The Traitor Walkthrough

Find the Monk

  • This side quest becomes available after completing The Husband. It is one of the shortest quests you can complete.
  • Open your Journal in the menu and track the tale to mark the location of the first objective.
  • Travel to the Ariake Refugee Camp which is on the north-eastern side of the map. Look for a monk named Jushin who is expecting you, speak to him to start this quest.
  • Masako will then catch up with you at the refugee camp.

Travel to the Ariake Lighthouse

  • After speaking to the monk and Masako, ride to the Ariake Lighthouse which is near the camp.
  • Once you arrive, Masako loses her composure and threatens Sadao and the rest of the Mongol guards camping by the lighthouse.
  • There's no reason for you to use stealth here, so you'll have to fight the enemies head-on. Challenge them to a standoff first to at least gain Resolve from successfully winning the standoff.
  • There will be a lot of archers here and spearsmen, while some are shieldsmen.
  • The archers are positioned on high-ground, so ready your bow and shoot them on the head for an instant kill.
  • Remember to switch to Water Stance if you are fighting against shieldsmen. Kill all the enemies then head inside the lighthouse.

Join Masako at the Top of the Lighthouse

  • Climb to the top of the lighthouse and by the time you reach the top, Masako kills Sadao.
  • A cutscene will then trigger and you'll complete part 4 of Masako's side questline.
