Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Guide–Where To Find The Flame Vent To Kill The Ogre

The Shinobi Prosthetic packs some of your best weapons and tools in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Once you unlock the special prosthetic arm, you can use it to grapple up to hard-to-reach places and switch between things like a flame thrower, a big axe, and distracting firecrackers to help you deal with various enemies.

The trouble is, those prosthetic tools aren’t always easy to come by. In fact, they’re mostly hidden in the game world, and you need to track them down in order to use them. They’re definitely worth searching for, too, as they can give you an edge against a lot of different enemies, including bosses. One of those is the Flame Vent, a Shinobi Prosthetic that can blast enemies with fire, dealing burning damage that can persist over time. You can pair it with oil that you’ll find all over the place in Ashina, which can make the burning effects even more powerful.

The Flame Vent prosthetic is good against specific, powerful enemies and bosses. Bad guys with red, glowing eyes are berserkers who aren’t staggered by your attacks, so they can be tough to deal with. But as a rule, those guys are scared of fire, so once you have the Flame Vent, you can use it to make them recoil, giving you a second to heal or an opening to deal some major damage.

Here’s everything you have to do to find the Flame Vent as early as you can, so you’ll have it to deal with some early bosses. While you’re at it, you might want to check out our Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice review, and our rundown of how death and Dragonrot work in the game.

Head To Ashina Outskirts

Your first stop is the Outskirts Wall–Gate Path area. From the Idol Statue, head forward past the samurai general mini-boss, into the area beyond. In that section, down some stairs, you’ll find a blasted house with a woman inside. Talk to her and she’ll ask if you’re her son; if you let her believe you’re her son, she’ll give you a bell to use as an offering. Bring it back to the Dilapidated Temple and use it at the Buddha statue beside the Sculptor. The bell will transport you to Hirata Estate and a memory of an attack there three years earlier.

Continue To Estate Path

Hirata is a fairly lengthy level with lots of enemies to kill along the way. Keep pushing into the compound until you hit an Idol Statue that marks the location as the Estate Path. You’ll be on a pathway up toward a gate, which you’ll find locked. That’ll force you to the right of the path, over a wall and into some yards with huts and houses, and more enemies.

Keep pushing to the right until you hit an area with rows of huts. You’ll find enemies patrolling here, as well as one archer hanging out on the roof of one of the rows. Clear the area, then push up toward the archer. You’ll see several enemies hanging out around a campfire. You’ll need to kill them to get what you came for.

Check The Campfire

Once all the enemies are dead, get close to the campfire. You should get a button prompt there that’ll let you pull the Fire Barrel out of the flames. Return to the Sculptor at the Dilapidated Temple and he’ll turn the Fire Barrel into the Flame Vent prosthetic tool. Use it to blast fire onto enemies; you’ll also eventually be able to upgrade it to shoot flames further.
