How to Use Unseen Aid & What It Is in Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice

Recommended Videos

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is essentially the spiritual successor to the Tenchu series, mixed with a little bit of FromSoftware’s trademark Dark Souls style. However, there’s a new mechanic to make things a little more approachable. Here’s how to use Unseen Aid and what it is in Sekiro.

What Unseen Aid Is

This is an entirely new mechanic for Sekiro, and it ties into the whole risk-reward system for resources and dying. Essentially, this new mechanic gives you a chance of retaining all of your money and skill experience when you die, instead of losing it.

If you’ve played a Souls-style game you’ll know that dying means you lose everything, and you’ll have to journey back to where you died in order to reclaim it. Then if you die it’s lost again. In Sekiro, you lose half of your skill experience and Sen with no way to pick it up after death, but Unseen Aid can help give you a chance to not lose anything when you die.

How to Use It

There actually isn’t a specific way to use the mechanic, as there’s simply a chance the skill will activate whenever you die. If your Unseen Aid percentage chance is high enough, you can keep everything when you die. But again, it’s not guaranteed. 

It’s also important to note that the more you die and use your resurrection mechanic in Sekiro, the lower your Unseen Aid chance will get as the Dragonrot disease continues to spread. This means that the more you resurrect the less likely it is you’ll retain everything, bumping up the risk-reward system even more.

Hopefully, that clears up how to use Unseen Aid and what it is in Sekiro. For even more tips, tricks, and guides make sure to search Twinfinite for whatever you might need. You can also check out our expansive Sekiro guide wiki.
