Most of the controls for Ghost of Tsushima are pretty straightforward, but getting used to using R2 to interact takes a bit of time. The biggest hurdle to success is getting used to holding R2 to change stances during combat, or hold L2 to swap your ranged weapon. With a bit of practice, however, you’ll be able to take on any foes that Jin Sakai may face.
