The Nioh 2 The First Samurai Mujina locations are important as players will want to save them to get the “A Friend Indeed” trophy. They aren’t collectibles like the Kodamas or hot springs, but these are the squirrel-like creatures that hide inside of chests. Here’s how to find all of the Mujina and how to save them in the “A Distant Dream” mission. Much like getting the Grilled Tang Sweets or getting Kukai’s brushes, this is also necessary for talking to the Mujina in the Interim for a later side mission.
Nioh 2 The First Samurai Mujina locations
There are three Mujina in the “A Distant Dream” mission in Nioh 2. To save them, players need to free them in different ways. Saving them nets turns them into a temporary ally until they die. Here’s where each Mujina in The First Samurai is.
The first Mujina in the level is near the big cyclops gate in the beginning. But don’t go there yet. Instead, go near the first hot spring (the rest of which can be found here). Get to this crossroads and go right (not left toward the gate and cyclops) and watch out for the crab that pops up.
Go all the way up and take the path on the right side. Drop down two different ledges and keep going.
There will be a path down to a house past a torch and a bone bridge. Go to the bone bridge.
Once crossing the bridge, look down to the left down a pit like in the above picture.
Hop down and talk to the little Mujina in there to save them.
There is a dark area a little later on in the level. It is also outside. Go into the dark zone.
There is staircase in that wooden area. Go down both flights of stairs.
There is a blobbly Nupeppo down there. Kill it and get the key.
After grabbing the key from the Nupeppo corpse, go to the cells in that very same room.
Unlock the door and talk to the Mujina.
The final Mujina is near the gate by the final elevator and penultimate shrine. Go down the hallway to the left that the arrow is pointing to.
Continue down the hall and go to the right by the elevator crank and down the hall with the yellow plants.
This will lead to the building in the above picture. Go into the room that the arrow is pointing to.
Go inside and talk to the final Mujina to get the trophy and ability to play a later side mission.
