Rot Hats are collectables in Kena: Bridge Of Spirits that you can find throughout the world. You can unlock various designs by finding them in Treasure Chests, completing Story Quests and a whole host of other activities.
This guide will show you all of the Rot Hat Locations and how to get them.
Once you unlock a Rot Hat, you can purchase them from Rot Hat Carts stationed throughout the world. You can then equip them to your little Rot creatures; they don't do anything other than make your Rot look super awesome!
The Village is one of the largest areas in the game. Many of the Rot Hats are locked behind Story quests, so not all of them are available right at the beginning. We've put a note on what abilities you need in order to obtain each Rot Hat in this area.
