PlayStation 4 dropped its major exclusive release Ghost of Tsushima on July 17. The open-world samurai adventure has a wealth of armor and outfits to unlock. Here is how you can find the hidden white and black dye to customize your look.

Ghost of Tsushima made its debut on the PS4 in July. The latest release from Sucker Punch Productions is a samurai epic that takes place in the year 1274. Players take on the role of warrior Jin Sakai who must push back the invasion from the Mongols.

The open-world adventure features a great deal of customization, as armor and outfits can be discovered on the island. The title also lets you modify your clothing with a variety of colors. Here is our guide on how to find the rare white and black dye.

How to get black & white dye in Ghost of Tsushima

After a couple hours into the game, players will quickly start to notice that merchants offer a variety of dye colors that change the way your armor looks. Unfortunately, if you want your attire to be black or white, you have to find hidden sellers that specifically have the two shades.

Those that are interested in the white dye are in luck as you can actually find the merchant in the opening section of the game. The black dye can only be accessed once you reach the second act. Both can only be bought with flowers, so you will need to collect them around the map.

The white dye merchant is in the North West section of Izuhara, and is specifically located in the mountains directly left of Wanderer’s Pass. The easiest way to find it is to go to the  Wanderer’s text on the map, then head left until you see the the hills. Once you finally climb to the top, you will find the seller.

The seller is only accessible in the Toyotama region. However, once you’ve unlocked this part of the story, it’s fairly easy to find. They are located in the southeast region – just look for Kawamata Village, and head right of the text on the map.

Unlike the first NPC, they are actually semi-hidden. Look for a cluster of bamboo trees, and a big rock next to the plants. The seller is nestled under the rock. The color should cost five flowers for weapons, and 10 for armor and clothing.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, PS4 and Xbox players will finally be able to try out Field of View sliders in CoD while all players should get to experiment with the game’s first Ping system in multiplayer.

In an effort to make Black Ops Cold War as historic a CoD title as ever, Treyarch and Raven Software are adding a Ping system, akin to Warzone’s, in multiplayer and testing console limitations by introducing an FOV slider across all platforms.

This marks a departure from Modern Warfare 2019, in which FOV control was limited to PC and pings were limited to Warzone.

Historically, controlling FOV has been limited to PC games as consoles have struggled with maintaining their frames-per-second (FPS) at larger in-game views. Call of Duty has typically run at 60 FPS, so consoles have been limited to the highest FOV possible to maintain that rate.

Now, starting with the Open Beta, Black Ops Cold War will allow console players to choose from the spectrum of FOV, joining the PC fanbase in finding their preferred visibility from 60 to 120. Treyarch have already warned that PS4 and Xbox users may experience framerate issues (likely unideal stuttering or tearing) at higher FOV, so players will need to be conscious of that when choosing their preferred level of visibility.

One has to assume that BOCW is optimized enough to handle larger perspectives than usual on console, but this is overall a nod to the game’s future as a globally competitive cross-play title. It will also be interesting to monitor how much larger aspect ratios can go on the PS5 and Xbox Series X without encountering framerate drops.

Multiplayer Ping system

Following Apex Legends’ lead, Warzone deployed an expansive pinging system that allowed players to point out everything from enemies to locations and even warnings that enemies had gone through locations. While that mechanic has been a blessing to communication and teamwork in the battle royale, players were left solely dependent on their microphones for callouts in multiplayer.

That’s changing in BOCW, as Treyarch have explained that MP competitors will now be able to “ping objectives, loot, locations, and enemies for your teammates during a match.” Like Warzone, players will be able to choose different button layouts to ping with their preferred mappings.

Overall, these changes should be welcome ones. While it’s unclear how FOV will perform for console players at the highest levels across different systems, adding that control and the ability to ping in multiplayer makes for a game that is thorough and consistent throughout every platform.
