Starting Location: Incident at Hiyoshi Pass
Find the bridge between Hiyoshi and Ariake
This is a fairly straightforward mission with a lot of archers annoying you. Follow the waypoint to a peasant and speak with him to start the quest.
Rescue Banta from the Mongol archers
It seems that the peasant’s nephew Banta is injured and lying in the middle of the bridge, letting the archers in the ravine below use him as bait for attack.
In total there are about a dozen archers divided between both sides of the canyon. They will all be fairly stationary, only going back and forth on their ledges, or dropping down to a lower one. You can try killing the archers from the top of the canyon if you have good aim, which will allow you to use the cliff edge to your advantage, only exposing yourself to fire from one row of archers at a time.
Alternately you can tackle this from ground level near the riverbank, which will also let you pick up any dropped arrows from the archers you kill. Either way, there isn’t a great deal of strategy here. Shoot them before they shoot you.
Once they’re all dead, rescue Banta. (Who sure runs well for an injured guy.)
Speak with Banta’s uncle
That’s it. That’s all there is to this mission. I’m not sure you needed this walkthrough.
This finishes the Incident at Hiyoshi Pass quest in Ghost of Tsushima.
