The Warrior's Code Walkthrough
Find Yuna south of Kechi fishing village
- Upon completing the prologue, you'll now be able to freely roam the vast land of Tsushima Island. You'll start the first act and you'll be given a couple of missions that you can complete depending on your preference. But it is suggested to complete this mission first in order to unlock the basic techniques you'll need for stealth.
- Open the map and look for the golden marker with Yuna's face on it. The location will be at Kechi Fishing Village, head there to begin the quest, and then speak to her to trigger a cutscene.
Reach an overlook by the Mongol prison camp
- After the cutscene, mount your horse and head to the overlooking spot. The location is marked on the map and you can use Guiding Wind to help you in the right direction.
- At some point, the Guiding Wind will point you to the top of a hill which means you'll need to use the climbing holds on the wall to climb the top. Simply follow the marker to reach the area where you can scout the prison camp.
- At the overlook, the screen will then zoom in towards the camp allowing you to survey the area and interact with points of interest. After checking two points, the third option will be available which is the front wall. Jin comments that it looks like it is under construction and Yuna mentions that there could be a way in - a cutscene will then trigger and you'll infiltrate the camp at night.
Find the gap near the camp’s gate
- After the cutscene, head down to the camp and find the gap near the gate.
- Cross the river and squeeze through the gap - another cutscene will then trigger.
- Here you'll be given the opportunity to execute your first stealth kill. Sneak behind the Mongol Soldier in front of you and assassinate him.
- Another cutscene will trigger once you hit the assassinate button and the game will switch to a flashback scene.
Follow the bear tracks with your uncle
- As a young Jin along with Shimura, the next objective is to follow the bear tracks.
- Examine the bear tracks which will lead to a trail of blood and eventually, you'll find a wounded bear.
- Examine the carcass to trigger another cutscene and to end the flashback.
- Back at the present day, Jin will now have access to the Focused Hearing technique. Press the touchpad of the controller to enter Focus mode to hear the movements of nearby enemies.
- You can assassinate and hear enemy movements now. Take this opportunity to practice your stealthy moves and assassinate the rest of the Mongol guards guarding the vicinity.
- Once you've killed all of the guards, head to the path that leads to a tent at the top of the hill. You'll find a cage behind the tent but the prisoner inside it isn't Taka.
- Make sure to check the small tents to find Resources.
- Inside the big round tent at the top, there's a Mongol soldier. Kill him then pick up the Conversations with the Khan 1 scroll that's on top of the table near the bed.
- There's also a Mongol Artifact here which is the Aaruul.
- Open the cage and speak to the prisoner.
- Exit the camp through the gap and follow the prisoner and Yuna.
Regroup with Yuna outside the camp
- From here, leave the camp and travel with Yuna to the river.
- A cutscene will then trigger and the freed prisoner will tell Yuna and Jin about Taka's whereabouts.
- This will complete this main quest and you'll most likely obtain a technique point to learn a new Technique.
- Up next, The Tale of Sensei Ishikawa.
