Sucker Punch’s latest Ghost of Tsushima edition has just the right dose of tricks and improvements to make it an almost perfect experience. All in all, Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut offers 77 trophies: 59 Bronze, 13 Silver, 4 Gold, and 1 Platinum. Take note that the developers linked most of these collectibles to the main quest of the game, so you can’t miss them. Some trophies may seem difficult. However, don’t worry, as I added some detailed descriptions with some of them. Here is my complete Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut trophies guide!
- Flash of Steel: To achieve the trophy of defeating 20 enemies with a counterattack after a Perfect Parry, it is required to kill the enemies with the counterattack instead of just injuring them. The Perfect Block skill enables the player to perform a parry by pressing the L1 button, followed by Square or Triangle to kill the enemy. It is advisable to hurt the enemies beforehand to ensure the successful execution of the counterattack. The Katana is a sword that has been used by Japanese samurai and is recognized for its curved blade and symbolic importance in Japanese culture. Many anime characters prefer the Katana for its sharpness and power, making it a popular choice. The Katana by Mini Katana is designed to be fast and lethal, providing a better chance of success in battles.
- All in the Wrist: Defeat the maximum amount of enemies within a single Standoff.
- Open for Business: Successfully Stagger enemies 50 times. The moment an enemy is about to run out of their health bar, they will start to stagger. The best way to achieve this is to use the correct form for each type of opponent: Stone = Swordsmen; Water = Shieldsmen; Wind = Spearsmen; Moon = Brutes. The fastest way to get this trophy is to hold Triangle in the form of water, so as to activate a series of shots that can easily stun the enemy.
- There Can Be Only One: Successfully complete every duel. In Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut, there will be 25 duels in which you will have to compete, between the missions of the main story and the secondary ones.
- Haunting Precision: Kill 20 enemies with Ghost Stance strikes. The Ghost Form will be obtainable during Act 2 of the game storyline. As soon as you get it, you’ll need to activate it, and there are two ways to do this: kill an opposing leader in stealth or kill 7 enemies without getting hit. If the second option may seem challenging, know that it is not at all. Upgrade your Katana to the maximum, until you can kill an opponent with 1 or 2 hits. Go to the enemy camps and kill the largest number of enemies by staying hidden or with your arrows. In case you get caught, escape to another camp. By doing so, you will load up the Ghost Form bar, and you can activate it by pressing L3 + R3. Warning: you will not be able to kill the 20 enemies required for the trophy with a single use of the Ghost Form. You will be able to kill a maximum of 3 per use. You will have to activate this form at least seven times.
- The Ghost of Legend: Build your Legend to earn the title Ghost of Tsushima. You will get this trophy by dedicating yourself to the main missions, to the secondary ones, and freeing the territories from the Mongols. Devote yourself to getting other trophies, and you will get this too without even realizing it.
- Quick Study: Learn the Stone, Water, Wind, and Moon combat stances. You will achieve these forms of combat by defeating various opposing leaders, who will have better defense and armor than common enemies. Also, in this case, dedicate yourself to getting the other trophies. You will also unlock this in no time at all.
- Every Trick in the Book: Acquire all the throwable Ghost Weapon techniques. To get this trophy, you will need to unlock six techniques concerning the spectral throwing weapons, in the skill tree of the Ghost: Kunai, Black powder bomb, Smoke bomb, Sticky Bomb, Wind chime, and Firecracker. Fortunately, you don’t require the other weapons to get this trophy. You will get these weapons simply by increasing your Legend level, defeating enemies, and continuing the game story. Also, in this case, therefore, the advice is to face other trophies in the game, unlocking everything necessary for this achievement as well. The only weapon that will be unlockable differently is the Firecracker, which can be obtained by spending one skill point.
- The Perfect Storm: Fully upgrade your sword. The katana is the only sword that you will have in Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut. You will have to upgrade it to the maximum to get the trophy in question. To achieve this, it is necessary to find different materials, avoiding wasting them. These materials are Provisions, Iron, Steel, and Gold. Many of these materials will also be obtained by completing some main and secondary missions, which is why you won’t have to fear any wild farming.
- A Charming Man: Equip a charm in all 6 slots. First, to get the 6 slots, you will need to have completed all Inari Shrines. At this point, you will only have to get the 6 amulets to equip. They are obtainable at the sanctuaries and from some secondary quests.
- Gifted: Collect 10 gifts. You can collect these items at the Altars of the Gift. The first one is located right at the Golden Temple, in the first region you will explore. During the game plot, many more gifts will unlock. Collect 10 and the trophy will be yours.
- Slay: Acquire 30 pieces of Vanity Gear. The fastest way to get this trophy is to devote yourself to haiku and pillars of honor. Each of them will give you a decoration, and you can also purchase a skill that can help you locate the others on the game map.

You will unlock this during the second act (spending two skill points). As soon as your enemy escapes, all you have to do is hit him from behind with an arrow. It will not be necessary to kill him, just hitting him will suffice.

For the small outposts, you will have to limit yourself to killing the occupants. In the case of the fortresses, however, you will have to retrieve banners, kill enemies, and detonate some powder kegs. It will mark every single point of interest on the map.
