Ghost of Tsushima Bamboo Strike locations number 16 in total to find.

In the interest of populating their open-world with a plethora of activities for players to find, Sucker Punch implemented a short reflex-based mini-quest chain known as Bamboo Strikes. These are found all over the island of Tsushima and involve completing a three-button combination sequence before time runs out. Unsurprisingly, each sequence is more difficult than the last.

The Bamboo Strikes are an allusion to the practice of cutting through a cluster of bamboo in a single swing. Completing a Bamboo Strike increases Jin's resolve which unlocks more health, recovery, and abilities in combat.

For those having trouble hitting their combos on time, the game's accessibility option removes the timer completely.

Below is a full list of Bamboo Strike locations in Ghost of Tsushima.
