Fighting enemies in Tears of the Kingdom is a challenge, but when you’re looking for certain enemies in particular, locating them is a challenge in itself. With the scale of the map, it can be hard to pinpoint exactly where to go to start farming for monster parts, especially when it comes to more sizeable enemies like Gleeok and Molduga, in particular. Due to Molduga spending most of its time under the sand, it can be hard to spot from higher locations and you’ll need a general idea of where to go if you want to try and fight one. Here’s all Molduga locations in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Where to Find Molduga in Tears of the Kingdom
Given its sand-dwelling nature, Molduga can only be found in the Gerudo Desert in Hyrule. The large expanse of land paired with the few areas for Link to duck and take cover mean there are ample opportunities for a Molduga to strike when you’re least expecting it, but we’ve pinpointed exactly where to head (or, where to avoid) if you are on the search.
Across the Gerudo Desert, you’ll be able to find and fight four Molduga. We’ve marked their general locations on the map below, but since this boss travels pretty quickly, they could be in the general area rather than exactly where we’ve placed our pins. That said, we’ve got a handful of coordinates to help guide you if you’re really struggling with where to look.
1) South of the Siwakama Shrine
The first Molduga can be found toward the south of the Siwakama shrine (-2438, -3357, 0040). In fact, if you stand on the edge of the cliff you’ll be able to see it tunneling about and possibly jumping out of the sand. It’s one of the easiest Moldugas to find straight off the bat, especially given how close it is to mainland Hyrule, so you should be in for an easy-ish boss battle given you know what you’re doing.
2) Northeast of the Southern Oasis
The second Molduga takes you to the west of the first, in the general direction of the Southern Oasis Training Area and the Karahatag Shrine (-3726, -3625, 0043). It took me a little while to spot this Molduga, but it can usually be found milling about in the clearing toward the right of the shrine, beyond the training area. Generally, when you struggle to find the arena for a Molduga battle, look for a circular same of solid ground, usually made up of a couple of rocks or boulders distanced from one another. In the middle of this, you should spot the Molduga rummaging under the sand.
3) West of Gerudo Town
As for the third Molduga, you’ll want to fast travel back to Gerudo Town and travel directly west (-4742, -2874, 0027). You’ll spot a little plume of smoke in the distance from a fire, which is exactly where you want to head. It’s just above the Mirotanog Shrine, and you won’t be able to miss it once you’re there. A Gerudo will be cowering in fear on top of a rock, which is a pretty obvious sign you’re in the right place. The Molduga will be visible in the center of the ring, ready to fight the second your feet touch the ground.
4) Southwest of North Gerudo Ruins
For the final Molduga, I found it easier to fast travel to Gerudo Town again and head north toward the North Gerudo Ruins (-4015, -2699, 0043). This Molduga is in a significant clearing before you reach the ruins, so you should be able to spot it from above if you’re gliding from Gerudo Town. There are a few ruins to jump between when fighting the Molduga, but also a few Electric Chuchu lurking beneath the sand which will jump up when you’re close, so as long as you’re prepared to battle you shouldn’t struggle too hard.

On top of that, it’s important to have some attack-boosting meals alongside a handful of strong weapons since you’ll need to be restoring your health as you go, especially if you’re charging in with all guns blazing.
