Ghost of Tsushima Lighthouses are collectibles and hidden landmarks that must be discovered while exploring the Island of Tsushima in the latest video game developed by Sucker Punch.
The Ghost of Tsushima Lighthouses, are very important because they improve Jin’s notoriety with the locals.
Or simply put they increase Jin’s level, which at the end of the day allows you to unlock new Technique Points.
Each time you find a Lighthouse in Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll have to reignite it.
Usually, the locations of these lighthouses are overrun by Mongols which means that they are similar to the Occupied Areas.
Throughout the following Ghost of Tsushima Lighthouses locations guide, I will share with you the positions of all Lighthouses in the video game.
The guide includes detailed maps that will point you in the right direction, as well as hints and tips on where to find these collectibles in Ghost of Tsushima.
Keep in mind that there are 8 Lighthouses in the video game and you’ll need to find all of them in order to unlock the Light the Way Trophy.
As usual, let’s start the guide by answering several FAQs.
A Lighthouse is a hidden location and a landmark you’ll need to find while exploring the world.
It counts as a collectible and it is a tall building you’ll need to climb.
Ghost of Tsushima features 8 hidden Lighthouses.
Once you find one of these buildings, first you’ll need to get rid of all enemies.
Then you’ll need to find the actual lighthouse building and use the ladder inside to go up.
Finally, place Jin in front of the burning brazier and press R2 on your controller to ignite the lighthouse fire.
To find these Ghost of Tsushima collectibles you have three options.
The first one is through exploration and it requires your attention to the environment.
Alternatively, you can use the maps below and visit these locations conquered by the Mongols without wasting time.
The third is to beat the game and then clear all Mongol Territories.
Once you do that, most of the locations will appear on your map marked by question marks. By visiting them you will see what each location is hiding.
Along with increasing Jin’s notoriety and level, you’ll also unlock the Light the Way Trophy.
If you wish to see how many Lighthouses you have found (track your progress), open the game’s menu, and press L1/R1 to access the Collections tab.
Next, go to the Exploration sub-tab and look for the Lighthouses window.
In the upper left corner, you can see the total number of Lighthouses in the game and the number of fires you have ignited.
Last but not least, there are two Lighthouses that are unlocked by playing the game’s missions.
