Ghost of Tsushima made its debut on July 17 on the PlayStation 4. The open-world samurai game lets you upgrade your weapons with crafting materials found across the island. Here’s our guide on how to easily obtain steel, and in unlimited quantities.

Sucker Punch Productions’ latest creation has players taking on the role of samurai Jin Sakai, who must defeat the Mongols after they have invaded his land. The open-world title takes place on the Island of Tsushima in the year 1274.

While the game offers up a variety of combat options, fans will no doubt be interested in upgrading their weapons sooner rather than later. Luckily, there is way to get an unlimited amount of steel, and we will show you how.

Unlimited steel in Ghost of Tsushima

After the opening section of the game, players are let loose into the world of Tsushima. The map is filled with side quests, missions, and a variety of crafting items such as wood and steel. However, there is already an easy way to obtain these goods in unlimited amounts.

While it’s unclear if this is a glitch or an oversight, currently items respawn after restarting at the last checkpoint. Even better yet, if you die, you get to keep the crafting material that you already picked up before resetting your point in the game.

YouTuber ‘WCW’ uploaded his take on the trick, telling players to go to the Salt Wind Estate located on the southern half of the map. Rushing into the building, you can quickly grab the steel from the chest and then let the Mongols kill you. After reloading at the checkpoint, you will still have the material in your inventory.

The chest in the building will also have re-spawned with the item back inside it, which means you can keep running in and taking the steel as many times as you want. The trick actually works in other locations as well. So for instance, once you clear the Travelers Rest Inn, you can actually re-spawn to the checkpoint over and over after taking the material from the chest.

It should be stated that it’s uncertain if the developer intended for items to respawn after reloading a checkpoint. So we recommend farming now as much as you can in case it ends up getting patched out later.

Ghost of Tsushima is Sucker Punch Productions’ first major project since Infamous Second Son which made its debut in 2014 on the PlayStation 4. The samurai epic was met with overwhelming praise from critics upon its release.

The release of the next title in Ubisoft’s storied Assassin’s Creed franchise is nearly upon us. So, let’s run though some different tidbits you need to know about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with our weapons and combat guide.

Ubisoft are remaining steadfast in their approach to refresh Assassin’s Creed, by maintaining the more action-orientated approach seen in Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Valhalla offers another vast, open-world – this time full of fearsome Vikings – and it’s only fitting that Eivor is kitted out with the most appropriate implements the 9th century has to offer.

In addition to this, the game also has some combat changes, in particular the Mortal Kombat-esque X-ray kills and features the biggest variety of enemies an Assassin’s Creed game has ever seen. Valhalla is sure to be a place that you will need some foresight to gain the advantage going in.

So these are all the confirmed weapons and combat changes for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that we know of so far.

Weapons

Now, it’s usual to expect weapon changes as we move from game to game. Some are short range and other will be useful from a slightly greater distance, such as the spear.

The list of those we know about already can be seen below, based on footage released so far from developers:

  • Melee
  • Axe
  • Bow
  • Spear
  • Sword
  • Shield
  • Hidden Blade

The Hidden Blade has been overhauled in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, with the blade now appearing on top of Eivor’s wrist, as opposed to the blade living up to its moniker and being tucked away underneath. This is a deliberate design choice to compliment Eivor’s character, devs have confirmed.

The different ways in which you can experience combat in Assassin’s Creed has increased with Valhalla.

Weapons are not the only thing to have been shaken up for the November release, however. This will be the first Assassin’s Creed game on next-gen consoles, so with that comes a boat load of combat features we never saw last time out.

These include the following:

  • New, violent X-ray kills
  • Enemies can now be dismembered
  • Enemies can co-ordinate attacks against you
  • Fallen enemies can be used as a weapon against you
  • Gear can be constantly modified throughout the game
  • Animal companions that can help you such as bears
