Defeat the five Straw Hat Assassins
These are the 5 Straw Hat Assassin Locations:
You have to defeat the five Straw Hat Assassins (Ronin) in duels around Toyotama. Thankfully, they’re marked on your map and the locations are shown above. The five duels are Duel Under Autumn Leaves, Duel of Crashing Waves, Duel in the Drowning Marsh, Duel Among Spider Lilies and Duel Under Falling Water.
Duels are basically bosses, where you are one-on-one with another swordsman and you can’t use your throwables or bows. It’s a straight-up swordfight so you must constantly be dodging and parrying, striking on the counter when you can. If you have full Resolve and have learned Heavenly Strike or Dance of Wrath, you can spam them to deal significant damage to your enemies or even finish them off very quickly.
An easy method is to use is holding down in Water Stance, then releasing and hammering a few times for a long combo. Even though this stance is meant for breaking shields, it works quite well to break any guard. Because it does so many strikes, even if they are blocked it will drain the guard-bar quickly. Alternatively, the Stone Stance (which is specifically for Sword enemies like these the Ronin), is great when holding down and releasing, particularly if you upgraded this stance to do multiple strikes. Remember you can always switch to easy difficulty if these enemies are giving you trouble, or upgrade weapons/armor and come back later after the story.
Speak with the musician in Umugi Cove
Return to Yamato, who is in exactly the same place as earlier. He’ll send you on the trail to face your sixth and final duel, Kojiro.
Locate the duel entrance at Omi Monastery
Head to Omi Monastery, which is in the north-west of Toyotama. Kojiro’s hideout can be found to the right of the giant Buddha statue, through a gap in the rocks.
Speak with Kojiro
Press to speak with your foe.
Duel on the Mirror of Sacred Light
Time for your sixth and final duel. Kojiro is tougher than your other opponents, striking fast and with unblockable attacks (unless you’ve purchased the Perfect Dodge ability). Patience is key; if you go on the offensive you will be struck down fast. Wait for him to make a move, then dodge or counter as appropriate and whittle his health down, supplemented with your special Resolve abilities. After you strike the final blow, this quest is done.
This finishes The Six Blades of Kojiro quest in Ghost of Tsushima.
