For Honor character guide: the Valkyrie has great range and trip attacks, best used offensively

21 Feb

The Valkyrie in For Honor is a bit of a badass, but only if you use her right.

The Valkyrie in For Honor will receive a few changes with the next update, but until then, you are free to go nuts with her.

Some of the changes coming to the Valkyrie in For Honor are buffs to some of her moves and a reduction in recovery time on others. Once the For Honor update drops, the following changes will be made to the Valkyrie:

  • Light attacks: reduced recovery time
  • Light chains: reduced time between attacks
  • Pouncing Thrust & Hunter’s Strike: increased damage and link options after those moves
  • Shield Crush: add link to Light Attack chains
  • Hunter’s Rush: reduced recovery time

There are also game wide changes coming to all Guard Breaks to make the countering mechanic more inline with the beta, but until then, here’s a quick guide on how to play the hybrid hero as she currently stands.

As Arekkz notes in his video, the Valkyrie is a complex class to play despite her versatility, so hopefully this guide will help you make the most of what she has to offer.

Also, please note the controller buttons mentioned below (X, RB etc) are for Xbox One, so it goes without saying PlayStation 4 and PC players will have different configurations. We included these for explanation purposes only.

First up is her Superior Block Light Attacks. During the start of any Light Attack, a block property is in place. This can be used to counter incoming attacks if properly times. Her shield will flash orange at the start of any light attack and if your Light Attack matches the direction if an opponents incoming move, you will counter it – similar to parry but slightly easier. Once the attack is countered, the Valkyrie can follow up with her own attack. While the light attack obviously does less damage, it opens the door for attack chains.

One of the chain combos is called Boar Hunter, which is a chain of three Light Attacks (RB, RB, RB). To pull it off, the first attack must not have been blocked by the opponent. If the first two attacks land, the third one will stun the enemy, leaving it vulnerable to any other attack you wish to use. You can also use Spear Sweep (unblockable) as the third move in the chain to knock down your enemy.

Thrust and Slash is another chain which consists of two Light Attacks and one Heavy Attack (RB, RB, RT). As with Boar Hunter, use Spear Sweep as the third move in the chain to knock down your enemy. If you choose the Heavy attack instead, it will pull a sweep anyway, knocking the opponent down and ripe for a follow-up.

The Third chain, Harrier’s Fury starts with a Heavy Attack followed by two Light Attacks (RT, RB, RB). Again, the third attack can be replaced with Spear Sweep.

One of the Valkyrie’s moves is called Hunter’s Rush. It’s a good chase move in which the player will sprint toward the target, press RT for a Heavy Attack which has a rather large reach. This makes it so you can go into attack mode before your opponent is even in range. You can open with this, or chase them down as already mentioned. Make sure you aren’t locked in guard mode or this won’t work.

Pouncing Thrust is another move which you dodge forward and perform a Light Attack (forward, A, RB). Here, the Valkyrie will leap toward their opponent, and it has some rather nice range. This move can also be followed up by a chain attack such as Boar Hunter or Thrust and Slash or even one of the Guard Break options.

Similar to Pouncing Thrust is Hunter’s Strike only instead of going forward, you’ll go left or right when dodging then performing a Light Attack. A chain combo can be used as the first attack as well.

Guard matches the direction of the Valkyrie’s dodge, so if you dodge in the same direction as the incoming attack, it will be blocked. If followed with a Heavy attack, the player can then go into Shoulder Pin which adds a bleed effect.

The Valkyrie also has two shield moves, one called Shield Crush. This is a Heavy Attack followed up by Guard Break (RT, X). This pushes the enemy back providing an opportunity to use chains. The other is Shield Tackle (down, A, Guard Break [X]). You you hold guard break, you will assume a stance which allows you to block without having to match the incoming attack. That said, it will drain stamina quickly, so don’t rely on it too much. Once you let off Guard Break when in this stance, you will then go into a Shield Tackle or press RB to go into a Pouncing Thrust.

for_honor_valkyrie_3

She can also make use of a move called Ram’s Headbutt where if you go into Guard Break (X) and press and hold the button again (X,X) you will headbutt your enemy. The longer you hold Guard Break the farther the opponent will be knocked back. If you don’t hold Guard Break, it will just headbutt them resulting in a push back. If you do it with the hold (X,X) it will push them back and stun the enemy.

This can then be followed by by the unblockable move Spear Sweep which is a double Guard Break move used with down and Heavy Attack (X,X, down, RB). You can also go from Shield Crush into Spear Sweep by using Heavy Attack, Guard Break, down, then Heavy Attack again (RB, X, down, RB). Again, Spear Sweep cannot be blocked, but it can be evaded or interrupted by other players. Be sure to mix things up if relying on Spear Sweep as your opponent could catch on if you continue to use the same moveset. Also, continuous Speak Sweep combos will drain stamina.

Arekkz also notes you can use a Zone Attack to clear enemies out of the way without fear of interruption. While it clears the way while applying moderate damage, it will use half of the player’s stamina, so it’s best to use in sticky situations only. Players can also cancel a second attack should they need to by pressing the corresponding button (Xbox One users would normally press B).

The Valkyrie’s shield and ability to trip players is a core part of the class’s strategy. Some attacks are slow to set up and easy to read, so it’s best to wait for the opponent to attack first, and attempt to counter it. This especially true to due the class having strong guard skills and waiting on the opponent is easier than trying to go on the offensive.

Of course you can jump in with Hunter’s Strike or Pouncing Thrust but should you get countered, you don’t have a lot of health. Therefore, it’s best not to get caught off guard. And always try to use a Heavy Attack after performing Spear Sweep as the opponent will be down on the ground.

In short: play the Valkyrie offensively, react to the enemy, take advantage of the character’s range, sneak in trip wherever you can, and hopefully you’ll take your opponents down in no time.

There’s a few more suggestions on how to use the Valkyrie in Arekkz’s video – so be sure to give it a watch.

For Honor guide: strategy, tips, guard breaks, character guides and more

15 Feb

Battle valiantly with the help of our guide.

for_honor_header_3

For Honor is pretty damn good, it turns out. After what feels like a long development and an even longer string of betas, Ubisoft’s melee-based multiplayer brawler appears to have really struck a chord with critics and people in general – the servers are packed, and if we’re honest there’s not that much honor going on out there.

For Honor’s brutal kills and no-holds-barred fighting is what makes the game special, though there are some aspects of the game that are a little more difficult to get to grips with. You don’t want to be a complete disgrace on the battlefield, and so to help avoid that terrible fate we’ve been putting together some pages to give you a helping hand.

You’ll need to understand fully how to build reputation points just as importantly as when to parry, and we’re also breaking down the multiple characters and how to get honorable (and dishonorable) kills, amongst many other nuances. It’s all here, and if you check it out you’re sure to be fighting longer and harder than your enemies.

For Honor Strategy Guide & Tips: Major things you need to know

  • 9 tips for beginners that you absolutely need to know

    Here’s a secret about For Honor: It’s one of the most demanding and mechanically-complex games of this generation. Because of the game’s unique mix of fighting game mechanics and Soulsborne-style action combat, you’ll need to approach it right. Our tips will help beginners to get in the zone.

  • How to parry and guard break with the right timing

    There’s not much that’s more important in a game about melee combat than learning how to block properly. The parry is even more important, since doing so properly allows you to not only mitigate incoming damage but also use the enemy’s attack against them. It can be difficult to master – but we explain how.

  • Honorable and dishonorable kills explained

    Fitting to the name of the game, For Honor features two types of kills: Honorable and Dishonorable. Sometimes you’ll be tasked to get a certain number of one or the other, but to do that you need to know how the game classifies the pair. That’s where we come in…

For Honor character guide: meet the Lawbringer, deadly tank and parry king

15 Feb

Get to know the Lawbringer, a deadly combination of a Tank and Vanguard.

For Honor has a wide range of characters available to play, each coming with their own unique set of abilities and a play-style to match. In the past we’ve had videos from Arekkz covering Shugoki and Peacekeeper, but now it’s time to tackle somebody new: The Lawbringer.

Lawbringer is part of the Knights faction and is an interesting combination of a Tank style character and a Vanguard style character – by which we basically mean he has the ability to take hits like a tank but is really built around his wide range of abilities and his natural predilection for counter-attacking.

Key to using the Lawbringer is the ability to properly parry – he’s all about parrying ill-informed attacks and then letting rip on a newly opened-up enemy. Thankfully, we’ve got a guide all about parrying – go read it.

Lawbringer has a unique ability called Stunning Top-Heavy attacks. This unique little extra ability basically means that if you hit an enemy with any attack the game considers ‘top heavy’ the enemy will be stunned, leaving them open for free hits or the start of a nasty combo. A top heavy attack is any high stance heavy attack, and this ability can thus be paired with some of his combos to leave an enemy stunned at a combo’s end.

One particularly useful combo for this is Judge, Jury & Executioner (Light Attack, Heavy Attack, Heavy Attack), since the final hit of this chain is unblockable. Make it top heavy and make your enemies pay!

Other useful moves for the Lawbringer include the Impaling Charge (Sprint + Heavy Attack), a move that you can use to impale enemies and push them into a corner or even off a ledge if you’re going for a dishonorable kill. There’s also the Polearm (Back + Guard Break), an unblockable throw that doesn’t deal damage but does leave the enemy on their ass, ready for a beating.

There’s more on the Lawbringer’s devastating techniques, plus some suggested combos and strategies, in Arekkz’ video – go give it a look!

The best TV for PS4 Pro and Xbox One S – 4K gaming with HDR

15 Feb

Thinking of upgrading to the new consoles? We can help you find the right TV.

With technology moving as fast as it currently does, you may have already started thinking about upgrading your existing television to a 4K TV in order to make the most of your PS4 Pro or Xbox One S, both of which boast 4K capabilities. No doubt the upcoming Scorpio will as well. With that in mind, here’s our pick for the best TV for PS4 Pro and 4K in general.

Sure, your fancy 1080p HDTV was top of the range when you picked it up roughly a decade ago but technology, especially the tech inside high-end TV sets, advances at such a blistering pace, it’s hard to stay relevant for more than a year. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a handful of years out of your television before some company comes along with the next big thing. Once HD had hit the scene, Smart TVs soon followed. Then, 3D made itself known after which Curved TVs were the new ‘in thing’. Nowadays 4K and HDR is the duo you’ll need to look out for when buying a new TV.

If you’re on the hunt for a new TV, you may own a PS4 Pro, Xbox One S or be planning to pick up at least one of them. In which case, you’ll be wanting a TV that is as good for gaming as it is for movie-watching. 4K as a resolution (sometimes referred to as UHD or ‘Ultra High Definition’) improves upon 1080p by increasing the number of pixels the screen uses to display an image. The more pixels, the clearer and more detailed an image can be. With gaming, you’ll need to make sure you get a set with low image latency and a quick response time in order to make sure you don’t feel a huge delay between pushing a button and seeing an action appear onscreen.

While 4K TVs were impossibly expensive just a handful of years ago, prices have come down far enough to be affordable for most homes in just the last twelve months or so. Prices will undoubtedly keep falling in the near future too, as 4K becomes the new standard for televisions going forward. If you happen to pick up a discontinued model – especially a curved TV, as these aren’t made as often now – you could just snap up a bargain, as well.

4K TVs are available with and without HDR but in order to take full advantage of a PS4 Pro, you’re going to want that HDR (high-dynamic range) as well. While a 4K picture will be a huge improvement over 1080p, HDR vastly improves image quality by expanding colour dimensions and depth, creating truly vivid images when games and movies take advantage of the tech.

If you’re looking to take things up a notch, we can talk about OLED. The technology, which stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) has been available for a while but for most, it’s prohibitively expensive. OLED sets have seen some decent discounts over the last few months but don’t expect to pick one of these up in a clearance sale anytime soon. OLED, along with the vastly underused DolbyVision tech, promise increasingly better image quality as the technology gets perfected over time. In every possible way, an OLED set is the best image quality you can currently get on the consumer market at the moment though they tend to price themselves out of most people’s choices.

So what is it you’ll need to look out for when shopping for a 4K TV as an owner of a PS4 Pro or Xbox One S? Well, it’s easy to break it down into a few categories.

  • Resolution: If you have one of the aforementioned consoles, you’ll want a TV that is at least a 4K (UHD) resolution at up to 60Hz.
  • HDR10: High Dynamic Range (known as HDR or HDR10) is a must-have when buying a 4K television. Not only will you get a vastly deeper colour scheme and improved image quality but you’ll be future-proofing your purchase for many years to come.
  • Input Lag: As a video game player, low input lag is a must. You’re going to want something under 40ms if possible, or as close to that as you can get.
  • Colour space and brightness: Wide colour gamut (WCG colour space) BT.2020 processing and the highest possible brightness (1000 Nits or better) are essential to make sure that the HDR tech is operating at its fullest.
  • Screen size and shape: This is something of a must to have in mind when shopping for any new TV, 4K or not. Consider what you will ideally want out a new television. How much space do you have in your home for a new screen? Does a curved screen suit you better than a standard flat set? Budget will come into play here as well as living space but to be able to use 4K in any real capacity, you’re going to need a TV of at least 45 inches big. Anything less than that and 4K doesn’t really get a chance to kick in. Officially, a 60-inch screen is recommended for PS4 Pro and Xbox One S consoles but you’ll do just fine with a 55-inch in a pinch.
  • Manufacturers: Here it is, the big question. Often times, big electronics purchases come down to buying a brand name that you’re previously aware of. That being said, it’s not the defining quality of any one TV set. Each manufacturer has its pros and cons and no two companies will make TVs the same. Even still, the three biggest competitors in this field – Sony, Samsung and LG – largely dominate the field by outclassing the vast majority of other TVs. That’s not to say that companies like Panasonic and Philips don’t have quality televisions on the market, they do, but when it comes to pure picture quality, the big three can’t be beaten.

If you want the best, you’re going to want an OLED TV but no one in the world can blame you for not being able to afford one of these luxury sets. Whether or not you’ll be aiming to get one of these will depend entirely on your budget and with so many high-quality LCD sets out there, it may be an easier choice than you think. Nonetheless, here are our top picks for the best TV for PS4 Pro, Xbox One S and 4K gaming.

The best: LG OLEDxxB6D series

LG 4K OLED big

Well, here it is. The best of the best. LG’s range of OLED TVs is second-to-none when it comes to picture quality. There’s no two ways about it, the pairing of 4K resolution, HDR, DolbyVision and an OLED screen make this the quite realistically the best television you can currently buy in terms of picture quality. On top of incomprehensibly good image integrity, this set is a mere 2.7mm thin, making it one of the most attractive sets we’ve seen. Every luxury can be found in this set, including a rather beautiful 36.8ms input lag and a shockingly good onboard sound system.

This model is eyebrow-raisingly expensive in either 55-inch or 65-inch models but if you have the budget or are willing to save your money for a long while, this is as good as it gets.

High end: LG series xxUH7700

Lg Super UHD

If your budget isn’t quite expansive enough to allow for an OLED set, LG still has you covered when it comes to high-end LCD screens. The 7700 series of 4K TVs offers crystal clear picture quality with an IPS 4K Quantum Display integrating a 10-bit panel generating a billion colours at any one time. Ultra Luminance is the name of the tech that allows for brighter whites and deep, dark blacks depending on what you’re watching or playing.

Also included here is HDR10 capabilities and DolbyVision, so you’ll be properly future proofed for a good few years if you hang onto this set. Available in anything from 49-inch to 65-inch sizes, the 7700 LG series of 4K TVs is absolutely stellar and is about the best you can get without opting for an OLED screen. It’s not quite there but it comes pretty close.

Mid-range: Samsung series UExxKU6000 and UExxKU6100

Samsung UHD

Samsung takes pride of place in the mid-range of our list, filling out the middle section proudly with its 6000 and 6100 series TVs available in flat or curved models. Both editions of the set offer a beautiful, clear image quality with 4K resolution, HDR10 as well as quad core processing for quick, efficient multitasking between menus and channels.

Where the Samsung 6 series really excels is in the price point, it’s not all that far off of its higher-end equivalent from LG but it comes at a much reduced price point depending on size, making it extremely attractive to gamers who’s budgets have had to have been split between buying a console and a 4K TV. In terms of value propositions, it’s hard to knock the Samsung 6 series as it walks the line between affordability and overall quality quite beautifully.

Entry level: Sony series KD-xxXD8088 

Sony Braviaz

Now, just because it’s the cheapest TV on this list does not mean it’s the worst. As a matter of fact, any and all of the TVs in this post offer beautifully clear, high-quality images and some above average performance at minimum. That being said, if you happen to have a lower budget than any of the above televisions allow but don’t want to compromise on quality, the Sony KD8088 series may be your best bet.

Featuring full 4K resolution along with HDR10 and an excellent input lag of 33ms, it’s an ideal set for gaming as well as casual TV or movie watching. It won’t set the world on fire or drop any jaws when it comes to setting itself apart from the competition but it does the job required of it rather beautifully and is about as fully-featured as you can ask for out of a set in this price range. In short, if you need a 4K television without breaking the bank, this model will serve you well for at least the next few years.


So there you have it, those are our top picks for the absolute best TVs for 4K gaming, the best TVs for PS4 Pro and Xbox One S in particular. Have we missed any that you think we should have included? Be sure to let us know! Happy shopping out there.

Resident Evil 7 Daughters walkthrough: how to get the true ending in Banned Footage Vol 2 DLC

14 Feb

Be a model daughter. Get the good ending.

Banned_Footage_DLC_Daughters_Resident_Evil_7_Biohazard

Resident Evil 7’s second DLC drop has now arrived, featuring two more story expansion chapters for the game paired with another non-canon adventure. The story chapters continue the long suffering adventures of Clancy and also offer a bit of insight into the life of the Bakers before they befell a terrible fate… and here we’re going to talk about the latter.

Daughters, as the chapter is called, puts you into the shoes of Zoe Baker, at first on the fateful night when their lives would change forever. A word of warning here – this DLC hinges upon major events that are revealed very late in Resident Evil 7’s main story, so if you’re looking for the maximum impact out of the main narrative you should play this DLC after finishing the core game.

Daughters has two potential endings – a bad ending that spells disaster for Zoe plus the ‘True Ending’, the ending which also isn’t so hot for her but ultimately leads into the events of Resident Evil 7 proper.

We’re going to keep story elements to a minimum in this guide, but here’s how to get both endings in a nice easy-to-digest breakdown. SPOILERS, obviously.

Resident Evil 7 Daughters Banned Tape: how to get the true ending

In order to get the ‘true’ ending of the daughters tape you’ll actually have to head to a place not quite so obvious at first. Here are the basic steps:

  • When instructed, head to the laundry room (the first save room from the main story after the dinner scene) and pick up the change of clothes.
  • Instead of just leaving the laundry room, hop down into the crawlspace (again, familiar from the main story) and crawl through towards the pantry. On the way through the crawlspace, grab the LOCKPICK – it’s hard to miss.
  • When you head upstairs, don’t head straight to the indicated room, but instead duck into the bathroom. (Remember where you got the first wooden puzzle piece in the main game?) There’s a locked drawer in here – grab the SMALL COMPONENT inside.
  • The small component you just grabbed actually isn’t vital to the true ending, but it will give you some cool story background. Once you’re in Lucas’ room (where Eveline is), after the short scene when Jack leaves don’t go up to Evie right away. Instead, turn right and look in the corner of the room….
  • There’s a trophy in the corner of the room. Use the component on it to insert the component into the trophy. Stairs drop. Head on up!
  • Upstairs, read the note and then use the laptop. Earlier on if you’d snooped around Lucas at the dinner table you’ll have seen him put his code into his phone: the code is 1019. Input it into the computer. Have a read.
  • With that done, head on back downstairs, interact with Evie. Yeesh. Head downstairs, you’ll find Lucas. Check he’s okay. You hear a noise upstairs, head upstairs, find Maugerite.
  • Out of the bathroom when ordered, run down to the garage! Open the door with the button, then grab the ROPE from inside.
  • Once you return upstairs, the situation changes again. Run away and hide in the Recreation Room (the room where you found the Mia tape). As you head through the door, turn around and face the door again – use the rope on the door to tie it shut, buying yourself time.
  • Go into the room marked as Grandma’s Room (remember where you get the Broken Shotgun as Ethan?) and find a FORK.
  • Leave grandma’s room, and use the fork to pull the nails out of a boarded-up window in the Recreation Room to get out onto the balcony.
  • Outside, turn right. Walk as far as you can. Notice right in front of you there’s a bright red box, out of reach… take note. On your right you’ll see a tiny opening – go through it.
  • Once through the opening, turn left. Look for the red box you just saw. Open it to find a DOG HEAD RELIEF. You’ll know all about these bad boys from the main story.
  • With that done, head inside and enter the main hall. There’s an enemy down here, prowling about. Don’t get spotted.

This is where things branch.

How to get the bad ending of the Daughters DLC

If you head back towards the main area of the house where the Kitchen and so on are, Maugerite will appear. She’ll scare you, but then have an attack of conscience.

She’ll give you keys to the Baker’s car and tell you to go. Run to the garage, but be aware on the way you’re going to have to dodge daddy. Get to the garage and get into the car… welcome to the bad ending.

How to get the good ending of the Daughters DLC

Either after Maugerite gives you the keys or before she has the chance sneak to the main door of the house out into the yard. Instead of going to the car, even if you have the keys, head out to the trailer instead. To do this you’ll need the Dog Head – slot it on into the door.

An earlier note in this DLC indicated the Bakers’ other sudden guest was out in the trailer. Go out there and find her. Examine the note on the table and the item the unconscious Mia is holding. This is the true ending.

For Honor character guide: get to know Shugoki, the powerful but slow Samurai disruptor tank

14 Feb

For Honor offers a range of heroes. Which one is right for you? Maybe it’s the big guy.

For Honor beginners should consider trying out Shugoki, a relatively easy hero classified as a disruptor tank.

Although Shugoki won’t help you against For Honor veterans and is weak against more agile foes, he’s powerful and straightforward, making him a good place to get started. His high health pool, powerful attacks and array of stunning or knock back moves make up for his slow speed.

Shugoki not your thing? Check out our For Honor character guide: Peacekeeper.

In the For Honor video above, Arekkz goes over each of Shugoki’s moves in detail. First up is his passive ability, Uninterruptible Stance, which prevent interruption from one attack before needing to recharge. This allows players to take a blow as they wind up a slow but heavy attack, but be wary – subsequent attacks will interrupt Shugoki, and also deal more damage. This ability recharges after a few seconds, but more slowly if Shugoki is blocking, taking damage or out of stamina.

Shugoki’s Charging Heavy Attack is slow and uses a lot of stamina, making it one of For Honor’s riskier moves, but it also does a lot of damage, is unblockable and has a lot of synergy with Shugoki’s passive. Hold down heavy attack in guard mode to perform this move.

Bash & Smash is a simple light attack, heavy attack combo but what makes it unique is Shugoki isn’t interrupted when his light attacks are blocked, making this one of the easiest combos to land in For Honor.

Bonecrusher is a really straight forward combo – just two heavy attacks. It does a lot of damage.

More interesting is Crashing Thunder. A great opener, especially when For Honor throws multiple enemies at you at once, it charges into enemies and ends with a wide-reaching swing. Simply sprint and press heavy attack while not in guard mode to perform this.

Charge of the Oni is an unblockable charge which knocks enemies down and back. You can use it to get through enemies and back to your allies, or cancel out of the charge to follow up with an attack on your downed target.

Demon’s Embrace is a real game changer: it usually deals damage while healing Shugoki, but if you’re in critical mode (that is, close to death), it’s a guaranteed kill even if your enemy is at full health. It can be tricky to land this grab as most For Honor players can read it easily, but you can cancel into it from a heavy attack, which can trick your foe.

Demon Bull is a heavy attack performed after a guard break, which sends enemies flying away. If they’re near a ledge or pit they’ll regret it, and you’ll gain some breathing room.

As well as knocking enemies back using the moves described above, Shugoki can Headbutt foes after light or heavy attacks, and this attack will briefly disorient enemies.

Finally, Shugoki’s zone attack, performed by pressing both light and heavy attacks, is a big double swing with huge reach. You can cancel out of it after the first swing, too.

Become a master yokai-slaying samurai.

Nioh has been a long time coming, and its development was no simple matter. At first it was a traditional Japanese RPG, then a Musou-like hack-and-slash style game. Its final release takes a very different form indeed – a thrilling and difficult action RPG that seems to take a number of cues from Dark Souls while also featuring pretty damn cool action-based combat that Nioh’s developer Team Ninja are known for in their Ninja Gaiden series.

It’s good stuff. The reviews agree. Much as with Dark Souls, however, elements of the game can sometimes be a little obtuse or frustrating, so if you’re preparing to go in or if you’re already knee-deep in William’s adventure but struggling, we’ve got some top guide pages and top tips and tricks for you based on our many hours with the game pre-launch.

From understanding the level up stats to fiddling with weapon stances, weapon familiarity and stamina management, we go over some of Nioh’s systems, preparing you to make the most of them to avoid too many deaths… though be warned, you will still die. A lot. So, let’s get to it…

Nioh Strategy Guide & Tips: Major things you need to know

Nioh is a bit of a weird game at times – sometimes it’ll obviously hold your hand and direct you while other times it seems to take a sadistic pleasure in letting you flounder a bit. Allow us to fill in the gaps some – our guide pages will help you not to get so lost in Nioh’s myriad systems.

Tips for Combat: Stance, Stamina, Ki Pulse, Ninjitsu and more

Nioh’s combat is hard. It aims to recreate the precise, perfect movements of a samurai in a sense – and as a result some might even argue it’s a little bit harder than Souls, with more core combat mechanics to worry about at any given moment. To help ensure you don’t get lost, read this – our top beginners’ tips for samurai combat in the game.

16 things you didn’t know you could do in Nioh

First off, let us guide you through some aspects of Nioh that the game itself isn’t all that good at exposing you to. Some of its mechanics and systems are surprisingly hidden – so here’s sixteen points we think you should know.

What the elemental effects do, and how to use them

Like most RPGs, Nioh features the classic elements such as Fire, Water, Lightning and Earth. Each element has its own unique effects, though not all of those effects are as as obvious or as clear-cut as you might think. Here, we explain what each does, and offer up some strategies for their use.

How to get Ochoko Cups to summon visitors for co-op play

Ochoko cups are the all-important item that allows you to summon other players into your Nioh world to help you out in co-op. The catch? They’re pretty rare. We explain how to farm a bunch of them with ease.

How to respec your character and reset your skill points

If you make a mistake and take William down a path you come to regret, all isn’t lost – you can fairly easily reset him for a relatively reasonable price – we explain how to do just that in this guide page.

The Sloth Talisman in Nioh is so broken, it makes boss fights a joke

This little strategy is very likely to be patched because it’s so damn broken, but if a boss in Nioh is giving you a lot of trouble you might want to consider deploying the Sloth Talisman – a powerful little item that really makes mincemeat of bosses. Some might call it cheating, though…

How to beat every boss – strategies, weaknesses and tips

One of the things Nioh kindly borrows from the Souls series is its super-hard boss encounters, each with their own unique weaknesses that, when tackled right, can make an impossible encounter far more reasonable. On this page, we break every boss down in detail.
