Ghost of Tsushima All Weapons List
There are twelve different weapons in Ghost of Tsushima that you can obtain throughout the game.
Location: Jin starts with this weapon
The Sakai Clan Katana is Jin’s primary melee weapon and the one you’ll use most during your adventure through the game. It’s incredibly versatile, and you’ll gain a host of abilities that make it more deadly. It can also be upgraded to be even more potent by visiting swordsmiths.
Location: Obtained in Act I automatically as part of the story.
The Sakai Clan Tanto is the second part of Jin’s daisho, and is his primary stealth weapon. This dagger-like blade can only be used when the enemy is unaware. It’s typically an instant kill on lower-level enemies. You can upgrade the Tanto to cause more damage by visiting swordsmiths scattered throughout Tsushima.
Location: Obtained from Sensei Ishikawa in Act I as part of the main story.
The Half Bow is Jin’s first ranged weapon and is useful at short and mid-range. You can gain the ability to fire flaming arrows by completing the Ishikawa’s fourth Side Tale, “The Way of The Bow.”
Location: Rewarded for completing the Mythic Tale “The Curse of Uchitsune.”
The Long Bow is excellent for long-range sniping. The Long Bow’s heavier bow string takes longer to draw than the Half Bow’s, but it’s much more powerful.
Location: Obtained from Yuriko during the main story in Act II.
The Blow Gun can fire a poison dart that instantly kills any enemy it hits in a gruesome manner. If other enemies witness this death, they can potentially be scared off. You can also get Hallucination Darts by completing Yuriko’s first Side Tale, “The Proud Do Not Endure.” These darts cause enemies to go mad and fight anyone they see, friend or foe.
