Where to Get Magatama in Ghostwire Tokyo

Magatama in Ghostwire is one of the most important resources, but tracking it down isn't so simple.

Magatama in Ghostwire Tokyo is a rare resource used for unlocking certain branches of your skill tree. There’s also a trophy for collecting all Magatama, though it takes a lot of work and several hundred thousand Meika spent at the Nekomatas' heirloom shops.

Even if you're not interested in the trophy, it's worth gathering Magatama to unlock some of the best skills in the game.

How To Get Magatama in Ghostwire Tokyo

Nearly every Magatama comes from completing yokai hunt side quests. These are missions that task you with sealing, defeating, rescuing, helping, or following – or a combination of all those – specific yokai.

It’s usually to help a lone spirit, human or otherwise, ease their burden and move on, so there’s narrative value in pursuing these quests along with the more practical value of getting Magatama.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
