View Full Version : Break Defense

11-15-2007, 11:59 AM
Has anyone who's been playing through learned how to do the break defense move. The tutorial just tells me to press x after a step. I've tried everything but have not been successful yet. I know I don't need to know this move but I'm not one for "Rinse and Repeat." I like to mix my fighting up. Does anyone have any tips on this move?

360, sorry probably should have put that.

I had a little trouble with this as well at first. Step is an actual action, not just movement. To perform a step you just press A while locked onto a target.

it's quite easy actually, you press attack after you've pressed "step", this is general information so you can do it on both consoles

make sure there's considerable room between you and the guard, press the "step" button and you'll leap towards him, and sometime between his "step" press attack, two things may occur
1. you faked him with the break and pretty much kills him
2. his sword gets deflected to his right side.

though sometimes you kill the guard using break defense for some reason, you should tap attack a few more times right after, just to be on the safe side
