Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the latest challenging game issued by From Software, the creative team behind Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series. Sekiro is proving to be just as tasking as From Software’s other titles, leaving many players stumped.
One way to make things easier in this new title is to find all of the shinobi prosthetic tools. Each gadget offers a new and interesting mechanic for the player to add to their combat tactics.
The key to finding the tools is to pay attention every time you see a Sculptor’s Shrine. That being said, things are somewhat more complicated than that. If you want to track down each and every tool in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, check out our guide down below. Gamespot.com was a source for this guide.

Left of the idol, you will see a ledge. Looking over the ledge should reveal a nearby building with a hole in its roof.
Blackhat Badger, a merchant, will be waiting within to sell you the loaded umbrella tool.
For this one, you will need to venture to the Ashine Outskirts. From there, make your way to the Outskirts Wall — Gate Path. Eventually you will discover a destroyed home. Inside the wreckage will be an old woman willing to give you a bell.
The bell can be used as an offering at the Dilapidated Temple. Continue down the path until you find another gate. Rather than going further ahead on the path, grapple up to the location just left of the gate.
Reach the top of the nearby stone tower to locate the Memorial Mob merchant that is willing to sell you the Shinobi Firecracker.

Moving forward, you will eventually find a Sculptor’s Idol near the Estate Path. Leap over a wall to the right of the path.
You will eventually discover a small encampment of enemies. One ground of enemies will be gathered around a campfire. Defeat the foes to discover the fire barrel within the flames. This can be fitted on your prosthetic to form the flame vent.
This next tool is also within the Hirata Estate. After discovering the fire barrel, continue onward. You will eventually come across an injured samurai. The samurai will alert you that the axe is nearby.
Continue forward until the path splits. Take the road left and leap up the nearby wall. Overhead you will see a group of enemies surrounding a shrine. Take out the enemies and loot the axe within the shrine.
You will also need to go to the Hirata Estate for this tool. You will need to venture forth throughout the estate until you face the Shinobi Hunter.
Defeat the hunter in order to venture forwards into the Bamboo Thicket Slope. A Sculptor’s Idol will be nearby.
Continue forward passed the idol until you have the ability to leap upwards and continue a higher path to a nearby river. Swim in the river and make your way under the nearby bridge.
