Ghost of Tsushima: Legends – Samurai Techniques Guide

This tank stands at the frontlines

by Joshua Garibay


Ghost of Tsushima: Legends may allow an extra three players to join the battle, but that doesn’t make the co-op mode any less challenging than the single player campaign. Ensuring group diversity and proper class skill utilization is key in overcoming the Mongol presence and supernatural entities.

The Samurai is one of four available classes. The Samurai resides on the frontlines, crossing swords face-to-face with the opposition. This class deals heavy damage, but it can also endure punishment from hostile onslaughts to a greater degree than the other characters. If you gravitate towards the tank role, you will feel at home with the Samurai.
