You will see enemies coming hard on you in Scott Pilgrim the Game Complete Edition. If you don’t have any friends to play with, this skirmish leads to frustration and repeated deaths over time. Fortunately, you can counter incoming attacks in-game, but the game itself can be imprecise about using this specific mechanic properly. This is a guide on how to counter attacks in Scott Pilgrim the Game Complete Edition.
From the start of the game, you won’t be able to counter any attacks unless you reach level 4 and unlock the skill of countering attacks, yes, countering an attack is a skill in this game that you can unlock once you have reached level 4. Now, reaching level 4 isn’t that difficult, all you need to do to reach level 4, to complete the first three levels by beating as many enemies as you can and purchase items in the store to gain experience and upgrade your characters as well.
Now, once you have reached level 4, you will be now notified that you are able to counter incoming attacks now by pressing the circle button on the PlayStation, the B button on Xbox One, and on Nintendo Switch, it is again the B button.
However, it is actually tricky to time your counters in Scott Pilgrim the Game Complete Edition. You might only need to press the counter button once before the attack lands on you instead of mashing the button. If you fail to do this action on time, the counter will be failed to result in damage infliction to your character.
Plus, you will need to make sure that you’re close enough to an enemy to counter them. The triggering attack has far more range than a normal attack, which means it won’t hit an enemy that attacked you without any failings. Similarly, if the counter-attack misses, then you will be open to attacks from enemies after you are cut out of the animation, which leaves you vulnerable to further attacks from the enemy.
You should always aim to trigger your counter when the enemy is near you so the failing chances reduce by a quite fair amount and to ensure that you don’t suffer damage after the counter animation wears off.
