2 million bpd of Iranian oil — or even 2.5 million bpd — return to international markets. However, negotiations are still ongoing, and their success remains uncertain. Meanwhile, however, discount Iranian oil is getting on the nerves of some of its fellow OPEC members.

“These ‘sensitive’ barrels are hammering supplies from everywhere, as they are simply too cheap,” one Chinese trader told Reuters earlier this month.

“The recent jump in Iranian crude exports, notably to China, and crude going out of inventories are contributing to the weakness of the oil market, undermining OPEC+ efforts to limit supply and setting prices for a third weekly drop,” Rystad Energy said in late March.

China is by far the biggest buyer of Iranian crude: its March imports of the discount crude could have reached 1 million bpd, according to a Reuters report citing analysts and commodity traders.

China set to buy millions of barrels of ‘cheap’ Iranian crude oil this month

China’s crude oil imports from Iran this month could reach close to one million barrels per day (bpd) as the country continues to gobble up ‘cheap’ crude from the Islamic Republic.

That would be almost half the amount Saudi Arabia exports to China.

An earlier report by Reuters from the beginning of the month said that China was buying record-high volumes of Iranian crude in anticipation of the Biden Administration lifting sanctions on Tehran. Even India, the report said, started planning for Iranian oil purchases.

Later in March, Washington warned China to stop buying oil from Iran, according to a senior administration official.

“We’ve told the Chinese that we will continue to enforce our sanctions,” the unnamed official told the FT. “There will be no tacit green light.” 

The Trump-era sanctions may be waived if Iran and the US make it to the negotiation table, but that still remains uncertain.

“Ultimately, our goal is not to enforce the sanctions; it is to get to the point where we lift sanctions and Iran reverses its nuclear steps,” the official told the FT.

Meanwhile, China is stocking up on cheap Iranian crude, most recently securing long-term supply with a deal worth $ 400 billion, under which China will invest heavily in various sectors of the Iranian economy over the next 25 years and will in exchange receive access to a steady flow of cheap oil.

Currently, Iran is masking the crude it sells to China as originating from other countries to avoid US sanctions. It is also undermining the efforts of its fellow members to keep prices stronger.

“The recent jump in Iranian crude exports, notably to China, and crude going out of inventories are contributing to the weakness of the oil market, undermining OPEC+ efforts to limit supply and setting prices for a third weekly drop,” Rystad Energy said, as quoted by Reuters.
