Looking for a Ghost of Tsushima Bamboo farming method?
In fact, in this guide, I am going to show you how to get Bamboo in six clicks or button pushes on your PlayStation 4.
How To Get The Charm Of Inari In Ghost of Tsushima
Just like I mentioned in yesterday’s video guide (you can watch it here if you missed it), the first thing you need to do in order to fully benefit from this fast farming method is to get the Charm of Inari.
It can be obtained from a Shinto Shrine named the Arrow Peak Shrine.
It is located in the first region, named Izuhara, and you can get it the moment you enter free roam.
Start by talking to the NPC; then, you will need to go all the way up and pray to the shrine.
Once you get on top of the mountain and you pray at the said shrine, you will get the Charm Of Inari, which increases the number of Predator Hides, Supplies, Bamboo, and Yew Wood gained from collecting.
Make sure you equip this charm in one of your sword’s slots.
Infinite Bamboo Farming Spot
Next, you will want to travel to the Seaside Hotspring in Izuhara.
This is located in the southernmost part of the first region.
As you can see, you can also start A Healer’s Touch Side Tale here.
When you get to the Hotspring, look around for this small hill nearby.
This is our Bamboo farming spot.
How To Get Infinite Bamboo
Our goal is to restart from the last checkpoint. You can do this from the game’s menu.
This is done in 6 button pushes. When you do that, you will be back to the hill above.
Get the Bamboo from the tree nearby and restart the last checkpoint again. And keep doing this until you get enough Bamboo.
Now, because I am pretty sure you understand how this works, let me tell you why I have picked this spot.
First, what I wanted from my farming spot was to be located in the first area, known as Izuhara, because I wanted it to work early in the game as well.
Second, I was looking for a Bamboo farming spot that required as little movement as possible.
Third, I was looking for a spot to farm Bamboo in Ghost of Tsushima, where the Charm of Inari works. And this is the spot I was able to find.
How The Bamboo Farming Exploit Works
On the hill in the image above, there are several spots where Bamboo trees grow.
You can find a Bamboo tree in the middle of the hill. You can also find one close to a bigger tree. Or close to a smaller tree.
Sometimes a Yew Tree can also be found near the Hotspring. Or in the small forest nearby.
And finally, sometimes, nothing grows after you reload the checkpoint. But what I want to point out is that this rarely happens.
If it does, all you need to do is to hit the reload last checkpoint button.
Now, by standing on this hill, you will be able to spot all spawning locations in a matter of seconds. That’s why this location is one of the best.
The fact that you can get some Yew Wood as well is just a bonus.
Anyway, how does this Ghost of Tsushima glitch or exploit work? Well, it’s actually pretty simple.
The game saves automatically every time you gather a resource, which means that after you get it, by reloading the last save, you will get back to that location, but the resource can respawn in another spot nearby.
So basically, what I was looking for was a location where Bamboo trees always respawn.
Now, some of you guys will say….oh…but I saw a better method on another channel. Yes, I am talking about the Arrow Peak Shrine over here.
And about that method where you farm this specific Bamboo tree that constantly respawns.
The problem with that method though is that the Charm of Inari doesn’t work on this specific tree.
Which makes this farming method the worst.
The same YouTuber claims that once you get the Bamboo, you should perform a crazy stunt and kill yourself by jumping down.
This is not only slower but also useless because besides the fact that you waste time, you also can’t farm a lot of Bamboo because, you see..the charm of inari doesn’t work.
This brings us back to our hill, where you have better chances to farm Bamboo in Ghost of Tsushima, especially early in the game.
One last thing I want to point out is that if you reload the last checkpoint at this location and you don’t see any tree nearby, immediately reload the checkpoint again to save time.
And always return to the hill.
The respawn rate is really high here, and I am talking about a rate of over 90%. Pretty cool, right?
So, let me know your thoughts and questions in the comments below, and obviously, if you have found a better location to farm Bamboo in Ghost of Tsushima.
