Left-hand weapon actions
Right-hand weapon actions
Press the button while tapping forward (forward being relative to the direction the character is facing) to shove the enemy away and break their guard. Curved swords and rapiers will perform an evasive attack maneuver instead.
Attacking from behind or immediately after parrying an enemy attack will perform a critical attack, dealing more damage than a regular attack. Some enemies are immune to the damage bonus from critical attacks.
