In our Ghost of Tsushima trophy guide, we broke down all 52 in-game trophies. However, while some are easy to earn, some are a bit tough and require a more detailed explanation. Specifically, the Ghost of Tsushima ‘All in the Wrist’ trophy will require players to defeat five enemies in one Standoff. This can be a bit of a challenging feat so we are here to explain how to do it.
Ghost of Tsushima ‘All in the Wrist’ Trophy Guide
When you first start the game, you’ll only be able to defeat one enemy in a Standoff but to get the All in the Wrist trophy, you’ll need to take out five enemies at a time. Essentially, to get the Ghost of Tsushima All in the Wrist trophy, you’ll need to upgrade your armor and purchase relevant Standoff Steak skills to increase Jin’s limit from one to five.
To start, players need to complete the “Ghosts from the Past” main story quest to get the Sakai clan armor. From there, players must collect different crafting materials and completely upgrade their armor to get +2 to their Standoff streak, meaning Jin can now take down three enemies during a Standoff. However, to get the All in the Wrist trophy in Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll need to bump it up to five.
To do that, players will need to purchase the “Standoff Streak” and “Improved Standoff Streak” with Technique Points. Players will earn these points as they make their way through the game and complete missions and side missions, so be sure to not spend them all at once.
To purchase these skills, open the main menu, and navigate to the “Techniques” tab. You should see a section that says “Evolving Tactics,” which is where you’ll find the two perks you’ll need to unlock. Doing so will allow you to defeat the maximum number of enemies in a Standoff and will finally make it possible to get the Ghost of Tsushima All in the Wrist trophy.
From here, all you need to do is find a group of at least five enemies and engage in a Standoff with them. To start a Standoff, go up to the Mongol’s and press up on the D-Pad to engage them. Then, hold the triangle button as prompted and release it before they attack and defeat them. Take on each enemy as they step up and if you successfully kill five of them, you’ll earn the All in the Wrist trophy in Ghost of Tsushima.
If you’re just getting started with the game, there is a lot to know if you plan on saving your island from the Mongols. If you would like to know more, be sure to check out our website for some guides. Further, in the links below, you’ll find some of our recent coverage.
