Home Run Contest Strategies

Bat Drop Arrow

Stand right next to the bag. Jump and a 3/4 second after the peak, drop the bat. Then, immediately press the B button. The combo does 25% damage max if you stand a few centimeters away from the Sandbag while doing the combo.

Bat Drop Fire Spike

Stand near the Sandbag facing either forwards or backwards. You can't be touching the Sandbag and you have to be a step or two away from it. Single jump and drop the bat at the peak of your jump. Then fastfall and press down+A when your body is parallel to the Sandbag. You did it correctly if Young Link's sword looks as if it is flaming. The combo does 35% damage max.
