This portion of the Ghost of Tsushima guide explains how to observe leaders. Doing this gives you a point towards unlocking a new stance so you’ll want to do this before killing the leader (which also gives you a stance point). This effectively doubles the reward of killing a leader!
Important note: You can only observe leaders in camps when there’s an explicit objective to do so. This objective is listed in the upper left of your HUD.
How to Observe Leaders
- Approach the Mongol-controlled area slowly and carefully. Remain undetected.Consider using your Ghost Armor which reduces enemy detection speed.
- Scout from above, it’s one of the most secure ways to investigate. Jump from roof to roof. You can also be on the ground but be sure to stay hidden.
- Here’s what the leader looks like: He is usually practicing somewhere in the camp. He’s always clad in gold or silver armor, and usually sporting a sword and shield, or two swords. Note that the leader also makes loud sword sounds and shouts you can hear from outside the camp.
- When you get close enough, you will be prompted to observe the leader by pressing R2.
