Bamboo Strikes - Overview & Tips
Test Your Sword Technique In A Mini Game
As you venture the land of Tsushima, you will occasionally find batches of roped bamboos, used to practice swords. You may also take a swing at this with a simple mini game, push the button prompt on the bamboo to successfully cut through them in a swing!
Timing & Order Is Important
Getting the proper button sequence right and fast is the key in this minigame. The difficult part is that the button prompts disappear once you press the first button. Try to practice by inputting the buttons as fast as you can.
3 Sequences Per Bamboo Strike
All Bamboo Strike locations in the map present 3 patterns for the player to try. Note that you can take them as many times as you want as there is no limit to how many tries you take.
