Unlike other collectibles on this mountain; however, this one comes with a little challenge you’ll have to complete, otherwise, the chest won’t open.
So below we’ll discuss the Kena Bridge of Spirits Rusu Mountain Cursed Chest collectible, where to find it, how to complete the challenge, and obviously what’s inside the chest.
Before we start though remember that on Rusu Mountain, along with the Cursed Chest, you’ll also need to find other collectibles.
Here is the complete list so you can track their locations:
Rusu Mountain Cursed Chest Location
The Cursed Chest on Rusu Mountain is found at the location marked on my map below which is an area where you’ll find a broken wooden bridge.
This bridge is found while following the story, as you head towards Rusu’s House.
To cross the wooden bridge on Rusu Mountain you’ll need to use Kena’s Rot to pull the bridge, but before doing that you can actually find the Cursed Chest.
What you need to know though is that because of the challenge that requires you to kill some enemies without being hit, this chest is best approached after you get the Bow.
So find Rusu to get the Bow, then retrace your steps back to the broken bridge, and while facing it, turn right to spot the painted ledges in my screenshot.
As you climb these ledges, you’ll find a clearing and on the other side the Cursed Chest.
Kena Bridge Of Spirits Rusu Mountain Cursed Chest Challenge - How To Complete
When you open the chest you’ll automatically trigger a challenge and 4 enemies will spawn.
To finish this challenge you’ll need to defeat all enemies without being hit.
And this is where your Bow plays an important role because if you unlock it before this challenge you can shoot all enemies from distance.
Simply move around when they get close and keep firing your arrows.
Obviously, you can also complete this challenge using Kena’s Staff, but her Bow is the recommended weapon for this chest.
Also, you may want to use charged arrows for extra damage and always aim for the head.
Once you defeat all enemies, approach the chest and open it to find the Bird’s Nest Rot Hat which is one of the 6 Rusu Mountain Rot Hats you can collect in this area.
For the rest of them, refer to this guide.
This is the Kena Bridge of Spirits Rusu Mountain Cursed Chest collectible you’ll need to find if you aim for the Platinum Trophy, but in Forgotten Forest you’ll need to find two as explained here.
