Obviously finding Rot hats in Kena is the most important part of Bridge of Spirits. The game allows you to find and equip lots of hats on the Rot minions that follow you about, a whole range of customisation to make sure that the little spirits that follow you really feel like your own. But finding hats isn’t easy, and it's not clear how you equip them on your Rot friends to follow that. For that reason, we’ve put together a full guide on how you can customise your friends by finding Rot hats in Kena across the world and equipping them.
How to find Rot hats in Kena
To find Rot hats in Kena Bridge of Spirits, players will need to search the world for optional chests found around the map. There’s lots of them hidden and the map will actually helpfully point out how many there are in a single area. You should hunt for them in the same way that you hunt for any collectible: look for optional areas, unsolved puzzles or paths you haven’t taken.
For example, there’s a free one early on that’s a gimme - in the middle of the village, right next to the little market stall. Interact with it to open it and you’ll get the Pot hat, which when equipped puts a little bowl on your Rot’s head. However, to do that, you’ll need to actually equip the new hat.
How to equip and wear Rot hats
To equip any Rot hats you’ve found, you need to actually head to that very market stall in the middle of the village, right next to the chest you found the Pot hat in. Walk around to the front and interact with it to open up a shop menu. Here you can spend your blue crystals to buy new hats, and use R1/L1 to open up the Equip Hats menu, where you select customisation options for your Rot based on whatever cosmetics you’ve unlocked. You can even edit and customise them individually, though you have a limited number of hats. For example, if you have ten Rot following you, but only five hats, then you can equip those five individually and the rest will have to go bare-headed until you find or buy some more. You'll find more of these Rot hat stalls as you explore and you'll always unlock a new hat when you do.
