“Crickets are a symbol of autumn and an inspiration for many poems and lyrical works. Prized for their singing, they are often caught and kept in small cages. They can be found everywhere in nature, though some say it’s best to look in cemeteries, where they sing to comfort the dead.”
How To Find The Hidden Crickets
To find these Ghost of Tsushima collectibles you have two options. The first one is through exploration and using the guiding wind.
Alternatively, you can use the maps below and visit the marked locations without looking for them. The second method is faster.
The Singing Crickets collectibles can be found during the story or after you finish Jin’s tale. You don’t need to find all of them for the Platinum Trophy, but only 5. This guide reveals all of them though.
Assuming you want to find all of them by yourself the first thing you need is the Traveller’s Attire.
This can be obtained in the first region (Izuhara) by talking to the merchant in the Survivor Camp, north-west of Hyioshi Springs. After you get the armor, you’ll have to find at least one Singing Cricket to unlock them in the game.
Use the guide below to find it faster.
The moment you unlock the entry in your Artifacts tab open the game’s map and press Right on your D-Pad to select the Guiding Wind Target. Then select the Undiscovered Singing Crickets option at the bottom.
On your map, you will see a line that will lead you to the next Singing Cricket; and if you slide your finger up on the TouchPad while exploring the world, the Guiding Wind will show you the way.
Or you can simply use the locations guide below to find them.
Keep in mind that these Ghost of Tsushima collectibles are found in cemeteries and you’ll have to clear all Mongols waiting for you.
