How to Deflect & Counter Attacks in NieR Replicant
To deflect an attack, you only need to press L2 on PS and LT on Xbox One as soon as the enemy attacks you. If you’ll do it timely and correctly, you will see NieR parry the attack away, and that leaves the enemy open to a counter-attack.
For counterattack after deflecting, you have to attack while the enemy is still reacting stunned or backward. At the time of ranged attacks, you can deviate them and prevent yourself from damages you will not shock an enemy to open them up for a counter-attack.
On higher difficulty settings, deflecting attacks are worth using. Also, it is important to know that sometimes you are better off simply dodging attacks and get a few quick hits on an enemy after.
