As a player, you can choose to scoff at the whispers of this legendary armor, much like the doubting farmers, or fully immerse yourself in the fantasy by acquiring the ultimate gear in Ghost of Tsushima. While the finest treasures in Sucker Punch‘s RPG come without a price tag, they certainly demand dedication. In this guide, I’ll show you how to get the Unbreakable Gosaku in Ghost of Tsushima.

Join Yamato in Akashima village to hear more about the Gosaku Armor in Ghost of Tsushima. You get a side quest objective saying, “Find music in Akashima,” which points to Yamato’s instrument. You can find him sitting by the fire in the center of the village.

How to complete The Unbreakable Gosaku in Ghost of Tsushima

After you hear the tale of the farmer-turned-samurai, you must obtain the six keys from the six farmsteads to access the hidden Gosaku Armor in Ghost of Tsushima. So, get on your horse and pay them all a visit. Here’s every key location and how you can find it:

How to free all six farmsteads

To get the keys, you must free the Ijima, Yagata, Koshimizu, Kuta, Ohama, and Aoi Farmsteads. Some are more crowded than others, but the goal is to rescue all hostages marked with a yellow icon above their hands while defeating the Mongol invaders. If you’re having trouble taking care of the enemies, try visiting some Hot Springs to increase your health.

The easiest key to get is the Key of Ijima, which is unsurprisingly located on Ijima Farmstead. Rescue the hostages by assassinating the enemies. Once all four hostages are freed, the last one grants you one of the keys to unlock the Gosaku Armor.

To get this key to unlock the Gosaku Armor in Ghost of Tsushima, kill the Mongol guards in the garden and rescue three hostages. After your heroic deeds, you get the Key of Koshimizu. You’re halfway through completing The Unbreakable Gosaku now.

To get the Key of Kuta, you must kill five enemies in a row without taking damage and rescue three hostages. It’s better if you take a stealthy approach to this one. As long as you avoid detection, you can’t take damage. Once that’s out of the way, you’ve rewarded the key.

Once you’ve got all six keys, travel to the hill in Akashima in Ghost of Tsushima. Follow these steps to get the armor:

  1. Follow the yellow marker to the sealed stone door. Use the keys to open it.
  2. Grapple onto the broken tree on the mountain to reach the top.
  3. Then, grab onto the ledges on the right to reach the platform on the far right. 
  4. Climb the stairs and grapple onto the tree branch ahead.
  5. Use the fallen tree log to reach the next area. If you fall, you can grab onto the ledges below.
  6. When you reach the top, there’s a treasure chest you can collect to get the Gosaku Armor in Ghost of Tsushima.
