One of Biomutant’s most compelling gameplay features is its martial arts combat system. Its depth is such that it remains engaging through the entire experience. But while the flashy attacks might be the most entertaining aspect, you’ll need to master defense if you’re going to take on the game’s toughest enemies. Here’s how to block and parry attacks in Biomutant.
How to Block & Parry Attacks in Biomutant
Blocking and parrying in Biomutant is all about timing. More than anything though, you need to watch out for the little lightning bolts that appear above an enemy’s head, which indicate they’re about to attack. It’s at this moment you need to quickly press LB/ L1 when they’re attacking, and you’ll block and parry their attack.
This will briefly stun them, and if you perfectly counter an enemy attack and then attack them again, you can then launch them into the air with LB/L1 again. This opens up a bunch of combos, not to mention stunning enemies allows you to get a few hits in quickly.
As we mentioned right at the top, defense in Biomutant is just as important as learning attacking combos, especially because you’ll frequently find yourself surrounded by lots of enemies in combat situations. If you can block incoming attacks, you won’t need to lean on health replenishment as much, and you can also get away with wearing less armor.
That does it for how to block and parry attacks in Biomutant. For more useful tips and tricks for the game, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s guide wiki. Otherwise, you should see some related content below that may prove helpful.
