The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a glitch that allows toggling first-person mode in the game. Here’s how you can enable it.
First-person in a Zelda game is a unique experience especially if we are talking about Breath of the Wild, which is the first open-world Zelda game that has continued to sell despite launching four years ago. Fans have now discovered a glitch that lets Link view the game in first-person camera.
This glitch was first discovered by a fan who shared it on social media and it has been since replicated by others. It is a difficult one to pull at first but once you understand the timing of the glitch, it shouldn’t be that hard.
How To Activate First-Person Camera In Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Once you do this, you should be able to move around in first-person view. This is unfortunately not as useful as one might hope. It is only cool in that sense that you can view your surrounding in first-person but that’s it.
This is not the first time we have seen Zelda: Breath of the Wild in first-person. It was possible to mod the emulated version on PC to play through the entire game in first-person view, but this is the first time a glitch has been found that doesn’t require any modding to the game files to achieve first-person mode.
