Take part in one of the toughest boss battles Nioh 2: Ryomen Sukuna. Powered by dark magic, the devil is a monster with four arms and four legs, which is dangerous in all areas.
Putting him down will require patience, determination and some manipulation of his offensive style.
He can take some absolutely crazy moves and combos, which will kill you immediately. However, there are a few techniques you can use to increase the odds.
Nioh 2 – How to Beat Ryomen Sukuna
The trick to Ryomen Sukuna battle is to control the distance. You need to retreat to the edge of the arena, where you can respond to an attack he launched against you, shut it down as you proceed, and then succeed before retreating. The following video is a successful run of my first blind play of Nioh 2, where you can see the strategy.
In fact, his feet are very safe-where you can block the swing of the sword and bow-but many hits can quickly deplete your Ki, especially axe hits.
Usually, the blue archer side of Ryomen Sukuna is more dangerous. His ice arrows and spinning shots can kill you quickly, making it difficult to dodge. Due to the AoE damage caused by your guards, you can't even really stop them.
To alleviate a little pain, the red and blue crystals and scenery scattered around the arena often drop extra elixir-so pick them up as much as possible.
When fighting the red melee form, sprint his side of the ring of fire to attack because it will land on you.
Stay away from his sword combo, or block some hits with your primary weapon. Stay away from the axe and avoid staggering. With a lot of such melee combos, if you roll towards Ryomen's feet and slide down, you will come out unscathed and ready to fight back when he resets.
You either stand by his feet or by his hind legs. Watch out for subsequent attacks, but you can usually get some success here.
When he backs down his sword and leans down, he will charge you. You need to roll away sideways, or you can counterattack in Yokai Realm.
When an axe attacked, he lifted his hind legs and fell suddenly. Dodge rolled back diagonally.
In addition, there is a Burst Counter, which rotates the sword and axe once. If you are using Phantom or Feral Yokai Shift, make sure to fight back where he actually hit with a sword or axe, not his body-it's too easy to get too early.
On the side of the blue archer, you need to move away from his three-shot arrows, but you can roll under his rotating bow and arrow swing. Roll to his feet for revenge.
When he summons explosive birds, he can sprint around them or roll under them to get some free hit rates.
Then, as he leaned back and fired the ice arrow into the air, he sprinted away from the red circle.
For his Burst Counter, he shot the arrow around and I just flinched and avoided the hit. Other than that, I really don't know what you actually plan to do.
In the realm of monsters need Hit the blue archer's side. Otherwise, he will send ice arrows into the air, which is almost unavoidable and will kill you in an instant.
The tracking on these arrows is crazy. Absolutely crazy. And I'm not bitter at all.
To force the archer to touch you on one side, roll over his body with the blue side facing you. This should trigger it to switch to the master.
For some additional chip damage, you can shoot the corner as a weak point towards its head. Similarly, the blue side is weaker than fire, and the red side is weaker than water. Hit the crystals around the arena to infuse these elements into your weapon.
Summoning help is also pretty good in this battle, as it allows others to hit a few times when they get their place. Every bit helps.
After the battle, you will unlock more Guardians for your troubles, but the worst moment has not yet come.
