[Top 5] Ghost of Tsushima Best Armor

 Ghost of Tsushima Best Armor
The perfect armor for the perfect Samurai

Traversing the harsh and unforgiving terrain of Tsushima Island can be a difficult task for many players. With half of the characters in the game looking to stab and impale you with their weapons and the other half only interested in sending you on Kamikaze quests, the need for protective armor has not been greater. This is especially true since the initial armor you start the 1st Act of the game with offers as much protection as a cardboard box.  Luckily for us though, the developers of the game made available a wide array of incredible Armor sets in the game. Some are just bewitching to look at and also boost your health, stealth, etc. While others were forged simply to strike fear in the hearts of the most valiant of Mongol Warriors. In this article, we are going to be looking at the five best of these incredible Armor sets and where you can find them on the map.

5. Mongol Commander's Armor:

The Mongol Commander's Armor is perfecting for stealth gameplay

The Mongol Commander's armor is a set perfect for those who love going toe to toe with Mongol warriors but also enjoy stealthy playthroughs. This incredible armor, fit for Khotun Khan himself, not only gives you a major increase in health and a reduction to damage dealt to you, but it also serves as a perfect disguise for getting up-close and personal with Mongol  without being detected. The only letdown in relation to this armor is that it can’t be upgraded and by the time you receive it, which is later on in the game, you probably have more useful armor sets in your armory.

What makes Mongol Commander's Armor great:

  • It’s great for disguising yourself and reduces enemy detection
  • The health boost and damage reduction it gives are also great for a combat-oriented playthrough.

Mongol Commander's Armor Details:

  •  It gives you a major Increase in health when equipped. (Massive at Rank II)
  • It also reduces all damage by a Major amount. (Massive at Rank II)
  • Disguises you while out of combat, massively reducing Mongol detection speed.

You will also duel Dogshin and Bartu after their camps have been liberated.



The Kensei Armor turns you into a Ghost Weapon expert

If you’re a fan of Ghost weapons but still like getting into a brawl or two, then the Kensei armor is perfect for you. The increase it gives you in both resolve and ghost weapon use can sometimes seem like an unfair advantage especially if you are the kind that favors a stealthy playthrough. Since I’m more of a ‘guns blazing’ player myself, I didn’t wear it a lot during my playthrough but it felt pretty good having it in my armory. Here are some facts which make this armor set one of the best in the game.
