Ghost of Tsushima All Pillars of Honour Locations Guide
Each time you find a Pillar of Honour in Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll have to collect the Sword Kit from it. Usually, the locations of the Pillars of Honour can be found through exploration; however, you will be able to find them faster if you use maps.
Throughout the following Ghost of Tsushima Pillars of Honour locations guide, I will share with you the positions of all Pillars of Honour 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 23 Pillars of Honour in the video game and you’ll need to find at least 1 in order to unlock the Lost and Found Trophy. These are similar to the Haiku which unlock new Headbands.
- Type: Collectibles/Hidden Locations
- Usage: Character Customization; Unlocking Lost and Found Trophy; Count as Vanity Gear
- Total Number: 23
“These pillars were erected all over the island by Tsushima’s first jito. They honor the samurai who gave their lives to bring peace and order to Tsushima.”
How To Find & Use
To find these Ghost of Tsushima collectibles you have several options. The first one is through exploration and it requires your attention to the environment.
Yellow birds usually guide you to them.
Alternatively, you can use the maps below and visit the marked locations without looking for them. The second method is faster.
Finally, you can reveal them by liberating all Occupied Mongol Territories. Simply check my video guide below to see all these territories.
One thing you need to remember here is that after you clear the Mongol presence on Tsushima, all locations appear on your map as question marks; and it is quite hard to know which location is a Pillar of Honor.
Therefore, use the locations guide below to find these landmarks.
Once you find one of these pillars, place Jin in front of it and press R2 to pick up the Sword Kit.
If you wish to see how many collectibles 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 Pillars of Honour window. In the upper left corner, you can see the total amount of pillars in the game and the number of collectibles you have located.
Last but not least, all 23 Pillars of Honor unlock Sword Kits which count as Vanity Gear, so finding all of them is mandatory.
