Weirdshot is a strange technique that involves detaching the first-person camera view from Link's actual position, often to a position out of bounds, allowing Link to Hookshot, use the Bow, Slingshot, or Boomerang on things or places where he normally would not be able to.
This method consists of doing a pause buffered A-Slide and pulling the Hookshot at the right time. This sends your camera OoB and allows for open aiming.
This method involves a different way to get your camera OoB. Instead of an A-slide, one pulls the Hookshot during a weird slide (this is what gave the name "weirdshot" to this trick despite it originally being found with an A-slide). It involves less pause buffering and is considered the easier method.
This is a setup for performing a weirdshot unbuffered. This setup allows for less exact inputs because there are multiple frames to roll, release R, and release Z on. This makes it slightly more practical to try unbuffered.
