Ghost of Tsushima: Parrying
Ghost of Tsushima's parrying mechanic enables you to skillfully deflect an attack and leave the enemy open for a follow-up counter-attack.
You can parry enemy melee attacks and even projectiles, like arrows. Parry the target at the last possible moment to open them up.
By waiting to trigger L1 until the attack is about to land, you can change a block into a parry. The attacker will then become vulnerable to a counter-attack. Also, you will gain some amount of Resolve.
