Where to find all the bamboo strikes in Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima allows you to explore and pick up many useful items as your journey across the beautiful, open-world environment of 13th century Tsushima Island. Throughout your quest, you'll complete mini-challenges to obtain major collectibles, as well as a suitable reward for your efforts. This is definitely true of Bamboo Strikes, which give your character more Resolve to pull off special moves and recover faster. Having more Resolve is vital to your in-game survival, so you don't want to miss these.

You'll find 16 different Bamboo Strikes in Ghost of Tsushima, but don't worry if you don't locate them all in the first go-round — you can still obtain them once you've completed the main story and are free-roaming through the environment. Bamboo Strikes are scattered across the entire island and are marked by white banners. Once you're in the area, you can use use Golden Birds to find their exact position, then take on the challenge and get your reward. 

It's important to note that the order listed here may not be the order you encounter them in, which depends on which quests you choose first.
