Red face how do you do a brave edge?

I can pull off a unblockable attack but I just can't seem to pull off a brave edge attack. Can anyone explain slowly the buttons and exactly how to do the move. I'll try any character but I normally play as Mitsurugi. thanks a bunch. is offline   Reply With Quote

The brave edge is pressing the X Y and the B button at the same time while doing a specific move. That button combination is also put on the right trigger by default. I use Xiba the most, so his is the only one I can explain off the top of my head. You can start one of his moves by pressing down to get him walking. As he is walking press X and before the move finishes pull the right trigger to do a brave edge. It works that way for every character.

If you pause the game you can also bring up a move list. It shows you exactly how to do every move for your character. The Brave edge attacks are marked with a "BE" to stand out. I hope this helps.

A quick and easy one is using Astaroth. Sidestep down and press RT and you'll do a brave edge uppercut with your axe. You need to have sufficient soul gauge power to do a brave edge though

The brave edge attacks vary depending on which character you pick. You need to fill at least a quarter of your soul gauge bar before you can perform one.
The easiest in my opinion is Nightmare.


Keep your eye on the text that appears under your HP bar. You will know when you've done one because it will say "Brave Edge" among other things, normally 2-3 hit counters.

Hope this helps.
