Assassin's Creed Odyssey Cultists Guide: How and where to find more Cultists

Update: We've added locations for every Cultist in the game now, so you can sweep up everyone you have left to find. After yet more betrayal, a new and mysterious foe emerges for the Misthios.

On the trail of the Cult of Kosmos, you get access to a whole new tab in your menu: Cultists. From here, you can track your targets as you gather the info needed to unmask their true identity. This isn’t always straightforward to do, so here are some tips on how and where to find more Cultists in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Cultist Guide

To unmask Cultists, you first need to find clues to their identity. To get hints on where you need to go, enter the Cultist menu and hover over an undiscovered enemy - this should give you a push in the right direction.

If it says to “continue your odyssey”, then you’ll have to progress further in the game to find them. If it says “help people nearby”, then you’ll need to complete a side quest in the vicinity of the clue to unmask the Cultist. Otherwise, you can just head to the location listed.

Once you’ve unmasked a Cultist, you’ll be able to track them on the map - which should make them quite easy to find.

Some Cultists can be assassinated easily. Others are very strong warriors, so be careful and go in prepared.

On their death, each Cultist will drop part of a Legendary armor set. These are some of the best armor sets that you can get in all of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

When you’ve taken out all five Cultists in a branch, you’ll be able to hunt their Sage. Once the Sage is done for, you’ll get the weapon that goes with the armor set. Just like the armor, these weapons are some of the best in the game.

Don’t worry too much about the legendary armor pieces you collect lagging behind in level either, once you defeat a Sage, all of their armor set will scale to their level.
