    This is the default ending that you can get by getting to Owl on top of Ashina Castle and choosing to 'Break the Iron Code, stay loyal to Kuro'. Defeat Owl, then speak to Kuro and you will be told to go to Fountainhead Palace.

    Go to the cave at the back of the Corrupted Monk's boss arena in Ashina Depths and interact with the tent at the back to be taken to Fountainhead Palace. Make your way through the area and defeat the Divine Dragon at the end. Then head back to Kuro's Room and a second modified Ashina Castle, then backtrack to the initial Ashina Castle idol. From the idol, walk through the main gate and into the building on the left. Drop down the hole in the building and make your way to the Ashina Reservoir, fight a Seven Spears miniboss, then enter the secret passage to fight the final boss.

    Defeat him, then give Kuro only the Dragon's Tears to get this ending.

    There is also a method to get this and the other two ending achievements without having to play through the game three times. Once you defeat Sword Saint, save and quit back to the dash and then reenter the game again. Choose to give Kuro the items for the ending you need, then once the achievement pops (when the credits start), hit Guide, press cn_start on Sekiro, choose Manage Game & Add-Ons, scroll down to Saved Data, and choose your saved data, then Delete from Console. Repeat until your data is gone. Now restart the game and you will be able to choose again. Repeat for the other ending to get all three.

    RenattoooStill works, but now I used WIRED network - previously tried wireless and not worked. When killed Isshin rest at the idol! After the achievement popped unplugged the cable immediately. All other as mentioned above in the solution!

    TheGreatRoninTested the endings exploit today (26.04.19) on wireless network and it works like a charm. Thank you for this

    jrod39Endings exploit still worked today, 06/26/2019.

    jrod39One clarification on the method--when you delete the saved game from the console, it closes Sekiro for you. Don't quit Sekiro from the dashboard manually before you delete the saved game.

    zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzOk I just tried this and it put me back at the beginning of the fight?! I’m not sure what I did wrong here. To reiterate... killed him, quit/save game to Sekiro main menu then loaded back in and went Kuro choose first option, cheevo popped. Hit XBOX button went to save game date and deleted local and then started game back up from dashboard. What steps is I do wrong.any further clarification would be sincerely appreciated! Not looking forward to doing this all over again 😭

    aveBlackEscaping still works, as for today (09-06-2020). I tried disconnecting wired network during game, before choosing an option, but cheevo didn't pop. So I tried Renattooo's method, to disconnect as soon as achievement pops. After reconnecting and starting Sekiro, the first cheevo popped :)

    Iraeous The ApeYeah I can't get all 3 endings in one go, unfortunately. I need to ng+ for a few other achievements anyway. Anyone like me, who listened to the exploit, quitting after achievement popped and deleting saved data, don't worry. Completionists need to ng+ anyway. Heard the game has a ton of merit second time around, and feels way easier. Good luck, fellow Shinobi.

    Iraeous The ApeTo add to my latest comment made on one of the other ending chievo guides, this should be marked as MISSABLE, as I thought there were only 3 endings as there were only 3 missable ending chievo's listed as missable. You can miss this one too there, vSully and friends. I must also point out lack of including the fact there are 4 endings in each chievo guide. Your poor wording(s) led me to believe otherwise. "The other 2 endings" does not mean there are 4, but instead implies there are only 3. I got ''immortal severence'', and ''purification'' mixed up as endings, as only shura, purification, and homecoming are the only 3 outta 4 endings marked as missable

    corpirateI just tried the save manipulation and when I reloaded the game, I was back at the dilapidated temple. I travelled to The Sword Saint Isshin area, and there's no one there. I still have the branch, flower, divine dragon's tears, frozen tears.... now what? Have I completely cocked it up?
