"This once-fearsome sword has seen better days. It can do some damage in the right hands but also breaks quickly."
Hyrule Compendium

The Rusty Broadsword is an item in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a sword that has become rusted and as a result it has low durability.

It has a base attack power of 6, which interestingly makes it one point stronger than the Traveler's Sword, though the Traveler's Sword has higher durability.

Like other "Rusty" weapons, it can be refreshed into better single-handed swords by feeding it to Rock Octoroks when they are sucking in air, which will cause them to chew it up then spit out a better sword. This allows Link to obtain better two-handed swords such as the Soldier's Broadsword, Knight's Broadsword, and rarely the Royal Broadsword.

One spawns in a stone on a small island in a lake near the Temple of Time in the Great Plateau. They can also be found in ruins across Hyrule, though most commonly in the Hyrule Field region. They can also commonly be found in Eldin Canyon region. Additionally it is sometimes wielded by enemies.
