Because he mixes close and long-ranged attacks, the boss fight against Sekiro Great Shinobi Owl is extremely difficult. You will be unable to capture a moment in safe areas.
How to kill the Sekiro Great Shinobi Owl boss
He will throw a Shinobi charm in the air if he falls to his knees. This is a bad sign and should be avoided. Your best option is to run behind him to get a few strikes while he’s on one knee.
He uses shurikens for his long-range attacks in the first phase. These can be deflected or dodged but are often followed by a jumping attack. If you do not comply with the rules, you can be punished. These are the easiest times for you to strike him in his first phase.
His second phase allows him to use poison instead of shurikens and gives him access to a smoke bomb strike. He can launch a smoke bomb and run from the area he was in. You risk being hit with a lot of damage if you don’t.
The poison attack cannot be deflected and must be avoided. However, the second phase of the attack is the same as before. Warning: Owls will Mikir Counter any attempt to use the charged thrust attack or spear, and you’ll likely die in one hit.
