Eavesdrop on Enemies
This is a great trick to discover new ways to beat your enemies. Go into stealth mode and start a conversation with an enemy. As you are having the conversation, pay proper attention as they might give up key information about the weaknesses of your enemies.
If you find it hard to beat a boss or any mini-boss you can choose to skip the battle, recover your health and go back. But you don’t need to tap out to skip a battle. You can use your grappling hook to quickly escape a fight scene.
Use The Axe Attachment
Once you get the Axe attachment you should never take it off for very good reasons. You can use it to break through shields as well as hit mini-bosses from the back.
The Dark Souls will teach you to wait for the ideal moment to strike. But it’s not always effective. In the majority of the cases, you should keep on striking your enemy. Keep up the pace, strike and make sure to block attacks.
Now that you know about the tricks to play Sekiro like a pro lets see how you can defeat the first two bosses of the game. After that, we will be moving on to the section where we talk about how you can defeat the Main Boss.
Sekiro – Jozuo the Drunkard Boss Guide
Jozuo the Drunkard is not the most difficult of boss you will see in Sekiro. However, many players find beating Jozuo very hard. The reason for this is because Jozuo the Drunkard is surrounded by a lot of mini-bosses. The strategy to defeat Jozuo the Drunkard is to take them solo. To do that, you need to first take the route at the left, this will allow you to creep around Jozou. As you are taking the left route, keep going on until you reach the guards stationed at the gates. Take out the guards but do not trigger the NPCs. After that slowly progress towards the Main Group. You can take some of the few Mini-Bosses using stealth kills. Once you are done killing the Group, follow back the route that you took in the first place.
Now go for Jozuo, if you stay on the constant move you can make Jozuo lose track of your whereabouts. Right then you can o a stealth move and stab him to take down his Health Bars. At this point, you might need some assistance. Quickly run to NPC and talk to him, he will fight alongside you. After NPC enters into the scene and as soon as Jozuo focuses on him instead of you, go in full swing towards Jozuo.

Now let’s talk about how you can beat the Final Boss. Isshin Ashina is the hardest boss in the game. To beat him, you need to do two things. First, you need to avoid the brutal strikes that Isshin Ashina will make so that you don’t lose your health too early. And secondly, you need to make quick hard strikes at him so that Isshin Ashina dies before you do.
Final Boss Guide
In the first phase of killing Isshin Ashina, try and avoid Perilous strikes. Look out for moments when he has both of his hands on the sword, that is when you know he is going for a big strike. Also while he is holding onto the sword with both of his hands, a rune will appear over his head. Try to deflect the first strike and dodge the second one.
Here is another trick to avoid losing health and incurring serious damage. Whenever Isshin Ashina sheaths his sword, he is probably going for a thrust up and a follow-up sweep. Try to deflect the first strike. Soon after that try to jump-kick him.
Another tip for avoiding incurring serious health damage. Whenever Isshin Ashina sheaths his weapon and ducks, he is going for a two-hit combo. There is no way to deflect the hit without experiencing serious damage to your health. You must dodge it.
In the second phase of beating Isshin Ashina, you might find him get more aggressive and hard to beat. However, he will see him making more of the overhead naginata strike. You can easily dodge this. And soon after Isshin Ashina has made an overhead naginata strike he is a bit vulnerable to strikes from you. So don’t miss that opportunity.
Now let’s talk about how you can cause quick and serious damage to Isshin Ashina. His charge-up sweeps might appear very dangerous, but once you get the timing right you can always dodge the strike and kick-jump him.
When Isshin Ashina makes a sweep at you, although you can incur damage you can slice him up real good in the aftermaths of it. This is because as he is pulling back his naginata he is vulnerable to strike and cannot defend him, this is when you can take a good strong strike at him.
