What's a samurai without some cool armor? Ghost of Tsushima has plenty of armor options that you can choose from that can be earned by completing various activities or found throughout the world. We've compiled a list of them, including newer pieces added in Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut, so that you can see what they look like and find out if you're missing any.

If any of the armor or masks seen below look different than yours, it could be because it is an upgraded version of the armor or it has been dyed another color. Certain headbands earned by completing haikus may have a different description depending on which lines you chose.
