The Firecracker prosthesis is quite practical in many cases, especially against animals. You can use it to distract enemies and knock them out of attacking animations. You can also open them for attack while they are temporarily stunned. Try firecrackers against the Blazing Bull and Gyoubu, the horse's general. You need 500 Sen to catch the firecracker, so you should save the purses you find in the first section of the game so you can catch it.
You must find a particular dealer to catch him The Firecracker He is located in the Outskirts Wall – Gate Path area, near the stairs leading to the idol for the Outskirts Wall – Stairway area. Right after you've met the woman she thinks is her son, you'll see a gate and a stairway just beyond. At the top of the stairs is a guy who sees you from afar and shoots at cannonballs. Instead of approaching him, look to the left where you can hold on.
You are now at the foot of a stone tower. Look for more stops until you reach the summit. There you will find a merchant mob tent and a man. He will sell you Robert's firecrackers, which the sculptor can fit into your prosthesis in the dilapidated temple.
The Flame Vent is really easy to miss, but it's very important against certain enemy types. You will occasionally encounter red-eyed Berserker enemies that will be difficult for you and that will not be surprised by attacks or distractions. The red-eyed enemies, however, are afraid of fire – it does not cause any additional damage, but they are forced to break up and break some of their attacking animations, giving you some room to breathe. Fire attacks can inflict Fire damage to enemies over time.
The flame valve is located in the Hirata Estate area, accessible from the ruined temple. You first have to talk to the woman in the ruined house in Ashina Outskirts. Let her think that you are her son and she will give you a bell to sacrifice to the Buddha. Take this to the sculptor in the dilapidated temple and he'll tell you to offer it to the Buddha sculpture next to him. If you do that, you will go back to Hirata Estate in time as it is attacked and burned by bandits.
If you are in the past, continue until you reach the Estate Path area. From the statue of Idol, you will see a road in front of you that ends in a closed gate. To get around this, you have to jump the wall to the right and enter an area with small huts. You first pass a courtyard with three enemies, then jump on another wall into an area with a series of huts where enemies are patrolling. There is also an archer on one of the roofs in front and to the left when you enter this section for the first time.
If you push to the far end of this area, you'll find several enemies at a small campfire near one of the two huts Take them out and inspect the campfire itself to discover the prosthesis hidden between the flames.
One of the stronger, harder prostheses is the ax, and you want it for handling with annoying guys wearing wooden shields, and little assassins with big hats. If you hit the ax against these guys, you immediately destroy their defenses, and you can engage in fatalities. You can also use it to spin enemies, which makes it useful in many battles.
The ax is easy to miss, but right after finding the Flame Vent. Go back in time with the bell you receive from the woman on the outskirts of Ashina and head to the Estate Path area. From the statue of Idol, walk across the wall to the right and through the area with the rows of rows of huts and the patrolling enemies. Past the campfire, where several enemies are sitting and you have found the Flame Vent, you will find a path that leads up some steps. This road will take you past the closed gate you saw before, and you will find an injured samurai who will tell you to find the Shinobi Ax in a nearby shrine.
When you are back on the main path, you will see two enemies on your right, standing in front of a closed gate. Instead, turn in the other direction so that you go back to the closed gate. Jump up the wall to your left and you should see two men standing in front of a small building. They can eavesdrop on them to hear them talk about not wanting to burn the shrine. Kill and open it to find the Shinobi Ax in it.
