Recover Sashimono Banners
You’ll find Numata Settlement to the north of Akashima Village and it will most likely be the first you encounter in Act II. You’ll also find this is one of the more larger Outposts here with a whole host of objectives such as claiming Sashimono Banners, recovering Stolen Iron and defeating the War General.
It’s best to approach this from the southeast and take the time to pick off any Mongols that may be on their own, archers especially. On this section of the settlement, you’ll find both Banners and Eagles to release along with being able to use the houses to lure Mongols and snipe them from safety. From here, you have a good outlook on the rest of the Outpost and you can use the nearby bridge to lure large groups of Mongols and toss Blackpowder Bombs or Sticky Bombs at them.
Concentrate on taking down the Mongols first, this will mark the rest of the collectibles in this settlement on your map as the Banners and Eagles especially are fairly spread out. You’ll start finding trees with grapple points on them in this settlement too, this can help you get across the area unseen. Once you clear the settlement, be sure to pocket the Records found in one of the huts.
