Find Yuna in Komatsu Forge – Meet up with the Straw Hats

1 Look for Yuna in Komatsu Forge and talk to her. Afterwards, go with her to Taka at the forge.
2 Talk to Taka and Ryuzo. Afterwards, go with Ryuzo to meet with the other Straw Hat ronin. Talk to Ryuzo again after speaking with the Straw Hat ronin.

Travel to Fort Yatate with the Straw Hats

1 Ride with Ryuzo to Fort Yatate. Make your way to the edge of the cliff on foot.
2 Run toward the edge of the cliff and grapple on to the branches using the R2 button. Press the x button to land to the next cliff across the gap. Do this to reach the next cliff as well. Afterwards, look up to the right and grapple onto the wall. Climb up using the left analog stick.
3 After getting up, follow the path to another gap and grapple onto the trunk. Climb up again.
4 Continue along the path and take the one on the right after squeezing through the opening in the rocks. You will come up to some handholds to go up.
5 When you get to the top, use the grappling hook again on a branch and then a trunk on a wall. You will have to perform a series of grapples in midair as you go further up to the top of the cliffs to reach Fort Yatate.

Free the Straw Hat prisoners

1 Use the grappling hook to swing to the next building on your left. Swing to the next building ahead. Approach the cells quietly and take out the patrolling Mongols using chain assassination.
2 Free the two Straw Hat ronin in the first cell. Afterwards, head down the circular path next to the first cell and around the big rock to find more cells holding the remaining Straw Hat ronin. Drop down and move along the grass to take out the Mongol guard along the way.
3 Use Focused Hearing before heading for the cells to check the position of Mongol guards nearby. Open the two cells when they move away.

Defeat the Mongols

1 With the Straw Hat ronin with you, take out the remaining Mongols in the area. Afterwards, trigger the signal for Ryuzo to attack.
2 Regroup with Ryuzo by going through the gate of the inner fort. Defeat the mongols quickly before they can react.


Freeing the bear in the first cell block

You can release the bear in the first cell block to attack the Mongols in the area before freeing the Straw Hat ronin. This saves you a bit of trouble killing a few of the enemies off yourself.

Use Chain Assassinate

Having Chain Assassinate makes it easier to deal with the Mongol guards in the area as most of them tend to patrol in pairs.
