The Longshot is the upgraded version of the Hookshot. It is acquired in Ocarina of Time at the Water Temple after defeating the mini-boss Dark Link. As the name suggests, the Longshot can reach farther distances than the Hookshot.

The Longshot is a necessary part of the game in many ways. Players use its much longer reach to collect Gold Skulltulas, Heart Pieces, to defeat Morpha and to enter the Shadow Temple. In Gerudo Valley it can be used to cross the broken bridge rather than jump across on Epona, and in the Haunted Wasteland it can pull Link across the River of Sand rather than wearing the Hover Boots.
