How to COUNTER ATTACK and PERFECT GUARD – THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD
In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link can use his combat skills to create openings while fighting enemies to go in for some devastating attacks. This can be done by repelling an attack by parrying with his shield, which in turn causes the enemy to stagger and creates a vulnerable opening. It’s very useful during combat to make your own openings and slice up some goblins, provided that you know what you’re doing and land it well. So that you can make use of it, we’ll walk you through how to counter attack (Perfect Guard) in Breath of the Wild.
In order to pull this move off, ready your shield up and target the enemy by pressing ZL, just as they are about to land a hit on your face, use the A button to raise your shield against the attack. The enemy will lose their balance once striking your shield, allowing you to land a direct hit while they recover during that time. This counter attack move is referred to as the Perfect Guard in Breath of the Wild.
