Ghost Of Tsushima Armor Guide: Every Location With Armor To Find
Here's where to get all the outfits in Ghost of Tsushima on PS4, including the coveted Ghost Armor.
By Matt Espineli on August 2, 2020 at 11:36AM PDT
Ghost of Tsushima has a variety of useful armor sets that help make you a formidable foe against the Mongol invasion. Most of these outfits have their own special perks that enhance your abilities in various ways. For instance, some armor sets better cater to stealthy players, like the highly-coveted Ghost Armor set, while others strengthen offensive power--though the minutiae of such gets deeper with each set.
You'll acquire several of the armor sets by completing story missions, but there are a bunch more that are only attainable completing various side-missions, including Mythic Tales, which unlock at different points in the game. Here's the full rundown of where to get every set of armor and what they're good for.

Traveler's attire, samurai clan armor, ronin attire, tadayori's armor, gosaku's armor, kensei armor, sakai clan armor, ghost armor, mongol commander's armor.
To help you find and understand all of Ghost of Tsushima's armor sets, we've compiled the guide below, which details how to get them, their perks, and what they look like when upgraded. We've got plenty more guides and coverage to help you get everything out of the game. Check out our full Ghost of Tsushima guide rundown , and if you haven't already, read our Ghost of Tsushima review .
You start the game with the Broken Armor set--though it isn't quite broken until after you've cleared the prologue section. It has no particular perks or advantages, so it's really just a cosmetic set you keep just for the heck of it. You definitely don't want to wear this any longer than you have to after the game's world opens up, so quickly discard it and wear a better set as soon as you get one. Still, it does have memories attached--the death of your old ways and the beginning of your path towards becoming a dishonorable proto-ninja. Good times.

Also, for some reason this set featured in all of the technique videos? It's a weird choice. Whatever, this battered and bloody set is only for those who insist on playing the game at a disadvantage.

Recommended For: Players who want to optimize exploration and collecting Artifacts.
How To Unlock: The Traveler's Attire is automatically given to you by the first Merchant you speak to in the game.
What It Does: As armor, the Traveler's Attire doesn't offer any additional protection, but it does look way cool. It super fits Jin's attempts to more or less look like a mysterious wanderer during the beginning of the game. But what the Traveler's Attire does do is enhance is your ability to track and sense Artifacts in the world. Artifacts are special collectible items that further expand on the state of Tsushima. Some Artifacts even yield tangible rewards if you collect enough. Sashimono Banners, for example, can be exchanged for new horse saddles when you collect enough.
With the Traveler's Attire on, your controller will vibrate when near an Artifact and the Guiding Wind will point to them from time to time. Though oddly enough, you can also sense Vanity Gear with the Traveler's Attire. Lastly, as you explore the world with the Traveler's Attire equipped, it clears more fog of war from the map, making it easier to find side-activities and points of interest.
Recommended For: Players who want to get up close and personal with their enemies.
How To Unlock: The Samurai Clan Armor is given to you for free during The Tale of Lady Masako--one of the first story missions you can do after the world opens up at the start of Act 1.
What It Does: The Samurai Clan Armor is a sturdy set that helps make you quite the resilient fighter. It reduces damage from enemies, increases your maximum health, and even builds up your Resolve upon being damaged. This is definitely for ideal for situations or missions early on where you're charging into the heat of battle, taking on numerous waves of enemies.
Recommended For: Players who enjoy being both loud and stealthy.
How To Unlock: You get the Ronin Attire as a reward for completing Blood on the Grass, a story mission that becomes available after clearing The Broken Blacksmith--which is the first mission you do with Yuna after the world opens up at the start of Act 1.
What It Does: With the Ronin Attire equipped, you get an increase to your melee damage and a reduction to enemy detection speed. This is a great outfit to wear for those who want to ride the line between going loud and stealthy--just like a real morally questionable ronin. Another cool perk of the Ronin Attire is that enemies are slower to detect you after leaving pampas grass while crouched, further improving its functionality as a stealth-focused armor set.
Lastly, the Ronin Attire is the set you want to wear when you want to feel and look like Toshiro Mifune from Yojimbo . Okay, him and maybe hundreds of other classic samurai film protagonists. Whatever, this game needs to patch in the ability to say "abayo" (casual goodbye in Japanese) and coolly walk away as if nothing happened. I would use this at the end of every Tale. Joking aside, the Ronin Attire is a great all-around balanced armor set and should be a mainstay in your outfit lineup.
Recommended For: Players who love using bows.
How To Unlock: You get Tadayori's Armor by completing The Legend of Tadayori Mythic Tale, which becomes available after completing a few story missions early on during Act 1. You can find the Tale just south of the river at the Rustling Bend in the Izuhara region. For more details, check out our Mythic Tales walkthrough .
What It Does: Tadayori's Armor is a set that benefits those who rely on the bow. Its perks increase your ability to pick off enemies and mostly keep your distance. Equipping the outfit increases your draw and reload speed, while increasing your total Concentration time. Headshots also restore more of your Concentration meter, ensuring that you're always getting as much time as possible to line up shots. Ghost of Tsushima's combat flow prevents you from being an all-out ranged fighter, but Tadayori's Armor at least allows for a thrilling hit-and-run playstyle. I highly recommend using it every once in a while just to see how you like it.
Recommended For: Aggressive players who are--quite frankly--sick and tired of enemies guarding so much.
How To Unlock: Gosaku's Armor is your reward for completing the The Unbreakable Gosaku Mythic Tale. You gain access to the Tale at the start of Act 2. It's a short ways southeast of Akashima village--you can't miss it. This Tale is quite involved, requiring you to liberate five Mongol-occupied farms to get the key items necessary to unlock the way to the armor. For more details, check out our Mythic Tales walkthrough .
What It Does: Gosaku's Armor allows aggressive players to really take the wind out of enemies. It provides an increase to your Stagger damage and gives you some health back after killing a Staggered enemy. If you're unfamiliar with how Staggering works, it's the damage you do with heavy attacks to an enemy's defense. When you inflict enough on your foe, you'll break their guard, leaving defenseless. Gosaku's Armor is all about ensuring you Stagger enemies often, and with the slight bump it also gives to your maximum health, you'll have a better chance of staying in the game to do so.
Recommended For: Scrappy offensive players who enjoy using Ghost Weapons.
How To Unlock: The Kensei Armor is your reward for completing The Six Blades of Kojiro Mythic Tale. You gain access to this Tale during Act 2, where it can be found in Umugi Cove after clearing the first section of the story mission there called A Message in Fire. For more details about the Six Blades of Kojiro, check out our Mythic Tales walkthrough .
What It Does: The Kensei Armor rewards those who rely on Ghost Weapons in battle. When equipped, your Ghost Weapons deal more damage, and hitting an enemy with one causes that enemy to deal less damage and receive more damage. Lastly, you get an increase your Resolve gains during combat, ensuring that you can always recover from a hit or two as you're lobbing Kunai and Sticky Bombs at everyone.
Recommended For: Offensive players who want a balanced armor set that rewards upholding the tenets of being a samurai.
How To Unlock: The Sakai Clan Armor is given to you during Ghosts from the Past story mission, which you can complete as soon as you arrive to the Toyotoma region at the start of Act 2.
What It Does: The Sakai Clan Armor provides a solid boost to your melee damage and maximum health, but its most notable perk is increasing your Standoff Streak and the chances of terrifying enemies after winning one. The streak increase even stacks onto the maximum three you can do with all the Standoff Streak techniques unlocked, allowing you a total of five by the time the set is fully upgraded. In a way, the Sakai Clan Armor rewards those who fairly approach and challenge enemies--though it's not so fair with that killstreak perk.
Recommended For: Players who want to emphasize stealth and strike terror in the hearts of their enemies.
How To Unlock: You get Ghost Armor the moment you start the From the Darkness story mission during the end of Act 2.
What It Does: The Ghost Armor rewards stealthy players by reducing enemy detection speed, the number of kills needed to enter the Ghost Stance, and even increases the chances of terrifying a nearby enemy. It's unfortunate that you don't get this set until a little later into the game, but once you do, it's likely to become a mainstay when you're sneaking about and engaging in all manner of dishonorable combat tactics. Be the Ghost (and not the Batman).
Recommended For: Players who want to absorb a lot of damage and play practical jokes on Mongols.
How To Unlock: You get the Mongol Commander's Armor as a reward for completing Fit for the Khan--a Tale of Tsushima you can complete as soon as you gain access to Jogaku Temple in the Kamigata region during Act 3. The side-mission is a bit time-consuming, as it requires you to liberate some Mongol-occupied territory to get all of its parts. For more details about Fit for the Khan, check out our Tales of Tsushima walkthrough .
What It Does: The Mongol Commander's Armor is a hefty set that increases your health and reduces a ton of damage, making it pretty ideal for big fights. It bears noting that it cannot be upgraded past its base stats, but that won't matter much when you realize its final perk: massively reducing Mongol detection speed. That's right, this set is essentially a disguise you can use to easily sneak into Mongol camps without arousing too much suspicion--you'll still need to use some discretion as you walk in front of Mongols, of course. Regardless, the Mongol Commander's Armor is a set you can use to be a total pest. It's wonderful.
Recommended For: Players who like streaking...I m-mean sneaking.
How To Unlock: The Fundoshi is your reward for resting at all 18 hot springs. If you haven't found them all, then check out our Hot Springs locations guide .
What It Does: The Fundoshi is less of an armor set and more...Well, it's basically traditional Japanese underwear. And in Ghost of Tsushima, wearing nothing but a Fundoshi makes it so that running and sprinting no longer creates any noise. That's actually super useful! It comes highly recommended if you're fond of sprinting through Mongol-occupied territory at the dead of night just for the thrill of it. That, and it makes every cutscene a great laugh.
Finally, if you're a true master of combat, then the Fundoshi is a solid way to up the stakes. After all, in the words of Jin Sakai after too much sake: "A true samurai needs no clothes."

Armor guide - armor locations and upgrades.
While there are many types of cosmetic Vanity Gear in Ghost of Tsushima, Jin can collect and equip several types of Armor that provide significant and upgrade-able bonuses. The armor you equip can heavily influence your playstyle, and while some armor is gained over the course of the story, others can only be found by undertaking certain Mythic Tale side quests and objectives.
Below you'll find a list of all types of Armor that you can find in the game, where to find them, and the properties that can be upgraded - as well as different applicable armor dyes you can get for them.
List of Armor
The white and black dye merchants.
There are two unique merchants hiding in the island of Tsushima who have entirely unique armor and bow dyes from any other merchant you will encounter - and can be hard to track down.
The White Dye Merchant is located in upper Kashine prefecture of the Izuhara region, found along a mountain called Wanderer's Pass on the map, north of Kashine Forest. Take the roads west along the peak to find his home nestled in the back.
The Black Dye Merchant is located in the northeast section of the Kushi Prefecture of the Toyotama region, in a cave up in the hills just east of Kawamata Village along a dirt road.
- Location: Default Armor
The Broken Armor is the default armor that you start the game with after and during the events of the Prologue . Unlike all other armor you can obtain, this armor provides no bonuses, cannot be upgraded, nor can it be dyed any other color.
It's highly recommended you swap out of this armor as early as possible, either by taking on main quests or by getting the Traveler's Attire.
- Location: Given by any Merchant upon first encounter
The Traveler's Attire is a special exploration-focused armor that you can find soon after completing the Prologue . Unlike other armor you find, the Traveler's Attire is given as a gift by speaking to any Merchant in the game for the first time. This includes any Merchant found at any of the Survivor Camps, liberated mongol forts, or Hiyoshi Springs.
While it does not provide any combat bonuses, it does allow you to track certain collectibles you encounter, and can also track points of interest if you invest in Exploration Techniques. It's base abilities include:
- Track Artifacts with the Guiding Wind
- Traveling clears 10% more fog of war on the map
- Controller will vibrate when within 10m of an Artifact
Samurai Clan Armor
- Location: Speak to the Golden Temple Armorer during The Tale of Lady Masako quest.

After exploring the Adachi estate and meeting with Lady Masako, she will send you into Golden Temple to talk to the armorer, where you will get the armor for free.
Once belonging to one of Lady Masako's sons, the Samurai Clan Armor is a tried and true set of gear that is well suited to any combat situation, as it both increases health and decreases damage taken. It's base abilities include:
- Reduces all damage by a moderate amount.
- Moderate increase to health
- Taking damage grants 15% Resolve
- Location: Given by Ryuzo upon the completion main quest Blood on the Grass .

This armor, like the Samurai Clan Armor, cannot be missed as it is given during one of the main story quests, Blood on the Grass . After meeting and fighting Mongols with Ryuzo, leader of the Straw Hat Ronin, follow him back to his base and open a chest to gain the armor.
Worn by those without masters, the Ronin Attire excels at offense and stealth, as it enhances your ability to sneak up on foes - especially in the white tall pampas grass, and dispatch those you are unable to assassinate with increased damage. It's base abilities include:
- Reduces enemy detection speed by 10%
- Increases melee damage by 15%
- Enemies will detect you much slower after leaving pampas grass while crouched.
- Location: Accept the Mythic Tale quest - The Legend of Tadayori , at a small camp below Rustling Bend in the Azamo prefecture, and locate Tadayori's Rest to find his armor.
The Tadayori's Armor is a ranged-focused armor that you can find via an optional Mythic Tale in the Izuhara region starting in Act 1 . After hearing about a musician at a unmarked camp near Rustling Bend, follow the clues in The Legend of Tadayori quest to reach the "Violet Crown" in the Azamo prefecture, and find the armor stashed on the cliffs above the Azamo Bay village.
The armor of a legendary archer, Tadayori's Armor is perfect for ranged fighting, as it will bolster your ability to shoot more arrows at enemy at a much more rapid pace, and will enhance your Concentration technique. It's base abilities include:
- Increases nocking and reloading speed by 15%
- Increases total Concentration time by 1 second
- Headshots restore 25% of the Concentration meter
Sakai Clan Armor
- Location: Complete the main quest Ghosts from the Past in the Kubara prefecture in the northwest area of the Toyotama Region.
The Sakai Clan Armor is the ancestral armor of Jin's lineage, last worn by his late father, and has now passed down to him. It is as intimidating as it is powerful, and can be found early on in Act 2 , as long as you decide to take on the furthest of the main quests early.
The armor is very melee-focused, with the added bonus of allowing you to challenge more enemies to a face-off, and increasing your streak bonus even further when upgraded. It's base abilities include:
- Moderate increase to melee damage
- Increase Standoff streak by 1, and winning has a 10% chance to terrify nearby enemies.
- Location Found: Complete the Mythic Tale, The Unbreakable Gosaku that begins in Akashima Village, and collect 6 keys to unlock the path to this armor in the Akashima Prefecture of Toyotama
The Gosaku's Armor is a legendary samurai armor with impressive defense, but can only be unlocked after liberating six different farmsteads across both the Izuhara and Toyotama regions of Tsushima - which you will be alerted to after starting Act 2 . After getting 6 keys from the villagers, you can return to a large peak to the east of the Old Togo Rice Fields to find the path up the cliff to get the armor.
Gosaku's Armor is a very melee-focused armor, with a focus on destroying the defenses of enemies and staggering them to break their guards. It's base abilities include:
- Grants a moderate increase to health
- Grants a moderate increase to Stagger damage

The quest will lead you on a chase across the region to face off against 5 assassins, culminating in a duel in a cave behind a monastery in the Kubara region to gain the armor.
The armor is very skill based, and increases your prowess with Ghost weaponry and resolve gain to make the most of your techniques. It's base abilities include:
- Increase Resolve gains by 15%.
- Ghost Weapon damage increased by 15%.
- Striking enemies with Ghost Weapons cause them to deal 25% less damage, and take 25% more damage.
Mongol Commander's Armor
- Location Found: Obtained by completing the Side Mission, Fit for the Khan , found in Act 3 after completing the Wolves at the Gate mission. It's located in Jogaku Temple.
The Mongol Commander's armor is perfect to become a human shield, increasing Jin's health and reducing damage by a large amount. You can find the armor in Act 3 in the Jogaku region by completing Fit for the Khan . The quest will lead you on a chase across the region to liberate four mongol camps, retrieving one piece of the armor in each. Once you're done, the armor (who was supposed to be delivered to the Khan himself) will be yours.
Along with increasing your health and defense, it will also serve as disguise when you are out of combat, reducing Mongol detection speed by a large margin.
- Major increase to health.
- Reduces all damage by a Major amount.
- Disguises you while out of combat, massively reducing Mongol detection speed.
As a caveat, the Mongol Commander's armor cannot be upgraded.
- Location Found: Obtained by completing the main mission From The Darkness , which takes place at the end of Act 2 .
The Ghost armor is a stealth and ghost skills focused armor that you can find in the end of Act 2 with the From The Darkness mission. Yes, this is the armor you've seen in Ghost of Tsushima's official art, and it's perfect for those who want to fight dishonorably, using the Ghost Stance as much as possible, staying in the shadows, and terrifying enemies.
This armor set is perfect for those who prefer to play quietly, causing fear on enemies and remaining undetected for longer.
- Reduces enemy detection speed by 25%.
- Reduces the number of kills needed to enter the Ghost Stance by 1.
- Kills have a 15% chance to Terrify a nearby enemy.

Ghost of Tsushima All Armor Set Locations (Outfits Showcase)
July 16, 2020 by PowerPyx 10 Comments
Ghost of Tsushima lets you equip Body Armor, Helmets, and Masks. This guide shows all Armor Set locations (how to get every armor) and a showcase what the armor looks like.
Armor is unlocked in 4 ways: From Main Tales , from Side Tales , from Haiku Collectibles , found in the open world. None of the armor is missable, you can still find all of it after the story in free-roam. It doesn’t matter what dialogue choices and ending you pick during the story.
Each armor has different effects. You can upgrade most body armor at the armorer in exchange for materials (such as Supplies, Linen and Silk). Some armor is more combat oriented, while other armor is better for stealth or exploration. The helmets and masks don’t have any effect and are for customization only. You can also add Dye to your armor after buying it from a merchant.
That’s all of the armor / outfits in Ghost of Tsushima.

These are pretty great! Is this all of them though? Some early players where saying they were around 15 sets. Also could we get a guide showing all the sword kits?
July 17, 2020 at 9:29 pm
That’s all of them 🙂 Only 11 body armor sets.
July 23, 2020 at 8:30 am
Some people got the pre order armor. that will count as one that is not listed here.

Invest In Samurai Clan Armor
You will receive the Samurai Clan Armour when you go through The Tale Of Lady Masako . This is a good armor to invest early on in the game as it boosts health, defense, and regains Resolve - which you can use to heal or deal damage.
Sakai Clan Armor For Aggressive Play

Home » Ghost of Tsushima » Ghost of Tsushima Armor Locations, Attires & Outfits
Your character in Ghost of Tsushima can wear a great many outfits and armor sets. They’ll change the way Jin looks, but that’s not all – they’ll also affect his stats, making him stronger, more silent or resilient. You’ll get some while playing through the main story, but others are hidden away behind optional activities, like side quests and mythic tales. This guide will show you a list of all armor, outfits and attire in Ghost of Tsushima , what they look like and how to get them.
- Traveler’s Attire
- Samurai Clan Armor
- Tadayori’s Armor
- Sakai Clan Armor
- Ghost Armor
- Mongol Commander’s Armor
- Kensei Armor
- Gosaku’s Armor
Ghost of Tshushima Customizations
Don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re stuck with the predetermined designs – the game allows you to customize pretty much every part of your gear. You can change colors, styles and more – if you want detailed info on how the whole system works, check out our guide on Ghost of Tsushima customization .
Traveler’s Attire location
The Traveler’s Attire is the first outfit you can find in the game. While you’re going towards Hiyashi Springs, to ask around at the inn, you’ll meet a merchant by the road. Talk to him – he’ll recognize you and give you the armor as a gift.
Traveler’s Attire allows you to track artifacts with the guiding wind, clears 10% more fog of war when you travel, and makes the controller vibrate when you’re within 30m of an artifact.
Samurai Clan Armor – Ghost of Tsushima
You can get the Samurai Clan Armor outfit from the armorer in the Golden Temple, during the Tale of Lady Masako. It will reduce the damage you take, increase your health and grant more resolve when you get hit.
The Ronin Attire is a reward for completing the Blood in The Grass main quest. It’s an outfit that reduces enemy detection speed, increases melee damage and the time enemies need to detect you after you leave pampas grass while crouched.
Tadayori’s Armor Map
You’ll get Tadayori’s Armor by completing the Legend of Tadayori mythic tale. Wearing it will increase your nocking and reload speed, give you more concentration time and make headshots restore a percentage of the concentration meter.
Sakai Clan Armor Stats
The Sakai Clan Armor is obtained during the Ghosts from The Past main quest, before you face off against the Straw Hats at the estate. It will increase your melee damage and health, as well as the standoff streak. Winning a standoff with it has a chance to terrify nearby enemies.
Ghost Armor Location
You’ll get the Ghost Armor when you start the main quest called From the Darkness. Wearing it will reduce enemy detection speed, as well as the number of kills needed to enter the Ghost stance. Each kill will have a chance to terrify nearby enemies.
Mongol Commander’s Armor – Ghost of Tsushima
You can get the Mongol Commander’s Armor by completing the Fit for the Khan side quest. Once you’ve finished all the tasks, talk to the apprentice in Jogaku and he’ll make it fit. When worn, this outfit increases your health, reduces incoming damage and makes Mongols much slower to detect you out of combat.
Kensei Armor Stats
You can get the Kensei Armor by completing the Six Blades of Kojiro mythic tale. Wearing it increases your resolve gain, makes Ghost weapons do more damage and causes enemies stricken by them to deal less and receive more damage themselves.
Gosaku’s Armor Map
To get Gosaku’s Armor, you’ll have to complete the Unbreakable Gosaku mythic tale. If you decide to use it, you’ll get increased health and stagger damage, and it’ll allow you to restore health when killing staggered enemies.
Fundoshi is not actual armor – it’s a pair of cotton undergarments. The description implies Jin favors it when he gets drunk, and it will allow you to run and sprint silently. You can get it by visiting all 18 hot springs.
Masks in Ghost of Tsushima
Masks are vanity items that cover the lower half of Jin’s face – his mouth and sometimes his nose. They don’t affect your stats, but they will change the way you look. Here’s a list of all the masks in the game and where to find them:
- Sakai Mask – Obtained during Ghosts From the Past main quest.
- Ghost Mask – Obtained during From the Darkness main quest.
- Conqueror’s Mask – Complete Fit for the Khan side quest.

‘Ghost Of Tsushima’ guide: How to find every set of armour
Learn how to unlock and when to equip every armour set in Sucker Punch’s new game
For a scorned samurai such as Jin Sakai, armour constitutes an important part of his identity – it’s the thing that keeps him from the pointy end of Mongol weapons as he attempts to liberate Tsushima Island.
There are several armour sets to find throughout Ghost Of Tsushima , but which equipment is the best? In this guide, we’ll run through all of the armour sets in the game, and show you how to find and use them.
How does armour work in Ghost Of Tsushima ?
Over the course of Ghost Of Tsushima , you will encounter new armour sets and equipable items, and you’ll be able to swap your attire at any time by entering the pause menu and heading to the ‘Gear’ tab. When equipping armour, keep in mind that both the mask and helmet options don’t matter when it comes to statistics – only the base armour will give Jin special buffs.

You can upgrade armour by visiting Armourers, who are often found within the game’s many sanctuaries. You’ll have to farm for materials to upgrade your armour, and upgraded sets will offer aesthetic changes as well as increased buffs. It’s good practice to figure out which armour you like the most using the list below, then try to funnel your resources into upgrading it to its maximum potential, so you can be as potent as possible in battle.
1 Broken Armor
How to unlock: Jin will start the game wearing this armour.
Jin’s Broken Armor is a holdover from the dreadful events of the prologue and offers no bonuses to his abilities. You should endeavour to find a new set as soon as possible so you can reap its rewards.
2 Ronin Attire
How to unlock: You’ll get this via main story progression, once you complete the Blood On The Grass tale.
The Ronin Attire reduces enemy detection speed by 20 per cent, increases the melee damage you deal by 30 per cent at max level and makes it harder for enemies to detect you when you leave a field of Pampas. It’s useful if you’ve got nothing else in the early game but you should focus on the other armour sets first, which offer more bulky upgrades in damage-dealing and protection.
3 Samurai Clan Armor
How to unlock: You’ll get this via main story progression, after completing The Tale Of Lady Masako.
The Samurai Clan Armor is a great early-game set. Mainly, it reduces all damage by a major amount, gives you a massive health buff and provides a percentage of your resolve back when you get damaged. This means that if you’re wearing this armour, you should play as aggressively as possible and actively seek to take damage so you can restore your ability meter.
4 Traveler’s Attire
How to unlock: In Hiyoshi Prefecture, you can get this armour set by talking to the local merchant, but it should unlock when talking to any merchant in the game.
You should use this armour throughout the game whenever you’re exploring, as it clears 30 per cent more fog than normal, making it a fantastic means to uncover the entire map and find all of the hidden objectives.
It also unlocks a feature on the map screen where you can track artefacts with the guiding wind, as well as making your controller vibrate if you’re 60 metres from an artefact at max level. It’s not great for combat however, so do switch it out before battle once you’ve finished exploring.
5 Tadayori’s Armor
How to unlock: Tadayori was a legendary archer, so you’ll need to complete the Legend Of Tadayori mythic tale to find this suit. It’s accessible early on via the Azamo Bay Musician.
This is the armour for you if you’re mostly concerned with archery in Ghost Of Tsushima . At max level, it increases nocking and reload speed by 30 per cent, and buffs your concentration time by two seconds. This means you’ll have more time to place careful headshots with the bow in slow motion, once you’ve unlocked the concentration ability. You’ll also restore 50 per cent of your concentration if you land a headshot, meaning you can perpetually restore concentration if you’re an accurate shot.
6 Sakai Clan Armor
How to unlock: You’ll get this via main story progression, after completing the Ghosts From The Past tale.
This is a fantastic armour set for the mid-game, as it gives Jin a major increase to his melee damage and a massive boost to his health at max level. The best part is that the Sakai Clan Armor will add two to your Standoff streak, which means you can wipe out five enemies as soon as you kick off any battle, as long as you can nail the mini-game timing. If you manage to pull it off, you’ll also have a chance to terrify nearby enemies, which renders them useless in battle.
7 Kensei Armor
How to unlock: Find the musician in Umugi Cove and complete The Six Blades Of Kojiro mythic tale by finding and duelling all of the Straw Hats in Toyotama.
This furry armour is well worth the effort. Beyond the 30 per cent Resolve gains, the real benefits lie within the way it affects Ghost Weapons, like your Kunai and Sticky Bombs. Ghost Weapons deal a whopping 30 per cent more damage with the Kensei Armour equipped at max level.
The best part? If you hit someone with a Ghost Weapon, they’ll deal 50 per cent less damage to you, and they’ll receive 50 per cent more damage from Ghost Weapons – essentially, they get tagged with a devastating debuff. Definitely seek this one out if you’re struggling to take out groups of enemies.
8 Gosaku’s Armor
How to unlock: Find the musician in Akashima, the first village you reach in Toyotama – after you activate the Gosaku quests, liberate outposts in Izuhara and Toyotama to find keys that will eventually let you find the resting place of Gosaku’s Armour.
This armour is a great all-rounder: it gives you a massive boost to your health and it also has the capacity to leech from enemies, where killing a staggered enemy will restore 20 per cent of your health at max level. This is complementary to the final stat bonus, which offers a major increase to the amount of stagger damage you deal. Gosaku’s Armor is one of the best sets in the game.
How to unlock: Complete every Hot Spring in the game.
This little loincloth will make it so that Jin makes no sound when running or sprinting in, which is super useful for stealth, but beyond that, your nakedness renders you extremely susceptible to damage – it’s very high risk versus high reward, so equip it with caution!
10 Mongol Commander’s Armor
How to unlock: On the third island of Kamiagata, the townsfolk will reward you with pieces of armour from a Mongol Commander when you liberate outposts. Collect them all and speak to the blacksmith to unlock the whole set.
At max level, this set gives you a major increase in health and majorly reduces all damage, but the most important benefit is the loss in detection speed – you’re disguised as a Mongol, so you don’t need to worry about being jumped during exploration. Makes clearing camps a breeze.
11 Ghost Armor
How to unlock: You’ll unlock this armour in the late game, as part of the main story – no spoilers here!
This armour reduces enemy detection speed by 40 per cent at max level and gives you a 30 per cent chance to Terrify enemies, which means that they’ll start crawling away from you in fear, readying them up for a resolve-gaining stab. However, the best part is that it cuts two from the number of chained kills you need to enter Ghost Stance – use this to your advantage so you can clean up camps in quick succession.

Ghost of Tsushima: How to Get Kensei Armor
Kensei Armor is perhaps the best armor in Ghost of Tsushima, and this guide contains all of the details that players need to get it.
Ghost of Tsushima 's Kensei Armor is arguably the best armor set in the game, increasing Jin's Resolve gains, boosting the damage dealt by his Ghost Weapons, and more. That said, the Kensei Armor in Ghost of Tsushima does not come extremely easily, and indeed players that wish to obtain it will need to tackle a fairly extensive Mythic Tale.
The Mythic Tale in question is called The Six Blades of Kojiro, and Ghost of Tsushima fans should visit the southwest corner of Toyotama to start it. More specifically, the player needs to speak with the musician (Yamato) who is located inside of the large building in Umugi Cove. If a fans does not find Yamato in this location then they should complete side quests for the distressed woman in Umugi Cove until he appears.
RELATED: Ghost of Tsushima: How to Get Gosaku Armor
Once the Mythic Tale has been obtained, players will find that it is primarily comprised of GoT duels against five Straw Hats, and their locations show up as swordsmen on the in-game map. Notably, these battles can prove somewhat challenging, and fans will need to use all of the tools at their disposal to come out on top. Even still, players may need to make several attempts before they successfully dispatch these foes.
After a fan is victorious in all five of these duels they should then return to Umugi Cove and speak with Yamato, who will now send Jin Sakai north to the Omi Monastery. In this location fans will find a large statue, and they should head down the path to the right when facing its front. Following this path will eventually lead the player to a cave and the final fight for the Kensei Armor.
To note, while the Kensei Armor is the real prize for completing The Six Blades of Kojiro Mythic Tale, fans that tackle this quest will also receive the Kensei Headband and the Charm of Unseen Respite, which causes Smoke Bombs to restore 25% of a player's health. Certainly this Ghost of Tsushima Charm can be strong in some situations, but it does not quite match the power level of the Kensei Armor.
Ghost of Tsushima is out now exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
