Sometimes you need a big distraction and the tinkle of wind chime just isn’t enough. Here’s everything you need to know about how to get firecrackers and what they do in Ghost of Tsushima.
As alluded to above, before you can even start to think about using Firecrackers, you’ll need to get the Wind Chime first. This can be done when you complete a story mission; during the early part of the game, you’ll get the opportunity to unlock one of five Ghost Weapons after one has been completed. The Wind Chime is the one you should go with if you’re looking to get firecrackers.
Once you have the Wind Chime, then you can upgrade it to Firecrackers using one technique point.
