Ghost of Tsushima: Legends – Fortress Samurai Force Jump Guide

How to Perform Fortress Samurai Force Jump

Perfecting the impaled samurai force jump at the end of the Fortress Gates: Trials Of Iyo edition.

  • Step/Jump into the katana circle.
  • Make sure one of your legs is highly elevated within the side of the rock.
    • Your character should have the Captain Morgan-style pose and not have their leg only slightly elevated.
    • Use a smoke bomb or vanish to keep your character from focusing on the enemies behind them or the rest will be far more difficult.
  • Jump while moving your movement stick to the 10 o’clock position, then quickly moving your movement stick to the 2 o’clock position.
    • Timing the position switch of the movement stick during the jump is key.
    • Alternating the stick position should be quick, but not too fast.

If done correctly, your character should catch the left side of the ledge above.

Alternatively, you can catch the right side of the ledge as well. The difference being that you position your character directly next to the impaled samurai and perform the same sequence.

You may also try swapping the order of the stick moves. Some have had more success with one version over the other.

You can also reach the ledge at a running pace and jumping at just the right time and glancing off the back of the helmet of the dead samurai. Yes, I do have supporting video evidence to showcase/prove this method and can be provided upon request. However, this jump is significantly more difficult to pull off. Certainly with any element of consistency.

I prefer to look up in the direction of the jump which does help with other jumps, but I have heard reports that this may not be a requirement for this one.

Note: This isn’t the best video for showcasing how to perform the jump, but should provide some context on the topic.
