How to get the ‘Sly Cooper’ costume in ‘Ghost of Tsushima’


Ghost of Tsushima is a game that has plenty of unlockables that players can collect. One of those is an armor set that pays tribute to one of the company’s most iconic characters, Sly Cooper.

Unlocking the Sly Cooper costume does not only give the Samurai protagonist a unique look, it also unlocks trophy for reward. Making the idea of completing a set more rewarding is the fact that it’s one of the toughest trophies in-game.

To complete the set, the player must find Gosaku’s Armor, Sly Tanuki’s Sword Kit, and the Crooked Kama Headband. In addition, the player must also dye the armor to complete the overall theme.

Gosaku’s Armor

The quest to unlock the Gosaku’s Armor becomes accessible to players early into the game, particularly in Act 2. However, getting this legendary is no simple feat. As a quest, its overall theme revolves around getting keys across enemy-occupied territories.

There is a total of six keys that need gathering as splattered between two major locations: Izuhara and Toyotama.

Four are found in Izuhara, which includes Yagata Farmstead, Kuta Farmstead, Aoi Village, and Ohama Fishing Village. The remaining two are found in Toyotama, which includes Koshimizu Farmstead and Iijima Farmstead.

Having all six keys, the next destination is the Old Togo Rice Fields in Akashima. Nearby the rice fields is a mountain that holds the armor on top.

Sly Tanuki Sword Kit

To come across the feathered Sly Tanuki Sword Kit, the player must first reach Act 3 of the game. It is somewhere in the Pillar of Honor. More specifically, east of Trapper’s House and northeast of Iwai village.

Getting across the sword kit would require some climbing on cliffs and rocks. But you will know when you are in the right place when you reach a snowy lookout that oversees the ocean.

Crooked Kama Headband

Similar to getting the previous item, getting the Crooked Kama Headband requires the player being in Act 3. To get the headband, the player must first visit Jogaku Temple where the item is at a certain elevation.

One of the pagodas in the area has the vanity gear on top of it, which demands the player to do some climbing using hooks. Reaching the apex, the player will subsequently find the Crooked Hama Headband dangling from an arrow.

Ocean’s Guardian Armor Dye

To complete the aesthetics, player must first unlock the Ocean’s Guardian armor dye by buying it from a merchant. This will the Gosaku’s Armor a blend of yellow and blue colors.

Optional: Thief Mask

This particular equipment is not necessarily a part of the set. But wearing the Thief Mask adds to the overall getup which is essentially a homage to a legendary thief in the gaming universe. To get the Thief Mask, simply advance through the story and constantly checking the gift altar.
