How To Block in Naraka Bladepoint

Because Naraka Bladepoint is a battle royale game that features fast-paced and aggressive combat, you'll need to do a lot more than spam attacks to win against your enemies. To survive in this game, players must master different fighting mechanics, including the fundamental technique of blocking enemy attacks to avoid or reduce incoming damage.

If you are unfamiliar with how to block in Naraka Bladepoint or are seeking ways to improve your blocking skills, then this guide is for you. Here, we will discuss the specific steps to block in Naraka Bladepoint, along with some helpful tips on how to effectively use blocking during combat to maximize its benefits.

How To Block in Naraka Bladepoint

Blocking in Naraka Bladepoint is pretty simple, regardless of the weapon you use, and once you get the hang of it, will become second nature to you, as it is with many other games. Below is a step-by-step instructional list on how to block in the game that will work for most enemies:

  1. Hold down the Right Mouse Button (RMB) on your mouse or hold down the left trigger on your controller to enter the blocking stance.
  2. While blocking, you can move around and rotate your character to defend against incoming attacks from different directions.
  3. Blocking consumes stamina, so make sure to manage your stamina effectively to avoid getting caught off-guard by your opponent's attacks.
  4. You can also perform a Perfect Block by pressing the RMB or left trigger just as your opponent's attack is about to land. A Perfect Block will not consume as much stamina as a regular block and will also stagger your opponent, leaving them open for a counter-attack, similar to parrying in Souls games.

Now, as we mentioned earlier, not all attacks can be blocked in Naraka Bladepoint. Some attacks, such as grabs and certain special moves, cannot be blocked and will require a different defensive maneuver. For instance, Normal attacks can only counter normal attacks, Blue focus attacks only counter blue-focus attacks, and Counter attacks block and disarm blue-focus attacks.
