Counter is a Attack Chip in Nier: Automata.
Move toward an enemy attack with perfect timing to counter it.
Effects & Uses
- When an enemy attacks you are able to push the control stick towards the enemy, countering their attack and giving you more room to retaliate as Dodging takes a bit longer.
- Counter even works when your evasive systems are down, or if you're recovering (From self-destruct, over extended B-mode or story points where you have limited manuverabilty and can't dodge.) This is due to the fact Counter is a chip, not an actual evasive action.
- This chip can effectively render you near immortal from some bosses that rely on direct attacks. Allowing you to attack with impunity while mashing the control stick towards your enemy while attacking.
