Sekiro Prosthetic Arm is a special contraption in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Known as the Shinobi Prosthetic, the arm was crafted by the Sculptor of the Desolate Temple, and facilitates the use of several tools and weapons for the protagonist, Sekiro.

How to Use Sekiro's Prosthetic Arm

How to Use Prosthetic Tools

Prosthetic Tools

  • Grappling Hook, or more correctly a kunai with a rope attached, is an integral part of the Shinobi Prosthetic arm (and most likely the gameplay mechanics as well), and can probably not be unequipped.

  • The Firecracker can be used to distract or stun enemies to allow the player to escape dire situations.

Prosthetic Weapons

  • Shuriken

  • The Loaded Axe is a short axe that can overpower and break enemy shields.

  • Spear
      (?) One trailer appeared to show a prosthetic something like a spear, wherein the spearhead detached from the arm on a long pole, which could be used to pull out-of-range enemies closer. 

  • Conjecture: Some kind of fireball-cannon, it's assumed that this is also the item that can enhance the main katana with a fire buff. In the screenshots of the box-art we also see the protagonist with a second katana on his back, so dual wielding might also be a thing.

Prosthetic Defences

  • The Flame Vent sprays flames on your enemies and coats your sword on fire.

  • The Steel Umbrella is a steel fan seen in the trailer that opens up like a shielding umbrella.
