How to Guard in My Hero One’s Justice 2
Guarding in My Hero One’s Justice 2 is fairly straight forward.
All you need to do is press and hold down the R1 button on PlayStation 4, or the RB button on Xbox One. Doing so will trigger your character’s guard, and allow them to intercept incoming damage.
This can allow you to prevent yourself from being knocked back by an attack, or pulled into a combo that would otherwise stun you long enough for your opponent to deal heavy damage to you.

When the Best Times to Guard Are
However, it’s important to note that there are times when you should and shouldn’t guard in My Hero One’s Justice 2.
If your enemy is using standard attacks against you, then using your guard is a good move. They won’t be able to break through it unless they finish their combo with an unblockable attack, and if they attempt to do so, you can exit your guard and let them have it.
However, if your opponent is readying a Quirk attack or unblockable attack, then you’re better off dodging. These attacks can break through a guard easily, and if you’re not careful, you’ll be left open to several more attacks while your character tries to regain their composure.
