Legend Class

Assassin in Ghost of Tsushima is one of the 4 classes available with Ghost of Tsushima: Legends DLC. Classes can be unlocked after you play the game a little bit. The first class you can unlock is only when your player level reaches Rank 8. This is where you can select the first Class of your choice and equip.


Assassins are shadows in the night. They abandoned the Samuria code for the art of stealth and deception.


Assassin Information

If you prefer doing massive damage with a single attack, you’ll love the Assassin. The Shadow Strike ultimate attack will allow you to teleport across the battlefield and directly strike your enemies.

While all classes can sneak up and dispatch enemies, the Assassin thrives here. The name of the game is big single target damage that can be dished out without being seen. The Assassin isn’t a complete lone wolf, however. The class can be built to accommodate better team synergy, as well as multi-target elimination.
