If you're ready to get the party started, what better weapon to do it with than the Party Starter? Here's how to finish this dizzying quest.

How to get the Party Starter weapon

After getting to the Ocean Avenue hub, you will need to begin the Drunk and Disorderly Lost and Found quest to start your march to this Legendary weapon.

Step 1: Go to the first-floor bathroom marked "Staff Only" in the Serling Hotel.

Step 2: Kill the zombie inside and retrieve the note called "Dudes Who Chug" to begin the quest.

Step 3: Fast travel to the Blue Crab HQ in Venice Beach and go right down the street to Rose's Tattoos on the corner.

Step 4: Go inside and kill the zombie named Grant. Pick up the next journal he drops.

Step 5: The next stop you need to make is at Green Gang.

Step 6: This can be found north of your current location, almost at the top of the map.

Step 7: Outside the store, find a broken shutter that a zombie named Cole will crawl out of.

Step 8: Pick up the next clue he drops that points you toward Pier Grill.

Step 9: Fast travel over to Santa Monica Pier.

Step 10: Go to the Pier Grill restaurant and find the next journal on a bloody table outside.

Step 11: You should be attacked by several zombies, including one named Jordan.

Step 12: Defeat Jordan and collect his car keys.

Step 13: Take those keys all the way back to Ocean Avenue and go to the mall.

Step 14: Go inside the parking garage and check the first parking spot on the left for a white car.

Step 15: Use Jordan's keys to pop open the trunk and you can finally get the Party Starter!

The Party Starter is a unique brass knuckle weapon. It deals fire damage, has higher impact damage at the cost of lower speed, gives a buff to your fire resistance when you knock down or kill a zombie, and every kill gives you a damage recharge boost to heavy strikes.

How to get Autobuild and all schema locations in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Link using autobuild to build a fanplane.

At first, you might be disappointed to see that Link has lost all his core abilities from Breath of the Wild when you first begin The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. While those moves were great, what replaces them is even better, and you will likely forget all about those old ones in a matter of hours. Ultrahand in particular is essentially limitless in what you can do with it. Building contraptions, most often vehicles, is easy and intuitive. Still, sometimes you know what you want to build and would rather skip the process of, you know, building it. For that, the game offers you Autobuild.

However, like so many things in Tears of the Kingdom, you have to seek it out in order to utilize it, and the game is perfectly fine with you never stumbling upon it. To save you time building those common contraptions, here's everything you need to know about Autobuild, plus where to find all the Schema Stones in Tears of the Kingdom.
