Search for Umugi Cove – Walk with Goro

Follow Lord Shimura to Fort Mitodake – Attack Fort Mitodake with Lord Shimura

1 Go with Lord Shimura to Fort Mitodake. Ambush and defeat the Mongol moving towards you. Stay alert as reinforcements will arrive from the fort to your location.
2 Push on to the fort’s gate while taking out more Mongol enemies. Open the gate with Lord Shimura afterwards.
3 Upon entering the fort, take cover behind the barrels as archers will immediately fire flaming arrows at you.
4 Make your way to the second floor of the building while defeating enemies along the way. Go further after exiting the building for a cutscene.
5 Quickly move forward along the path again to avoid the rain of arrows from the hwacha. The white circle on the ground indicates where the projectiles will land so be sure to get out of it quickly.

Fight to the Hwacha tower with Lord Shimura – Defend Goro’s ship

1 Follow the path to the hwacha tower. More Mongol forces will be blocking the path leading up to the hill where the tower is.
2 Shoot the two archers on the tower before heading up. After the cutscene, use the Hwacha to destroy the Mongol ships pursuing Goro. Do not let any of the ships reach Goro as the mission will automatically fail. Afterwards, focus on the archers on the beach. You can shoot the explosive drums nearby to take them out easily as well.
3 Get back to defending Goro by destroying the three Mongol warships that appear.


Take out the archers in yellow first.

You will be pit against several types of enemies in this Tale, including archers in yellow that fire flaming arrows. They prove the most dangerous if not taken out immediately. Always make it a priority to take them out first, followed by the regular archers while fighting your way to the hwacha tower.

Lure enemies to the white circle.

You can try to lure enemies inside the white circle where the hwacha arrows will come down on to make them easier to deal with. You will have a few seconds to get out just before the arrows rain down  so be sure to roll away quickly to avoid getting clipped.
