With a Tokyo bereft of life and many supernatural creatures roaming the streets, it is clear that combat is unavoidable in Bethesda and Tango Gamework’s Ghostwire Tokyo. However, you are not exactly going to be able to go on the offensive all the time, and having a great defense can ensure you stay alive longer to do what you need to do. If you’re wondering about how to block in Ghostwire Tokyo effectively, here’s the perfect guide for you.
How to Block in Ghostwire Tokyo
With our hero Akito fused with the spirit of the ghost hunter KK, you are not defenseless against the monsters known as the Visitors. In combat, anytime you want to block, simply press down on L1/left bumper to bring up a spirit shield. This will block the brunt of the attack, but you will still lose some health.
In order to prevent that, you will need to time your blocks for a perfect block. Similar to many other games, this requires you to trigger the block just as an attack connects, resulting in a perfect block complete with slow-mo and visual effects. This will prevent any damage, and if you learned the right skills, it might also generate ether for you to replenish your SP for offensive moves.
That’s is everything you need to know about how to block in Ghostwire Tokyo. For even more help for the game, be sure to head over to our other guides such as how to increase your SP or how to pet and feed the dogs.
