Nioh Sub Mission Guide

Nioh Sub Mission Guide
Alongside regular missions and the dreaded Twilight missions Nioh plays host to another rewarding mission type, Sub Missions. This Nioh Sub Mission Guide tells you everything you need to know to unlock new Sub Missions as well as providing information on the rewards and items you get for completing them.

Sub Missions become available after you complete the games first mission, Isle of Demons. Once this is completed you unlock your first Sub Mission, Death to Bandits. Typically you unlock new Sub Missions through completing the main story missions, although some are unlocked through different means. Below is a list of the Sub Missions we’ve discovered so far as well as information pertaining to rewards, how you unlock the Sub Mission and any tips should they be difficult to complete.

It’s also important to note that most Sub Missions enhance rewards once completed. For example: The Finder’s, Keepers Sub Mission provides Smith Text: The Raging Bull’s Armor on initial completion but after that it provides the full Raging Bull set.

Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk.
