Construct's Recommended Uses
Rockets Can Take You To Great Heights
If you attach the Rocket to your back and press the Y button, you can jump very high. However, the Rocket will start to exhaust when you jump up, so reaching the sky will not be possible.
Falling From A Height Will Not Damage Link
If you are on the Construct, you will not take damage if you fall from the sky to Surface. This is very useful when you want to descend from a high place for exploration or transportation.
Move Forward Without Being Affected By Gloom
Stepping on Gloom while on a Construct does not affect Link. The Construct also has lights, which are especially useful for moving around in the Depths search.
Bow In Slow Motion Can Be Used When Dismounting
If you hold the Bow at the moment you descend from the Construct, you will be in slow motion (B→A→ZR). During combat, this can be used to aim a headshot at the enemy.
Mind The Batteries While Riding
Construct runs on batteries, so even just walking consumes batteries. When all the batteries are used up, walking becomes slow and the effects of Zonai Devices are disabled. Therefore, while riding the Construct, keep an eye on the battery.
Construct's Combat Moves & Attacks
Guard & Repel Enemy Attacks
When the Construct is attacked, Link's hearts will take the hit. Therefore, it is recommended to guard with the ZL button and repel enemy melee attacks before counter-attacking with your own.
Attacking With Spikes Iron Ball Attached To Your Hand
If you equip it and then press the L or R button, you can attack an enemy with your hand with a Spikes iron ball attached to it.
Attach The Cannon For Long-Range Attacks
Attaching a Cannon to your hand allows you to attack enemies from a distance. Lock On firmly with the ZL Button, then use the Cannon.
Paralyze The Enemy With Shock Emitter
Attaching a Shock Emitter to your hand and attacking with it will temporarily stun the enemy. Apply an electric shock at the right moment when an attack is about to come and create an opening for attacks.
