Ghost of Tsushima Full map - where to find every sword kit, vanity item and secret hat easter egg

Who would've thought a samurai needed so many hats?

With the release of Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut on PS5, there's never been a better excuse to fully explore its huge open world.

But with the fog of war clouding Tsushima, it can be tempting to traipse around every nook and cranny to fill in the blanks and complete the map. We've done the hard graft for you and tracked down each and every vanity item to be had in the game - including the secret hats which aren't marked on the map. And we've also updated this page to include images of every single sword kit in the game - as well as their locations.

If you're having trouble tracking things down, remember, once you've finished the game and ejected the last of the Mongol invaders, you'll get unrestricted access to Ghost of Tsushima's full map. Finally, those sword kits, fancy hats and masks will be yours!

Some of these more special items you can find include easter eggs harking back to Sucker Punch Productions' earlier games including the Sly Cooper series and Infamous: Second Son. Namely, the Sly Tankui Sword Kit and Band of the Second Son headband, which you can track down in act 2 and 3.

We've marked the regular vanity items in yellow on the map segments - split into acts to avoid unnecessary spoilers - and the secret hats, headbands, and masks in blue. We'll also list their locations below.

Despite being early in the game, there are plenty of cool vanity items to find.

Ghost of Tsushima Full Map - Act 2 Vanity Items:

In the second area of Ghost of Tsushima, you can find one of your first easter eggs - the Band of the Second Son - on top of the pagoda at Omi Monastery.

With the entire island open to you, it's time to mop up the rest of the kits, hats, and masks - including the Sly Tanuki on the east coast.
